Summary: I purchased this specifically for the smaller foot print that I have set for a 2nd sub-woofer. I wanted to add a secondary subwoofer to make my home theater a ture 7.2 setup. This product fit the bill and I am very happy with my purchase. Auto off would have been a nice benefit, but the pros out weigh the cons. I certainly would recommend this to anyone who does not require the wall shaking bass. Again, five stars based on my needs and performance.
Pros: Easy to Setup and Use, Excellent For Limit Space, Excellent sound, Nice size, Works as advertised
Summary: Slim and attractive design, very good sound quality. You can not hear it booming in the corner. Its like sound goes from speakers. I would give it 5 stars if it had sound sensing power off.I always buy Yamaha for all my musical/sound needs and never was disappointed.
Summary: Clean crisp yet unobtrusive bass that fills the void! You don't realize what you have been missing until you hook this stylishly designed subwoofer to your components and sit back to enjoy the experience!
Summary: I really like this sub. I have a very limited design options for layout of my speakers. This was one of the few subs that would fit. There may be better sounding subs out there but it is just fine for me.
Summary: I needed to replace a Bose sub with something that would fit in the same space under a seat in our Viking Sports Fish. This Yamaha sub fit perfectly, and sounds great as well. I'm using a Marantz NR1603 to power it, and the little Bose cube speakers that i re-used from the original Bose system i replaced. If you buy this sub, you shouldn't be disappointed. The Marantz NR 1603 is also very good.
Summary: My beautiful 50 year old Magnavox fruit wood console went kaput. For me, fixing it is not an option. However, I decided to use the Magnavox as external speakers. I hooked up an external amp and it worked out very well, but I was unable to get really great base sound. I figured out the problem: The evolution of speakers is that in the 40's, one big speaker in your radio was great. Then along came stereo and everyone needed at least two speakers.
