Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

A powerful subwoofer to support your other Sonos speakers with deep bass.
Has a unique, eye-catching design and its wireless function works from anywhere in a room (though it does have to be plugged in). It really augments the sound of your Play speakers and the setup is a breeze.
Powerful, potent bass for such a small sub. Excellent extension and impact. Force cancelling design eliminates unwanted vibrations. Solid, inert design. Easy to set up and use.
Powerful, thunderous bass at highest levels. Subtle low-frequency anchoring at more modest volumes. User-controllable bass levels. Attractive design. Can sit vertically or be laid flat. Easy integration into existing Sonos systems.
Sonos Sub is a hard-hitting upgrade to your existing Sonos system. By connecting two subwoofers, you can also achieve even more potent and precise bass.

What reviewers didn't like

Very expensive, especially considering that it isn't a standalone speaker. Setup is challenging.
Its finish doesn't match any other Sonos components and the Sub doesn't work as well with the Connect: Amp. It's expensive and won't work outside of a Sonos system.
Bass a little too thumpy at times. No standard line inputs, i.e. only compatible with Sonos gear.
Expensive. Large. Only works with Sonos speakers, cannot be physically connected to a subwoofer output.
The Sonos sub is easy to set up, but could have had even more adjustment options. The sound is not significantly better than the previous generation.
