Impedance Rating

The Yamaha YST-SW012 is a subwoofer with an impedance rating of 5 ohms. This means that the speaker has low resistance to electrical current, allowing it to produce higher volume levels than speakers with higher impedances. The lower resistivity also allows for more efficient power transfer from amplifiers and receivers, making this subwoofer ideal for use in home theater systems or other audio applications where high sound quality and loudness are desired.

Design And Build Quality

The Yamaha YST-SW012 is a well designed and solidly built subwoofer. It provides an MDF body, which provides excellent acoustic properties while remaining lightweight at 8.5kg/19lbs. The woofer composition of polymer ensures that the sound produced by this unit will be accurate and powerful with minimal distortion or interference from outside sources. Moreover, its vented enclosure design helps to reduce unwanted resonance for even better audio performance overall. In terms of aesthetics, it comes in black color only but has dimensions measuring 29 x 29 x 32 cm / 21 x 19x 22 inches so it can fit into most spaces without taking up too much room visually speaking either way you look at it.
