      Yes, its a premium. The reviews weren’t kidding. The sub is amazing. The wireless is very good. No dropping off at all. No pauses. Totally in sync with bar. You can feel the action in movies such as “Jurassic Park.” I’m also an avid “Overwatch” player. It’s been good for that too. The packaging for it is “GRADE A.” You know what is nice that this American company does? They include 4 felt pads for the bottom of the subwoofer Incase you have hardwood floor. I thought “Wow that’s nice.” That new smell comes out once opened. All materials are epic. It does come with a cloth. Even the quick start guides...... I wanted to fold back neatly..... as if I had collector cards or something. The look of this sub is absolutely beautiful. It’s sturdy. You can actually sometimes spot the vibrations inside. I find super cool :) I tested the “Disney” movie “Moana” on both Playbar & Sub combo. Absolutely mind-blowing. Every detail from her foot touching the sand.... To the crumbling of the rocks..... The singing was perfect. No flaw was found at all during my test. Also switched over to “Dolby Vision” via “Apple TV 4K.” Flawless. No weird sounds occurred. “PS4 Pro” sounded great. “Nintendo Switch” sounded great. Hoping to get “Trueplay” support to iPhone 8 Plus soon. It’s such a new phone so that’s ok. Still recommend the sub. It adds that extra touch to action packed movies.

      It's expensive. You've already spent a small fortune. You're wife or husband is probably telling you about the trip to wherever that you could have went on instead of buying all your sonos products. Don't listen. Instead, buy this sub. I started with a play 5. Loved it. Paired it with my Samsung tv via the audio jack and was impressed with the sound. I then bought another play 5 and a sonos soundbar. Controlling the volume (via soundbar) with my Apple TV 4 remote was convenient especially for my wife. No fiddling with the sonos app. The soundbar is fantastic. I figured with two play 5's in stereo to compliment the soundbar, my setup would satiate my sonos thirst. Negative. My soul ached for more bass, 5.1 surround sound and a churro. I settled for the first two. I figured the sonos bass would give me what my setup lacked but the thing costs a grip. After reading a ton of reviews with others whom had the same concern I decided to take the plunge. I couldn't be happier. The bass is deep, no rattle and it takes movies and music to the next level. I now hear bass in movies that I never knew was there before. It really feels like you are in the movie theatre. If you crank it up you can feel it reverberate through your body. Two play 5's for surround sound is like having a Ferrari but only driving it around the block with a school zone along the way. If I had a do-over I would have purchased the bass and soundbar first. Then I would have bought two play 1's for surround. Again, Sonos is expensive but the setup could not be easier, there are no wires to deal with, portability is a huge plus and the sound is phenomenal for all but the pickiest of audiophiles. The bass is probably my favorite sonos purchase which is good because now I'm broke.

      I have a playbase, sub, and 2 ones (with Alexa). I advise setting these up one at a time with the sonos app first and second with the Alexa app, so you can name them for later identification. Ex. Set up a playbase or sound bar first in sonos app, then set it up in the Alexa app. Continuing back and forth between apps until you set them all up. I haven't owned the playbar, but the sound from the playbase alone is enough for surround sound. We played a surround sound test on it and it sounds amazing. It even has enough bass that you probably wouldn't need a sub, unless you prefer a lot of bass. The sub bass is ridiculous. I live in a house and we have it only half way up because it is so strong. Pros: Alexa enabled Amazing sound quality Appealing design Plays music by voice (through Alexa) or the sonos app from amazon, spotify, and a lot more. You can adjust music and surround sound to be softer or louder than other speakers. The glitches can be updated to fix them. Cons: Couldn't get pandora to link Doesn't have all Alexa functioning All speakers decrease volume when talking to any Amazon's Alexa devices that are linked in your Alexa app. Setup is a little frustrating. If not setup properly, speakers will intermittently cut out. Have to buy special mounts for rear speakers (expensive). The speakers themselves are quite expensive. The playbase doesn't look right under a larger tv. (I set mine under my entertainment center). Can't setup more than 4 speakers (base/bar, sub, and 2 rear speakers) The app could be better with the layout.

