If you’ve been thinking about updating your home sound system to be compatible with your iPad, Sonos may be what you are looking for. Not only can you connect multiple speakers throughout your house and play different music, or the same song in various rooms, but coming this June 19, you’ll be able to kick it up a notch with their new Sonos SUB wireless subwoofer.
The SUB’s 15 x 6 x 15 sleek black design can go anywhere and has an easy one-button set up that might just set off the seismograph in your area if you aren’t careful. Just plug in the SUB and hit the button. It will wirelessly connect to your other Sonos components.
The subwoofers are powered by two Class-D digital amplifiers that have been tuned to match the speakers and acoustic architecture. The 36-pound cabinet is made from proprietary resin, which creates acoustically dead walls with maximum internal air volume.
Features of the Sonos SUB include:
- Two force-cancelling speakers positioned face-to-face: All the sound and energy from the music comes through loud and clear, and none of it its lost in cabinet buzz or rattle.
- All digital sound: All filter settings, active equalization and time alignment are done digitally through state-of-the-art DSP (Digital Signal Processing) circuitry for zero-loss audio quality and energy.
- Dual acoustic ports: Tuned to maximize the acoustic volume of the SUB and enhance bass resonance.
Sonos’ sound systems can be controlled with the free Sonos Controller for iPad. This app allows you to connect your speakers to your iTunes account, as well as other music streaming services and stream music to every room in the house. You can even play different songs in different rooms.
The SUB will be available in high-gloss black finish starting June 19 for suggested retail price of $699. The matte black finish model will be available for $566 in October. You can find a dealer in your area by visiting the company’s store locator.
