The Yamaha YSTF-SW050 is not like other subwoofers.

With its specially designed, low profile, cabinet, the YSTFSW050 has been designed to fit where other subs won't go. Mount it on a rack, alongside a mini system or under furniture, the YST-FSW050 will slide in with ease.

Using a down-firing woofer and Yamaha's award-winning YST active technology, the flat Yamaha subwoofer delivers a surprisingly powerful bass response. With its front-mounted Linear Port, the YST-FSW050 produces its bass smoothly and progressively, thus minimising distortion.

Perfect for use with a Soundbar, mini hi-fi system, or anywhere else where space is at a premium, the Yamaha YST-FSW050 is that very rare thing; a discreet subwoofer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whooooa - does it for the TV! I have had a Yamaha YAS101 soundbar for a while and thinking we might watch a few more home movies if we got a real good sound system I thought a sub woofer might do the trick. So enter my new Sub Woofer. Point 1 - the cables are hidden right under the bottom most polystyrene bit of packaging. You need both sets of cables to connect the sub woofer to the soundbar. Point 2 - to get it to work - Switch off the Soundbar - THEN - press power and volume minus on the soundbar together then release the volume minus button - it then puts sound through the sub woofer. SOUND - excellent - deep - mess around with the subwoofer / soundbar balance - tend towards less subwoofer. You will be well impressed 21 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by YST-fsw050 Excellent product in use with Yamaha sound bar easy to install fitted where i wanted so thumbs up 03 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bass lovers delight! I bought this subwoofer with my new surround amp as an upgrade to my old sub. Its still bedding in but already on both music and movies, I have noticed the bass is crisper and sharper when it needs to be but equally unobtrusive when called for.. How does it know ? with music, the timing is spot on and never lags behind or overpowers. The deep bass of explosions and sound effects on movies is fully enhanced but without distortion. The volume control is a boon as its easy to turn up or down without having to fiddle with receiver settings but so far I haven't had to touch it. I have stood it sideways for space and it looks great along side the rack. very impressed and nothing to criticise. 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A complement to my rx-375 receiver Bought this with an RXV-375 receiver and bose speakers for a home theatre setup works great does what it says on the tin and does it well! Is descret and easy to setup. 27 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price, sound and build! Originally wanted the 150w version which was sold out but this is more than enough for a medium sized room. Along with the amplifier and 4 speakers its perfect, you don't really need, and it shouldn't be turned right up anyway but its only ever turned up to about 1/3 of the way (music dependent). Really good quality build, its not light but no means. Connects via one phono and is provided with a long single phono. Nicely sized too to fit under a bed. 21 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value product As an entry-level sub-woofer, this unit performs very well. 19 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Compact Subwoofer This subwoofer produces a good bass and matches very well with the Yamaha soundbar. It is stylish and sits on a shelf under the TV easily. Excellent value for money. 15 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does what it says on the tin The sub plugs straight into a receiver, switch it on and turn it up as loud as you want the bass end to be! I need to investigate whether this is absolute or relative to the volume on the receiver - but seems nicely balanced. Adds a good amount of bottom end to sounds and makes things feel a little more cinema-esque. Recommended as an additional speaker for a 2-way or 5-way system 11 January 2014
