Sonos Sub Mini pairs excellently with smaller soundbars as the company has now unveiled a new subwoofer that is designed to accompany the Ray or Beam.
Sonos Sub Mini Pairs Excellently With Smaller Soundbars
The Sub Mini has now been unveiled by Sonos. It is designed to partner with the more affordable soundbars of the company, the Beam and Ray specifically.
The 12-inch Sub Mini will feature dual 6-inch woofers that will be opposing each other in a bid to stop the unit from moving around when placed on the floor. The company, Sonos says that it offers a similar extension to the much larger sub at a claimed 25Hz.
The center tunnel is crafted to “maximize bass while nodding to the design of the iconic Sonos Sub.” If you don’t understand what this means, here is a translation for you: “If you have kids, they’re going to put things in there.” And most especially as the Sub Mini vaguely bares a similar resemblance to a fancy trash can.
The Sub Mini Pairs With Supported Sonos Speakers
You should however know that the Sub Mini pairs with supported Sonos speakers making use of 5GHz wireless and also you can use it in conjunction with such Sonos ecosystem features as Sonos Voice or with the many of supported music services and platforms.
The model now is the second subwoofer in the line after the long-running Sub ($749), which is now in its third iteration. It’s however stunning to think now, but when the original Sonos Sub was announced back in 2012, the Playbar of the company had not even been released. Instead, the Sub however was tipped as a great partner for the Play:5.
Sonos Has Released A Whole Set Of New Speakers and Soundbars in the Past 10 Years
And in the past 10 years, Sonos has released a whole set of new speakers and soundbars, and the existing Sub should partner with them all easily. Yet it was however the debut of the latest Ray ($279) and Beam Gen 2 ($449) speakers that led to a cheaper option. The Sub Mini makes perfect sense with the similarly priced Beam, and I know that many users are looking forward to testing how the sub boosts bass performance for that particular Dolby Atmos-capable speaker.
The Sub Mini May Yet Be Cheaper Than the Sub at $429
And while the Sub Mini may yet be cheaper than the Sub at $429, it is still not that cheap. For this very kind of money, you can get yourself a home theater subwoofer from the likes of Klipsch and SVS. It is however more affordable when compared ot the entry-level Bose, the $499 Bass Module 500. The Sub Mini will be available from October 6 for those who are curious.
