What is a wireless subwoofer?
A wireless subwoofer connects to other speakers over your WiFi network. Sub does not have a battery and therefore requires AC power.
Can I hardwire Sub to my soundbar or speaker?
No. You must connect Sub to other Sonos speakers and components via WiFi.
Do I need Sub to create a 5.1 surround sound?
Yes. Sub is the “.1” element of the 5.1 system that takes over all low frequency sound.
Do I have to set Sub up at the same time as my other speakers?
No. The Sonos sound system is designed to be modular. You can add Sub at any time.
Can I connect Sub to a third-party soundbar?
No. Sub will only connect to Sonos home cinema.
Can I use Sub with my passive or wired speakers?
If you power your speakers with Amp, you will be able to connect Sub as part of your Sonos sound system.
Does laying Sub on its side affect the sound quality?
Lower frequencies are omnidirectional, so Sub's orientation does not affect or alter the sound. This means the direction or orientation of the speaker does not significantly affect the sound. However, if the Sub is placed in a too-confined space it could affect the dispersion of the sound. Trial and error is always an option.
I have Sonos speakers in various rooms of my home. Will placing Sub in the centre of my home improve the bass of my entire sound system?
Sub pairs with speakers in a particular room. For example, you could pair Sub with two Play:5 speakers in your bedroom or connect it to Beam to create a 3.1 home cinema system in your living room. Walls create a natural barrier to sound dispersion, so pairing Sub with speakers in other rooms would result in imbalanced sound, with lower frequencies playing in one part of your home and higher frequencies in another.
