Ultra-compact powered subwoofer
Our take on the Yamaha YST-FSW050 by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Get punchy bass from the sleek, space-saving Yamaha YST-FSW050. Unlike conventional subwoofers, this ultra-compact sub can fit on a shelf in your A/V rack or cabinet so you won't need to sacrifice valuable floor space. And the low-profile design nicely complements single-speaker sound solutions, like Yamaha's Digital Sound Projectors. Front-mounted controls give you easy access to power and volume.

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-FSW050 ensures the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance.
High Efficiency Amplifier: The 100 watt dynamic power amplifier used in the YST-FSW050 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 music listening.
Driver: The YST-FSW050 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-FSW050'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-FSW050 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-FSW050 also comes with 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-FSW050.
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.
Line Input: The subwoofer has a rear mounted mono-RCA Line Level input. This 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-FSW050 if your receiver or amplifier features a stereo subwoofer output..
System Connector: The YST-FSW050 features a 3.5mm minijack port for connecting the supplied system control cable. By connecting this cable between the YST-FSW050 and your Yamaha receiver (equipped with a system connector jack) the power of the YST-FSW050 can be controlled by the power button of your connected Yamaha receiver.
