Product Research


10" Woofer: The Klipsch Reference series R-10SW powered sub is fitted with a powerful 10" copper-spun IMG (injected molded graphite) front-firing woofer for deep bass. The copper-spun IMG woofer is exceptionally light while being extremely rigid, providing remarkable low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and distortion. The front-firing woofer gives you greater placement flexibility than a down-firing woofer.

150 Watt Amp: The Klipsch R-10SW powered sub employs an all-digital 150 watt RMS (300 watt Peak) amplifier for high efficiency and dynamic bass performance.

MDF Cabinet: The R-10SW is housed in a durable MDF cabinet and finished with a brushed black polymer veneer. The MDF enclosure is rigid and protects against unwanted vibration and distortion.

Rear Firing Port: The R-10SW's enclosure uses a bass reflex design with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass.

Controls: The level control, low pass crossover, and phase control allow you to blend the powered subwoofer's low-frequency tones with your system's other speakers, as well as establish the ideal level of bass.

  • Level Control: The level control adjusts the subwoofer's volume relative to the rest of your home audio system. After the sub's level control has been set, the volume control of your AV receiver will be the volume control for both the Klipsch powered subwoofer and your connected loudspeakers.
  • Low Pass Crossover: The variable lowpass crossover is adjustable from 40-120Hz. The crossover point chosen determines where low bass frequencies are "handed-off" from your AV system's loudspeakers to the Klipsch powered subwoofer. Set the crossover point based on the size of your systems' main left/right speakers.
  • Phase Control: This control is used to acoustically match the subwoofer's output to your main speakers. Select the position either 0˚ or 180˚ in which your subwoofer has more output at the listening position.

LFE/RCA Inputs: The Klipsch R-10SW powered subwoofer is equipped with a pair of line-level RCA-type inputs to connect the sub to your receiver or integrated amplifier.

  • LFE Input: Most of today's AV receivers have a line-level subwoofer output (LFE). If your receiver has an LFE output, connect one end of a subwoofer cable (sold separately) to this output and connect the other end of the cable into the powered subwoofer's line-level input labeled "LEFT/LFE". Set the powered sub's built-in crossover to "LFE" with this type of connection.
  • Stereo Input: In absence of a subwoofer (LFE) output on your receiver, as an alternative hookup, you can connect Left & Right channel pre-amp outputs from the receiver to both the "Left/LFE" and "Right" inputs on the powered subwoofer.

LED Indicator: The front-mounted LED power indicator lets you know when the sub is powered on or off. The LED will light green when the powered subwoofer is on and receiving a signal. If the LED is dark and not lit, the powered sub is off.

Auto Power On/Off: The powered subwoofer will automatically turn On when it senses an audio signal. It will automatically go into "Standby mode" after 15-20 minutes with no audio signal. You can also choose to turn the powered sub On or Off manually from the rear-switch on the back.

Placement: Klipsch powered subwoofers are designed to reproduce deep bass and deliver the impact that makes your movies and music come alive. For optimum performance, place your subwoofer in a corner of the room on the same wall as your front channel speakers. Please note that room placement can have a dramatic effect on the performance of your powered subwoofer. Corner placement, as suggested above, will increase the amount of bass output, while placing the subwoofer along the middle of a wall, or out in the room will decrease the amount of bass output.

I was shopping for a subwoofer to replace the weak performing Sony subwoofer that came bundled with my Sony sound-bar. I was looking for a $200-$300 (no more than $400) subwoofer to pair with my Klipsch R-28F floorstanding speakers & Onkyo TX-RZ620 receiver. Basically it was between Polk or Klipsch. The Klipsch R-10SW had nearly 5 stars but a few scathing reviews. I bounced my concerns off of Jess (from Crutchfield) who shared her honest input which I relied on to make my final decision. [ William F.  Nov 11, 2018 ]

