MINIRIG Subwoofer Portable Rechargeable Bass Speaker – 80 Hour Battery – : Very good

I bought one of these to take skiing and it was one of the best decisions i’ve ever made. Small enough to carry in a backpack and the sound is amazing. Battery seems to last very well, easily a full day on the mountain with heavy, loud use.

Totally amazing piece of kit. . As if the minirig wasn’t already a dream in a small packet. Now the subwoofer which blows away any concept of small things not having great powermy son headed off with them in a back pack and was like a mobile dubstep concertthanks minirig.

Excellent value for money and a great accompliment to any party.

Got the minirig speaker last year which is brilliant but this latest addition takes it to a whole new level. Build quality of the sub is brilliant, like all minirig products. Switch this baby on and play your favourite tracks, feel the deep bass as it rumbles into life. Can’t believe this sub is battery powered and portable. Even got a on/off switch disgusted as the led light on the front so you can switch it on then off and compare your tracks. Overall was apprehensive about spending £150 on the sub but it’s a brilliant buy, any other manufacturer would charge many times more for this quality product. Don’t fear you won’t be disappointed.

Brilliant sound for small size. Amazing power and perfect for those trips away from home and on the go. Super build quality and packaging.

I already own two minirigs so had been waiting for the sub for sometime, i have waited a while to review as i wanted to run the sub for a while before i decided how much i like it. I have used this sub & 2 x minirigs as a small system for my technics, the sound quality is excellent for such a small system and is loud enough to have a small party but not too loud to annoy your neighbours. I agree that it is quite expensive but you pay for what you get which is a british made piece of quality. I have to add pasce have fantastic customer service to as i had a problem with one of my minirigs & they fixed it & sent it back very quickly.

Already sent this back and got a new one sent me b sure the charge inlet became loose. No considering sending it back again as the aux connection to the minirig is crackly and the sub doesn’t always kick in and have to twiddle the cable. It’s not the cable as i’ve tried several. Build quality doesn’t seem to be that good after a few weeks usuage. Sound is great if it’s working well.

Grate speaker just the job cheers.

First review, that’s a big responsibility. When i bought my (standard) minirig two years ago, i couldn’t find anything to gripe about, apart from the poor bass response. Not really a surprise in a unit the size of a grapefruit. At the time there was talk of a sub, but i learned to love the rig as it was and it has been all over the place with me ever since. Still love it like the first day. Today i bought the subwoofer and fell in love all over again. Such depth and richness of sound, it complements the minirig perfectly. Surprisingly good on low-gain and at low volumes as well. I am not going to go on, everything that was said in the reviews of the standard minirig on here holds true for the new device. Plus it has an on/off switch, which (when the lead comes) will also turn the minirigs off too.

Couldn’t recommend these enough amazing product really works well with the minirig.

The minirig by itself is a top quality speaker, but with something that size you will always lack real bottom end base. That’s where the subwoofer comes in. Easy to connect with a mini jack cable, the quality and depth of the base is top class. But this is not something you need unless you want to listen to base heavy music.

Good solid bass, good battery life, good case.

It makes the minirig sound ten times better especially when listening to dance or rap music. Only negative is sometimes there is a lag between pressing play on your music device and they song starting to play through subwoofer.

There is literally no better portable speaker. I have one early minirig, one new one, and a sub. Not only does it look and feel totally badass (it comes in a vibesy little zip up, super snug protective case for bunging in your back pack), they sound incredible. They are made by some epic dudes in bristol, and deserve our love and audio admiration and sonorous support. The quality is unbelievably good, with the crispest, juiciest nuggets of sound coming through, not a beat is lost. From psytrance to sensual beats minirigs are literally the ones. They are so loud, even more so when on a table or surface. The battery life is next level. I use mine at festivals throughout the weekends for work and they last. I do not recommend it – but i have dropped mine a bunch, flooded them in my tent. . And accidentally flung them both into a canal once, and (after a couple of days in rice) they worked perfectlyi’ve had my first minirig since the early days, and it’s still as badass as ever. Only ❤ for these speakers – they come with me on every protest, to every party and boom out my backpack on my bike on the reg.

If you already have the amazing minirig speaker and think the quality of sound is superb then wait until you try it with this. The subwoofer transports your amazing minirig speaker sound to an all new level of amazingness. Even better if you plug 2 or more minirig speakers into this subwoofer – can’t wait to try this out at festivals next year. I’ve tried other portable speakers and heard many others but none compare with these.

Definitely the best small audio speakers on the market.

This is a ‘must-have’ upgrade for any mini-rig owner. I had a tiny issue with a zip head on the free carry-bag, which was a fraction open and fell off. My haste to fix it with pliers and gently squeeze it back in place only snapped it off completely.I explained what happened and minirig sent a new bag,no questions asked – superb service. I demo’d the product in the local bar i dj at, and the staff thought i was still plugged into their main system – it’s seriously that good. (it’s my backup in case the electrics cut out). Good for house-parties, bbq and especially long journies in the car.

Makes mini rig a whole new sound system. Needs another mini rig now to go with sub and mini rig.

The subwoofer is beautifully made and looks and sounds great. The case that is comes in makes it perfect for travelling.

Bought a minirig speaker for festivals and decided to buy the subwoofer about a year later. I didn’t realise how much bass my music was missing until i plugged the sub in. It makes a great speaker even better and i always recommend minirig to anyone asking about portable speakers. I have had it at 4 day festivals using it full blast and it still has plenty of charge.

Such a good product, it is amazing, i have linked it up with minirigs sound is awesome.

Absolutely one of the best purchase i have ever had. Sub and minirig are in another level.

