Sonos reveals SUB wireless subwoofer

New wireless subwoofer puts bass in your face. Or under your bed. Or wherever you want to put it, really

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.
