Fans of Sonos have been waiting for a home theatre subwoofer that costs less than the $749 Sub for a very long time, and it’s now here. A new Sub Mini subwoofer from the company has been released, and the audio equipment maker claims it produces “bold bass for smaller-sized spaces.” It shares the same design as the Sub series but is available in a smaller size.
Sonos states that the Sub Mini is intended for use in small- to medium-sized rooms, while the normal Sub is still best suited for larger rooms. The company suggests pairing the Sub Mini with the Beam or Ray for home theatre audio. The Sub Mini also pairs nicely with Ikea’s Symfonisk products or a single or stereo Sonos One speaker if you’re buying it solely for music.
According to Sonos, the 6-inch woofers in the Sub Mini’s dual force-canceling configuration offer “very deep, dramatic bottom bass while eliminating buzz, rattling, or distortion so you feel more engaged in every scene and song.” To avoid dropouts, Sonos establishes a separate 5GHz wireless link between the soundbar and subwoofer. Similar to the company’s other recent speakers, the Sonos Sub Mini can be added to your system with just a fast tap of your phone on the top of the speaker unit. Further EQ variables such as Bass level can be adjusted through the Sonos app.
