  • Anyone know how it compares to the NS-SWP40?

    • Opened and supposedly never used.

    • Not brand new

  • +2

    Not a lot of power for money

    • +2

      Can you suggest a better one at this price point?

      • +1

        No - but I wouldn't expect to get any half-decent sub at this price point. Better off spending a little more than buying a sub that's effectively 50W with 10% THD. Either that, or buy a 2.1 Edifier set of you don't need much power. As standalone sub, I just don't think it's great value.

      • You can get a 250w second hand yammy for less tha his price

  • Got it second hand. Don't have high hopes. Good sub for small rooms. Save your money and buy something better for bigger rooms.

  • Aside from some price bouncing about at the start of the year, this is pretty much the same that it's been going for since March. Comparing it to an old price hike doesn't make it a deal.

  • I have Yamaha YSP 2700 sound bar and subwoofer that I'm very happy with. Would there be any reason I would want to add a second subwoofer like this? I don't actually even know if it's an option..

    What about if I got a lower end Yamaha sound bar for the other tv and I could add this Subwoofer?

  • IMHO it might be best to add those extra $352 to one's budget for the main speakers, and do without a sub.

    • No way, music without low Freq Bass is not music.

    • You're better off with a sub even though weak, than throwing more money onto speakers. $350 won't get you anything but diminishing returns.

      A separate sub let's you get around dead zones in your room if you don't have optimal position for your towers.

      Plus, you can use the crossover on the sub.

      • Unfortunately this unit doesn't have a crossover so you would need to balance the crossover of low frequency using some other means…

  • Something to be aware of with this unit is the lack of crossover. You're not going to be able to control at what frequency bass is pushed to the subwoofer. It's just going to be all or nothing with volume control.
