Features & Specifications

The PS10 subwoofer is a front-firing, free-standing and fully powered 10-inch subwoofer. This is an ideal subwoofer for a home theater or a small to medium size room where you wish to have full, powerful sound. If you're looking to replace your home theatre subwoofer (not working?), the PS10 is one you should seriously consider as a replacement. The OSD Audio PS10 high performance home theater subwoofer has speaker level inputs and delivers 125 watts of power.

What Are the Benefits of A Front-Firing Subwoofer?
As the smaller sibling of the PS12, the PS10 is a front-firing subwoofer. Both models complement OSD's down firing subwoofers. Front-firing subwoofers provide a lower frequency range of 25 Hz to 180 Hz, whereas down-firing subwoofers have a low frequency range of 50 Hz to 250 Hz. This requires more output power while using upgraded components that include a longer throw woofer for farther sound projection. The custom cabinet for the PS10 is designed to have both a front-firing woofer and dual front firing ports. Because of this design, you can place it close to a wall or tucked into a corner.

from Wisconsin asked:
January 18, 2017
I see photos of this sub without the sloping edges on Amazon and the amp has fins. Is that the older version of the sub? If I order now, what version will I get?
1 Answers
Hi Ram: The model with the Fins has been discontinued for more than a year. Your best bet is to order directly from Outdoor Speaker depot which has only the newer version in stock. Make sure you speak with a salesperson who can verify the new PS10. TL/4184

from Northampton, MA asked:
October 7, 2017
In the description of the PS10 you mention it has two front ports that allow you to tuck it into a cabinet. That appears to be for the older design. The images of the newer design show a single, rear port. Does this mean it's no longer suitable for placement in a cabinet? Also, what is the RMS power of the amplifier?
1 Answers
Hi Nick: You are correct the dual front firing port was specifically designed for placing in a cabinet. The current PS-10 will work in a cabinet but will sound different with the rear firing port coupling inside the cabinet. You still have the active front firing driver doing the bulk of the work. We have a 30 day performance guarantee so you can buy it and try it. You can also make some adjustments like stuffing some fiber fill into the port. That will make it thinks it is working in a larger enclosure. And if it does not sound exactly as you want it you can return for full refund. Just remember to keep all the packing material in case you end up returning the sub. TL/4578

from Trinidad asked:
February 9, 2017
I am interested in building a 2 zone indoor/outdoor audio system using the attached equipment. Do I need an Amp as well as an AV receiver to power the system? And.....If the AV Receiver ALONE will do the job....can you recommend one?
1 Answers
HI Nathaniel: You have two options from us. First would be a combination AMP 200 and our Pre1 Pre amplifier which would basically duplicate a receiver less the AM/FM Tuner. The second choice a more affordable option but still quite good would be our new XMP-100 Digital Amplifier along with the Pre1 pre amplifier as well. In both cases the Amplifiers have speaker A and Speaker B. A could be outdoor and speaker B could be indoor. Also choose Input source #2 for the AMP200 and Main input on the XMP 100. Both inputs feature a dedicated output to connect to your Subwoofer. Then checkout adding either an external WiFi or Bluetooth Receiver or both. You have 4 inputs on the Pre One including a phono pre amp. Checkout the Logitech Bluetooth receiver on line. TL/4211 Note: I believe you submitted a request through our upload your plans feature. My contact info is tim@osdaudio.com if you need further clarification.

Why is this more expensive than your 12"? I am deciding between the two for a 5.1 system. I watch mostly movies and xbox.
1 Answers
Hi Xtian: The PS12 listed on our site is a closeout, once they are gone there will be a new PS12 similar to the new PS-10 replacing it on line. The new PS12 features a rear port like the new PS-10. The original PS12 has a few more features. Note the Speaker level input/output not found on our new version. The PS12 at the price is a great deal. TL/4157

I have a Denon receiver with 2 RCA subwoofer outputs. My PS10 sub only has L and R line input. I am not getting any sound on either input that I plug into. I used a 50 ft. RCA cable.

Hi Nino, What kind of cable are you running from your receiver to the subwoofer and from which output on the receiver?

Thanks for responding so quickly. I will be connecting a OSD AMP 200 to zone 2 on the A710 to power dual speakers in the bedroom, dining room, and outside patio, so I can't zone 2 as you recommended. However, the AMP 200 will be connected to a DSM4 speaker selector which will have an unused zone. Could I connect the PS10 (using level line) to this empty zone on the DSM4 as "speaker selector A" position will be transmitting what is playing through my home theater system?Thanks for responding so quickly.

