Great Value at the price, good bass


Great product, excellent addition to any sound system, even a micro-stereo system with.

This subwoofer has excellent bass and is surprisingly deep for its size. I love the fact that i can plug additional speakers into it

It would be nice if it had a standard headphone jack line in, in addition to the RCA input and speaker lead inputs

Sony SAW2500 Subwoofer


This subwoofer has been a great addition to my system adding some needed depth and punch to lower frequencies. I never knew what I was missing when a plane would fly over or some lower strings would start to play in the background. I especially like...

Bang for the buck

Cabinet seems cheap

If anyone reading this can help me with the auto-on/off feature, please reply. This unit really sounds good and deep. I was using a passive sub before so this is way different. I would buy this again. The wife is constantly asking m eot turn it down.

Nice thump for theater-like movie watching in your home

This could be my fault, but when I switch on the auto power, once it turns itself off it will not come back on once I turn on my receiver

Hunk of Junk


Just don't buy it. It's a piece of crap. I'm taking mine back and exchanging it for a real subwoofer.

It's pretty

Only had it for 3 days before it started going out completely. Press the power button and all I got was a 'pop' of sound then nothing

I purchased this unit as a needed replacement for a $300 JBL subwoofer that I had for about 10 years that finally blew a fuse. I found this new Sony SA-W2500 unit to be of at least equal quality at less than one-third the price I paid for the earlier...

Sony SAW2500 Subwoofer


This is a great sub-woofer for the price! The technical specs and features are better than many subwoofers twice the price. Although it's a little "boomie" the ability to set the frequency higher or lower helps. 85 bucks at Circuit City was a steal!...

Features for Price

Sony SAW2500 Subwoofer


I needed a subwoofer for my onkyo receiver I bought after my panasonic home theater in a box unit stopped working. The panasonic subwoofer had a cable designed just for the unit so I needed a new subwoofer that would fit the standard rca jack on the...

It produces good bass at a very affordable price

The black color does not really go with the other silver speakers in my system

Sony SAW2500 Subwoofer


Disclaimer: I am not an audiophile, but I do understand that subwoofers are more to be felt than heard, and in that regard, I don\\\'t see much wrong with this Sony. I suppose if you have a 50-foot long viewing room, it may be underpowered, but it\\\'s...

More than enough bass for most rooms

No glaring deficiencies

For about $70 this is a great subwoofer. Bass sounds great! Sony is a quality manufacturer and 150 watts is pleanty for most people. The subwoofer comes with a 6ft audio cable.

Provides an exellent bass boost
