    Shakes the entire family room! (If you want it to)


    Ok, so when I started shopping around for a sub, I realized that I had to find one that I could hook up actual speaker wires to. This is because I have an older Harmon Kardon receiver with no surround sound outputs. I couldn't believe that I found this for just over $100! After reading ALL of the reviews I bought it on line immediately. It arrived in 3 days at my front door. It took about 15 minutes to hook it up. I have a 300 watt HK receiver & 2 Klipsh bookshelf speakers, and now with this sub, it is the perfect system. I can control the bottom end on the sub with the volume control & dial it in perfectly! I am a drummer & bottom end is VERY important to me, & this sub delivers. I would highly reccomend this to anyone who wants to add a good thump to their system...........

    Buy something better if you can afford it.


    I bought this sub because I was trying to save some cash and I was already going over my budget with my new 46" LCD and other home theater components. I have known Yamaha to be a good brand in the past, so I figured I would give it a try......but you get what you pay for. This sub really struggles with the lower, deeper bass, which is really what I was wanting for my home theater. At higher volumes it quickly distorts. If the volume is kept lower and you want a bit more full sound to support your Highs and mids at a very low cost, then try this. If you can spring the extra cash for something better do it. Luckily for me the Klipsch 10" went on sell the next day, and I upgraded to that for only a $100 more. I am soooo much happier, and so is my wife and she usually could care less about audio. I should have expected this performance for the price, but I was hopeful.

    Ok sub LOW price


    i got this sub with a pioneer VSX-517 home theatre receiver and i really like how this sub sounds. it dosent have very low bass but for $125 you cant go wrong. This works well as a home theatre sub but when you listen to music that has a lot of bass or run bass testers or sub testers it dosent do very well. a friend of mine has a velodyne subwoofer and when i compared this sub to his it wasnt as good sounding down low. I was first disapointed with the sub when i listened to it in the store but then realized that people would beat up the subs in the store by turning them up super loud. Even after hearing it in the store i still bought it. After it was hooked up it sounded so much better than in the store. This isnt the greatest subwoofer but for the money you cant go wrong. Overall pretty good sub if you dont feel like spending $2000 on a home theatre.

    Huge Disappointment!


    I have a yamaha surround system in my room. I bought it 4 years ago. I have a 6inch 60 watt sub that sounds awesome. Sounds like a 100 watt sub and is rich with clean clear bass. I thought that yamaha was one of the best because of the subs i have heard from them. But my 6inch sub just didn't output enough power at high volumes even though it sounded great at lower volumes. So when i saw this huge sub online from yamaha i thought to myself that it would be rich and deep in bass to make up for it's low power consumption. Boy was i wrong. This subwoofer sounds like crawp and sounds more forceful than rich. It probably could have been fixed with a frequency knob but that wasn't there either. Long story short i returned this sub the very next day because i need quality not just power. Yes it has some power but just doesn't sound good.

    great quality


    Was alittle hesitant with this product after reading both good and not so good reviews. However the good outweighed the not so good and I decided to give it a try. Well let me tell you, I'm glad I did. The power and incredible sound that came out of this sub just blew me away. I can't describe the difference it made in my system . Please don't waste your money on those very expensive subs that will only bring out just a minor difference in sound and quality. I really love this item and highly recomend this to anyone who wants to put a real kick in there home theater sound. I quaruntee you will not be dissapointed.

    Good subwoofer the price

    First of all, please note that the subwoofer is being used for a home stereo system and not at all for an entertainment surround sound. The subwoofer works good especially considering the price. It is being used in a small room but in conjunction with higher end audio equipment and speakers. The previous subwoofer I had was much more powerful and costly but had to be replaced. Seeing as the room the system resides in now is smaller, I opted to find a more cost effective subwoofer. The only complaint I have is that the subwoofer itself did not work when hooked up using the speaker wire inputs. I had to use a separate RCA bypass out on the pre-amp and into the RCA input on the subwoofer.

    Skeptical purchase


    After reading the reviews for this item, I must say I was very skeptical about this purchase, but I took a chance and took advantage of the 30 day return policy of Best Buy. After getting this subwoofer home, and properly setting it up, I was VERY surprised. This is not a bad little sub. It is not a Klipsch unit by any means, but the way I figure it, if you are looking for a a sub in this price range then you do not expect the best quality. This is a nice addition to my Bose 201 bookshelf speakers, the bass can become muddy if you turn the volume on the sub to high, set the sub at mid level, and it is fine.

    Great addition!


    I bought this sub to go along with my Yamaha sound bar I had recently purchased. I am pleased to far! This product has a nice solid build and it was built to last for sure. Like others have said having the volume around 3 or 4 seems to be best anything higher than that is a little too much. My only gripe is that this did not come with the needed RCA cable to attach. I picked one up off Amazon and had to wait an additional 2 days to set this baby up. Having said that, my product arrived to BB a week earlier than anticipated. Thanks!