Klipsch R-112SW Amplifier, Licks hard and gets low

I have a barn conversion with a huge lounge full height vaulted ceiling 35 foot, this sub fills this room. You do not just hear this monster, you feel it. Pop some music on and boom it’s like night club, i really find it hard to put the power of this into words. Even on a third of its power it’s potent, it has huge punch and deeeeeeeeep, deeeeeeep, we are talking deep here, rumble. Literally if you really hate your neighbours, buy this.

I am very happy with this subwoofer.

Simply amazing build quality and sound quality. If you really appreciate music and would like to hear the best of it, then look no further, this is an awesome sub. Really powerful and house shaking low bass. With this sub in your house you can now understand what is hans zimmer really all about .

“Huge huge huge sound
, Really powerful and rich in low deep bass!
, LOVE MY KLIPSCH!!!

Wow does this sub kick hard and low. Quality is amazing and a steal for just £300.

Great subwoofer, really pleased with it.

Gorgeous speaker, great sound, great service, thank you.

These speakers are incredible. Just make sure you have enough of a room you are putting this speaker in because it rumbles my house. Best money you can spend on your system. Klipsch have mastered the all around speakers for music, movies or gaming. With the right receiver you cannot ask for any better especially at this price rage.

I owned this sub for 3 months before selling due a desire for variety and boy. This thing goes very very low and loud. Specifically tuned for deep powerful bass. I had the volume at less than 50% throughout and it hits hard whenever required both music and movies. The price i had dropped significantly in amazon. So if your looking for a powerful sub on a tight budget, this is it.

Inateck IPX 7 Waterproof Shockproof Bluetooth Speaker – “Unbiased review” as asked by the seller.

Wuick delivery and sound quality top notch.

Good battery life, quick delivery.

Got it cheap and will treasure it.

Excellent quality and value and sound.

 its just a great speaker for any outdoor sports like mountain biking which is what i do or to be used by a swimming pool, beach, picnic or any similar activity where water might be near by. In terms of sound quality its much better than any portable device like a phone or tablet with much higher volume and a clear bass, none the less on my video review i do compare it with another set of speaker and my phone so that it helps to transmit the audio quality. I do believe that its well balanced and if someone is looking for a nice audio quality to use outside this is a great choice.

Would be 5 star but the bluetooth signal start to fail when more than 10ft away , other than that the speaker is very powerful and the sound is pretty good.

  • Small and compact with a great sound and a good price. Highly recommended
  • other than that the speaker is very powerful and the sound is pretty
  • “Unbiased review” as asked by the seller.

Loved this product, bought for my bikeit’s a very good product for the price and a lot louder than i expected top speaker great sound clear and small enough to go on my dash thank you.

Have been asked to review this product by the seller after being sent a replacement. As they said “being unbiased”. The initial one did not work. The buttons were irrisponsive. So asked about sending it back. The customer service people were great, and after a couple of questions sent a new one. There are a couple of strange things in the instructions. For something that is advertised as waterproof and shockproof. It says in the warnings, do not take it anywhere damp and do not drop it. So will have to see how long it lasts.

Great quality for a great price.

 **contents**1 x bluetooth speaker1 x micro usb cable1 x 3. 5m audio cable1 x carry case1 x carabiner1 x set of instructionsi have tested many bluetooth speakers over the past few months as i personally love listening to music so in my home you’ll find bluetooth speakers everywhere and i am always looking for improvements over what i already use which is where this little speaker comes into play. I chose to test this on out as it was quite small and compact however from the previous reviews it seems to be able to handle its own against other more expensive speakers. The one thing i really do like about this speaker is the simplistic design yet it stands out with that x on the front which i am a big fan of. Inside the box, you get the usual micro usb cable for charging the device and also the 3. 5m audio cable in case you want to go wired instead of wireless and a carabiner hook so you can hang this from your bag or trousers whilst listening to it. They also include a neo case to carry the speaker in for a bit of protection which i personally prefer when companies include these. As mentioned above this speaker does have a minimal design with a very small frame which means if you want to travel with this speaker you can and you will not have any issues carrying it unlike some of the other branded speakers which are either too heavy or just an awkward shape. This speaker is smaller than my iphone 7 plus which means if the phone sits in your pocket fine this speaker will do so too with no problems albeit the speaker is a bit chunkier than the iphone but i still had no issues carrying this in my pocket whilst i was out. They do include a carabiner hook so you can hang it from your bag as mentioned above but they also include a handle attached to the side of the speaker so you can hang it from your wrist which i personally prefer doing as i find it more comfortable this way and also easier to access the buttons should i need to.

Once charged it plays for ages which is great for taking it away on holiday or nights out getting ready with friends. Sound quality is really good.

Amazing sub that everyone with a minirig speaker should buy.

I purchased a minirig speaker back in february and absolutely loved it; so much so that i recently decided to purchase another as well as a sub so that i could make a full 2. I had always been impressed by the sound that the individual speaker produced, but having a full 2. 1 system just blows it out of the water. The bass that this tiny and lightweight sub can produce is just astounding and really compliments the speakers very well. While the speakers are very good as a stand alone, you simply don’t realise how much a little bass improves the sound. I listen to a range of music and the sub really works well with all types. It has the power and brunt for bass heavy music but it’s not overpowering when listening to less bass heavy music; it just provides a lovely warmth and fills in the gaps that the minirigs can’t quite reach. I purchased this set-up primarily as a portable system and due to its size/weight and vast battery life, it is more than capable of doing that. However, as a student i will be moving away from home to uni in september and so i was looking for a replacement for my current hifi as i won’t want to transport it every time i pop home.

