using this subwoofer as part of a 9.2 system, bass is excellent for home theatre, recommend this unit as a add on to existing subwoofer to balance your room out.

I have trusted Yamaha for over 10 years. The subwoofer is great, it has a stunning impact. The bass is well defined for being one of the lowest level of subs from Yamaha. The sub would be good for Home Theatre, but not 2 channel setups because there is no crossover frequency nob. The Sub is set to get the crossover frequency information from the processor of reciever. The sub will work well with a Yamaha reciever because of the Cinema DSP programs. It helps you get more bass out of your sub. I have mine in a corner that is where you will get the most bass response. It may sound a bit muddy so might have to play with it some. When played with the movie Transformers it just thunders. There is so much vibrations coming from the sub that it has already knocked some movie posters in frames off the wall. at first the sub will sound somewhat undefined when it is new but after the 10 hour break in period it sound great. If my Theatre room wasn't sound proofed I would be the most hated in my neighbor hood. I wouldn't give up this sub ev en if I had to. You can't compare this sub to a Paradigm. But other than that I encourage you to buy it.

Strength:

Clear sound. Very responsive. Nice tone. Polished look.

Weakness:

No auto on/off switch, must be manually turned on. Not overpowering (if thats what your looking for)

Picked up this sub as a dealer was going out of buisness. Sound is great! Very clear. Works well my Yamaha Reciever. Not for huge systems. Better suited in an apartment or small area. Big bang for a little buck!
