Summary: I bought this subwoofer for our main living area. I have a big Onkyo 300W in our media room but needed something less "over the top" to complement some basic 6.5" ceiling speakers. This Sony capably does the job and puts out plenty of low end to fill out the sound spectrum. For less than $100 it really puts out a great amount of sound.
Summary: I have this little sub matched up with a sound bar and it does the trick for sure. I have it up about half way, more than that and it overpowers the rest of the music and movies. Great price and very decent sound for entry level sub.
Summary: I would have rated 5 stars if it had automatic on / off. I had to buy a power strip with auto on / off. Not a problem if your amp has switched power output, but mine didn't. The unit sounds great and I am happy with performance.
Summary: The Yamaha 8" does a nice job in hitting really good lows & puts out good bass (great for movies), but it has none of the bells & whistles of others in the price range - just an on/off, volume and one RCA jack (for a pre-amp subwoofer line). Even though this Yamaha lacks standby circuitry, it puts out no discernible heat when not getting a signal. I think Yamaha kept this sub dirt simple, so they could concentrate on the sound reproduction for a low price.
Summary: Installed new electronics in my RV,removed an old Bose system and replaced it with a Denon receiver and used the Yamaha sub.Sound quality is very good for a small driver,only thing is the unit does not turn on,when it gets a signal,has to be manual turned on
Summary: I purchased this subwoofer as a complement to my smaller stereo system in my bedroom. Since purchasing a streaming media DVD player for my bedroom TV, I connected my TV to my stereo for better sound and now wanted more bass/depth. This subwoofer delivers that very well for me. It really is well suited for a small to medium sized room.
Sounds good for home office setting, but disappointed in no auto-off feature

Summary: I bought this for a fairly large room that's both my home office and workout area. Puts out plenty of base for my daily listening but I can't say I'm taxing the subwoofer. I tend to play it at low levels. However, I've turned it up a time or two and haven't been disappointed. My only disappointment has been in the lack of an auto-off feature, which I have with my other subwoofers in the home.
