I like it!

 

I recently moved to a new home and the system lacked a subwoofer. I ordered this one and I have been very satisfied. Not earth shaking Bass but nice complement to my system.

Excellent Value

 

I have added this subwoofer to a pair of bookshelf B&W 685 speakers, powered by a Harmon Kardon HK3490 stereo amplifier, with excellent results. I set it up with 2 line inputs and adjusted as recommended in the manual. The sensitivity switch on the...

Yamaha YST-SW215 Subwoofer Speaker

 

It is a very great sounding sub for the money. Having just lost my Mordaunt Short due to age, I was told about this particular sub and how good it sounds for the price. After buyimg it It is determined that it is money well spent.

Can't beat it for the price

 

I was searching for the least expensive sub I could find that promised decent sound. I didn't want to rattle the windows since I usually use the home theater system after the kiddies are in bed, so I didn't need much. I was getting more bass from my...

A lot of bang for the buck!

 

I purchased this subwoofer last week and I don't know how I lived without it! The sound from my dvd's and cd's have been dramatically improved. I have it hooked up to my Kenwood VR-806 receiver(see review) and my basement has never sounded better. The...

VERY INEXPENSIVE. Distortion free. Automatic shutoff

Great Sub for the price

 

Like most things in life you get what you pay for. But in the $150 range this is the most potent 8" sub you can find. It has phase settings, cross over settings and standby settings.

Good distinct non-booming base. Great Value

The movie/music button that doesn't seem to do much

Product Specifications

The YST-SW215PN is designed to acoustically match the speakers in the Piano Finish 125 Series. The YST-SW215PN includes Advanced Yamaha Active Servo technology (Advanced YST). Advanced Yamaha Active Servo technology (Advanced YST) is a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance. QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses down-firing drivers with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate the sound efficiently in four horizontal directions. The reflective plates negate any effects caused by the floor surface and reduce resonance between sound waves reflected from the floor and the unit.
