Sonos’ war on wires continues, adds SUB wireless subwoofer to its arsenal

Sonos SUB wireless subwoofer

Sonos has taken the wraps off its new wireless subwoofer – appropriately known as the Sonos SUB.

Sandwiching two force-cancelling speakers (placed face to face to minimise cabinet rattle), DSP circuitry and a pair of Class-D digital amplifiers into its glossy black frame, the SUB is intended to be a one-stop shop for your bass needs.

Accordingly, setup is simply a matter of plugging the SUB in, switching it on and following some prompts on your Sonos controller. It’s equally happy standing upright – so you can show off that rather swanky design – or tucked away out of sight, lying flat.

Naturally, the SUB will sync up with Sonos’ range of amplified components – though non-amplified components aren’t supported – and can be controlled using the Sonos Controller apps for Android, iPhone, Mac and PC.

The Sonos SUB will be available from 19th June, priced at £600 with a gloss-black finish. If you’re counting your pennies, you could wait until October, when a matte black version will be released, priced at £500. Check out the preview video at the Sonos Blog.
