Sony SA-W3800


$300.00 Released July, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very low frequency response and good overall range for the price point. Sturdy, durable design that can easily withstand accidents and drops. Great volume--can output very loudly with no distortion.

The Cons:Very heavy (at about 50 lbs.) and large compared to similar competing models. Magnetic shielding isn't great, may pick up some static. Auto power saver feature is too quick to turn the subwoofer off, requires fairly high volume level to turn back on again.

The Sony SA-W3800 is a standalone, 15” performance subwoofer designed to work alongside a surround-sound system. Enclosed in a mica-reinforced cellular woofer case, the SA-W3800 uses Motion Feed Back Technology with an advanced bass-reflex design to output up to 200W of power alongside a wide 20-200Hz frequency range.
