Sonos Sub Mini Review – Compact Subwoofer

on

Price & Availability

As part of its home theatre system, Sonos has long included a wireless subwoofer, a hefty, powerful product that costs a staggering R17,999. It is a bit of a stretch for somebody with a smaller space or a tighter budget. Bass enthusiasts now have a new option thanks to Sonos: the reported Sub Mini is real and costs far less than its larger sibling at R10,999.

The Sonos Sub is currently available for preorder and will be widely accessible on October 6th. It is available in black or white. 

Design

The Sub Mini is a cylindrical speaker with an air-moving "centre tunnel" cutout. It has a diameter of roughly 230mm and weighs 6,35 kg, which isn't particularly light but is more than 9 kg less than the Sonos Sub. It can be paired with any amplified Sonos speaker, excluding portable speakers like the Move and Roam, so you can use it with both home theatre soundbars like the Beam and Ray or the Sonos One or Five. (Sonos suggests using the premium Arc soundbar with the full-sized Sub, but there are no technological barriers preventing you from using it with the Sub Mini.) 

Configuration, Features & Connectivity

The Sub Mini has a center tunnel, two 6-inch force-cancelling woofers, two class-D digital amplifiers, a 5GHz wireless connection, and a 10/100 ethernet jack for those who prefer to hardwire their speakers. The Sub Mini is configured using the Sonos mobile app, just like all other Sonos products. From there, you tell the app which room the sub is in and couple it with a soundbar or speaker system.

Once the Sub Mini is configured, you may use Trueplay to adjust it so that the sound of your system is appropriately balanced, just like with other Sonos speakers. Since Trueplay uses the device's microphone to listen to the environment and adjust audio quality based on the acoustics of your space, you'll need an iOS device that is compatible with it. Since we have always had great experiences with Trueplay, we recommend taking this action if you own an iPhone or iPad.

The Verdict

Anyone with a smaller space or setup should also be able to appreciate it; for instance, we've always needed a little more bass from our pair of Sonos One speakers, but the larger Sub would be way too much. On the other hand, the Sub Mini might be ideal.