Totally amazing piece of kit. . As if the minirig wasn’t already a dream in a small packet. Now the subwoofer which blows away any concept of small things not having great powermy son headed off with them in a back pack and was like a mobile dubstep concertthanks minirig.

Excellent value for money and a great accompliment to any party.

Absolutely no regrets about buying this puppy. Compliments the minirig perfectly. Where the minirig sounded impressive on it’s own, adding the sub takes portable sound to the next level. Two rigs and a sub, the fabled 2.

I am considering buying another 2 minirigs and another subwoofer. Amazingly loud, really portable, great battery life.

If you liked minirigs you’ll love their sub. I can’t listen to my minirigs now without the sub. We have 2 of these bad boys and 5 of the minirigs – greedy i know, but every person we meet who hears them wants one. So we end up selling them on (at cost) – sharing the love of good tunes on good equipment. Keep up the good work mr minirig – we love it.

The sound quality is amazing with the sub would recommend this item looking forward to summer in the parks with my mini rigs.

I already own two minirigs so had been waiting for the sub for sometime, i have waited a while to review as i wanted to run the sub for a while before i decided how much i like it. I have used this sub & 2 x minirigs as a small system for my technics, the sound quality is excellent for such a small system and is loud enough to have a small party but not too loud to annoy your neighbours. I agree that it is quite expensive but you pay for what you get which is a british made piece of quality. I have to add pasce have fantastic customer service to as i had a problem with one of my minirigs & they fixed it & sent it back very quickly.

This is a classic edition to the minirig. If you like the quality of sound at power and portable you will not be disappointed.

Makes mini rig a whole new sound system. Needs another mini rig now to go with sub and mini rig.

Step 1: remember that we are talking about portable speakers that run off batteries. Step 2: try to avoid comparing this device to $$$$$$$ stationary audio equipment. Ok, so i’ve owned my first minirig for about 6 months and had nothing but good things to say about it. The sound quality is awesome, the battery life is unbelievable, and the build quality is superb and robust. If your objective is portable sound with no compromise (except wireless) then there is nothing out there that can compete. Now i have the sub (and a second minirig), and i can say that it is really a great combination. The sound is really full and rich, and the bass is exactly what i expected after reading the specs. No, with a 3′ woofer it will not break glass, but the bass is pretty damn good.

Great really adds a rich additional depth to the sound well worth the outlay. I was disappointed that they did not come with a stereo splitter for the additional minirig speaker i bought at the same time.

The difference this makes to 2 minirigs is amazing the bass is deep and smooth and compliments the minirigs very well. The only thing i would improve is when buying as a set ie 2 minirigs and a subwoofer i think the custom stereo splitter cable should be given as part of the package free of charge. As i was disposing of the packaging which consisted of the packing bag with a few other bags inside that were used as packing, a set of the splitter cables fell out of the packing. So the custom stereo splitter cable is supplied with the whole package. It could have just been more carefully packed to be made more obvious as it very nearly got put in the bin with waste packing. So on the whole im even more happier with the minirigs and the service supplied by minirig themselves.

Bought a minirig speaker for festivals and decided to buy the subwoofer about a year later. I didn’t realise how much bass my music was missing until i plugged the sub in. It makes a great speaker even better and i always recommend minirig to anyone asking about portable speakers. I have had it at 4 day festivals using it full blast and it still has plenty of charge.

The best portable soundsystem.Price is high for woofer but the quality is everything you want. Took me a couple days to notice i was putting cables in wrong & playing it in low power. Now i know to attached my ipod to the high gain first, then go out the subs low gain to the minirigs.

Yamaha Electronics Yamaha NSSW100 Powered Subwoofer – Does what it says on the tin

An excellent addition to my existing hi-fi setup. The extra bass adds an amazing amount of volume (as in 3d presence not loudness) to any music, even classical music and any music that does not use a lot of bass. When the tv/sky box sound is routed through the hi-fi, it helps bring out every detail. The only downside is that it can bring out too much background noise on some programs and movies, particularly in outdoor scenes, so occasionally need to be turned down slightly for those. It is one of yamaha’s cheaper models but i’m not sure you’d get a lot more (in a domestic set up) by getting any of the more expensive versions.

I cannot believe this was £109. The sound quality in terms of control, substance, blend and clarity is astonishing. The low reviews are probably due to using low quality cable, i put a qed reference cable on it,and as i said the sound is amazing. Initially i had a cheaper cable on it and the performance though good, notquite as good. I can imagine too low quality and cheap cables could ruin the sound.

Check the dimensions, this was much bigger than i expected, but as a result it really fills the room, 8x5m alongside some decent mid and upper frequency speakers. Coax/phono input or optical, both work fine. Plugs directly into the mains. Volume control on the rear too. Had fun finding the right place in the room, and as per some other suggestions don’t try obvious spots, sometimes the best sound can come from corners of the room as we found. The sub is black, wooden, with a fabric speaker grille on one side and the air hole on the other (that’s the technical term right?).

Would have liked it to be remote control.

Unpacked, connected, working. Big sound in a small package, i get a nice foot massage on the really crunchy scenes.

Pretty powerful subwoofer and easy to set up. I returned mine though as it has absolutely no configuration options (crossover freq, phase setting etc) and no high level inputs, so given the amp i had chosen, left me with no control over the output of the sub. It ended up sounding very muddy and muffled producing frequencies far higher than it should have done (around 200 – 500 hz and up). Instead i’m swapping it for a sub with more controls.

  • A few oddities, but little to complain about at this price
  • Powerful but very limited control.
  • Deeper than deep !

