Summary: Cheapest subwoofer from Yahama I know, provides good quality and is simple to use. Covers big range of low frequencies. It's a little bit big in size, so I keep it on the floor. I bought this same subwoofer again after relocation.
Excerpt: I connected this sub to my Visio sound bar. The combo is the main sound output for my LG 27 inch flat screen TV. The sub works well filling in the low end for an overall decent front two channel system. The on-off control on the sub is down low physically on the back of the sub, but is not that difficult to reach, so it's not an issue for me.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: This is used in our medium-sized family room with an LED TV, A/V receiver and four other speakers (front and the rear surround). This fills out my 5.1 sound. I am not a audiophile; this subwoofer simply fills in the deep bass sounds I was missing, and does it well. I am well-pleased with my purchase from B+H.

Summary: I thought long and hard before I made my decision to buy this subwoofer. I narrowed it down between the Polk PSW10, the Yamaha SW50BL2, Yamaha SW012 8". I really wanted the Polk but it was just too big and bulky for my set up. The SW50BL2 was more like a dedicated surround sound speaker from what I read. So my final choices were the Yamaha SW216 and the SW012. After the price of the SW216 went down from $129 to $116 the choice became even harder.
Excerpt: Great boom for the buck! Purchased to go with my new Yamaha RX-V475BL AV receiver and bookshelf speakers (Klipsch). Puts out a great sound to fill in the gaps below 100 Hz. Volume control gives you as little or as much bass as you want.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
