Twisted Flare Port for a clearer, tighter bass

The Yamaha NSSW050 uses a revolutionary new design of bass port for a more natural, less distorted sound. Rather than using straight sides, this Yamaha's port is twisted and flared to smooth and diffuse the air output. This reduces distortion, giving you a tighter, cleaner bass response that's much truer to life.

Powerful sound
Driving the dedicated eight inch sub is a powerful 50W amplifier. This not only produces a deep, powerful bass but also gives precise control of the bass - meaning it doesn't distract from the rest of the music/soundtrack.

Incorporating Yamaha's renowned YST II for bass depth
Providing Yamaha speaker systems with awesome bass for decades now, YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology) optimises the output to give not only a powerful bass response but also one that's stable and accurate. In short, its powerful bass without the flab.

Smooth design
Featuring a deeply sculptured grille, the NS-SW050 looks less boxy than your usual subwoofer. The matte black finish makes the ideal match for most home cinema amps and sources.

The perfect partner for a wide range of speaker systems, the Yamaha NS-SW050 packs a smooth punch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sounding small budget sub Due to living in a flat, I don’t have my volume turned up too high, but wanted to add a bit of depth to my movies and music. This fits the bill lovely. It’s low cost, offers good bass, and is fairly compact. It will struggle to give room shaking LFE, but for the price, you wouldn’t expect that. The only niggle I have is the power switch is at the back. Can be fiddly to turn on, and I do forget to turn it off. Would have at lease liked the on light to be visible from the front. Missing some features of more expensive models, but if you don’t need them, this is an excellent choice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel the music Had this for a week and is my first sub woofer. cheap as chips price but a really involving addition to my tv sound. Coupled with a Panasonic plasma display playing through a Denon DRA800H receiver outputting to Cambridge Audio stand mount S20 sealed enclosure speakers the sound is truly excellent. My receiver allows you to set the crossover value (80Hz for the S20) and allow for phase changes due to sub woofer placement and the resulting sound is convincing, natural and a pleasure to listen to. I have the sub woofer set to 50% output and it is spot on to my ears. Have tried higher output settings and that is truly anti social and quite uncomfortable to physically experience. Used sensibly this unit adds immensely to my listening experience and is really a bargain buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid sounding sub Having had a Kef sub before and bought this as a replacement, I am impressed with the solid sub reinforcement this unit provides. It is superior in depth and response, providing a less boomy bass. Has minimal controls so your receiver needs to provide crossover selection and phase control. Recommend as a budget sub.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money. Paired with my Ruark MR 1 mk 2's. Sound great. Basic controls so simple to set up. Very happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and sound I bought this as an upgrade to the similar-looking (but non-active) subwoofer in my Yamaha YHT1840 Home Cinema kit, in the hope that it would improve the lower register. It did. Although the original unit gave a pretty good performance, the NSSW050 goes lower, and has a more punchy sound to it. Its quoted frequency responses goes down to 28Hz, corroborated by the fact that the 30Hz test tone on my vinyl calibration record is definitely audible (it wasn’t with the original kit). There must be ‘better’ subs for sale, but at £129, NSSW050 represents good value for the money. And it is well made and looks good too. One small point - the spec says it has auto on/off, which I take to mean that it will switch off when the sound source goes off. But it doesn’t, so I have to remember to switch the sub on and off as necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha sub woofer Recently taken delivery of this item to use in conjunction with my Yamaha amp and Tannoy speakers.It is brilliant ! The depth and richness of music is greatly enhanced and it has quite clearly exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value and simple set up Bought for medium size room to add bass to existing Yamaha soundbar. The 8 inch speaker gives a fine tight bass providing much more 'gravity' for movies and music. The best thing though is simplicity of set up. No crossover and phase controls here! Dial in your desired volume on simple control. Remember, sub woofers are to compliment your sound, not dominate it. Early days but expect usual Yamaha build quality and reliability. It was going to be this or the Poll for me and this one got the vote on price. Good value
