Download the Sonos app from the app store if you don't already have it. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system. See Setup for more information.
Note: After Sub is paired with a Sonos speaker, you won’t see it displayed separately in your system. Any changes you make to the speaker it's paired with, like volume, mute, or music selection, will also affect Sub.
If you’re placing Sub horizontally on a floor, you can attach permanent felt feet (purchased separately) to protect your floor. If you’re putting it on a rug or using it vertically, no need to adhere the felt feet.
Note: The felt feet are not removable—a strong adhesive will keep them permanently attached to Sub.
To adjust Sub's settings, go to > System and select your Sub.
Toggle On or Off to turn the sound from Sub on and off.
Use the slider to increase or decrease volume. (You can use this setting to match the subwoofer level to the level of your main speakers.)
Choose 0° or 180° to set the phase control for your Sonos Sub or third-party subwoofer (flip if you don't hear enough bass in your usual listening position).
When a room with a Sonos Sub is tuned using Trueplay, phase control is set and can't be changed unless you disable Trueplay.
Resets all Sub audio settings to their default values (0).
You can easily change the Sonos speaker your sub is paired with.
If you’re moving it to a new room, wait for the status light to stop flashing after you plug the sub back in.
You can easily connect a second Sub to your Sonos system.
Note: At least one Sub must be a Sub (Gen 3). If the button on the side is round instead of square, it's a Sub (Gen 3). You cannot pair a Sub Mini with a Sub.
