ADMIN
Push your Sonos music system to the limit with the addition of the SUB wireless subwoofer. This compact unit will add a completely new layer of richness to your listening with deep, rumbling bass that you'll feel, as well as hear. Engineered for easy setup and vibration free sound, you’ll be enjoying premium, fuss-free sound straight out of the box.

Anti-distortion speakers
Dual force-cancelling speakers - positioned face to face - direct the sound and force of the music for clearer listening, with no cabinet buzz or rattle.

Easy pairing
No wiring. No programming. Press one button, follow the simple prompts and the system automatically adjusts audio settings to perfectly balance your SUB and the paired Sonos system for a flawlessly optimised, whole-room listening experience.

Flexible positioning
Because it’s wireless and designed to perform perfectly, whether positioned horizontally or vertically, you can put the SUB anywhere you want in the room - even lying flat under a couch. Using the TRUEPLAY feature in the Sonos App, you can custom tune this speaker for finely-balanced sound enrichments based on speaker positioning, even when it’s incorporated in a full Sonos home cinema setup.

Dual amps
Two Class-D digital amplifiers have been professionally tuned to complement the speakers and acoustic architecture. Dual acoustic ports create better output flow purer sound.

Extreme detail
Frequency response down to 25Hz delivers smoother bass to unlock every detail of your audio.

Lossless listening
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) controls filter settings, active equalisation and timing for truly zero-loss listening.

SUB works with all Sonos amplified components, including: CONNECT: AMP/ZP120/ZP100, PLAY:5/ZonePlayer S:5, PLAY:3, PLAY:1, PLAYBAR, SONOS ONE, BEAM, PLAYBASE. Does not work with the non-amplified Sonos CONNECT/ZP90/ZP80.

It is expensive for what it is but for those who are already invested in the Sonos ecosystem there's no other way to just add a sub to it hence the high price. You can buy the Sonos Amp then add your own third party sub but that's even more expensive as the Amp is about £500 on it's own.
Fantastic price. If anyone has bought recently at Richer Sounds call them on 0333 900 0065 and they will price match. I’m just off the phone with them and got my refund without a problem. Did not price beat as not 6 year warranty with John Lewis. Thanks again OP for alerting me to this deal. Nearly £90 refund.

I have received a price match for mine bought 2 weeks ago. Call 0333 900 0065 if you have a problem.
Just purchased one of these to complete my 5.1 when it was £465 last week. Cracking bit of kit. Thought I was satisfied with the Bass levels my playbase was sending out til I added this.
I don’t think it’s been cheaper anytime else so if you’re tempted, nows then time to jump.
Hot
Should I be worried about the neighbours?

What's this like when using nightmode or low volumes?
Fantastic bit of kit not cheap but premium quality 18kg of shiny black bassy goodness 😁
Just bought one, you get a 2yr warranty with John Lewis, I have a lot of Sonos speakers built up from over the years but the sub woofer has always been too expensive to justify in my eyes, this deal has made it more affordable and enabled me to complete my system, looking forward to seeing some action films with sound bar and a couple of play 1 speakers all linked for surround sound effect. THANKS!

This will complete my 5.1 too. I’ve had my sub since 1st week in December unopened and Richer Sounds refunded me the difference. Fantastic service.

Was going to link this to my Sonos soundbar in front of the TV and bring into the room a couple of play 1 speakers for rear sound, any idea what the resulting sound will be like? I have clicked and collecting from a Waitrose tomorrow, can't wait :-)

You can dial down the volume and night mode does help.

I have mine set to -3, but it does depend on its placement in the room. Putting it up against the neighbour side wall is obviously not the best idea (for any sub).
Great prize!! Got mine for £699 last year

Imo the rears make the most difference. Just make sure you have your TV/source setup correctly so you get proper dolby 5.1 (when available) and not just dolby 2.0 upmixed to 5.1.

You can check the audio in source under the 'about my system' section of the app.

If you watch netflix, prime, and most HD sky channels you should get proper 5.1

I purchased another one of these from the previous deal posted (same price) excellent bits of kit. Both subtle and if you want will easily loosen your roof tiles!

Will this be the case with the Sonos Beam as well? Got it paired with two rear Ikea Sonos speakers atm

I have 2 sonos ones acting as surrounds and a playbase under the tv. Now obvs the sub has been added too. The switching between music and tv is seamless and the fact the whole system is wireless is an added bonus.

I have a beam and 2 x Sonos One gen2 and the rear speakers really add enjoyment to tv and movies. My sub is waiting for Christmas Day to open and setup.

It competes the whole cinema experience imo. Whilst it isn’t atmos the sound is fabulous. Fortunately the sub has its own level in the sonos app so if you have neighbours or want to crank it up or down you can do

Yes. Check your settings on your TV, and also your connected devices (sky, xbox etc). You want to make sure they are all set to dolby digital and not stereo or PCM.

Play something you know has 5.1 soundtrack (e.g. a film on Netflix) and then go check what it says under 'about my system' in the app. If it says dolby digital 5.1 you have it set up correctly

All correct. Just don’t select Dolby Digital plus. It’s not compatible.

Only matched for me as John Lewis doesn’t have 6yr guarantee.

You dont. You buy a different sub with a sub out.

Nightmode is brilliant. Really reduces the bass and increases vocals and overall clarity
rosco12317/12/2019 11:40

All correct. Just don’t select Dolby Digital plus. It’s not compatible.


All good advice, it’s definitely worth checking the “about my system” on the app to ensure 5.1.

If it’s plugged directly into the tv, the tv may not support pass through from sky etc to the sound bar.
also worth noting that on Sky, the optical audio needs setting to Dolby digital if you’re using that connection.
I have a full setup, Playbar, Sub & 2 x Play 1’s... I don’t find the sub all that punchy, it’s a nice addition & it’s set on +2. You lot all worried about the neighbours, how loud are you listening?!? or is mine not setup right

£545... typo?
Want this a lot but having read loads of reviews etc. It will 100% annoy neighbours. Not worth falling out over it (:I. Even in nightmode and volumes low.

Have you done trueplay setup? Mine sounds really weak with it turned off, so could be that.
