Yamaha YST-SW012 Subwoofer

Do you lack a high-quality sound system that will enable low frequencies to be heard through the home’s sound system? A music or movie theater sound system will not be complete without a subwoofer that can handle the bass notes. A loudspeaker will not be able to efficiently handle all the sound frequencies and a good subwoofer will be able to take off the bass work from an amplifier.

Enjoy complete sound experience – all the high and low frequencies included – with the Yamaha YST-SW012 Subwoofer at home. One thing that makes the YST-SW012 subwoofer a good addition to the home sound system is that it can handle and project the low frequencies or bass tones that usually come out as muffled sounds in a typical loudspeaker. With the YST-SW012 subwoofer, one gets to experience the full impact of a song or the sound effects of a movie – especially one that happens to feature a lot of bass tones.

Bass tones will also be clearer and more distinct with the use of this subwoofer. The fact that the YST-SW012 subwoofer runs on high 100 W dynamic power makes the subwoofer brand better. Such piece of information will assure the interested purchasers that the product is high powered and can perform even under difficult circumstances.

One common problem with audio equipment is the pickup or the amplification of extraneous and unwanted noise that disrupts the quality and performance of an audio appliance. With the YST-SW012 subwoofer, such extraneous and unwanted noises can be limited or even prevented with the subwoofer’s linear port. With such design, the overall audio output of the subwoofer is expected to be cleaner and more accurate compared to those subwoofer brands that use a different type of port.

It can also be noticed that the YST-SW012 subwoofer is lightweight for its size. Such quality is an advantage because it makes the subwoofer portable and easy to transfer from one place to another. No need to carry heavy subwoofers that would make placement and re-placement a daunting task. And although the YST-SW012 subwoofer is a relative light audio appliance, there is nothing light about its performance and output.

Moreover, the YST-SW012 subwoofer is neither hard to use nor difficult to connect. Setting this subwoofer up is as simple as plug and play – one merely needs to plug the subwoofer into a receiver and a power outlet to put the equipment to good use. Also, a good performing product like this subwoofer can be purchased at an affordable price.

There is no need to worry about spending so much money just to acquire a good subwoofer to complete the sound system at home. To complete the package, this subwoofer comes with a long RCA cable for it to be easily connected to an RCA subwoofer output.


The Yamaha YST-SW012 Subwoofer may offer many benefits and boasts nice features, but it also has its fair share of downsides. One of the negative points of the YST-SW012 subwoofer is that it does not come with a standby mode feature that would have been nice to have in an audio appliance that is used every now and then. Also, this subwoofer does not offer a lot of features – just the basic ones and a rich & smooth bass output. If one is looking for various and unique features in a subwoofer, this will not make the cut.

Furthermore, the YST-SW012 subwoofer has no auto shut off feature – which means that the sound appliance is always on, unless it is manually turned off with the switch found at the back of the subwoofer. The power switch is not strategically placed and it is difficult to reach when the YST-SW012 subwoofer is placed against a wall or a divider with small space. There are also feedbacks that the YST-SW012 subwoofer works well enough in amplifying movie sound effects but not for the accurate playing of songs.


The Yamaha YST-SW012 Subwoofer is a complete mix of depth, power, and clarity that one would like to have in a music or movie theater sound system. This subwoofer can surely handle low notes and loud volume without crumbling or creating muffled sounds that will affect the audio output of the sound system.

Also, the fact that the YST-SW012 subwoofer can be purchased at an affordable price makes the equipment a catch and a good deal to make. There are negative points with this product as well but the majority are only minor ones.
