    Hi. If memory serves me correctly there is no such thing as the SAWM 50. Sony had two models: the SAWM20 (8 inch) and SAWM 40 (12 inch).
    They have since been discontinued, replaced with the newer designs (including the newer 500).
    Some say that it is actually a step back in terms of performance, but I wouldn't know from personal experience.
    I do however recall the older wm40 having a better lower extension range as per the specs.
    I had the 8 inch model before getting an SVS.
    Hope this helps.


    PS. You should still be able to find a WM40 online for quite an attractive price.