Love this, not sure about the neighbours mind you, that said, i don’t take the mickey or use it late at night or early in the morning. It really makes such a difference, i have it paired to my yamaha srt10000 and the combo is amazing.

Great – but make sure you have the amp to drive it.

Superb tight deep bass from a small box. Excellent build quility too.

Really really nice subwoofer with a lot of power. It works really nice with my yamaha yas 107 soundbar.

From the manufacturer

YAMAHA HIFI

Yamaha Sound Quality

Yamaha takes its expertise in producing world leading musical instruments and combines it with precision engineering to create superb sound with a true, clear quality.

The History of HiFi Audio Began with Yamaha

It has been 60 years since the Yamaha HiFi Player, the world’s first audio component bearing the “HiFi” name, was released. As a comprehensive musical instrument maker, as a materials and semiconductor manufacturer, and as experts in architectural acoustics and music promotion, Yamaha has always applied its accumulated technology base and experience to the task of producing ever improving audio equipment, forming the sound of each era of Yamaha’s history of innovation from the birth of the Yamaha HiFi player in 1954 to the present.

New Twisted Flare Port Produces Clear and Tight Bass

The all-new Twisted Flare Port takes advantage of extensive subwoofer development experience. The flared, gently twisting shape diffuses the vortex of air generated around the edge of the port, creating a smooth flow of air. This reduces extraneous noise not present in the original input signal and provides clear, accurate low frequency reproduction. From special effect sounds in movies to the atmosphere of a live venue, you hear bass that is clear, tight and realistic.

Advanced YST II for Awesome Deep Bass

Developed by Yamaha, the Advanced YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology II) combines negative-impedance and constant-current principles to drive the speaker cone with even tighter control than the previous version. Using Advanced Negative Impedance Converter (ANIC) circuits, this system dynamically optimizes effective speaker impedance to maintain excellent linearity. This means more stable and accurate low range response, not to mention higher sound quality.

25 cm (10”) woofer unit

Sensational bass response that adds significantly to overall listening enjoyment of music and movies.

Stylish Addition to Any Room

The gently rounded form with a slanted front surface presents a stylishly elegant appearance. Designed to be unobtrusive, It’s sure to look beautiful in a living room or home theatre room. Offered in black, walnut and white, so you can choose the model that best matches your other speakers.

An excellent subwoofer at a reasonable price.

My (very) old wharfdale finally kicked the bucket, and i really missed the deep bass when watching a movie or listening to music. But i didn’t want to spend a crazy amount of money, so at around 100 pounds, this seemed like a worthwhile punt. The sound quality is really crisp and carries superbly. You don’t even need to turn it up very loud to get the benefits (much to neighbours delight). It has it’s own volume control, so you can easily adjust to your needs.

Good for the price, but is only suitable for medium to small living-rooms. It is designed for quality of listening experience rather than power output.

After using a week i said it’s exellent.

This has transform my yamaha av system, giving rich bass tones. It is very heavy for its size and not too big. I am very pleased i went for the yamaha as it looks great and sounds fantastic.

Bigger than what i expected – should have checked the dimensions. However i suppose the compromise is the absolutely amazing sound. Have a yamaha soundbar with built in subwoofer but this has now changed the sound completely.

Affordable yet quality active subwoofer for hifi or home cinema application

I’ve learnt a lot about yamaha since i work in music retail and sell their products. Quality and technology is where they excel and even though this is a rather small subwoofer it sure delivers even i our 25×16 extension. Packaging is plain boxed as is common with a lot of their equipment and the item is well presented and built well. A phono cable is required to connect the item to your receiver which i didn’t know (thought it might be terminals). I used wharfedale diamond 9’s and diamond pro’s at the moment with an onkyo network receiver and the quality is great even without the subwoofer. When added though the sound really does change incredibly, with depth not otherwise possible. Great for movies as well, it shakes the floor.

I bought this to use with a mini hi-fi system that has small-ish desktop speakers. I don’t have room for full-size speakers where this system is installed, and the desktop speakers lack bass. The subwoofer corrects that problem, so i get decent bass without speakers taking up a lot of space. The sub itself lives under a desk, because placement isn’t particularly critical. I haven’t done laboratory tests, but the subwoofer sounds pretty good along with the rest of the system. I mostly use it for music, and with its volume setting so that it is only just audible alongside the main speakers. I suspect that for movies an increase in volume would be beneficial. The bass is smooth and relatively subtle at the volume levels i normally use, but it does not distort even at levels that cause objects in the room to shake. The subwoofer is unattractive in appearance, to my eyes. It’s just a featureless black cube — rather like a piece of industrial equipment.

An inexpensive but quality sub-woofer from yamaha which ticks all the boxes. Only one minor quibble, the power indicator light is on the rear of the unit which seems a bit silly as you can not see it. I have inadvertantly left the unit switched on a few times after turning off the tv and amp. Overall i would recommend this unit to anyone wanting a sub.

This little box delivers stunning sound from my 5:1 system in a 7x4x3 metre room.

Item as described, sound is very good and at a descent price too.

Notice that the power rating is not clearly stated. This is because it is underpowered – both the sw050 and the sw100 reuse the same class d amplifier from the cheaper older generation sw012. For the 8′ sw050 this is ok although for the 10′ sw100 wouldn’t recommend it.

25cm/10 inch driver for rich deep powerful bass

Great product, solidly built and happy with it but it would be nice to have a light on the front like my pioneer one does so you know when it is active and when on standby. In fact i’m not even sure if it ever does go into standby.

Does what it says on the tin. Sound is excellent – bought for the cinema room and this thing rocks.

