Product Details

Yamaha YST-SW215PN Piano Black 8" Powered Subwoofer, Model YSTSW215PN

Features:

  • Advanced Active Servo Technology
    Yamaha's Advanced Active Servo Technology is a complementary amplifier/speaker system utilizing negative impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass
  • 8" Driver And 120 Watt Amplifier
    High amplifier power assures enough power to deliver shattering movie theater-like bass effects, and the down firing 8-inch cone driver translates the power into clear bass sound. The YST-SW215 has a frequency range of 30 to 200 Hz.
  • Bass Selector
    Yamaha's BASS (Bass Action Selector Switch) tailors the sub's output for video or music at the touch of a switch
  • Yamaha QD-Bass Technology
    A Yamaha technology that uses a down firing driver to radiate the bass output more efficiently. Sound is radiated in all directions for greater impact
  • Magnetic Shielding
    The subwoofer is magnetically shielded so it can be placed near a TV monitor or receiver without fear that it will degrade the picture
  • Continuously Variable High-Cut Filter
    The user adjustable continuously variable high-cut filter sets the highest frequency the subwoofer will deliver. It can be set anywhere from 50 to 150 Hz. For instance, if the filter is set at 75 Hz, only frequencies 75 Hz or below will be delivered by the subwoofer. This allows the sub's output to be matched to the other speakers in the system and the room's acoustics for a seamless presentation
  • Volume Control
    The volume control permits the perfect matching of the sub's output to the overall volume of the system
  • Signal Sensing On/Off
    For convenience, the YST-SW215 has a signal sensing circuit.When the subwoofer detects an audio signal, it turns its power on. When it senses no signal for several minutes, it shuts itself off
  • Phase Normal/Reverse Switch
    Makes it easy to phase the subwoofer with the other speakers in your system
  • Dual Inputs
    Two sets of inputs allow the versatile subwoofer to accept either line level or speaker level input signals
  • Heavy-Duty Speaker Terminals
    Yamaha's three-way speaker terminals accept banana plug and a variety of other connectors, as well as speaker wire
  • Rigid Cabinet Construction
    The YST-SW215's cabinet is constructed of thick MDF to increase rigidity and reduce vibration and resonance

      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.

        Comments about Yamaha Piano Black 8" Powered Subwoofer:

        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 Auto On feature was useful. This subwoofer provides an excellent musical extension to the sound. The secret to a seamless sound is not to overdrive the subwoofer (10-11 o'clock position on the volume control). I was particularly interested in improving the sound from my collection of SACDs - I was not disappointed.
