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.
Summary: This sub sounds incredible for music.I do not have it setup for home theater, so I cannot comment in that regard. Sturdy construction and great range. I paired this with Audioengine AP4N's all powered by a Qinpu A-6000 MKII. I highly recommend these components together for a smaller bookshelf setup; I have this system in my home office.
Summary: I am not an audiophile but a great movie enthusiast and like to get the complete entertainment while watching movies. I assembled an average home theater with klipsch book shelves, bose center and back speakers and managed for a while without a subwoofer. I used a pioneer receiver. After a year I added this yamaha SW and the whole experience is at a new level. The rumble it adds to a medium sized room is amazing. The size is one excellent plus for this subwoofer.
