I think tuning is about 30 Hz. While the published "16Hz ultra low frequency reproduction" is propably technically correct (1 db is enough), I think this is misleading!:whistling:

Its a nice looking sub but going by the graphs posted above it looses most of its output below 30hz. Thats ok for music but for movies thats no where near good enough.

They go expensive in Europe on the market secondhand so the subs are popular which is good, i beleive it's the name yamaha you pay for and not the performance.
