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 4.7 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality for money Easy to set up. Made a major difference to music from the Mac through an Xtreme sound bar which is ok but lacks depth. If your using this make of sound bar make sure to remember that it takes a normal jack & the subwoofer jack needs a converter. Richer Sounds guys as good as ever. 29 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy Needed a new sub woofer and thanks to the great staff at Lichfield Richer Sounds got this great bargin. May not be top of the range but is perfect for my home cinema system. 18 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boom this looks the part and sounds the part. I bought this for a home cinema rather than a stereo so realist base was required and this produces it. I takes up the height of two standard av pieces such as dvd players but is small enough to fit under my tv in a tiny cabinet (which doesnt rattle as a result) One thing not mentioned anywhere here as far as I can see is the auto on function! I'm using this with the Yamaha Rxv677 and buy connecting it with the supplied cable the amp turns the sub on and off. I almost didnt buy this as i didnt think it supports that functionality. Great stuff 26 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product This is a great piece of kit. Fantastic, rich and warm bass. I am running it with Celestion Impact10 speakers. I hooked it up to my Denon DM39 (also bought at Richer Sounds) and it brings music alive like nothing else...Many thanks to John, Senior Sales Adviser at Richer Sounds in Edinburgh for all of his professional and friendly advice. 19 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good value as a gaming Subwoofer Ever since I enabled the Realtek DTS chip on my motherboard, I have been able to play games in 5.1. This subwoofer is perfect for this purpose and a lot less 'boomy' compared to my other 2 subwoofers connected elsewhere. It is being used in a small room, not sure how it would cope in a large room. 23 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by YAMAHA YSTFSW050 Quality sub woofer perfectly aimed at it's price bracket and leader of the pack. Convenient, discrete, versatile,audio quality without excessive booming base (for those who live in flats, small houses, etc.) Very simple set-up. Delighted. Oh yes and the value! 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic sub for the price Nice and compact and very good bass response I'm very happy with this and would recommend 12 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I'm pleased with this product. After reading the reviews for the Yamaha YSTFSW050 I decided to give it a try. I bought it to go on my computer to give support to the existing stereo speakers. I'm happy with the performance and it looks good with my setup. 12 September 2014
