Rated 5 out of 5áby Steveproto Wow - What a difference
First I must say that I didn't listen to any Subs before I brought this one and so my review isn't based on this model in comparison with anything else, its just my ears hearing the difference between my existing setup (Yamah Amp, B&W fronts and Cambridge Audio centre) and the addition of he Yamaha YSTFSW050 (what a great name!)
However, Im a musician, a caring amateur sound engineer and a lover of films with exploding helicopters so I have a sense of what things could and shoud sound like.
The size of the Yamaha rebasser (much better name I think) means it fits under our coffee table/tv stand and is the same size as my av amp. My amp has that great setup mic so all I had to do was plug it in, turn it half the way up and run the mac/audio setup.
The sub fits perfectly in my setup. Both physically and audio-ly It has presence but doesn't dominate. The sound space is much larger but unless you turn it up to 11 it sits under everything else like a comfy sofa.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bikercambridge Hear what you've been missing all these years
I use studio monitor speakers for general listening. They're specified down to 35Hz but, of course, are designed to be used close to your ears and were never intended to deliver room-filling sound, especially at lower frequencies. As I tend to listen to pipe organ music, a good room-filling bass is really needed when the reeds on the pedal board are opened up. So I added one of these Yamaha subwoofers. I must admit being a bit sceptical because they also are specified down to 35Hz, the same as my main speakers, so wasn't sure if I'd get much advantage. Imagine my surprise! Quite honestly I'm hearing an extra octave, or more, at lower frequencies; and those notes from the organ reeds are growling their way into the entire room. I'm really hearing things I've not heard before from my CD collection. The floor of my living room is concrete but I can still feel it vibrate! I really couldn't be more pleased with the way this remarkably cheap unit has transformed my listening.

Rated 5 out of 5áby subwoof Excellent low frequency response. Works well with my Yamaha amp
I have had my living room wired for this sub woofer for some time and at last have got round to using it. Excellent results with a thumping bass which matches well with my surround sound set up. Perfect for cinema quality sound when watching films such as The Matrix.
Easy to set up. Excellent value and service again from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Fursty Great value for decent base
I brought this unit as it was one of the cheaper units and compact. It has plenty of power and the base is really good, for films and music. It will take up half a shelve space on most TV cabinets. Would recommend it.
