Cons

Auto power saver feature is too quick to turn the subwoofer off, requires fairly high volume level to turn back on again.

Very heavy (at about 50 lbs.) and large compared to similar competing models.

Edit

 

The Sony SA-W3800 is a standalone, 15” performance subwoofer designed to work alongside a surround-sound system. Enclosed in a mica-reinforced cellular woofer case, the SA-W3800 uses Motion Feed Back Technology with an advanced bass-reflex design to output up to 200W of power alongside a wide 20-200Hz frequency range. Compared to its peers, this subwoofer is somewhat heavy, weighing in at 50 lbs. However, it outperforms them all in power, frequency, and versatility—making it ideal for a high-powered home-theater system. The only drawback to the Sony SA-W3800 is its expensive price.
