        Comments about Yamaha YST-SW216 10" 100W Front-Firing Subwoofer:

        I use this with a turntable stereo system to listen to records. My set up is:

        - Technics SL-1200 M3D Turntable
        - Yamaha R-S500 Natural Sound Amp
        - JBL N26II Bookshelf Speakers

        Sound quality is the sub is great! Very musical. I love how is not overpowering and has very adjustable settings. Seems to be very well made.

        My only complaint is that the on/off switch is in the back which is a pain in my opinion, but then again my Dynaudio BM9SII Sub (Expensive) Also has the power switch in the back.

        Other than that, this sub is a great value and sounds fantastic.

        Comments about Yamaha YST-SW216 10" 100W Front-Firing Subwoofer:

        I connected this sub to my Visio sound bar. The combo is the main sound output for my LG 27 inch flat screen TV. The sub works well filling in the low end for an overall decent front two channel system. The on-off control on the sub is down low physically on the back of the sub, but is not that difficult to reach, so it's not an issue for me. It does not have an auto on and off feature, but you can put a switchable power cord in between the sub and the AC outlet if you really need that. The sound is nice and tight enough not to be irritating while on for a long time. It is easy to adjust the sound output to match the system needs. I would recommend this unit and I will likely buy the smaller 8 inch version for another TV flat screen entertainment system. Nice sound and nice price for this type of application.

          This is used in our medium-sized family room with an LED TV, A/V receiver and four other speakers (front and the rear surround). This fills out my 5.1 sound.

          I am not a audiophile; this subwoofer simply fills in the deep bass sounds I was missing, and does it well. I am well-pleased with my purchase from B+H.

                  I ordered this sub after my Polk sub died after 7 years of use. I was looking for a sub that was reasonably priced but with a solid reputation and good ratings. As soon as it was delivered, I hooked it up and watched the Avengers. Great movie for this sub and really has a nice "thump" to it. Only wish list for this sub would be an auto-turn on feature like the Polk (remains in stand by when not using) and I wish the bass was more pronounced at lower volumes. Seems like the best way to really get this thing thumping is when you turn volume up all (or most of) the way. For just over $, I think this is really worth it.

                        I purchased this Yamaha sub to replace a Yamaha I purchased more than 10 years ago. I used that one almost daily as part of my 5.1 surround system. The quality and price of the SW-216 were just what I was looking for. If I can get 10 years of service out of this one I'll be more than happy. Also, whenever I'm in the market for anything electronic, B&H is at the top of my Favorites list. Keep it up!

                          I was little skeptical when I bought this sub woofer. This subs made from real wood and pretty big for the size. Excellent build quality with superb bass performance. I haven't crank up the bass volume to the fullest but the big thunder sound had fill up the entire living room for just a little bit of volume. Definitely better than my old denon subs. The only cons is it doesn't have auto power off feature and limited crossover setting (high & low vs multi level crossover dial).
                          Highly recommended!

                            I have a pare of Samson Resolv64a monitors that I use for movie editing and sound track composition. I realized that I was really missing out on the low end so I was about to buy the matching subwoofer for more than twice the price of this one. But after going through the reviews I decided to try this one out. It is awesome! Prefect for what I wanted. If you don't need more than a hundred watts, go for it!

                              Very nice unit and plenty of power. Perfect unit for the average to high end surround setup. This was for a customer and he was extremely pleased. Will buy another one for the next setup!

                                has all the inputs I need to use in a variety of applications. Really fills in the deep base lacking otherwise.

                                  This is a great subwoofer! Easy to set up and adjust to your liking as well. It is rather large for my small room, but worth the space.

                                    This sub has some serious wallop. At moderate volumes its shakin the house! Seperate volume control gives you greater control over the mix.
