We have learned a lot about the Sony STR DH750 in our previous post where we talked about the best speakers to match this amazing and affordable AV receiver with. If you are interested you can check out our Sony STR-DH750 Speakers article to find out more. As for this post, we will be looking into which subwoofers would be the ideal match for the Sony STR DH750 AVR.
We understand the bass performance of the STR DH750 can be impactful and does pack a punch in the midbass region, so having two active subwoofers connected to this Sony AVR will be recommended. Especially if you are a home theater enthusiast and tend to turn up the bass whenever you watch action, Sci-Fi, or movies with very deep bass soundtracks. By having two subwoofers at your disposal, you will have more headroom to play with and this will also protect your subs from bottoming out.
The even distribution of the bass provided by two subwoofers will allow everyone in the room to enjoy the movie equally. As mentioned, the Sony STR DH750 can pack a wallop when it comes to bass reproductions. If you only use one sub, some areas of the room may not have the same low-end impact or have too much of it. When the bass is overwhelming, it will drown out the higher frequencies, and you may miss hearing other sonic details of the content you are watching.
Another advantage of integrating two subwoofers will be that you can cover a bigger area. This will be important if your HT room is large in size, but for Sony STR DH750 owners who have small rooms, having one powered sub would suffice. The size and power of the subwoofer also matter when it comes to delivering optimal bass performance.
We suggest you take some time to consider what you want from a subwoofer. The type of bass performance you are looking for. Once you know your preferences and requirements then please check out the list of the best subwoofers to partner up with your Sony STR DH750 AV receiver. You might want to work out your budget first before proceeding especially when you are planning to purchase 2 subwoofers.

Best Subwoofers for Sony STR DH750
SVS PB-1000 Pro is the latest iteration of SVS Sound’s entry-level ported subwoofer and will be an amazing match with the Sony STR DH750. The PB-1000 Pro is certainly one of the very best subwoofers within this price range and has up to 820+ Watts of peak power to prove it. Not to mention, the ported sub is capable of reaching down to 17Hz bass extension which not many entry-level subs are able to do it. Having two SVS PB-1000 Pros integrated into the Sony STR DH750 would satisfy most bass fanatics.
SVS sound doesn’t just make exceptional ported subwoofers, they also build excellent sealed cabinet subs such as the SVS SB-1000 Pro. It may not go as deep into the bass extension as the SVS PB-1000 Pro but the low-end performance is tighter and slightly more accurate. This is an ideal choice for Sony STR DH750 owners who listen to a lot of music and doesn’t like the bass performance to be overly exaggerated. The SVS SB-1000 Pro is modestly priced and is well worth your time to have a look.
If you are searching for a sealed subwoofer but find SVS SB-1000 Pro too big for your room. You might want to check out the Kanto Sub8. This is an 8-inch sealed cabinet subwoofer and will be compact enough to fit into most HT rooms. The Kanto Sub8 is not as powerful as the SVS SB-1000 Pro but it is more affordable though. It has elegant and minimalistic aesthetics which will make it fit nicely into your home decor. The bass performance is taut and it has decent low-end impacts.
The Jamo S810 is another subwoofer suitable for Sony STR DH750 users who have limited floor space or just don’t want the sub to stand out too much. It may have a 10-inch woofer but it is actually slimmer than the Kanto Sub8. The slim profile allows you to place it almost anywhere inside your room without taking up much floor space. You can also hide it in the corners of your room. The overall bass performance is worth the price that the Jamo S810 is asking for which is rather affordable as well.
The SVS PB-2000 Pro is one of the best subwoofers to go with your Sony STR DH750 AV receiver. It is already capable of delivering awesome bass performances on its own and produces subterranean low frequencies with authority. Now imagine having two of them playing inside your home theater room, you will be feeling immense sonic energy. SVS PB-2000 Pro has plenty of power to spare, up to 1500+ Watts to be exact. It goes below 20Hz and will be incredible for movie playbacks.
The Klipsch R-12SW is also a 12″ ported subwoofer like the SVS PB-2000 Pro. It is less powerful though but more affordable than the PB-2000 Pro. The price point of the Klipsch R-12SW is only one of the reasons why this ported sub is highly rated. Klipsch R-12SW bass performance is worth every single penny spent on it. The Klipsch subwoofer is capable of delivering clean and deep bass frequencies without exaggeration. It does however slightly soften the impact and midbass punch of the Sony STR DH750 AVR which can be a good thing for some listeners.
Is not really a must to go for two active subwoofers, the decision ultimately lies with you but the advantages of having two subs at your disposal do make it worth the investment. You can choose a few of these subwoofers listed here and arrange an audition with them. Start testing with a single subwoofer then followed by a dual setup. From there, you will be able to tell whether you prefer a single or dual subwoofers’ bass performance.
