Polk Audio DSW Pro 600
Black, 16.5 in x 16.5 in x 17.1 in
The DSW PRO Series represents more than a significant step forward in subwoofer performance. Rather, with the incorporation of two proprietary Polk Audio technologies that offer clearly discernable benefits, you might want to think of the DSW PRO Series as representing a new subwoofer performance standard.

Notify your Polk Audio dealer if you notice any damage or missing items. Keep the carton and packing material. It will do the best job of protecting your subwoofer if it needs to be transported.
Feet/Carpet Spikes DSWPRO Series subwoofers have removable feet. Each foots shaft is also a carpet spike, which allows you to place your subwoofer on a carpeted floor. To remove the conical feet from the carpet spike, grasp a foot firmly and turn the foot clockwise while pulling up. Three complete turns should raise the foot enough to allow you to place your fingertips under the foot and pull it off the spike.
Your system includes a detachable power cord thats packaged separately from the subwoofer. Insert the female end into the receptacle on the amplifier plate and insert the AC plug into a wall outlet (or power strip) as per the safety instructions PLACING YOUR SUBWOOFER IN A CABINET found on the inside cover of this manual. We do not recommend connecting DSWPRO Series subwoofers have removable feet, allowing you to place the subwoofers AC power cord to your receivers switched outlet. the subwoofer in a cabinet, thereby reorienting the subwoofers driver so that it faces into your listening room.
PLACING YOUR SUBWOOFER IN A ROOM
Your DSWPRO Series subwoofer is magnetically shielded for placement near video monitors. (LCD, DLP and Plasma televisions are not affected by magnetism.) Allow at least 18" (46cm) of space between your subwoofer and any tube television, but if you do notice video distortion or discoloration, immediately move the subwoofer away from the TV. The Polk Room Optimizer (PRO) feature lets you place your subwoofer anywhere in the room without compromising performance. When placing your subwoofer in the room, always place your subwoofer on its base, feet side down. If you can avoid it, do not place your subwoofer next to an open door.
18" - 24" (46cm - 61cm)
Note: The remote control may not operate when the subwoofer is placed in a cabinet with the driver facing into the room. If this occurs, adding an IR repeater will enable the remote control to communicate with the subwoofer.

We do recommend placing your subwoofer in different locations within your room to learn what produces the best sound quality based upon your listening preferences. The PRO feature will tailor your subwoofers performance to its location in your room. Select one of the four buttons on your subwoofers remote control that indicates where youve placed your subwoofer in the room. (For more on this feature, see Polk Room Optimizer.) For more information on subwoofer placement, go to www.polkaudio.com/education/article.php?id=20.

AC POWER CONNECTION AND AUTO ON/OFF
Dual Voltage Switch DSWPRO Series subwoofers are equipped with either a dual voltage switch or an auto sensor. DSWPRO400 DSWPRO500 DSWPRO600 Auto Sense Selectable Selectable Standby With the switch in this position, the subwoofer will only turn on (become active) when the user presses the power button on the remote control. Once active the subwoofer will remain on regardless of whether an audio signal is present. Auto In the Auto position, your subwoofer automatically turns on when it senses an audio signal and the LED located on the back of the subwoofer will be green. We recommend the Auto mode if your subwoofer is always receiving power (i.e., if it's plugged into a wall outlet). When no signal is present, the subwoofer will enter a waiting state after 15 minutes and the LED will turn yellow. On The subwoofer is always on and fully active in this mode. The LED on the back of the subwoofer will be green. This mode is best if the subwoofer is plugged into a switched power outlet. The remote control cannot be used to turn off the subwoofer. Note: You may want to leave your subwoofer unplugged or the AC MAIN switch turned off during extended periods of non use, such as during a vacation. Power Mode LED Colors and Their Meaning: Green: Fully active Yellow: Standby Red: Protection
WARNING: The correct voltage for your country has been set at the factory. Only use the voltage setting specified for your country. Using an improper setting may damage your subwoofer. Main Power Switch Turn power on/off via the AC MAIN switch. Standby/Auto/On Switch Your DSWPRO Series subwoofer uses a 3-position power switch, which selects your subwoofers operational mode. The three modes are: Standby, Auto and On.

