DB1042 DVC

10” Dual Voice-Coil Subwoofer with Marine Certification


Our DB+ Series Subwoofers utilize our patented Dynamic Balance Technology to combine Polypropylene woofers, non-resonant materials, and exceptional power handling for crystal clear sound with deep, effortless bass. Their slimmed down form factor reduces the need for oversized subwoofer enclosures. Plus, our dual voice coil (DVC) subwoofers offer multiple impedance connections, allowing you to better match the performance of your amplifier for higher potential power. You get a look that goes virtually unnoticed—but a sound that doesn’t.

Marine Certified

DB+ Series Subwoofers are IP56 rated so they are dirt- and water-resistant. They also have been tested for salt-fog, UV and humidity. A big part of that marine certification also means that each subwoofer has a UV tolerant cone, waterproof surrounds, and stainless steel mounting hardware, ensuring that they are fully protected against the elements

Designed To Go The Extra Mile

All Polk loudspeakers rely on our patented process to eliminate electro-acoustic and mechanical issues before they become a part of the finished speaker and are also rigorously tested through Polk’s Klippel distortion analyzers. DB+ Series Subwoofers, in addition to offering IP56 waterproof rating and Marine Certification, have waterproof surrounds that completely block dirt, liquid and grime from entering the speaker housing, all designed to maximize longevity of the speaker.


Five Decades Of American Loudspeaker Engineering

DB+ Series Subwoofers benefits from decades of Polk’s premium loudspeaker engineering experience and were designed at our original Acoustic Research and Development facility in Owings Mills, Maryland. Our goal since 1972 has been to build great speakers that not only play loud, but also play crystal clear sound with effortless bass. The result of this 50-year engineering heritage is best-in-class subwoofers backed by numerous awards, patents, and fans like you.

We’ve achieved this by constant innovation and by leaving nothing to chance. Accessibly priced, built to exceed our patented quality-testing process, and designed to provide Polk’s legendary effortless bass, DB+ Series Subwoofers fulfill the Polk promise of great sound for all.
