Soul-shaking sound.

  • Listen down deep

    Fills an entire room with thick layers of deep, bottomless sound that lets you hear and feel every chord, kick, splash and roll. You won’t just hear the difference our wireless subwoofer makes — you’ll feel it in your bones.

  • All sound, zero vibration

    Two force-cancelling speaker drivers positioned face-to-face means all the sound and energy from the music comes through loud and clear, and none of it is lost in cabinet buzz or rattle.

  • One-button setup

    No wiring. No programming. Press one button, follow the simple prompts on your Controller and the system automatically adjusts audio settings to perfectly balance your SUB and the paired Sonos component for a flawlessly optimised, whole-room listening experience.

  • Wherever you want it

    Because it’s wireless and designed to perform perfectly, whether positioned horizontally or vertically, you can put the SUB anywhere you want in the room — even lying flat under a couch.

Access all your music

  • Pre-loaded Internet radio stations, free of charge

        On setting up I found the sub was not working.I contacted Sonos by phone, and they did a remote test. This did show a fault, so they issued me with authorisation for a replacement unit immediately.
        Good service.

                  I bought this as part of the 5.1 home cinema sound bar and play 1 bundle. The sub is very powerful and gives great depth to the movie soundtrack, you can feel the room move during action films.

                        Great sound although it did take a few days to reach its depth potential. After bedding in, I'm delighted.

                        I changed my router and it was easy to reset the entire system.
                        I have a beautiful mono block valve system with £20K speakers. OK it's not perhaps up there but pretty near and so much easier with all the convenience of the App.

It's great-you take it out of its packaging, plug in the power, program your preferences through the app on your phone and voilà--it works. It's awesome and I highly recommend it. Great work Sonos-and great music apps to subscribe to. Really pleased-go on, do it!

                                  Since purchasing the sonos system I've discontinued my tv package with sky. We just don't watch enough tv. I have a particular ear for sound and sonos hits the nail on the head with its system. Friends have said I'm crazy to spend that sort of money! It's worth every penny. Worth more than my car.! My partner and 7year old love it. Would be nice to see sonos possibly doing some pa equipment ( wireless).
                                  Currently using 3 play 1s and a sub.

                                    Originally added this sub to a pair of Play:5 gen2 speakers. The bass is excellent from the Play:5's but the sub adds a whole new level of listening pleasure and experience. I have a keen ear for high quality playback and find the soundstage when adding the sub becomes far fuller and richer. The crossover between each component is excellent, thus allowing the play:5's to concentrate on mid and high frequency reproduction.

                                    Having later purchased a Playbar I would find it very difficult to listen to the Playbar without the addition of a sub. Although audio quality is good from the bar it is not outstanding. The addition of a sub (in my humble opinion) is a necessaity and again transforms the entire soundstage. To complete the system I have also added a pair of Play:1's as rear surround.

                                    All in all and excellent system and I would thoroughly recommend. Be prepared to part with a significant amount of cash to achieve a complete set-up!

                                      If anyone is thinking of buying any of the sonos products, do it! Don't worry about doing it, don't worry about spending the money as the sonos is worth every penny. I used to be a Bose supporter but wanted a wireless system originally torn but I went to listen to both systems and Bose had nothing on Sonos.

                                                            Questions?

                                                            1. Do I need a BOOST?

                                                              Use a BOOST if you’re worried about your home WiFi performance.

                                                              Connecting a Sonos unit to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Any player or a BOOST can make this hard-wired connection. A dedicated Sonos network is ideal when your WiFi isn’t reliable in your home.

                                                            2. Where does the music come from?

                                                              The music on Sonos comes from your favourite music streaming services, your personal music library and Internet radio stations from around the world. Access all your music within the Main Menu of the Sonos App.

                                                            3. Do you make an outdoor speaker?

                                                              No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.

                                                            4. Will Sonos work with my existing equipment?

                                                              Already have a Stereo? Use the CONNECT.

                                                              The CONNECT is designed specifically to integrate with an external amplifier/receiver, and bring Sonos functionality to a third party system. Once you have a CONNECT hooked up to your stereo system, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                              Have a pair of speakers? The CONNECT:AMP is all you need.

                                                              If you have existing wired speakers that are not currently driven by amplifier, you can use a CONNECT:AMP to bring Sonos functionality to your speakers. Once you wire your speakers to a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                            5. Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

                                                              PLAYBAR is the only soundbar that delivers outstanding Hi-Fi Sound for your TV and is a complete Wireless HiFi System that plays all the music on earth. It is simple to set-up, control and expand throughout your home. With only an optical cable connecting PLAYBAR to your TV, you can control it with your regular TV remote or with the free Sonos apps on iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

                                                              PLAYBAR is the core piece in a Sonos home theatre solution. If you want dramatically deeper bass, you can add our wireless SUB. If you're looking for surround sound, you can use two PLAY:1s or two PLAY:3s as wireless rear surrounds.

                                                            6. Can I connect more than 2 speakers to the CONNECT:AMP?

                                                              The CONNECT:AMP is designed for a single pair of speakers - it is a stereo amplifier, right and left channel. However, if your speakers are rated at 8 ohms, you can wire up to 2 pairs, or 4 speakers, to one CONNECT:AMP - you just won’t have independent control between those two pairs of speakers, in terms of volume and music selection.  ×

                                                              The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.

                                                            8. Which speaker is right for my room?

                                                              All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:

                                                              • Want deeper bass
                                                              • Want more power
                                                              • Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode

                                                            9. How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?

                                                              While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:

                                                              • Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
                                                              • Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
