Summary: If you are looking for a head banging noise maker that makes your ears bleed then this unit is not for you. But, if you looking for a nice small compact unit that will merely enhance your music and movie viewing then this unit is for you.
Summary: I purchased this subwoofer back in 2008, and it is still going strong now in 2012. The reason I purchased it was to complement the Yamaha soundbar I hung on my wall. The speaker turns on and off along with the soundbar, so I don't need to manually turn it on or off every time I want some base.
Summary: There are better subs but none better in this price range. I use the FSW100 with the Yamaha YSP-1100 and it provides just enough bass. It will not provide the bone crushing bass needed for hard core rap fans or for the head banger types. Then again, that's not my usage.
Summary: Don't expect this subwoofer to absolutely blow anything away, but that's because that's not what it's designed for. I use it with my YSP800 unit, and it works just fine. Not too loud, but the base is deep enough to be sufficient for my tiny combines of a living room.
Summary: I bought this after reading the specs and features from the Yamaha website. I wanted a slimline sub to add to a small space and one that has the "standby" feature. But I got a surprise after unpacking it when I THEN found out that the "standby" feature ONLY works when hooked up with a YAMAHA...
Summary: The Yamaha FSW100 is a compact woofer that delivers excellent quality. Our family room is about 18x18. The woofer is not overpowering and is not oversized. It defintely completes our home theater system. The supplier was also great. Delivery was timely and communication was perfect.
Summary: The Subwoofer is great, did have a vibration tick when cranked up. I tightened a couple of screws on back plate and it was gone. That was the only bad news. Obviously not that bad, This subwoofer along with the 800 soundbar from Yamaha make an excellent pair without all the wires needed for other...
Summary: I cannot imagine anyone not being 100% pleased with this subwoofer. It looks good, it's compact and it provides all the base you need to enjoy a movie or show in your bedroom or studio. It will not take the place of a 10" or bigger subwoofer. I purchased it with the Yamaha YSP1100 speaker.
