Sonos introduced its latest wireless subwoofer Sub Mini, which is significantly smaller, lighter, and more affordable than the third-generation Sonos Sub. Two woofers should reach frequencies of up to 25 Hz, but the performance is much lower than that of the larger model.
At 6.35 kilograms, the Sonos Sob Mini weighs less than half as much as the third-generation Sonos Sub, the much more compact housing should make it easier to place the subwoofer in your living room. As expected, the subwoofer can be combined wirelessly with all current Sonos soundbars and speakers, but the manufacturer recommends a combination with smaller speakers.
Although the two inward-facing woofers reach frequencies of up to 25 Hz, the Sonos Sub achieves three to four times the volume, making it better suited for large living rooms or in combination with more powerful speakers. Another limitation is that only one Sub Mini can be integrated into a home theater, while it is possible to fit several of the subs into a setup.
The Sonos Sub Mini communicates with the Sonos sound system over a dedicated 5GHz connection, which is designed to eliminate interference and lag. The setup is almost automatic via the Sonos app, which can also be used to change the sound with an equalizer and adjust the volume of the subwoofer concerning the other speakers.
