While Sonos is now facing stiffer competition in the soundbar and wireless home theatre system market than ever before, the American firm can still be counted on to deliver the goods. As such, we’re willing to hear (pun intended) the brand out when it claims that its new wireless subwoofer – the Sonos Sub Mini – “sets a new standard in its category for powerful, balanced bass.”

Taking everything that made the Sonos Sub such a winner and adapting it into a reduced form factor, the Sub Mini was developed to deliver a clear, full-bodied low end, while offering the smaller footprint that comes with its cylindrical build. According to Sonos, whether you’re into movies, music, or gaming, the Sub Mini will enhance your experience by utilising dual custom woofers and advanced processing to generate a deep, dynamic low end. Both woofers face inward to create a force-cancelling effect that’s designed to neutralise buzz, rattle and distortion.
By using advanced digital signal processing, Sonos claims to have been able to reproduce the full-toned low frequencies you’d expect from a larger unit. Doing this enables the Sub Mini to reduce the burden on paired speakers like the Sonos Beam and Ray soundbars or One and One SL wireless units.
According to Maxime Bouvat-Merlin, SVP for Hardware and Operations at Sonos, customers have grown more focused on the quality of what they watch and like content creators and platforms, hardware developers need to adapt accordingly: “Sub Mini is a welcome addition to the Sonos family, rounding out our home theatre product line-up so listeners can experience cinema quality sound that makes them feel like the main character – or player – in their favourite content.”
The Sonos Sub Mini will be available in black and white finishes from October 6 and will set you back AUD$699. If you already have one of the aforementioned compatible Sonos products and are looking to add a little extra kick to your system, the Sub Mini might just fit the bill.
