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...

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

nice sub!


excellent performance! this sub delivers a very solid bass even at high volumes, dont let it's small size full you with 120w of output power at about $100.00 is a great investment for your home theatre system.

great price, powerful bass, many adjusting features

dont have any negative points on this YAMAHA subwoofer

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.
