How is Sub (Gen 3) different from the previous generations?
Sub (Gen 3) features updated internal technology, including increased memory and a more powerful CPU, and finishes, including a new join button.
Does Sub (Gen 3) work with the Sonos S1 Controller?

What is a wireless subwoofer?
A wireless subwoofer connects to other speakers over your WiFi network. Sub does not have a battery and therefore requires AC power.
Can I hardwire Sub to my soundbar or speaker?
No. You must connect Sub to other Sonos speakers and components via WiFi.
Do I need Sub to create a 5.1 surround sound?
Yes. Sub is the “.1” element of the 5.1 system that takes over all low frequency sound.
Do I have to set Sub up at the same time as my other speakers?
No. The Sonos sound system is designed to be modular. You can add Sub at any time.
Can I connect Sub to a third-party soundbar?
No. Sub will only connect to Sonos home cinema.
Can I use Sub with my passive or wired speakers?
Can I use Sub with my passive or wired speakers? If you power your speakers with Amp, you will be able to connect Sub as part of your Sonos sound system.
Does laying Sub on its side affect the sound quality?
Lower frequencies are omnidirectional, so Sub’s orientation does not affect or alter the sound. This means the direction or orientation of the speaker does not significantly affect the sound. However, if the Sub is placed in a too-confined space it could affect the dispersion of the sound. Trial and error is always an option.
Can I have two Subs in the same room?
Yes. Your Sonos home theatre setup can connect up to two Subs as long as one of them is Sub (Gen 3). Learn more
