By RS Staff Published: April 10, 2017 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 Yamaha Corporation of America (YCA) has launched the NS-SW050 and NS-SW100 powered subwoofers, with the goal of advancing the state of immersive home theater and realistic sound reproduction. Its latest home theater audio components, the NS-SW050 and NS-SW100 subwoofers both incorporate Yamaha proprietary Twisted Flare Port technology, an innovation that aims to revolutionize speaker design. “Although our Yamaha AV receivers are the heart of the home theater system, the NS-SW050 and NS-SW100 powered subwoofers bring the heartbeat to songs and movies with a noticeable twist that helps generate deep, yet tight realistic bass sound,” said Robert Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “These attractively designed subwoofers with Twisted Flare Ports really bring life to a home theater system.” The NS-SW050 and NS-SW100 subwoofers each offer 50 watts of output power. The NS-SW100 includes a 10-inch cone and features a 25-180Hz frequency response. The NS-SW050 has an 8-inch cone and a 28-200Hz frequency response. The NS-SW050 measures 11.5 x 11.5 x 13.375 inches and weighs 18.7 pounds. The NS-SW100 measures 13.875 x 13.875 x 16.125 inches and weighs 26.5 pounds. Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology II in both models helps enhance the control of the subwoofers’ drivers to improve accuracy and stability in low-range response and to thoroughly engage listeners. Together with the Twisted Flare Port technology, these innovative speaker technologies present a clean, smooth flow of air from the port that minimizes extraneous noise down to the deepest tones. The Yamaha NS-SW050 ($169.99 MSRP) and NS-SW100 ($199.99 MSRP) are available now from authorized Yamaha retailers.