I have owned this sub for a week, and wow, it had truly transformed my old separates system into something awsome. The speaker was delivered quicker than i expected, well packaged. The instructions were precise and it was very a quick and painless task to connect and setup the speaker. After a week i believe i have now the best set up and may it be music or movies everything has been brought to life in a understated but dramatic statement of intensity. Would recommend to anyone with to enhance their systems.

Great subwoofer giving superb bass to my tangent speakers. Very happy by the fact it’s simple to control and only has one button to switch it on and one to control the volume bass. Less time fiddling and more time spent listening to the sound it produces.

It’s a wonderful device, but the absence of an auto power switch might put off some. When switched on without an input signal my meter registers 6. 5w, so 24/7 over a year that’s about £7 of electricity.

Fantastic sub, does exactly what i hoped it would do, really adds to overall experience watching movies, love it.

This is a wonderful speaker, first it is not too big to look out of place in a typical english living room (size) but big enough to reproduce those low frequency bass sounds. It is simple to use, yes i’m shouting this out, just turn volume to minimum plug in the input cable and power it up then switch on – gently adjust the volume to your preference. Simple, it only has a volume control, which may upset those techy types who need to adjust the frequency response and phase shifting (?) to optimise their perceived quality of sound. This is not designed for outside concerts but for the majority of people who like to feel the explosions in a good film or indeed wish to listen to those outside concerts in the comfort of their own homes (toilet access etc – you know what i mean). The only complaint i’ve had so far is from my wife who asked for the bass to be turned down, apparently it hurts, which to me is a good thing, no not an excuse to annoy her indoors, as it means i can get the bass response from this that i like.

New Twisted Flare Port contributes to clear and tight bass

Nice product that makes its presence heard. A new sound experience has now arrived to my listening.

Not as good as i thought it would be.

The final component for my home cinema.

I wasn’t sure at first as i’ve owned kef for a long time – blimey, this thing is deep . It’s subtle when it needs to be and super ridiculous when you’re watching a marvel film.

Very easy to set up and well constructed. Sounds pretty good but don’t crank on the volume control too much, or it will start to struggle. I have three of these, and i’m planning on an sw100 very soon. Suffice to say that these things, plus my four monitor audio floorstanders, provide stomach churning bass where the movie requires it.

This sub is very good in looks and performance.

Advanced YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology II)

As an addition to my yamaha cd wifi player this subwoofer creates an all round warm sound. The subwoofer has a volume knob on the back panel so you can increase or decrease the bass sound to your own likening. As with all yamaha products it is very well made but beware it is quite heavy and approximately 14 inches in width and height. For extra bass and brilliant sound just great.

MINIRIG Subwoofer Portable Rechargeable Bass Speaker – 80 Hour Battery – Blue – Five Stars

Bought the sub and 2 minirigs. I absolutely love it and so do all my friends. I just can’t understand why my neighbours don’t.

Words can not describe how much this item helps the bass droooooooppp.

The only thing my partner has said as a slight negative is the length of the recharge time. Every thing else is perfect.

Had the luck to be one of the first to hear how good these are. If you’ve got a minirig without doubt you have to get a sub. Absolutely awesome level of sound.

If you’ve a mini rig or you/re lucky enough to own a pair, do buy one these.

Wicked sound deep bass i don,t think they can make them fast enough cos i had to keep checking for availabilty but this christmas i will unwrap some phat bass lines.

  • Use with other speakers, not just MiniRig Portables.
  • Amazing
  • Simply the best

The sub sounds amazingminirigs were extremely helpful and efficient when there was an issue with the delivery side (not minirigs error)thank you.

I bougt this to use with a couple of b&oa1 speakers. Have to say that in open air the minirig sub really does help the a1’s with the low end. I also used a simple 4 channel headphone amp to give more control over how much additional sub there is. Complete control (would be nice to have some control over cut off over the sub as when coupled with the a1’s there is a little too much lower mid)really good little speaker, deffo recomend for the size, pwoer and price.

I’ve just purchased the blue sub to couple my pair of green minirigs and the resulting output is portable audio heaven. I have heard and owned quite a few portable systems over the years and nothing comes close.

Sony HTCT290 – Really Pleased

Its just great, lovely sound easy to use no syncing issues.

Its nice to have good quality. Look forward to more hours listening to my music.

A great piece of kit, and after spending a fortune on a new tv, wich i am very pleased with but the sound was pants as in these new thin tvs there is no room for really good speakers a sound bar is a must. This fitted the bill and is very good.

Not bad for the cheapest sony soundbar out there.

Works great, sounds great, great performance for the price and the wireless sub is great as can be moved. The only downside is there is only optical in and one hdmi. No analogue in, i got around this buy purchasing an analog to digital adapter.

Geat sound ,i thought a sound bar at first was a pub that was open all day,sadly no,this one is much better and does not give you a hang over .

  • Nice to look at, sounds great and cheap. What more do you want.
  • Sound quality that packs a punch for the price
  • No lip sync issues

Had bought it for £150 and am using it for more than 08 months with a splendid performance.

Purchased with only a little research, but very pleased with the speaker so far. Great size, fits perfectly where i wanted it and very easy to setup up. Just two wires, clutter free and wow does it pack a punch sound wise. I’ve been wanting a sound bar for a long time, how it looked was important but also the cost. I did not want to spend a fortune but also wanted some sound quality over the low end models. I’ve used the optical cable included to connect to the tv and bluetooth for my phone. I can’t tell what sound level it’s on but i find myself turning it down at times. The added sub woofer fits perfectly behind the tv and out of sight – just the power cable for this, perfect for wireless heaven. All in all, very pleased with it, sound is great and can’t wait to watch a movie that needs that cinema quality experience.

