Yamaha YST-SW216


$150.00 Released May, 2006

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Price is right for low-end to midrange home theater. Active subwoofer (externally powered). Hi-cut filter knob.

The Cons:A little hefty for the power it outputs. Anyone with a decent knowledge of Home Theater will find rear extra speaker terminals unecessary.

The Yamaha YST-SW216 is an entry-level front-firing subwoofer that provides up to 100 watts of dynamic power.  The subwoofer features Yamaha's advanced YST II technology in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel impedence and provide a high level of performance.
