Unlike most of Yamaha's previous subwoofers that lacked the gusto to hang with the big boys, their new flagship NS-SW1000 means business. The NS-SW1000 features a powerful 1,000-watt amplifier and high excursion 12" driver with a double ferrite magnet and cast frame. The NS-SW1000 has an impressive black gloss finish, reminiscent of a Yamaha grand piano, which provides a touch of elegance to any living space. Does it sound as good as it looks, and can it really thump? Based on the hardware inside, we'd venture to guess a big Yes and Yes. We just may have to put one through our rigorous testing procedure to find out for sure.\n\n\n\nYamaha NS-SW1000 Subwoofer Preview\n\nDo you think this Yammie has what it takes to be a serious contender for those serious about bass?