Been using this for about a year and it replaces my old samsung one. It looks smart, connects well to samsung and apple.

This is an excellent sound bar and sub woofer for the price. I didn’t want to go cheap but not too expensive just somewhere mid range and the review for this one caught my eye. I was really impressed with the sound quality especially listening to music at high volume where the sub really comes into its own.

The product is sleek and fits nicely on wall, the sound is great for movies but not that great for music lovers the sub woofer is really disappointing considering it from sony there basss is just about average.

Great sound, just like being at the cinema.

I think i’ve read all there is to read online and in the product user guide, yet still i cannot get the audio and sony tv to sync satisfactory. Admittedly i am in the media profession so i suppose i’m sort of hyper critical but that said.

Amazing bass definitely recommend for a good home cinema set-up.

Replaced a samsung sound bar of lower quality. Great sound, and the bluetooth connected sub-wooofer can be positioned anywhere. As usual the sub-wooofer only adds a bass rumble but it comes into its own with action movies. Sound options are quite limited but the system puts out such a great sound why do you need to adjust it?.Very happy with my purchase.

Brilliant sound and wonderfully unobtrusive in room.

I could think a couple complaints but all in all for the price range this is an awesome product and you won’t get much better.

Immersive sound: Recreate that cinema feeling with Sony’s S-Force Pro Front Surround sound technology

Sounds is not what i was expecting, probably my living room is a big too big for it, maybe in a smaller room, it will perform better. It is ok, but not what i expected.

Great design, low footprint, easy to setup, good value for your money. Only wish i’d bought it sooner.

Easy to connect, sounds good, nice colour, whats not to like it’s sony.

Great sound and very easy to set up and operate.

Bought this soundbar because i was having difficulty in hearing the tv dialogue (i’m getting on a bit). Soundbar has been excellent, easy to install and operate and sound quality now vastly improved.

Ordered this from amazon warehouse so a bit dubious, especially about some of negative comments regarding lip sync. Up and running within 10 minutes (i did read manual carefully prior to set up). My tv is a sony bravia but 6 years old and i was also worried that the sound bar would block out tv remote signal. The sound bar is very compact in height and absolutely no problems with tv controls. Also it synced with my tv and the sky remote automatically – a breeze. The only negative is that the sub woofer is fairly sizeable, but it is tucked away discretely and again connected wirelessly with no problems. Also play music from my ipod/iphone which all connected easily through bluetooth.

Simple connectivity: one simple HDMI connection to TV and easy wireless link to your smartphone with Bluetooth

Liked improvement in tv sound (sony 4k bravia). No indication of sound level from remote. No problem with lip sync, press the voice button on the soundbar remote.

Use it for every day use and movies sounds great little frustrating setting up but once done it’s fine.

Sound from the sound bar is very tinney. Changed hdmi and ungraded optical cable. Very disappointed in this product, sounded great in store. Subwoofer is good but needs volume up to high to really appreciate it.

Easy to set up, excellent sound, the sub woofer really supplements the overall sound, providing a subtle base when listening or watching something with a deep base sound, otherwise its just the bar you can detect. Make sure you pair the sub woofer speaker whilst its reasonably close to the bar, once paired, you can stand it where you like, there’s a good 8ft, distance from bar to sub woofer in my set up. Usual sony quality, which transforms the sound completely.

It works wonders just with the bluetooth connection. Using it on a desktop pc with a bluetooth receiver is just great. Not a lot of cable management and the quality is just out of this world.

I got this item so i could mainly listen to must from my phone or computer in the living room. Obviously its also made to use connected to the tv, so i have done this too. As a tv sound bar:i have the bar connected to the tv via optical cable and have not tried the rest. So any results i receive may differ if another form of connectivity is used. The sound produced from films is amazing. Does well at producing base and does not seem to struggle with anything i have thrown at it so far. The sub has its own volume if you want more or less, so it will not take over the experience. Voices are clear and explosions are full and surround the room. The soundtrack to a move is as clear as any talking throughout. As a bluetooth music player:after listening to a movie or two i was not surprised how it sounded when i listened to music through it.

. And brilliant sound, am very happy with it.

Slim design: designed for style and substance offering a slim elegant profile to blend any living environment

Easy to follow quick set up guide. Let down by not as clear instruction manual. Adding to a different brand tv with hdmi arc required switching back and forth between different pages of the manual. Having said that, once set up it works well with excellent sound quality and the hdmi arc allows on/off and volume control using the sky q remote for the t.

MindKoo Soundbar Bluetooth – Nice But

I got this so i can use it with my new tv and it looks awesome with my tv. Is perfectly designed circle sound bar. It sounded great better then my tv 😂.

”everything” sound, connectability. ”nothing”got for bedroom tv ”upgrade for a tin tv sound”.

I don’t think it’s bassey enough but 19yo daughter loves it so 5 stars it isbut. . In my humble opinion i think it’s more suited as a tv soundbar which it is marketed as rather than a music soundbar which is what i usually use them for as my tv’s loud enough on their own.

Used for samsung smart tv, used with tv talktalk box + soundbar, set upfairly easy but no instructions how to set volume on tv or talktalk box to play through soundbar found out from net to turn volume on tv off.

Used for new tv,sits below screen and is hardly noticednow very good sound from tv.

Need to use it more the give a more accurate review the sub woofer could be better but up to now pleased with my purchase and price.