CONNECTING THE SUBWOOFER TO THE SYSTEMHOOKUP OPTIONS
IMPORTANT NOTE: USE ONLY ONE OF THESE OPTIONS. NEVER COMBINE HOOKUP OPTIONS. OPTION #1 Receivers that include a SUB OUT feature the most common hookup method with Dolby Digital and DTS receivers.
(Artwork not to scale)
Making Binding Post/Speaker Wire Connections Note that one of the speaker input terminals on the rear of the subwoofer is marked red (+) and the other black (-). Make certain that you connect the wire from the red (+) terminal of your receiver to the red (+) terminal on your subwoofer and the wire from the black (-) terminal of the receiver to the black (-) terminal on your subwoofer. Speaker wire has some indication (such as color coding, ribbing, or writing) on one of the two conductors to help maintain consistency. Note: If your subwoofer doesnt seem to produce much bass, it is most likely that one of the speaker wires is connected backwards. Double check all connections for correct polarity. Strip 1/2" (12mm) of insulation from each of the two conductors on both ends to expose the bare wire. Twist the exposed wire of each conductor to form two un-frayed strands (one on each end). Unscrew the binding post hex nuts several turns. Insert the exposed wire, ensuring that none of the bare wire ends touch each other, because contact could result in an electrical short and cause your receiver to turn off or malfunction.
Connect a single RCA cable from the SUB OUT of your receiver to the LFE input of the subwoofer. This connection method bypasses the subwoofers internal filter and relies on the filter built into your receiver. Make no other signal connections. Do not use speaker wire to make the connection to the subwoofer. Connect all other speakers directly to the receiver. Adjust your receivers speaker configurations as follows: Front speakers = SMALL Center and Surrounds = SMALL Subwoofer = ON, YES, or PRESENT Depending on your front speakers bass output capabilities, set the crossover frequency on the receiver to 80Hz for tower and bookshelf speakers (speakers with a woofer 5 1/4" in diameter or larger) and 100-120Hz for satellite speakers. Consult your receivers owners manual for instructions. OPTION #2 Two channel or Dolby Pro Logic receiver with no SUB OUT. Use two-conductor 16 gauge or thicker speaker wires. See your Polk Audio dealer for wire recommendations. Note: Do not use the line or LFE input in this configuration. Connect the left and right front speaker outputs of your receiver to the speaker level inputs of the subwoofer using speaker wire (see Making Binding Post/Speaker Wire Connections for detailed instructions). Connect the left and right front speakers using speaker wire from the speaker level outputs from the subwoofer. Connect the center channel speaker directly to the center channel output from your receiver. Connect the rear surround satellites directly to the rear or surround channel outputs from your receiver. Adjust your receivers speaker configurations as follows: Front speakers = LARGE Subwoofer = OFF or NO Center and Surrounds = SMALL
With the speaker wire inserted into the binding post, turn the hex nut clockwise until it's snug.
OPTION #3 Receivers with full-range (unfiltered) Left and Right Pre Out jacks (this is the least commonly used hookup)
POLK ROOM OPTIMIZER (PRO) Where you place your subwoofer in your room affects its response. DSWPRO Series subwoofers incorporate the Polk Room Optimizer ( PRO) featurefour pushbutton room equalization presets that maximize your subwoofers performance for typical room placements: cabinet, corner, mid-wall and mid-room. A traditional subwoofers response is affected by its location in a room. The Polk Room Optimizer (PRO) feature allows you to place your DSWPRO Series subwoofer where you want it in your listening room. Based upon the four most common room placements for subwoofers, PRO maximizes sound quality for you, smoothing out the bass response that a particular room placement creates. You simply choose the location you want and select the corresponding button on your subwoofers remote control. FINE TUNING YOUR SUBWOOFER Volume: Adjust by ear using a wide variety of CDs and video sources. Adjust for deep, powerful bass without boominess. Low Pass Filter Control: NOTE: This control does not operate when the subwoofer is connected with Option #1 (LFE Input). This control, which is located on the back of the amplifier, adjusts the frequency range over which the subwoofer operates. When using smaller main speakers the upper range of the control will probably yield the best results. With larger speakers the lower end of the control range will probably sound best, but always let your ear be the final judge. If male vocals sound thin, turn this control up until the voice sounds rich but not boomy. If male vocals sound too thick or chesty, turn this control down until the voice sounds natural. 4 Button Phase Control (0, 90, 180 and 270 degree settings): This control enables the subwoofer to blend more seamlessly with your main speakers. Sit in your favorite listening position. Using the subwoofers remote control, play music (not a movie) with a walking bass line. We recommend playing jazz or country music. Now listen carefully for the point at which the subwoofer transitions to your main speakers. This is the crossover point, and this point should be below the frequency of a male human voice. Whichever phase setting sounds louder or fuller at the subwoofers crossover (transition) point is the optimum setting. If after trying all four possible phase settings you cannot hear any difference, leave the phase setting at 0.
Connect the left and right preamp outputs from your receiver to the left and right LINE LEVEL inputs of the subwoofer. Do not use speaker wires. Connect the left and right LINE LEVEL outputs to the left and right inputs on the power amplifier. Adjust the settings on your receiver as follows: Front speakers = LARGE Subwoofer = OFF or NO
ADJUSTING YOUR SUBWOOFER
Note: When you set up your subwoofer for the first time, you will probably have to make adjustments several times before you hear what you personally like. Dont forget to turn the AC MAIN power switch on. INITIAL SETTINGS Your powered subwoofer offers a range of settings. The units initial settings are as follows: Phase: 0 Volume: 50% (20, on a scale from 0-40) PRO setting: mid-room The settings that are best for you depend upon your subwoofer placement, electronics and personal taste. After youve become familiar with what the settings do, experiment with alternate options to find the method that works best for your system setup. Youll find an informative article on Subwoofer Positioning and Adjustment in the set up section at: www.polkaudio.com/education/article.php?id=19.
DSWPRO REMOTE CONTROL
DSWPRO Series subwoofers come with a credit card sized remote control. All commands are sent to the subwoofer via IR control. The IR receiver is located on the front of the subwoofer when the subwoofer is in its downward firing configuration. The remote control has the following features: Power Volume 4 Button Phase Control (0, 90, 180 and 270 degree settings) 4 Button Polk Room Optimizer (PRO) presets Mute function Night function allows you to hear low-level bass detail at lower volumes. If you have the volume at 30 and press night, the volume is reduced by 50%, in this example to 15. Pressing night a second time restores the volume to its original setting. Pressing Volume+ (or Volume-) incrementally increases (or decreases) the volume in the normal manner and takes the subwoofer out of night mode. Also, the LED shines at a reduced intensity when the subwoofer is in night mode. Reset button restores the woofers settings to factory presets. Hold down for two (2) seconds. LED turns LED On/Off. The amplifier remains active. Important: To activate the remote control for the first time, remove the plastic tab.