      Excellent addition to my Play:1 Stereo Pair

      I have a stereo pair of the Sonos Play:1 both at home and at my office. I was hoping for a little extra bass out of my home system and looked into a subwoofer for the Sonos. I was pretty surprised at the price, which is $699 considering I paid $199 for each of the Play:1 speakers when I bought them originally. After reading so many positive reviews and seeing on how the resale value seems pretty high I considered it a fairly low risk purchase. After setting it up I was frankly disappointed until I found the EQ settings in the software which lets me turn up the bass. I turned up the bass in the EQ just a little and am very impressed with the results. I can’t believe how good this little set sounds now. Two Play:1 speakers setup as a pair and the Sub. I didn’t even turn these up to past about 25% and the sound is great. I’m just using it to play my Apple Music playlists. I’m not some audiophile or anything. I’m becoming temped to maybe try the Play:5 at this point. Mostly because for the first time I feel like I’ve got a pretty darn good system going here. I’ve tried “highly rated” speakers in the past only to question what others liked about them. This is the first speaker system I actually like.

      Sonos SUB brings the lows

      I purchased the SUB along with the Sonos Playbar and added to two existing Play1’s to create a surround system for my tv and living room. Set up was relatively easy and quick. The app walked you through the process very effectively. I did start w the Playbar then added the SUB followed by the Play1’s. The app offers decent control for the sound set up. It allows you to add more or less SUB to your surround mix. At its highest setting the SUB actually is very powerful to the point it’s too much. So plenty of low-end Bass is available if wanted. The trick is finding the sweet spot where normal tv viewing and movies both sound good. At its highest level, Bass is too much for normal tv viewing. But nice that you have it if needed for louder movies or music to fill your house. The finish is a high gloss black. Which I’m torn on whether I like or not. Pet hair does cling to it very easily. Sonos DOES give you a microfiber cloth to keep the fingerprints and dust off. Nice touch. Settings in the app for music EQ and tv EQ separately is a nice touch and a convenient feature. The Playbar does offer an acceptable about of bass, however the SUB brings the rumble and feel of the bass which makes movies and music more enjoyable.

      I love my Sonos system. I just bought a PlayBar and Play base (wanted to decide which one was best for me), a PlaySub, and two Play:1 speakers for surrounds. I don't have a lot of space where it all went, so I love that the pieces don't overpower the room looks-wise. And the sound is surprising very good. I did end up going with the PlayBar instead of the PlayBase. The PlayBase's treble was too much. Tinny isn't quite the right word, but it was a bit piercing. The PlayBar's treble is more natural sounding. I don't have it wall mounted, it just sits on the cabinet below the TV and works just fine that way. The price is worth it, I think. You aren't going to get as good sound as you could get from a true home theater system, but the compromise of not having to have wires running across your room and having a cleaner look is worth it. I also really love the integration with Google Play and Spotify. Apparently it used to have integration with Audible, but it stopped working in 2015. I can find a statement that says Audible and Sonos are committed to getting it working by the end of summer 2018, so hopefully soon it will be back up. All in all, I recommend the pieces, except the PlayBase.

      Amazing subwoofer with great range! Worth every $

      Connecting my SONOS Sub to the Playbar was pretty easy. Once I opened the box there were additional instructions that helped show how to sync it up. A few clicks on the Sub (plus a few minutes for the software download) and it was synced. My living room is longer vs wider and the bass carries throughout the house. The Best Buy audio specialist turned the system up while we were there and it really didn't make a difference because the room is open. However, hearing the difference in my home was incredible. My living room has a Playbar, sub, and two Play 1s. If the price is turning you away, you won't be disappointed. I wanted a subwoofer but I got a full range sound system now! It comes in a nice protective foam and sewn cover. Additionally it has felt feet if you choose to lay it on its side configuration and a cloth to wipe it down. Yes it is expensive but you'll love the range of the woofers.

      Great Sounding Subwoofer, small technical issues

      I purchased this subwoofer and the associated Sonos Soundbar to replace a very old but great sounding Denon system I have had for about 10 years. The old tower speakers, cables, amplifier and head unit were cluttering up my new living room and I wanted a change. They look great and sound awesome! The only real issue that I had with them was during setup. The subwoofer is required to pair with the Soundbar through the Sonos app and it MUST use a WiFi hotspot/access point/router setup that operates on the 5ghz spectrum. Now most new WiFi antennas do, however for reasons outside the scope of this review I preferred not to have a 5 Ghz WiFi antenna. Long story short, I found out that in addition to the $1,500 I spent on the speakers I then needed to spend another $150 on a new wireless setup for this half of my house. In the end it works great and sounds awesome, but there isn't any documentation that states the subwoofer needs to run on 5 Ghz. It should also be noted that all of the other items that Sonos sells can run on either 2.4 Ghz or 5 Ghz.
