Multiple Orientations

Place it beneath your TV, on a table or console. Or mount it on the wall. Either way, it looks and sounds beautiful.

Not Just Louder. Clearer.

Thin is great for TV screens, but not so great for sound. Playbar to the rescue. With nine amplified speaker drivers—six mid-range and three tweeters—Playbar replaces your TV's built-in speakers with deep, rumbling lows, crystal-clear dialogue, and immersive waves of sound.

What You See Is What You Hear.

Playbar features nine speakers designed in a phased speaker array to deliver “directionality”, creating a wider sound stage. That means if there’s a huge crash on the left side of the screen, you’ll hear it there because the speakers on the left are playing the sound and the speakers on the right are playing the inverse of that sound.

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.