  • Low price and high power in a small space
  • Excellent soundbar, clean and strong.
  • This is a wonderful quality soundbar

But would be better if it powered up when you turn in the tv.

Sound bar for tv, mindkoo built-in subwoofer 2. Very happy with this sound bar. Excellent sound & easy to set up.

Nothing better in the price range.

Very good, this audio equipment, sound quality is very good, i really like this sound effect. The audio installation is also convenient and powerful. Highly recommended to everyone.

It’s a big beast, but excellent performer, very pleased.

 as usual, amazon has been perfect in the delivery of the parcel (i received the parcel 2 days earlier than expected).

I selected the bt button on the remote control (only the first time for pairing) and immediately the smartphone detected me the soundbar. I placed the soundbar next to my 32 ‘led tv and it was in perfect harmony with the design of the tv. The sound experience in my room was intense, powerful, clean. For the price / quality ratio i am extremely satisfied.

Seems to be working well thankyou.

I wanted my 55′ lg oled tv to have better sound. So i bought these hoping it’s better than the speakers the tv already has. Simple installation, and connection. The sound is average, nothing special, not any noticeable bass or other frequencies. Fairly loud if you need it to be. Only issue it has is that it looses connection to the tv and you have to connect it again from the remote, at random times, sometimes 5 times in an hour, sometimes once every 4 hours. The speaker sits right under the tv so it is not a distance problem and the tv is new so i don’t think it’s the tv. Overall, you get what you pay for. Cheap soundbar, cheap quality.

Would highly recommend this product.

Generally very pleased with the product quality and functionality. One piece of expectation management: you won’t get trouser-flapping bass out of it because it simply doesn’t have the enclosure volume. Get a soundbar with a big breeze-block sized subwoofer if that is what you want.

【Soundbar with deep bass】TV Soundbar design with special port tube and 2.1 channel,features 4 full-range high quality drivers (2 * built-in subwoofers + 2 * high quality speakers) deliver impressive TV / movie sound (home theater sound effect).

This is a wonderful quality soundbar, quickly delivered in great condition. I really love the sound quality and the minimalist design on the outside which also has a very satisfying feel to it. The soundbar also has many functions and is easy to connect devices, it also comes with a remote control. Truly reccommend this to anyone.

Great sound especially watching a film ,love it now i got used to the size only problem i have is i can’t bluetooth my alexawith it ,hadto move my alexa to use the wire apart from that wonderfully piece of kit.

Excellent quality for the price paid. Very easy to set up, love that have bluetooth connection to play music through the phone and don’t need to have the tv on. Paired easily with ios and android devices. Excellent sound quality, clean and strong, reasonable depth and bass. It comes with a remote control but also there are buttons on the sound bar to adjust your setting at your convenience. This soundbar is the perfect match for my 43 inch tv, feel that have the cinema at home.

Audio Pro Yamaha NSSW050 Powered Subwoofer – BOOM, BOOM! Simples

Great – but make sure you have the amp to drive it.

Pretty powerful subwoofer and easy to set up. I returned mine though as it has absolutely no configuration options (crossover freq, phase setting etc) and no high level inputs, so given the amp i had chosen, left me with no control over the output of the sub. It ended up sounding very muddy and muffled producing frequencies far higher than it should have done (around 200 – 500 hz and up). Instead i’m swapping it for a sub with more controls.

This sub is very good in looks and performance.

I bought this to use with a mini hi-fi system that has small-ish desktop speakers. I don’t have room for full-size speakers where this system is installed, and the desktop speakers lack bass. The subwoofer corrects that problem, so i get decent bass without speakers taking up a lot of space. The sub itself lives under a desk, because placement isn’t particularly critical. I haven’t done laboratory tests, but the subwoofer sounds pretty good along with the rest of the system. I mostly use it for music, and with its volume setting so that it is only just audible alongside the main speakers. I suspect that for movies an increase in volume would be beneficial. The bass is smooth and relatively subtle at the volume levels i normally use, but it does not distort even at levels that cause objects in the room to shake. The subwoofer is unattractive in appearance, to my eyes. It’s just a featureless black cube — rather like a piece of industrial equipment.

Nice product that makes its presence heard. A new sound experience has now arrived to my listening.

This has transform my yamaha av system, giving rich bass tones. It is very heavy for its size and not too big. I am very pleased i went for the yamaha as it looks great and sounds fantastic.

  • Deeper than deep !
  • A few oddities, but little to complain about at this price
  • Powerful but very limited control.

Love this, not sure about the neighbours mind you, that said, i don’t take the mickey or use it late at night or early in the morning. It really makes such a difference, i have it paired to my yamaha srt10000 and the combo is amazing.

Superb tight deep bass from a small box. Excellent build quility too.

Great subwoofer giving superb bass to my tangent speakers. Very happy by the fact it’s simple to control and only has one button to switch it on and one to control the volume bass. Less time fiddling and more time spent listening to the sound it produces.

YAMAHA HIFI

Yamaha Sound Quality

Yamaha takes its expertise in producing world leading musical instruments and combines it with precision engineering to create superb sound with a true, clear quality.

The History of HiFi Audio Began with Yamaha

It has been 60 years since the Yamaha HiFi Player, the world’s first audio component bearing the “HiFi” name, was released. As a comprehensive musical instrument maker, as a materials and semiconductor manufacturer, and as experts in architectural acoustics and music promotion, Yamaha has always applied its accumulated technology base and experience to the task of producing ever improving audio equipment, forming the sound of each era of Yamaha’s history of innovation from the birth of the Yamaha HiFi player in 1954 to the present.

20cm 8″ Cone Woofer

Sensational bass response that adds significantly to overall listening enjoyment of music and movies.

