The Yamaha YAS-103BL Surround Soundbar offers dynamic sound quality from a compact speaker design. This soundbar is equipped with dual 2.5" front drivers and dual 3" built-in subwoofers to deliver a full-range sound. These drivers are powered by a digital amplifier that delivers up to 120W of power. With a system frequency response of 50 Hz - 22 kHz, this soundbar was engineered to handle mid-bass and high-frequencies alike. The built-in bass reflex port further contributes to the soundbar's robust bass response.
The YAS-103BL features Bluetooth 2.1 for wireless streaming from other Bluetooth enabled devices such as smartphones and tablets. A digital coaxial and two digital optical connections are also on-board for wired audio connections; an optical cable is included with the soundbar. This soundbar features two pre-installed feet for table or stand mounting, but you do have the option of using the included mounting template and spacers for mounting the YAS-103BL to a wall.
Dual Built-in Subwoofers
The YAS-103 is equipped with two full-range drivers on the front and two down-firing subwoofers integrated discreetly into the bottom of the bar. Together with Yamaha's Advanced Bass Extension Processing (surround mode only), the soundbar is engineered to deliver powerful bass from a compact design.
Bass Reflex Port
The subwoofer drivers, employing large magnets and large-diameter voice coils, work in combination with the large-volume cabinet of the soundbar and bass reflex ports to deliver robust bass response. The bass reflex ports have a straight shape and proper length, as well as ducts shaped like trumpet bells, which reduces wind noise for better sound clarity.
