Sonos Announces Sub Mini, Can Be Paired With AirPlay-Enabled Sonos Speakers

Following a leak earlier this year, Sonos today announced the Sub Mini, a new wireless subwoofer with a more compact design and lower price than the full-size Sonos Sub. Sonos said the Sub Mini will be available globally starting October 6, with pricing set at $429 in the United States, compared to $749 for the full-size Sub.

Sonos says the Sub Mini features advanced digital signal processing that "maximizes bass response and reproduces the full-toned low frequencies expected from a much larger subwoofer." The subwoofer can be paired with AirPlay-enabled Sonos speakers and sound bars like the Beam, Ray, and One via Wi-Fi for a complete home theater experience.

Using the Sonos app for iPhone or iPad, users can easily add the Sub Mini to their Sonos system. With a supported iOS device, Sonos says Trueplay tuning technology "adapts the bass for the unique acoustics of the room so it never sounds harsh, muddy, or flat," even if the Sub Mini is placed next to a wall in a room.

Design wise, the Sub Mini has a cylindrical shape and is available in matte black or white. The subwoofer is equipped with dual inward-facing six-inch woofers and two Class-D digital amplifiers, along with dual ARM Cortex processors and a 10/100 Ethernet port.

Does it only match with Airplay speakers or the old Sonos speakers too? This article makes it sound like it only works with the newer ones
It will match, but it depends on how old, I have older speakers (original Ones) with newer speakers on the same network. I am definitely getting this for my smaller living room with hardwood floor. Looking forward to richer bass in that room.

I have an Arc + two Sonos one as rear speaker. I'm not sure, should I buy the sub 3 oder mini?
The Arc is Sonos' Home Theater solution vs the Beam which is intended for smaller spaces or rooms. I have the same set up as you (Arc + 2 Sonos One's) and have a Sub 3 paired to it. If price isn't a factor, I love this set up as the Sub fully compliments the rather lackluster low end response that the Arc alone pumps out.

That said, the Beam has incredible bass response (better than the Arc for it's size) for whatever that's worth. Cheers!
