Advanced YST Technology II:
The Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology is
a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out
impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. By doing this, the
YST-FSW150 ensures the highest
levels of sound pressure and overall performance.
High Efficiency Amplifier:
The 130 watt dynamic power amplifier used in the YST-FSW150 is capable of delivering large amounts of
reserve power for accurate reproduction of high energy peaks needed for those
extreme action movie moments that require a heavy dose of bass. This technology
also emphasizes the dynamic qualities and provides a sharper sound image for
The YST-FSW150 uses a down-firing 6.3125" multi-range woofer to create tight and accurate bass.
The 6.3125" woofer is also video shielded so you can place the unit close to your TV
without harming the Television.
Linear Port Design: The YST-FSW150's bass reflex enclosure uses a
front-firing linear port to minimize extraneous
noise which helps offer distortion free bass notes.
Mounting: The Yamaha YST-FSW150 powered subwoofer's enclosure design
is engineered to be mounted horizontally or vertically. The powered subwoofer
features four attached feet which allows you to mount the unit horizontally for
a low-profile installation. The YST-FSW150 also comes with a vertical stand and
four self-adhesive non-skid pads that allow you to mount the unit vertically if
preferred. The unit's subwoofer will be side-firing if mounted vertically.
Power: This control button powers on and off the YST-FSW150.
Volume Control: You can adjust the volume level (0-10) of the subwoofer to match the level of sound
from the other speakers in your application.
Input: The subwoofer has a rear mounted mono-RCA Line Level input.
input is for use with receiver or amplifiers featuring a filtered subwoofer
pre-out jack. You may need a "Y adapter" to connect the left and right outputs of
your receiver or amplifier to the YST-FSW150 if your receiver or amplifier
features a stereo subwoofer output..
System Connector: The YST-FSW150 features a 3.5mm minijack port for
connecting the supplied system control cable. By connecting this cable between
the YST-FSW150 and your Yamaha receiver (equipped with a system connector jack)
the power of the YST-FSW150 can be controlled by the power button of your
connected Yamaha receiver.
