Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
100 watts
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
25 - 180 Hz
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

3-Way post connections

Subwoofer Enclosure

Powered Subwoofer
This means that the home subwoofer is powered with a built-in amplifier. If it is not powered, than a separate amplifier is required.
Shielded means that the subwoofer enclosure has contained the subwoofers magnetic power within the enclosure. This is to protect neighboring electronics from the effects of the magnet. A non-shielded subwoofer can distort the image on a television, and possibly cause permanent damage if the sub is placed to close to the television.
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Paintable Frame
This means that the frame or cabinet of the speaker can be painted to match its surroundings.
In-Wall Installation
These items are designed for installation in the walls of your home.
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.

Yamaha 10" sub

January 18, 2011

This sub has a very full range of bass. It really fills in the bottom end weather your watching a blue ray or listening to really any type of bass heavy music. There is only one down side I can think of and that is that it doesn't shut off automatically when you turn your receiver off. Yamaha is a trusted name and I dont think there would be a better deal that you could find for the quality and price of this sub. Believe me I checked . Unless your reciever or home amps are very powerful and your afraid of blowing it I would say definitely go with this sub, you won't be sorry.

Worth the money

For $100 you can't lose. Really shakes the house on some of the deep sound effects when watching DVD's.
