Excerpt: I purchased this subwoofer to complete a home cinema system that I had pieced together over time. It fits in perfectly and complements the Mission speakers I otherwise have. The Missions have great bass reproduction for their size (for a little over 4 inches' worth of a woofer) and never really felt I would need to expand the bass. But I saw the Yamaha and figured I'd give it a try. It definitely rounds up the spectrum nicely.
Excerpt: I have this unit paired with PSB image B4 subcompact speakers and with the volume set, you'd think I was running a set of floor speakers. I wish the sub had feet to remove the vibrations from the floor, and a standby switch, but overall I am very satisfied with the setup.
but I do like decent sound for my music and movies

Summary: I'm not an audio addict, but I do like decent sound for my music and movies. It works well for kicking out the rumbles and booms in a movie to make it that extra bit more enjoyable. It also filled out the lower end on my vintage sansui speakers for music. It also didn't break the bank.
Summary: My old Jbl subwoofer stopped working after 10 years. I got this one (first Yamaha stuff I have bought) and could not be happier. What a difference. Excellent bass, much better than the old one and very clear. A great addition to any home theater system. I use this with music and movies. One thing a not like much is it comes with rubber sticker that you have to attach to the bottom.
Excerpt: I use this with a turntable stereo system to listen to records. My set up is: - Technics SL-1200 M3D Turntable - Yamaha R-S500 Natural Sound Amp - JBL N26II Bookshelf Speakers Sound quality is the sub is great! Very musical. I love how is not overpowering and has very adjustable settings. Seems to be very well made.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
