  • Excerpt: Bought to supplement my older 5.1 surround sound system in bedroom and found to be quite adequate for a smaller room with decent sound quality. Cost for its performance is good and would recommend for anyone wanting to add a little punch to a smaller system for little cost.<br />EQUIPMENT<br />Reciever: Pioneer VSX-D412 5.1, 100 watts/channel<br />Blu-Ray : Sony BDP-S550<br />Center: RCA Pro-CS550<br />Fronts: Pioneer S-HF21-LR<br />Rears: Infinity SL10<br />Subwoofer:...

So far, so good

  • 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've had mine for five years. It's been used a couple of hours a day, on average. No complaints. A decent sub woofer at a reasonable price. It's been a great investment.

Sounds great

  • 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: Easy to install. I plugged it into my cable box so that the subwoofer shuts off when you turn off the music.

Great sub for the price and 2 YEAR WARRANTY!

  • 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.

Great subwoofer for the price.

  • Excerpt: Overall, I like the unit. Used for home entertainment, primarily movies. Good bass output. It doesn't turn off automatically when receiver powers down (no signal sensing circuit). I'm still tuning the unit for when the bass kicks in. Sometimes when someone like a newscaster is talking, the bass kicks in intermittenly.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Good Power Output
  • Cons: Adjusting Activation, No Signal Sensing Circuit
