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 4.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Compact but with acceptable performance Also can stand it on its side to save even more space. use it only on a third of its full setting otherwise bass will dominate everything 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Small but seriously powerful Having invested in 5 Cambridge speakers for a home cinema system (1x Aero 2, 1x Minx MIN21 set and a Cambridge S50 centre speaker) I found the .1 bit was slighlty lacking. New speakers are notorious for requiring "run-in" or "burn-in" and perhaps I was being a tad impatient but felt the bass lacking, with the emphasis on slightly. So the Yamaha YSTF sub was a brilliant accompaniment to the rest of the system, chosen mainly due to it's compact size. It delivered that last missing bit especially to the rear of my lounge #admittedly an odd place to put a sub# but with the Aero 2's and S50 centre speaker producing massive bass at the front whilst the Minx 21's produce crisp rear surround sound, the Yamaha subwoofer adds a perfect balancing touch to the all round experience. Highly recommended quality product. 12 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just what I needed Due to receiver upgrade I had to dump my old passive sub base. Read the reviews and decided to go for the Yamaha Ystfsw050. It's a good tidy unit and I'm well pleased with the quality of the sound. 31 July 2014
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 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