WHAT IS THAT BLINKING BLUE LIGHT?
Behind the logo badge on the front of your subwoofer there is a blue LED. The blue light blinks whenever you press a button on the subwoofers remote control. The light lets you know that the subwoofer has received the command and is enabling the function youve selected. The following table describes each buttons function and how the LED communicates to you: Power LED is on when power is active and is off when power is not active. (Pressing the LED button on the remote will also turn the LED off.) LED will blink a 2-digit code indicating volume setting from 0 to 40 (i.e., if the volume is turned up to 28, the LED will flash two long blinks followed by eight short blinks). LED blinks slowly when mute is selected. 0 degrees1 blink; 90 degrees2 blinks; 180 degrees3 blinks; 270 degrees4 blinks. LED is on at a lower intensity; volume is reduced by 50%. Cabinet1 blink; Corner2 blinks; Mid-wall3 blinks; Mid-room4 blinks. LED will blink 4 times. Turns LED on/off. The amplifier remains active
Mute Phase Night PRO Presets Reset LED
No sound coming from subwoofer. If hookup is SUB OUT to LFE, check and make sure your receiver is set to Subwoofer=YES. If hookup is via speaker wire, check that the polarity of the wires is correct. Adjust volume, low pass filter, phase and PRO settings. There could be interference from a cable TV line. Disconnect the cable TV line from the cable box to see if the hum stops. A low-level hum is normal. Is the AC MAIN switch on? Check outlet; check fuse after unplugging the subwoofer. The fuse is located under the power cord receptacle. Fuse type and rating is found on the back panel. Remove the plastic tab to activate the remote controls battery or try replacing the battery. Ensure the IR sensor is not blocked. Unplug subwoofer for 15 minutes, then plug back in.
