I purchased this subwoofer to pair it up with the Vizio VSB200 sound bar (also available at Walmart). I noticed that the Vizio Sound Bar User Guide’s illustration of how to connect a powered subwoofer, was a photo of this subwoofer, so I figured Vizio had probably tried it out with its sound bar and that at the very least, the sub wouldn’t tank the sound bar.
Set up was a simple matter of connecting one cable (enclosed in the subwoofer’s box) from the soundbar to the subwoofer.
This sub doesn’t provide house-rattling bass, to be sure, but we were looking for a fuller, richer, deeper bass sound, with at least a little cinematic emphasis in dramatic scenes, and that’s what we got. Our primary use is for HD Cable television and Pay Per View movies.
I rate the sub 5 out of 5 because it has much better performance than we had any right to expect for $99.99.
Added this subwoofer to the Vizio Soundbar (also available at Walmart) and the effect was a great home theater sound without wires stretching all over the place! Love it! And for the price, you can't go wrong. Highly recommended!
I read the reviews on this product before buying. Most were very good. I was a little bit skeptical however because I am a HUGE audio freak, and have been for years.
This sub, shakes the windows, fills the room with bass, and when I popped a cd in my blu ray player, I felt like I was live at the concert. VERY good product.
While any man would love a higher powered larger sub this meets my needs perfectly. I think the only thing that needs to be said is my wife hates it but me and my son LOVE it!!
Big boom at a great price. Efficient and deep 10" active sub. Lots of connectivity for both Sub/Satellite or direct sub. Has cut-off and and bass volume knobs for customizing your subwoofer. Sub can be set to turn off after 1 min of inactivity, thus saving on your electrical bill.
Easy to setup and will add that degree of bass you need for your sound system at a very competetive price.
For around 100 bucks you won't beat this woofer. I purchased it to give a bottom to an office audio system that needed it. I also chose this product because it has clips to attach left and right leads for connecting to my system. Many woofers have only the one plug for system hook up. If you compare the quality of this woofer to the $200 - $250 ones like I did in a large electronics store, you will notice the relative inferior quality of this woofer. Just need a woofer to give a bottom? It does it. Need a woofer for a higher quality system and you are a quality music lover? You will be disappointed. The high quality is just not there, in spite of the Sony brand.
Connection to an existing Vizio Soundbar was simple and quick. The results were FANTASTIC! Very good subwoofer sound and makes watching TV more enjoyable.
I bought this subwoofer to finish off my surround system. The rest of the system is Pioneer but I wasn't willing to spend what Pioneer wanted for their powered subwoofers. This subwoofer does a pretty good job for the money. But to be honest I think I like the down firing subwoofers better. For the price though Sony has good quality equipment. It's only been 1 month since I bought the subwoofer but I use it pretty hard and quite often.
This is an excellent low cost sub woofer system. It performs well in my 7.1 channel surround sound system made by Sony. The original sub system burned out so this was a replacement. I am very happy with this unit and its performance. Setting the two controls about mid range works best in my system . Much higher and the neighbors will start beating on the walls.
Awesome speaker...deep deep bass! Gotta love it!
excellent product for the price. only downside is auto power doesn't work very well, so use power button (lower left back panel).
Hooked this up to my vizio sound bar and it thumped. Played medal of honor on my ps3 and my neighbors in the house next door said they could hear it but it wasn't so loud that it bothered them. It has real good bass and you can feel it in your chest.
This thing sounded a lot better than I expected it to. I bought it to replace a more expensive sub that popped. Couldn't be happier.
For 100 dollars you cannot complain. Really increased the over all home theater experience. The only con would be the fact the power button is on the back, but overall very happy. BB wanted over 200 in store for a comp. sub. And rec'd in 3 days..whoa.
Beautiful rich bass sound. Very nice, and has automatic power-save setting.
diffinately improves everyones speaker system. The bass is incredible. My Cerwin Vegas are very crisp and clear and this subwoofer is just what the doctor ordered. Very powerful and very sensitive. Cabinet is vibration-free. Very good quality. Equal to those twice and three times more money..I am considering buying one more...
Easy to plug into the Vizio Sound Bar with the cord that is supplied with the unit.
Excellent Subwoofer which produce strong BASS. highly recommended.
This powered subwoofer is amazing. I didn't think much of this unit and thought all of the reviews were overgeneralized hype, but this product lives up to its praises. The whole delivery process went rather smoothly without any issues. I unpacked the box and at first glance thought this was a little too light to be a good subwoofer. I plugged it into my system without any issue and then I was surprised by the responisvness, tone, and overall quality of this speaker. The speaker was tight and didn't overwhelm the rest of the system. We have a smaller house and we like to listen to our music loud enough to hear it thoughout the home and this woofer does an excellent job. We have a 12 inch Acoustic Research in our family room and I am thinking about buying another one of these to compliment that system. I got this on sale for $98....you cannot go wrong at that price.....or at the normal price of $139 either. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
This is a great addition to any home theater system. There is a lot of sound with definite highs and lows. The only thing I don't like about this product is the energy saver/standby mode. It'll go into standby while in use. I'll be watching a blu-ray and it'll shut off. Now I don't even turn on the power saving mode. Other than that, it's a great woofer.
