One Of Three New Products Released In June
2020 alongside the Sonos Arc and Sonos 5.. we’re going to be comparing the Gen 2 with this new Gen 3 telling you what setups. This is best with and answering questions such as which is best to add first the sub or surrounds. For example, there Are a lot of reviews out there for the Sonos sub, but we’ll be answering the questions that we’re always asked by our customers before buying the serb as we think these are things.
We Think Everyone Should Consider Before
spending 699 pounds. If this sounds good please consider subscribing to our channel as we do have a lot of new and exciting content coming soon and by liking this video you’ll also really help us out without further Ado let’s get into the review. The Sonos Subgen 3 is the third iteration of the Sonos subwoofer sold for the same price as the previous generation at 699 and it’s available in a colour choice of gloss black or white. It’s designed to be paired with any Sonos speaker of your choice. Except for the new Sonos move to unlock a new dimension of bass, resulting in deeper immersion and a sound that you can really feel we often get asked is it really worth the extra 699 pounds, particularly when Sonos speakers on their own offer great sound.
We Will Of Course Be Covering This
question later on in the video as well as testing the new Sonos arc with and without the sub first of all there’s very few changes between the design of the Gen 3 with the Gen 2 and the changes are mainly aesthetic and to be honest. They aren’t the most exciting changes We’ve ever seen it’s got a new flat power cable so it shouldn’t curl round or tangle anymore, which was feedback given from the previous generations. They’ve also updated the join button to be more ergonomic, so it’s easier to press and more. In keeping with the newer products in their lineup, What is perhaps more significant is that the internals have also been updated with a new quad-core CPu processor and the latest memory chip which doesn’t mean an awful lot to the end user at the moment, but it’s ready for what sonos intend to do in the future, whatever that may be there’s no sound quality upgrade, so the Gen 3 will sound exactly the same as the Gen 2. .
So If You Have The Sub-Gen 2
already and you’re wondering whether it’s worth the upgrade to the Gen 3. We would say keep hold of your Gen 2 for now at least until there’s something tangible that you can do with the Gen 3 that you can’t do with the Gen 2. only time Time will tell let’s have a closer look at the sub itself, then it must be said. This is a heavy piece of equipment weighing in at 16 kilograms out of the box, but thankfully it’s got these rub these rubber feet to keep it stable on your floor, so it won’t be going anywhere. As with all sonos products.
The Design Is Modern And Fresh And
they actually worked with interior designers to give the best and most timeless aesthetic possible from the sub as they understand it is quite a large piece of equipment, so they needed to design it in such a way so it wouldn’t put people off keeping it on show in their homes. Now. This opening in the middle has been designed this way for a reason as the sub has two force cancelling drivers that are seated opposite each other and that cancels. out vibrations and rattle so the bass is offered without any distortion so that means that you can listen at higher volumes and it won’t flap. Like some other subwoofers do also the sub has been designed in a way that it doesn’t vibrate when you’re listening and this was demonstrated in our previous sub review and we placed a glass of water on the top and it didn’t ripple whatsoever and don’t worry we have double checked it’s the same with this gen 3.
The sub will take over the lowest frequencies in your audio, which enhances the mids and the highs on the speakers. It’s paired with also so the sound is much more detailed and rich. It can achieve a frequency response as low as 25 Hertz, which is close to the lowest possible frequency. A human ear can actually hear which is 20 hertz as it’s.
A Smart Subwoofer The Sub Also
knows which Sonos products that it’s been paired with and it will adjust its sound profile to give you the full Sonos experience, so it’s not just giving you the same bass with every speaker in terms of setup. You need to make sure you’re using the Sonos S2 app and that you’re pairing it with a speaker that’s also on S2. Unfortunately, this sub isn’t compatible with any S1 speakers. So all you do is plug it into mains power and then you tell the Sonos app which speaker you want to pair it to and job done. The benefit of a wi-fi-based subwoofer is that it can actually be wirelessly customized and optimized using the Sonos app.