Hi Kevin: Based upon your response there maybe a solution for your application that can be implemented with out adding anything (using what you have already) to your system. Again I am assuming you are only connecting a single source (Zone two audio output from the Yamaha Receiver) to the AMP200. If that is the case then you may be able to connect the dedicated subwoofer output from the Yamaha directly to the input #2 of the AMP200 with a combination of single subwoofer cable and a single Female RCA to dual Male RCA Y Adapter so you can plug in a single connector to the (mono) subwoofer output of the Yamaha Receiver. Then use the Y adapter to connect to both the Right and left input on input #2. Now connect one end of the the four conductor cable to Speaker B output of the AMP200 and the other end (coming out of the wall in your Home Theater room) to the Right and Left (+/-) input of the PS10 Powered Sub-woofer. Here is the trade off... you would be able to play your Home Theater System with your Sub-woofer operating as the .1 of the 6.1 system. This is also hoping you will have enough speaker connections pre-wired into the room to accommodate the six channels plus two more for the Sub. But you would only be able to listen to the Home Theater (Zone 2 would have to be off) since you would need to make sure the AMP200 has no signal into input (or source) #1. Input #2 only plays if input #1 is inactive. But you would have the subwoofer be active as intended for a true 6.1 system. I am thinking with the Yamaha you have the ability to play both the Home Theater System and Zone 2 at the same time but you will have to defeat the Sub-woofer output from the Yamaha remote so it adds the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) through the Front stage speakers (the Left, Center and Right speaker). It would be a bit of a compromise versus having the PS-10 active in the system but you would be able to play both the Home Theater and Zone 2 whole house at the same time. Please let me know what you think... Good luck TL

I have a Yamaha Rx-A710 and That I am building a whole house audio around. My house is prewired, and my subwoofer outlet is wired with 4 wire speaker wire instead of RCA connections. So I can't use the subwoofer RCA output on the Yamaha receiver to connect a PS 10 (unless I run a subwoofer cable outside the wall - which I perfer not to do for asthetics) . Which R and L level Line speaker outlets on the A710 should I connect the subwoofer to (I will be doing a 6.1 surround sound so I only have one open speaker connection --the right back surround sound)? Do Ihave to do stero to the subwoofer if use a level line connection? Can I hook more than one speaker to each connection on the back of the A710? Thanks.
1 Answers
Hi Kevin, I feel your pain. There may be a solution but you may have to verify this with Yamaha, the manufacturer of the receiver. First, are you using the Zone 2 Speaker outputs also listed as zone2-prescenece? You did not mention doing anything other than powering the 6.1 system. If that is true you may be able to connect the four conductors to the speaker level outputs listed as zone 2-prescence. Then from your wall plate, connect to the speaker level inputs (right and left)of the PS-10 Sub-woofer, making sure to connect positive to positive and negative to negative. In the configuration (see page 91 in your manual), make sure you enable the presence connection and then disable sub-woofer (no sub connected). Once the sub-woofer output shows disconnected, the low frequencies are converted to LFE and channeled through the front-stage speakers which I am assuming includes the presence speakers. On the subwoofer itself, you will set the high cut filter to half way and set the gain level to match your standard listening levels. Once you set it, the volume will be controlled by the receiver. You should call Yamaha support to ask them if this is possible. The problem you would have using channel seven is the surround frequency for the side centers might not be full range, thus limiting low frequencies to your sub. I hope that is not too confusing. I attended a Yamaha training just yesterday and learned about the presence. Too bad I did not have your question earlier or I would have asked their specialists. In theory this should work, pretty cool. Good luck... TL/MA

Can you tell me what this subwoofer weighs? It's not listed. There are no dimensions specified either. Lastly, what's the true frequency response? It says 5Hz-180Hz, but it can't possibly get down to 5Hz.
2 Answers
Weight for both the PS-10 and PS-12 appear in the download Tab-Owners Manual: Net Weight (out of the shipping box): 29.17 lbs Gross Weight (with all the packing material): 36.38lbs The manual does not give you dimensions for the PS-10 but here they are: PS-10: 13 1/2" L x 14 1/4" D x 13 1/2" H (plus 2"or 15 1/2"H with feet) Regarding the both the PS-10 and PS-12 Frequency Response of 5Hz to 180Hz The true specification should be 25Hz to 180Hz.. We are making the corrections to our owners manual, product information and our web site. Both the PS-10 and PS-12 Subs were created for Home Theater applications where they are connected to the LFE output of the AV receiver. Both subs have no problem working with whatever you can dial up for low frequency effects. One of the advantages of the Front firing Speaker and Port design is that it allows you to build it into a custom media center cabinet. This along with the Auto-on sensing allows you to set it and forget it.

This thing is a beast
I added this as the SW in my 5.1 home theater set up. My room is approximately 12x15, and this subwoofer far surpasses my expectations. The low end response is incredible. It is deep and rich, and feels like it would shake the house off the foundation if I really cranked it up. Even at low volume levels it adds a great level of ambience. Love it. I think it would be more than adequate for a room twice the size. I really like the design too, all the way down to the "pointy" feet that help it make better contact with the floor if you have carpet.
