Rated 5 out of 5 by JoePancerz Perfect! (except power save)
excellent and simple, built in cross over adjust, polarity reverse (to sinc with head unit output), power save (sucks), independent volume adjust, connects via interconnect cable (not included), for a sub woofer under 100$ msrp (can be purchased cheaper) you can touch the sound or in my opinion the great looks with the cover off, the power and sharpness bring my neighbor knocking any time i turn my sony 820 reciever over 26 (less than 50%) with sub at 80% vol, great sub no problems in 2 yrs all adjustment work fine and it looks good, my only complaint is the power save button/mode once it goes into power save mode there is a 3-5 second delay before you will hear bass again, but its an easy fix just turn it off using the button on the back of sub, buy it and enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by bohmmeister Take Your Audio Fidelity to Another Level
After "enjoying" life without a subwoofer for 24 years I finally broke down and bought one last fall. My choice was Sony's SA-W2500 Powered Subwoofer. I did some online research and read the reviews for a number of subwoofers. Buying this subwoofer was in all honesty a leap of faith based on a number of positive reviews. This purchase has had a profound effect on the performance of all of my home audio and video components. This subwoofer reproduces all of the pounding lows that most speakers just will not produce. If you want to help all of your music playback, digital cable content output, and movie playback sound rich and achieve a higher level of audio fidelity, purchase this subwoofer. If your system doesn't have a subwoofer, this one is a high performing, low cost choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Watchfuli Great Purchase fro the Money
I purchased this sub woofer because I found that my sound bar didn't have the bass that was needed to get the full dynamic audio range that I needed to accomendate my hearing loss. I watch "Las Vegas" and anyone who watches that show knows how deep Ed's voice is. With my hearing loss, I had to strain and missed out on most of his dialogue. Not any more with this sub woofer. I have the volume set right in the middle and everything is perfect. I'm know that there are better and more expensive sub woofers out there but I can't see any reason to spend the extra cash unless you need more features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by silverback great for the price!
I connected the unit to my sounbar,and I was surprised at the the sound quality,and deep thundering bass for a 60watt unit of this type! I have to say It sounds realy good on my movies, but I have to set the bass volume level dial at about 3/4.because it fludders a little bit on MAX.but for the small living earea I have I can adjust every thing to sound good! you can make good sound if you do it right! In all I'm pleased with the unit for the price,and good movie sound !you don't always need a lot of WATTS to make good sound quality. It's how you do it ,and match every thing together!to make good sound,and performace..ME LIKE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matteye Nice Subwoofer
I just hooked up this subwoofer to another manufacturers sound bar and am extremely pleased. The entire dynamic of the sound is changed by reproducing the low frequencies. First I played a DVD movie and then a BD of a live concert and was completely blown away. Sony hit it out of the park with this one and the value is unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocket66 Great Addition To My Audio System
I added this unit to my home surround sound system. This thing will rattle the windows! Pure bass with no distortion, at least at the levels I have used it. Frequency cut-out is selectable, and the unit is self powered. Great sound for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JEREMY Good for the money
Sounds great with other sony speakers, esp for the money. I did not like the power saver on the sub, when it turns off and needs to come back on takes too long. The part of show/movie will all most be over. But besides it sounds good.
