It also features a unique design and is easy to set up. For another high quality speaker, take a look at our review of the Nano HiFi NH1 speaker.

Pros
  • Wireless
  • Easy to set up
  • Connects to any Sonos system
Cons
  • Slightly expensive

Performance

The Sonos SUB works by using two speaker drivers that are placed inside the square box. These drivers face each other to cancel out vibrations and rattle. The SUB can reach a low frequency response of around 25Hz, which equates to great bass. It features two Class D amplifiers and dual acoustic ports that are perfectly tuned. The Sonos app lets you adjust the equalizer settings, while the SUB can also automatically tune audio settings to match with connected Sonos speakers. For more bass, the BIC America F12 12-Inch 475-Watt Front Firing Powered Subwoofer would be a better buy.

Design

The design of the Sonos SUB is very unique and uses a sculptural shape. The cabinet consists of two inward facing speakers that help eliminate vibrations. Due to the unique shape of the SUB, it can be used both in an upright position, or laying down. The SUB Sonos has developed may earn it the award for versatility and ease of use. To connect it with another Sonos system, the company has provided a button and an LED indicator. If you prefer boxy minimal subwoofers, then you should try the Polk Audio PSW505 12″ Powered Subwoofer.

Value

The Sonos SUB is an expensive piece of hardware that offers incredible wireless features and sound quality. Pair it with other Sonos speakers such as the Sonos Beam, Sonos One, and the Sonos Play, and you have yourself a complete home theatre setup. The SUB also supports connectivity with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. It comes with the Trueplay software, which can tune the SUB to the acoustics of a certain room. This requires an iOS device and the Sonos app. If you want value for money, the Polk Audio PSW10 10″ Powered Subwoofer is definitely better.

Sonos Sub Review Wrap Up

One of the most important features of the Sonos SUB is its wireless connectivity. You can move it around, take it with you, and connect to other Sonos speakers without cables. It is also very easy to set up. However, most Sonos systems are expensive, and this one is too. If budget isn’t a problem, then the Sonos SUB is definitely a good buy, especially if you own other Sonos products.