My friends and I say Klipsch is the blue collar worker of speakers. Plus Crutchfield sells them. Need I say more? [ Kevin  Mar 24, 2018 ]
My Mirage Speakers sub was blown. Klipsch sent me an email detailing their sale so I bought it through Crutchfield because I always buy my audio gear from Crutchfield. They have a great site and service. [ MICHAEL  Feb 10, 2018 ]
My old s/w died. [ Frank  Jan 28, 2018 ]
Based on the reviews that I read for this sub woofer it sounds like it should work well with my system. Now I am anxious to give it a try and see...or should I say hear it! [ Charles  Jan 12, 2018 ]
Excellent reviews and a good price [ John  Jan 10, 2018 ]
I had a POLK sub that died after 4 years. This fits the same space so I thought I would try a new brand. [ Brian  Dec 31, 2017 ]
Good price point. Taking a spin on the Klipsch name. System demands are not intensive. [ Daniel  Dec 21, 2017 ]
I'm updating my system to use 2 subwoofers so I chose this as a replacement for a big Acoustic Research sub. I'm sure these Klipsch subs will provide plenty of low end thump for movies and video gameplay. [ David  Dec 19, 2017 ]

Want to feel that deep bass. [ glenna  Aug 05, 2017 ]

You need a receiver with a subwoofer output. You connect the subwoofer with a cable connected to subwoofer out on the receiver and connect the bookshelf speakers with speaker wiring to the receivers main speaker output. [ matt  Jul 20, 2018 ]
No, it doesn't come with a remote control. Most of the time a sub-woofer is set-and-forget, however. Once you get it dialed in, you probably won't ever need to touch the controls again. [ James  Apr 05, 2018 ]
No remote control. Manual controls are on the back. Has an auto switch which adjusts automatically if you choose to use [ Scott  Apr 05, 2018 ]
It does not [ Sumeet  Apr 05, 2018 ]
Nope. [ Efren  Apr 05, 2018 ]
It does not come with a remote. [ E  Apr 05, 2018 ]
No [ John  Apr 05, 2018 ]
No it does not include a remote. It connects to the sub output on your receiver. So Level is controlled by your receiver. [ John  Apr 05, 2018 ]
No it does not come with a remote [ Gregory  Apr 05, 2018 ]
No. [ Paul  Apr 05, 2018 ]
Fred no it does not [ Ken  Apr 05, 2018 ]
No, it does not come with a remote control. [ Brian  Apr 05, 2018 ]
This sub does not come with a remote controller. [ Jacob  Apr 05, 2018 ]
The cable I am using has no grounds. It is just plugged straight into the CFE inputs on the receiver and the sub. I have had no problems. I think my receiver also has a hookup for a ground, but I have nothing attached to it. You might try a different cable with no ground wire, or just unhook the ground wire both places, but that is just a guess. I did struggle a little initially with the setup with left/right vs CFE, but I went CFE on rec to CFE (which I think was the left input on the sub) and after I did that receiver setup with the receiver mike, it worked like a charm. [ Eric  May 26, 2017 ]
I really don't think so. In an outdoor setting, this speaker would soon be ruined. Check out Crutchfields big selection of outdoor speakers on line. Daniel L [ DANIEL L  May 04, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best sub I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the models to confirm compatibility and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Kenny  Nov 12, 2016 ]  Staff
Hi Jason, I have been using the R-10SW for a couple of years now in a room that is 17' x 15' and I am very happy with this powered sub woofer. Outside of what your budget permits I would base my choice on where I am going to place my sub woofer. If you must place your sub close to a wall than a sub that is ported out the front should be considered. Most manuals will tell you to stay a certain distance from a wall if your sub is ported out the rear. Jim [ JAMES S  Apr 19, 2016 ]
I have both. The sw-110 is in the living room, the r-10sw is in the theatre room. The r-10sw has a port in the back and seems to deliver a bigger, fuller sound. They are both driven by Yamaha home theatre receivers. If 50.00 bucks is no object I would recommend the r-10sw. hope this helps. [ roger  Apr 19, 2016 ]
The inputs to this speaker are "line-level" (RCA jacks), not an amplified signal from you amp. See "Specs" tab at /R-10SW/details at the manufacturers website [ Jeffrey  Mar 02, 2015 ]
TheThe doThe literature doesn't specify that I can find but I suspect it's 8 ohms. It's powered so I'm not sure it matters since there's no way to daisy-chain it to another speaker. Btw, this unit really helps solidify the bottom and the gain is easily varied by easily reaching the control on the back without moving anything so you can adjust according to your program material.

8 Ohms. [ LARRY  Mar 02, 2015 ]
