Sonos is easily our favorite app enabled audio solution. And today they announce a new device to make it even better. Adding to the Sonos Play:3 and Play:5, we now have the SONOSSUB. As you may have guessed, a subwoofer. This booming beast looks amazing. As you'd expect it syncs with your Sonos system allowing you to control it from the Sonos Controller app.
“Like all of our products, our new SUB is designed from the inside out by Sonos,” says John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos, Inc. “SUB has all the hallmarks of a great Sonos product: Clear, deep, all-digital sound, an incredibly simple setup, and beautiful design you’ll be proud to show off in your home.”
The SONOSSUB will be available in mid-June with a glossy black finish for $699. A matte black finish model will be $100 less and be available later in the year.
A few more details below.
Features of the Sonos SUB include:
* Two force-cancelling speakers positioned face-to-face: All the sound and energy from the music comes through loud and clear, and none of it is lost in cabinet buzz or rattle.
* All digital sound: All filter settings, active equalization and time alignment are done digitally through state-of-the-art DSP (Digital Signal Processing) circuitry for zero-loss audio quality and energy.
* Dual acoustic ports: Tuned to maximize the acoustic volume of the SUB and enhance bass resonance.
Powering the SUB are two state of the art Class-D digital amplifiers that have been perfectly tuned to match the speakers and acoustic architecture. The cabinet is made from proprietary resin to create acoustically dead walls with maximum internal air volume. The SUB’s specific dimensions are 15.8 x 6.2 x 15in. (402 x 158 x 380mm) with a weight of 36.3 lbs (16kgs). Full SUB specifications, details and a video can be found at www.sonos.com/SUB.
