              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!

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

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