Advanced YST II for Awesome Deep Bass

Developed by Yamaha, the Advanced YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology II) combines negative-impedance and constant-current principles to drive the speaker cone with even tighter control than the previous version. Using Advanced Negative Impedance Converter (ANIC) circuits, this system dynamically optimizes effective speaker impedance to maintain excellent linearity. This means more stable and accurate low range response, not to mention higher sound quality.

New Twisted Flare Port Produces Clear and Tight Bass

The all-new Twisted Flare Port takes advantage of extensive subwoofer development experience. The flared, gently twisting shape diffuses the vortex of air generated around the edge of the port, creating a smooth flow of air. This reduces extraneous noise not present in the original input signal and provides clear, accurate low frequency reproduction. From special effect sounds in movies to the atmosphere of a live venue, you hear bass that is clear, tight and realistic.

Stylish Addition to Any Room

The gently rounded form with a slanted front surface presents a stylishly elegant appearance. Designed to be unobtrusive, It’s sure to look beautiful in a living room or home theatre room. Offered in black, walnut and white, so you can choose the model that best matches your other speakers.

Good for the price, but is only suitable for medium to small living-rooms. It is designed for quality of listening experience rather than power output.

An excellent addition to my existing hi-fi setup. The extra bass adds an amazing amount of volume (as in 3d presence not loudness) to any music, even classical music and any music that does not use a lot of bass. When the tv/sky box sound is routed through the hi-fi, it helps bring out every detail. The only downside is that it can bring out too much background noise on some programs and movies, particularly in outdoor scenes, so occasionally need to be turned down slightly for those. It is one of yamaha’s cheaper models but i’m not sure you’d get a lot more (in a domestic set up) by getting any of the more expensive versions.

I wasn’t sure at first as i’ve owned kef for a long time – blimey, this thing is deep . It’s subtle when it needs to be and super ridiculous when you’re watching a marvel film.

Notice that the power rating is not clearly stated. This is because it is underpowered – both the sw050 and the sw100 reuse the same class d amplifier from the cheaper older generation sw012. For the 8′ sw050 this is ok although for the 10′ sw100 wouldn’t recommend it.

Unpacked, connected, working. Big sound in a small package, i get a nice foot massage on the really crunchy scenes.

New Twisted Flare Port contributes to clear and tight bass

I have owned this sub for a week, and wow, it had truly transformed my old separates system into something awsome. The speaker was delivered quicker than i expected, well packaged. The instructions were precise and it was very a quick and painless task to connect and setup the speaker. After a week i believe i have now the best set up and may it be music or movies everything has been brought to life in a understated but dramatic statement of intensity. Would recommend to anyone with to enhance their systems.

Fantastic sub, does exactly what i hoped it would do, really adds to overall experience watching movies, love it.

Not as good as i thought it would be.

Check the dimensions, this was much bigger than i expected, but as a result it really fills the room, 8x5m alongside some decent mid and upper frequency speakers. Coax/phono input or optical, both work fine. Plugs directly into the mains. Volume control on the rear too. Had fun finding the right place in the room, and as per some other suggestions don’t try obvious spots, sometimes the best sound can come from corners of the room as we found. The sub is black, wooden, with a fabric speaker grille on one side and the air hole on the other (that’s the technical term right?).

An excellent subwoofer at a reasonable price.

Really really nice subwoofer with a lot of power. It works really nice with my yamaha yas 107 soundbar.

Advanced YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology II)

Great product, solidly built and happy with it but it would be nice to have a light on the front like my pioneer one does so you know when it is active and when on standby. In fact i’m not even sure if it ever does go into standby.

Bigger than what i expected – should have checked the dimensions. However i suppose the compromise is the absolutely amazing sound. Have a yamaha soundbar with built in subwoofer but this has now changed the sound completely.

I’ve learnt a lot about yamaha since i work in music retail and sell their products. Quality and technology is where they excel and even though this is a rather small subwoofer it sure delivers even i our 25×16 extension. Packaging is plain boxed as is common with a lot of their equipment and the item is well presented and built well. A phono cable is required to connect the item to your receiver which i didn’t know (thought it might be terminals). I used wharfedale diamond 9’s and diamond pro’s at the moment with an onkyo network receiver and the quality is great even without the subwoofer. When added though the sound really does change incredibly, with depth not otherwise possible. Great for movies as well, it shakes the floor.

An inexpensive but quality sub-woofer from yamaha which ticks all the boxes. Only one minor quibble, the power indicator light is on the rear of the unit which seems a bit silly as you can not see it. I have inadvertantly left the unit switched on a few times after turning off the tv and amp. Overall i would recommend this unit to anyone wanting a sub.

After using a week i said it’s exellent.

Does what it says on the tin. Sound is excellent – bought for the cinema room and this thing rocks.

This is a wonderful speaker, first it is not too big to look out of place in a typical english living room (size) but big enough to reproduce those low frequency bass sounds. It is simple to use, yes i’m shouting this out, just turn volume to minimum plug in the input cable and power it up then switch on – gently adjust the volume to your preference. Simple, it only has a volume control, which may upset those techy types who need to adjust the frequency response and phase shifting (?) to optimise their perceived quality of sound. This is not designed for outside concerts but for the majority of people who like to feel the explosions in a good film or indeed wish to listen to those outside concerts in the comfort of their own homes (toilet access etc – you know what i mean). The only complaint i’ve had so far is from my wife who asked for the bass to be turned down, apparently it hurts, which to me is a good thing, no not an excuse to annoy her indoors, as it means i can get the bass response from this that i like.
