Just when Sonos couldn’t possible get any better they one-up themselves by releasing the Sonos SUB – a wireless subwoofer designed to link up with other Sonos products (such as the Play 3 and Play 5) on the Sonos network. Measuring only 15.8 x 6.2 x 15 inches, and weighing in at only 36.3 pounds, placement is simple and unlike conventional subwoofers the Sonos SUB can be used either standing upright or laying down flat (which allows for out-of-sight placement such as under a bed or sofa). However, for maximum impact we recommend placing the subwoofer in a corner or close to a boundary.
As with other Sonos devices, the Sub can be controlled from a computer, smartphone or tablet through free Sonos Controller applications for Android, iPad, iPhone Mac or PC, and set up is as simple as pressing a button.
The Sonos Sub has two force-cancelling speakers positioned face-to-face, dual acoustic ports, two Class-D digital amplifiers (tuned for the cabinet and speakers), and all filter settings, active equalization, and time alignment are done digitally through state of the art DSP (Digital Signal Processing) circuitry. Add it all up and what you get is solid bass down to 25Hz!!!
Our opinion – this amazingly versatile wireless sub ROCKS!
