Summary: Purchased to replace a failed SW in an analog 5.1 system. Cost effective replacement item. The adjustable HF rolloff is a nice touch. The power save feature has a short lag in firing the unit back up after signal feed starts. I recommend this.
Pros: Adjustable Hf Rolloff, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I bought this with the SS-F7000 mains and am very happy with the combination. The amp is no longer being produced but is only a year out of production. STR-DH 520. Nearly a 1000 watt am over 7.1 channels. This sub paired with the mains above is perfect.
Summary: Plenty of depth and volume. Sounds great for videos,okay for music. Auto on/off function is crappy. I have a pair of polk subwoofers with this function that works much better. Do not recommend using that function with this sony. Therefore four stars instead of five. Just leave it in the on position. I recommend this sony subwoofer for casual music listening and for an inexpensive home theater.
Summary: first of all i would like to thank sony for providing people with limited money to purchase a surprisingly great subwoofer. i have a sony str-de945 receiver, sony ss-f7000 for mains and sony sa-w2500. this system sounds great! i really think sony hit the mark with this one. in the past sony has made some trash dont get me wrong but here latelly they have surprised me. i would reccomend this sub to anyone.
Summary: A great sub, I added this to a "simulated surround-sound" soundbar (Yamaha) with a Samsung flat screen, in a large family room, and while its not perfect surround sound, it does the job (and very neat), and the auto on and off feature is very handy. Good thumping bass. Highly recommended in this price range, unless you're a total audiophile.
