Designed to complement Sonos' existing wireless speakers, including the Play 5 and Play 3, the new sub has been designed with two force-cancelling speakers positioned face to face to avoid cabinet buzz, dual acoustic ports and two Class-D digital amplifiers specially tuned for the hardware.
With digital sound processing (DSP) promising "zero-loss audio quality and energy", Sonos says "you won't just hear the difference Sub makes - you'll feel it even when hidden under a settee.
No pricing or launch date for Australia has been announced. To set it up all you have to do is tune it to the network in the same way that Sonos speakers are added to a network; however, users will have to tweak their desired settings.
Tech Radar in the UK claims it plays nice with all amplified components (Connect Amp, ZonePlayers 120 and 100, the Play: 5 and the Play: 3).
What's more, you can sit it up, lie it down or stick it under the sofa and Sonos says you won't hear any loss in sound or performance. They claim it plays "brilliantly".
