Yamaha YST-SW515

The Yamaha YST- SW515 features Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST II), QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology, Linear port, 10 inches multi-range driver with magnetic shielding, 270 W dynamic power, 20 Hz -160 Hz Frequency Response, Advanced Negative Impedance converter (ANIC) circuits, BASS (Bass Action Selector System) and Auto Standby with Sensitivity Selector (HIGH, LOW and OFF).

Features

The Yamaha YST- SW515 features Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) where the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance which allows high levels of sound pressure and performance. The QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses the down-firing drivers with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate the sound efficiently in four horizontal directions. It is said that these plates negate effects caused by the floor surface and reduces resonance between sound waves reflected from the floor and the unit. This subwoofer has linear port which is able to smooth bass response and minimises extraneous noise. The Yamaha YST- SW515 offers frequency response of 20 Hz to 160 Hz. It has 270 W of Dynamic Power which ensures that all bass sounds are heard. It is also said that even the loudest short bursts with fast attack is heard with total clarity. The 25cm multi-range driver with magnetic shielding eliminates the distortion-causing interference when the speaker is placed near a TV or other monitor. Advanced negative impedance converter (ANIC) circuits system allows optimization of speaker impedance which produces stable performance and higher sound pressure levels. This is said to give a more natural and energetic bass reproduction. The Yamaha YST- SW515 features BASS (Bass Action Selector System) which allows switching between Movie and Music modes.

Additional Features

The Yamaha YST- SW515 features compatible speakers for the Subwoofer which is models NS-525F (Front), NS-C525 (Centre), NS-M525 (Surround) and NS-M525 (Surround Back).
