Unbelievably good piece of kit, expensive butYou get what you pay for. I was the weight of the box with the quality of the build. Easy to set up and link with my Sonos system, and the sound quality has to be heard to be believed.

I always thought the playbar had a decent amount of bass, never really thought it lacking and still don’t but the sub adds a whole new level of audio pleasure. Find it balances nicely with the play bar and really complements all music and telly


Awesome just what I needed to complete my sonos system.


My latest purchase, Gen 2 White Subwoofer, got to me via free Next-Day delivery and has been absolutely brilliant when paired with the PlayBar! Simply amazing sound!


What a terrific sound l dont write reviews but this is definitely like being at the cinema and for some strange reason the sound is all around the room, l stood next to the sub where u would think l know its coming from here but its everywhere, great buy it if u can afford it,

Just upgraded to the Sonos Playbase and felt it was missing something. The sub certainly adds that missing piece to the jigsaw and have had to turn the base down slightly from the default setting. Very easy to control from the Sonos controller app. Smiles all round.


Boom! Makes the playbar and 2 play ones into a movie theatre.

Bought the Sonos sub to add to an existing system comprising of a Sonos soundbar and x2 play 1's. It added so much depth to music and added a new depth to movies. Bass you can feel right down to your bones and no vibration or rattle!!! It is a must for Sonos lovers.


No so great at low volumes.......but once you turn it up...WOW!

Anthony Allanson

Sonos Sub is just the best addition to the Sonos range whether adding to Play 1 or ones or adding to playbar & surrounds.. It does subtle if needed and it also does room shake if you want it to, and wow does this thing pack a punch. Its full controllable through the app to tune to your needs. I have neighbours so keep it low late on in the evenings but when I know they are out for the day I can crank it up and really enjoy films and music. You won't regret purchasing the sub. It allows the rest of your speakers to focus on mid and high sounds so the clarity steps up a level too!


Great sound usual sonos quality


Amazing sound upgrade to the beam a 2 play1s ,, sounds so good !


Absolutely outstanding bass with no distortion it a great addition to and sonos beam really addsalot of depth. It was a toss up between Bose 700 system with sub and this I listened to both before making a choice and I must say the sonos out performs the dose in every way also the bose is terrible to set up and the bose app in my opinion is useless

Fantastic sound makes a big difference


Great edition to my sonos playbar makes a huge difference to the overall sound with the sub taking away bass duties to free up the playbar to do what it does best, YouTube music videos come to life know. If I’m honest I was reluctant to spend the amount I did even when it was on at special price I’m glad I did.


Excellent supplier. Quality of goods and service not to be faulted.


Initial impressions very good. Still tweaking settings

Matt Donaldson Donaldson

A fantastic addition to my Sonos collection bring my home to 13 in total. I have the play bar, beam, a play 5 and 3 play 3s of two are my rears speakers and 6 play 1s and now I am complete my my sub

Steven Kimmet

Brilliant device . Completes my sonos collection


Wasn’t sure how this Sonos amp would turn out and actually sound... oh boy this this is mega! 10/10


Yes it is expensive & yes it is a luxury item/purchase. I have been pondering buying one for a year plus now & watched the price dip, missed it, then climb. Finally took the plunge, when they agreed to match the recent Sonos direct offer. Basically rolling the price back to where it was when I first started looking them. My word, what a piece of kit? Makes an unbelievable difference to the sound! I thought the playbar was good, then couldn't believe the difference adding a pair of play 1's. But this is the tip of the iceberg. The depth the sub adds is immense if not incredible. It truly can only be described as soul shaking. Anyone contemplating adding one on, don't delay, just do it; you won't regret the spend. Even if you don't have a 5.1 system for the TV, just the depth it adds to audio alone is worth it. I added mine to my bedroom play 3 when it first arrived, as the lounge wasn't ready (busy decorating) difference again beggers belief.


Wow Did take me a bit to decide However perfect choice Amazing sound quailty First explosion made me jump off my seat lol


Was humming and harring about getting sub because the base on playbase was very good, but glad I did. The first explosion on a film I was watching made my wife jump up off the settee, the room actually vibrated so had to turn base volume on sub down. There quite expensive but I'm glad I purchased it. Dave


took a long time before ready pass over the kind of money required to purchase a Sonos sub, my regret is not the spending of the cash, it is not buying it sooner !


I've been after a Sonos Sub for some time now. The impending price rise forced my hand really but the addition to my playbar and 2 play ones it now completes the 5.1 set and the difference is quite significant. Still think it's expensive but it is quality and you do get what you pay for.


Brilliant piece of kit, awesome performance, easy to set up and just works. Best price available online from Smart Home Sounds and first class service.

Robert Lindsay

Added the sonos sub to home system that includes a playbar, a play 5, two play 3 and two play 1 units. Fantastic sound throughout the house and particularly in the lounge that includes the sub, playbar and two play 1 speakers. expensive but worth the cost.

Experience better immersion

The Sub can be added to any Sonos speaker (expect Sonos Move*) to transform your listening experience and create a more impressive sound.

Pair it with a Sonos Beam, Playbar or Playbase to create a 3.1 Sonos home cinema setup. Take this one step further and add 2x Sonos One or One SL as surround sound rears for the ultimate immersive experience for your favourite films or TV shows.

Bold bass without the vibration

Bold bass without the vibration

The Sonos Sub adds soul-shaking, dynamic bass by converting low frequencies into deep, rich bass.

Experience the rumble in your favourite songs and the crashes and bangs in your favourite films.

Internally, the cabinet houses two force-cancelling speakers (powered by separate Class-D amplifiers) which are positioned face-to-face to eliminate vibration. This ensures zero rattle or buzz and instead projects all the energy into the room.

Wireless connection & simple set up

Wireless connection & simple set up

Adding the Sonos Sub to another Sonos speaker is quick and simple. With no complicated wiring, simply plug in and press the connect button on the back of the Sub and add to your system via the Sonos app.

The app will automatically adjust your audio settings to balance your Sub with your speaker set-up for a flawlessly optimised listening experience.

Sleek design to fit any room

Sonos SUB FAQs

Sonos SUB FAQs

Q - Can you add the Sub at any stage?

A - Yes. The Sub can be added at any time to any Sonos product (except the Sonos Move).

Q - Should I add a Sub to my Sonos Soundbar?

A - Though it's not essential, this is one of our top recommendations for the Sub to really get the most out of your surround sound set up.

Q - Is it worth adding to a Sonos Play:5?

A - As an honest retailer, we would say 9 times out of 10, this can be a slight overkill for most people. A stereo pair of 2x Play:5 would provide enough bass for most customers.

Q - Does it make a difference where I place the Sub?

A - The Sub is non-directional so where you place it in a room won't impact the sound. As long as it has enough room to push air out, you can place the Sub anywhere. E.g under a sofa but not in an enclosed cabinet.

Q - Can I add the Sub to a non-Sonos system?

A - The Sub will not connect to a third-party sound bar. If you're using third-party speakers with a Sonos Amp you will be able to connect this with the Sub.
