I have a pair of these subwoofers, and paid AU$1500 each (retail is $2200 in Australia). Do yourself a favour and buy something else. I have an Energy subwoofer that I paid $300 for and are far better than these Soava 900SW Yamaha subs.

The main problem is that they both rattle, even at low volumes. The electronics inside is not designed well and vibrates when you are playing music or even worse during movies. Yamaha Australia's service, or lack of it, has been appalling. Being an Electronic Engineer, I know it is a design flaw, but they insist that I should take these 35 kg subs to their repair shop. Several visits later, each taking over 4 weeks and no improvements.

I also own Soavo 1 and Soavo 3 speakers. It is a shame that the flagship speakers from Yamaha are such disappointment. You will be better off with any other subwoofer even in the sub $200 range.
