Polk Monitor XT10 Subwoofer Joins Affordable Atmos Range

Polk adds Monitor XT10 subwoofer to its affordable Dolby Atmos loudspeaker range, announced in August 2022.

The Polk Monitor XT10 subwoofer offers a 10-inch “high-performance” alternative to the already-announced Monitor XT12 unit.

The Monitor XT10 (MXT10) features a 50W RMS (100W peak) Class D amplifier powering a 10-inch long-throw, high-excursion driver that promises “deep, effortless bass” all the way down to 24Hz.

Where the MXT12 sub is rear-ported, the MXT10 matches its critically braced cabinet with a down-firing port designed to minimise resonances and sonic interference. According to Polk Audio, this results in a defined, room-filling low end.

Furthermore, the company aims for the MXT10 to be plug-and-play thanks to its versatile line-level/LFE inputs that are compatible with most audio receivers. In addition, a consistently variable crossover, low-pass filter, polarity switch, and subwoofer volume control enables you to fine-tune bass response from subtle low-end enhancement or room-shaking rumble.

Naturally, the MXT10 has been designed to slot into the Monitor XT range of speakers and subwoofers, which are all timbre-matched for a cohesive sound signature. This allows you the freedom to mix and match components to create your dream audio system.

The Polk Monitor XT10 is available to buy now, priced at $299 USD.

applause awards

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
