If you are looking for room filling bass - this might not be your best choice. But if you are looking for a subwoofer to give good tight base at moderate volumes paired with smaller speakers, this does the job.
Although the single rca phono plug is a very simple hookup, (And this unit comes with that cord for ease of installation) I have a simple small Sony amp that it is hooked to. No subwoofer hookup capability for that amp. No problem. There are tons of ways to hook it up. I used a Y adapter (single male rca phono plug into stereo (red/right ~ white/left) female ends). Then, here on Amazon, I bought two male rca phono plugs to bare wire leads which I plugged into the rear of my amp at speakers "B" My main speakers ("A") are Polk Audio bookshelf type (very nice) and the amp is set to use both speakers A and B. Thus, all treble / mid-range and some bass go to the Polk speakers and the bass is brought through on the B speaker (subwoofer - both left and right channels). Simple set up for extraordinary sound. LOTS of volume. Lots of bass that can be tailored to your taste by the volume button on the rear of the Yamaha subwoofer. Get the SOUND you want and THUMP you want at an extraordinary price and unmatchable quality. My experience with audio equipment: Nakamichi / JBL / Bose / Yamaha / Klipch / Polk Audio / Sony / Kenwood / Panasonic / JVC / Sharp / Teac / Sansui / Altec-Lansing among others. Why the disparity? Not all manufacturers make all the difference types of equipment that you want in your playground :)
You can adjust the volume or intensity or whatever you wanna call it, from the knob at the rear. This is a powered sub but only has the Rca connection for a signal. Overall, I think this would work preferably in a small to medium room.