I Thought Itd Be Cool To Show
you on the Sonos app. What customizations you can do when you first set it up so. fully calibrated for your room so I’ve just added the sub to my new beam. For example, so if you go into the your room settings and then look for sub-audio. There’s a few settings here, so you can actually toggle the sub-on and off completely you’ve also got a sub-level so if you if you wanted to turn you know the maximize the amount of bass from the sub-you can do that in this menu and you can turn it up all the way to plus 15 and minus 15.
And Then In The And Then
at the bottom. You’ve got phase control and all that is is that you can select that between naught degrees and 180 degrees. So if you’ve got any nodes or dead spots in your room, it will reverse the sound waves um so that you’ll you’ll get the maximum. base from your Sonos sub in your room which is quite handy Actually most cases you know you can just use the naught degrees, but it does give you the option if you need to as well. When you’ve completed setup.
You Can Also Adjust The Volume Of The
sub. If you want it to be louder or quieter, but bear in mind if you’re pairing it with a sonos soundbar. You also have night mode if you need it which reduces the impact of the louder sounds so your neighbors are kept happy. Let’s talk about where to position the serp in your room as again. This is a question that often comes up.
The Wireless Communication And The Acoustics Of
the Sonos sub have been designed in such a way that it has the benefit of being non-directional, which gives maximum flexibility as to where you position the serb. This means it’s possible to stand it upright or lay it down flat with no compromises. If you want it completely out of view. You can even put it under the sofa. If you want to make sure you don’t put it in an enclosed cabinet as you won’t get the full effect Though if you live in a terraced house or in an apartment.
Wed Always Recommend Situating The Sub
along a wall that is not connected with a neighbor. If possible to give the best chance of the base being contained within your room or you can you can enable night mode as i’ve mentioned already as you can see in this room we’ve. The sub situated over in the corner there as that’s our preference for aesthetic reasons, but like I said you can really choose anywhere in your room and it won’t impact the performance moving on to our most recommended sonos speakers to use the sub with first of all a sonos Tv speaker, such as a beam or arc would be our number one choice to make up the final 0. 1 in a surround sound setup. The sub is particularly useful for movies as there’s so many different sound effects that you might hear and these are all enhanced when you add a sub into the mix those explosions, helicopter flyovers, speeding cars, etc.

All Sound Much More Pronounced Which Make
a difference with how immersed you are in your movie. Now the challenge of soundbar manufacturers is to ensure that it looks aesthetic enough and slim enough to fit. under your Tv without encroaching into the bottom of the Tv screen. Now Sonos have designed the arc soundbar using a 270 degree elliptical shape, which squeezes the best possible performance from its woofers, but by having a separate subwoofer dedicated to the lower frequencies. This will take movie nights to the next level.
I Would Also Recommend The Sub
with a stereo pair of sonos ones or one sls if you’re using these as a dedicated music setup adding the sub should make a dramatic difference to how your tracks will sound. Although for the regular listener a pair of one or when a cells would definitely do the job on their own. If you’ve got a pair of fives and you’re wondering whether it’s worth adding a sub to it nine times out of ten is probably going to be a bit much particularly as the fives are. extremely capable on their own for bass the only time that I would say it could be worth adding a sub to a pair of fives is if you have a very large room that you maybe use for parties because the sub will help with the volume of the music. When there’s a lot of background noise.
I Also Wouldnt Recommend Adding A Sub To
a single speaker, such as a 1 1 Sl or 5 on its own because the sub is likely to be overpowering for that speaker, so your money would be much better spent adding a second speaker to create a stereo pair. The final setup that I would highly recommend the use of a sonos sonar subway is if you’re installing ceiling speakers maybe in your extension or renovation and you’re powering them with a sonos Amp. The sub will pair wirelessly with the Amp and due to the fact that ceiling speakers can never offer as much bass as a traditional audio setup. The sub can compensate for that allowing you to benefit from the aesthetics of ceiling speakers without worrying about bass limitations. Alternatively, if you’re not willing to spend quite as much on the Sonos sub.
In This Case, The Sonos Amp
does have a subwoofer out anyway, so you can use your own active subwoofer. I’ll just point out that as long as you’re using the sonos amp. It doesn’t matter whether you’re using the sonos ceiling speakers or maybe other brands, such as Kef monitor audio, etc.
