Sonos has unveiled a compact subwoofer called the Sub Mini, and it’s designed for small and medium-sized rooms.

The device measures just 12-inches in height and 9-inches in diameter, making it more compact than typical subwoofers. Its cylindrical shape also gives it a unique appearance compared to other subwoofers, which are typically square-shaped and bland looking.

According to Sonos, the design was chosen to allow the Sub Mini to blend in with a typical home aesthetic – not to mention that it matches the Sonos One and Sonos’ overall minimalist aesthetic too.

Despite its relatively compact size, the Sub Mini packs in dual 6-inch woofers that face inwards to reduce distortion and enhance bass.

The Sonos Sub Mini features a center tunnel design that moves air in a way that maximizes the bass output. This unique design promises to produce a balanced sound, the kind that you would expect from a much larger subwoofer. It has also been engineered to neutralize rattle and distortion, which is something that even the most expensive subwoofers tend to struggle with. 

And of course, the Sub Mini is wireless – it utilizes a 5GHz Wi-Fi connection to provide users with a seamless connectivity experience.

The Sonos app course allows for advanced audio management, including Trueplay tuning technology that measures the room’s acoustics and optimizes the sound to match the space.

Sonos recommends that users pair the Sub Mini with their Sonos Beam, Ray, One, One SL, or Sonos soundbar.
