Sonos SUB – new wireless subwoofer

Sonos SUBClever wireless hi-fi makers Sonos have done it again with their new Sonos SUB. As with their other gear, it fits in easily to any room environment, is a no brainer to set up & use, and sounds damn good too.

Using two class-D digital amplifiers driving two speakers aligned face to face, the Sonos SUB is compact (and pretty funky too with its ‘square doughnut’ shape) but still packs a punch with bass extension down to 25 Hz.

The SUB works with all Sonos amplified components including CONNECT:AMP / ZP120 / ZP100; PLAY:5 / ZonePlayer S:5; PLAY:3. It does not work with the non-amplified Sonos CONNECT / ZP90 / ZP80.

It can be placed upright or laid flat (even under a couch) for discreet placement anywhere. While it connects wirelessly to the main Sonos system (and has a one-button set-up), it does still need mains power.
