Fill Any Room

Place Your TV Right On Top

Playbase's sleek, low-profile design practically disappears beneath your TV.

Expands With You

Playbase is part of the Sonos sound system, so you can easily add more speakers to fill every room with sound.

Premium Sound

Backed by ten custom-built drivers, Playbase delivers rich, cinematic sound for all your movies, TV shows, sports, and music.

Speech Enhancement

Playbase delivers crisp, clear dialogue. Need even more clarity? Turn on Speech Enhancement.

Night Sound

Watching late at night and don’t want to disturb the whole house? Turn on Night Sound.

Rock Solid Support

Playbase securely supports TVs up to 77 lbs (35 kg). Which covers just about any TV that comes with its own stand.

What’s On Your TV Is Only As Good As What Your TV Is On

Ten amplified internal drivers–six mid-range, three tweeters, and one woofer–replace the limited output of your TV's built-in speakers with deeper booms, crystal clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.

An Off-The-Wall Approach To Better TV Sound

Typical soundbars work best when wall-mounted directly below a TV. Truth is, most TVs end up on stands and furniture – exactly what Playbase was created for. Its low profile design practically disappears beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with epic home theater audio.

Connect Your Sonos To Any Amazon Echo Device

With an Amazon Echo or Dot, you can use your voice to play and control songs, playlists, radio stations, podcasts and more.

Add Surround Sound Without Wires

Create a home theater system when you wirelessly connect a pair of rear speakers and a Sub.

The Wireless Subwoofer For Your Sonos System
Premium Sound

Two force-canceling speaker drivers positioned face-to-face for deeper, richer sound and zero cabinet buzz or rattle.

Unique Design

Everything, including the Sub’s unique “O” shape, is designed to maximize sound quality and look beautiful in your home.

Feel The Bass

Two custom-designed woofers deliver amazing amounts of highly-detailed, dynamic bass.

Multiple Orientations

Stand it tall or lay it flat. Either way, Sub brings out the bottomless bass you desire.

Everything Sounds Better With Sub

When you pair a Sub with any Sonos speaker, you’ll hear parts of your music that you wouldn’t hear otherwise. Sub does all the heavy lifting required to deliver the low, low frequencies, letting your other speakers focus on perfecting the mid and high-range frequencies. You won’t just hear the difference. You’ll feel it.

Zero Vibration

The problem with moving all that air to create bass is it makes most subwoofers shake and rattle. Not Sub. We positioned the drivers on opposite sides of the enclosure, face to face, to cancel out the force of all that vibration. Rich, detailed bass is all you’ll hear.

The Wireless Home Sound System That Gets Better Over Time

Easily connect Sonos speakers in different rooms over WiFi to create a home sound system that brings every room and everyone together. Regular software updates means your product is constantly improving.
