Yamaha YST-SW012 8-Inch Front-Firing Active Subwoofer
Klipsch has always made decent subwoofers, and the KW-100 is no exception. Its simple, no-frills design language is not as bold or flashy as Klipsch's proprietary gold speaker cones, but then a good subwoofer should stay out of the way, and the KW-100 does just that. It delivers the kind of sound most buyers will be expecting from a solid subwoofer: while it digs below 40hz without getting too muddy, most of the emphasis is above 60hz and the KW-100 will give a pleasant touch of warmth to any system. It can be a touch boomy at times, which is important to remember if you want to watch movies or listen to music late at night, especially if you live in an apartment building. If you are interested in buying a complete system, the KW-100 compliments Klipsch's own Icon series very well, but it should serve its purpse well in any midrange home system.
