Summary: This sub rocks as much as snowboarding! You can crank this up and party like it's 1999! It came totally packaged in an awesome way...and the box was super quality card board...I fashioned a sick hat from the box and still get a ton of compliments on it...best hat EVAR. The sub is wicked good too...get you some! It's fairly heavy so in an emergency, you can use it as a self defense weapon by swinging it by the power cord and and unleashing mass carnage on bad guys.
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.
