I bought these as an addition to an already existing p.a. and to add to my studio / sound inventory. I have used one , experimwenting... as a 2nd cabinet for my bass, adding it as a replacement for my emminence 15 bass cab, along with a peavy rwin 10 inch bass cab. The mids are much more pronounced compared to the emminence. the lows matching, possibly a little bit more clean, not as muffled. I find it a bit odd at the reviews of this cab and other producys at musicians friend about defect issues. I have made to date i think 51 purchases here and only one damage/defect issue. i bought a super cheap fretless,, you can guess the brand for a bill. it came with the strap peg jammed into the body, like it was dropped straight down. a little glue and tooth picks and done. Anyways, for the price these do the job they were made for. i suggest pairing these with at least a pair or 2 of 15 inch cabs with horns and maybe a pair of 10 or 12 inch cabs with horns. uset them up for what they are intended. low freqs. have the other 15s carry the rest, and the 10s or 12s cabs push the high mids and highs. take your time during sound check. and keep an eye on your crew. they are usually tired and in a rush. your equipment is your life line...

First the good: Metal pole mount and sounds okay. Now the bad: Cheap Chinese pressed wood- the nice pole mount was loose right out of the box, screws were all stripped out of the wood. Black felt like covering (not real carpet)-won't last if you're a gigging musician or DJ. My other one (yes, I bought two) had a broken 1/4"jack, right out of the box, also. I sent them back. Spend your money on a better, more expensive subwoofer than the Nady PSW15. It would possibly be okay in a fixed location where you don't have to move it.

Newer model is improved.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

Bought mine in 9/08. The passive crossover is no longer part of the design. I use mine with an active crossover and they perform very well. No rattles, no failures yet and I have pushed them hard for up to 4 hours at a time.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I took a chance and ordered one. I love it! It looks great (much better than the pics), works perfect and sounds great. Is it as good as Yamaha or JBL? Probably not but the price doesn't compare either. If you're lacking that bottom end punch in you PA this is the ticket. It is much more than I had hoped for. I recommend it highly!

They work hard for me.

By Clayton Watson

from NC

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I have been using these for 3 years of DJing with no problems. Yes there are better quality 15" subs on the market, but for the price, these have done an excellent job for me. One grill screw loosened once, which I easily repaired, tightening it along with a toothpick and some wood glue. The bass is excellent. I drive them hard for up to and over 3 hours at a time, often in hot weather conditions. They have never complained. They do put out good bottom on the dance floor. The later models, like mine, have no built in passive crossover. I use them with an active crossover, and use 10" 2-way mains on poles above these. The sound is LOUD and full. Enjoy.
There are no passive crossovers in these anymore. Passive crossovers are for home stereos, not PA equipment.
Could be better, but I haven't had any problems that I could not easily fix.
Hard to beat.

Shake and Roll... but Rattle?

By READ*THIS*REVIEW

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I bought 2 of these Nady Subs after trusting some of the reviews on here. That was my first mistake. I bought them for DJing and Live support, and the first time I had them out, they rattled. The seams in the wood were not done right, so I sent them back. I got new ones and the same thing happened. I called this site and asked if fixing it myself would void the warrantee. They said yes. Don't waste your time with Nady subs. Save the money and get something quality.

good sound bad parts

By Dissapointed-lCV21

from Rockford, Illinois

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I have a pair of these and was gigging with them. During the second set of the show I smell something burning. Thought it was an amp going bad, but upon examination of my equipment found that the sub crossovers had litterally melted off of the board they were mounted on. I am totally disappointed in the quality of the components inside the subs. I was running them at recommended wattage and definately did not expect to melt anything. Now I have bypassed the passive crossover and went to an active crossover. We'll see haven't gigged that way yet.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I have had a set of these for about 3 years. I do karaoke and dj'ing. Mostly dance music with a lot of low end. In this time I have gone through 3 Behringer 18's but have not had a single problem with these. Great low end that doesn't need a lot of power. I haven't used the crossover, I run an active crossover and would recommend that you use 1 for every PA. You really can't beat these for the price!

Modify the Nady

By Jim Lax

from Roanoke, VA

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

Both of mine arrived with the copper coil of the low pass filter dangling from a broken wire. Remove all that,run the wire directly to the speaker, and use an active crossover. While you're at it, glue in a solid plywood ring inside the front and use longer screws to reattach the speaker. Sounds wonderful with my little Yamaha Club Series SM 10s on top. BiAmp!

added bass lows

By LowEnd5string

from Atlanta

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

After searching on a budget, I bought 1 for live performances. Goes great with my 4 x 10's and needed the low end for my 5 stringer. Nice low end. Watch the crossover, cheap. But the speaker and cab are good. Worth the $ for the sound. Not recommended for live sound. Cant handle all the watts. I'm splitting an ampeg and it sounds great.

It's In the Setup

By Coolpayton

from St. Louis, Mo.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I love 'em!! I had trouble before I got them hooked up correctly, once I got my two dialed in. I run them as subs off a Samson 1500 @ 750 watts / channel at 8 ohms, with a dbx 223 crossover, and 2 - 3way Crates P115s, as my mains, so each speaker can only get a max o 375 watts. Once I got the xover dialed in, they are great for the kick drum, floor tom, bass and keyboards at 1.5khz and below, everything else is handled by my Crates, supplementals (2 old Optimus 15s with a Sunn 400 amp & EQ), & 3 monitors (separate amp and EQ). But the bottom end rocks especially at parks and large halls. Works good on breaks for playing CD's & cassettes thru them also.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I own a pair of these. they are a bit boomy, but my 15" tops can supply more of the punch if I need it. As far as the comparison to the Behringer 18" subs, I've never in my life heard a 15" sub that sounded as good as an 18". I use my behringers for live music application and the nady's for DJ jobs. I love them! THANKS NADY!

Whataboutit

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

Uh, Oh! I have owned a pair of these for about a year. I usually use these for djing. Every single time I have used these I have received compliments regarding the low end sound. They provide massive boom! However, at a recent job the cheap parts inside began to literally melt! I am not happy bout dat! I plan to replace the junk with some decent parts and get these babies booming again.

Inefficient

By StvUndef

from Bel Air MD

See all my reviews

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

Do not buy these. A set of B1800x?s will do much better, for about the same price. Hooking 2 of these up to my CE1000 bridged is horrible. Even just clipping the amp, they have no punch. They are too much boom, not musical base, just boom, boom, boom. The cabinets are flimsy, with plastic handles, and corners that break easily. A set of Behringer B1800X Subwoofer will serve much better, for just a bit more. Side by side, a set of PSW15?s driven by a CE1000 vs. a set of B1800X?s driven by a CE1000, the B1800X sound better. The extra for a subwoofer will not kill you, and it will sound much better. They are fine for practice, but if they are your only set of subs for a live show, it will be bad.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

Got these last week. One of the speakers had a bad x over. When you tilted the cab, sounded like a huge pen rolling across a table. So I sent them both back, and went with some 18 subs. The rattle my whole house. Have not gigged with them yet, but I am excited to see what they do in the clubs.

Comments about Nady PSW15 600W 15" Subwoofer:

I purchased a pair of these subs to use for part time dj-ing, and live music application. They sound pretty good when used for dj-ing. As far as live music, if your playing small clubs they sound decent, are easy to maneuver, and are very cost efficient.
