Yamaha Reveals Two New Subs with Twisted Flare Port Technology

By RS Staff November 22,2013




Yamaha has introduced two new subwoofers, the 10-inch, 250-watt NS-SW300 and 8-inch, 130-watt NS-SW200, designed for bass response in home audio systems.

The new NS-SW300 and NS-SW200 models integrate Yamaha’s exclusive Twisted Flare Port technology that diffuses the vortex of air generated around the port to reduce extraneous noise. The result is deep, rich low frequency sound, according to the company.

The subwoofers also employ Yamaha’s Advanced YST II technology, which combines negative-impedance and constant-current principles to drive the speaker cone in a more linear motion for tighter control. The high-efficiency amplifiers deliver stable power output while minimizing power consumption and heat production.

“The combination of Twisted Flare Port and Advanced YST II technologies place our NS-SW300 and NS-SW200 subwoofers amongst the best-in-class in terms of sound quality, performance and efficiency,” said Bob Goedken, general manager, Yamaha Corporation of America, AV Division. “In addition, the elegant piano finish cabinets of these subs add an attractive complement to the esthetics of any room.”

The Yamaha NS-SW300 and NS-SW200 subwoofers will be available in December for MSRPs of $549.95 and $449.95, respectively.
