Consumer review (



The instructions say the LED goes red when speaker is "off" in automatic on mode. The light just goes out, but does automatically come on when a signal demands the subwoofer.

Speaker looked new and worked

I wonder what refurbish really means, unit operates slightly different than specified by the instructions

Yeah, uh.....


I wouldn't consider myself and "audiophile" but I do like good sound. That being said, I like to turn it up. I wanted to replace a 4" Sharper Image subwoofer that I got like 15 years ago for $20 (refurbished). It has been a good sub, rattles stuff,...

Well, if you don't have a subwoofer, and your book shelf speakers have a woofer smaller than 4" and you don't want loud, room shaking bass, and you just need some filler bass, and you live in an apartment above an older person who doesn't want to hear...

VERY VERY light weight. Good if you have a bad back. Bad if you want a powerful sound. Amp also sticks out the back so make sure you have clearance for air to cool it, if it ever gets hot. All controls are on the back. So to make any adjustments, you...

This thing REALLY thumps!


I have been an electronics technician since 1974 and this was the only way I could connect the Sony Subwoofer to my Panasonic 5.1 surround sound amplifier which had a much smaller and less powerful subwoofer. The way I have it connected, the bass from...

This Sony subwoofer really sounds GREAT ; My surround system didn't have an RCA output for a subwoofer, so I spliced the original subwoofer cable to the input of the amp to one of the left speaker inputs, then I ran my original subwoofer to the left...

None so far, just got it today and hooked it up

Great value and service


Bought this from Newegg as a refurbished unit for 55.00, to add to my new Vizio 2.0 Sound Stand that I bought from WM for 98.00 (was 148.00). The Sound Stand has a sub out RCA jack that I was curious to try out without spending a lot of money. The...

Free shipping within 30 hours of placing order ; Best price ANYWHERE ; Good quality ; Attractive casing

Can't find any cons so far

just got one


Just bought one for 98 bucks in wm

Awesome bang for the buck ; Has a front speaker pass through - if you don't have a sub out on the amp

Won't turn off with the rest of the stereo system (And the power button is on the bottom in the back of it) ; You want to put this thing under a table, looks good from front but has an ugly heatsink and amp on the back

Sony SA-W2500 subwoofer


For small/medium spaces and ganging up - it's just hard to beat. When I get some more $$, I'll proly get another ;) NOTE: It does NOT seem to cut off the regular speakers' frequency response (high pass) when you use the speaker level inputs vs. the...

Sounds very good as fill; silent off/on (can't hear relay unless you're really close); pleasantly tweakable integration with other components; even fits in a lower kitchen cabinet (neat experiment for doing dishes...hehe.)

For more critical listening, needs a tad of pillow stuffing and an internal brace (even a piece of broom handle works and worth the trouble); for organ contrabass, you only get a hint of the lowest register, but that's ok with me

Not worth it


Do your homework before buying a subwoofer! Don't get dooped into something you don't like otherwise you'll get upgrade-itis.

It's pretty loud sometimes, and in exactly the right conditions. Mine hasn't died yet. It has lasted over 4 years

For the price, this is one of the worst subwoofers you can get. For $130 you can get a Dayton Audio Sub-1200 which can hit down to 25Hz. Can you believe that this Sony sub can only get down to 35Hz?? (I've tested it) And it's super quiet and distorted...

very good choice


i would have prefered to have 20-150HZ but this is close enough,the rest were 40-200HZ which means your going to miss the low end freq.100 watts can't beat the price another good deal...
