Summary: I got to looking at my soundbar and noticed an output for a subwoofer. The soundbar is made by ilive. And it is a nice addition by attaching to my Vizio TV by optical jack. I ordered the Yamah YST-SW012 8" subwoofer, and it adds so much life and depth to the sound that I wished I'd a hunted one of...
Summary: I was shopping to upgrade my home theater audio system from a 8 year old all-in-one box system that had a passive sub. My main criteria were a budget below $500, reputable brand with state-of-the-market specs, and good ratings. I opted for a Yamaha RX-V373 receiver and this sub.
Summary: This is only the second subwoofer I've owned. The first was a non-powered unit with a 12" downward-firing driver. It was disappointing to say the least, maybe because I was trying to push it with a 40 watt per channel amp.
Summary: Small size, works great with my Yamaha sound bar. The family was quite impressed, including my wife who rolled her eyes when I talked about getting this for about 1 year. The sound from our entertainment system took leaps and bounds forward in depth with the added subwoofer. Great Yamaha product.
Summary: I had a system that was sort of rigged together with some leftover speakers from a Samsung DVD system. I purchased the Denon 7.2 system. When I transferred all the wires to the Denon, I noticed that the Subwoofer was permanently attached to the Samsung DVD Player.
Summary: I used to be into stereos and all when younger, but the subwoofer was usually integrated into the one or two speakers. Now I have finally discovered surround sound for my new big TV, and decided I needed more low end.
Summary: I've had a stereo surround sound system with no subwoofer for years. My small, cape cod style living room has plaster walls and hardwood floors, so I knew I didn't need anything large. I just wanted to add a little bass without breaking the bank. This speaker is GREAT.
Summary: I use this sub with a pair of psb Alpha powered speakers which have a tap for a subwoofer. I liked the small speakers but they were definitely lacking in bass. I don't need huge thumping bass, so I skipped the 12-inch version of this speaker.
