After getting my Sonos Beam last month, the next logical thing to get is the Sonos Sub.

Sonos Sub is in its third generation now. It was refreshed back in May 2020.

I bought the Sonos Sub (Gen 3) from Lazada for S$1,039.

The usual retail price is S$1,149. During the 6/6 Great Singapore Sale (GSS), they drop the price by S$10 to S$1,139.

After deducting the shop voucher of S$40, Lazada bonus voucher of S$40, Lazada voucher of S$10, and bank voucher of S$10, I ended up with S$100 off the price of S$1,139 to S$1,039.

The Sonos Sub measures 389 x 402 x 158 mm and weighs a hefty 16 kg.

I am not a fan of the glossy finish of the Sonos Sub because it is a fingerprint magnet, and scratches will be easily visible on it. Because of this, Sonos even provide a cleaning cloth as part of the packaging. I wish they could follow the Sonos Beam design, which is in matte.

Since the Sonos Sub is a wireless subwoofer, there is only one port: the 10/100 Mbps ethernet port and one button: join button.

The power socket and ethernet port are located at the bottom of the Sonos Sub. You will need to tidy the cable passing through the bottom. If not, your Sonos Sub will be unstable as it rests on the cable instead of on the floor.

Like all Sonos products, the ethernet port is there to give you an option to wire it up to your network if your wi-fi is unstable.

Sonos Sub has two Class-D digital amplifiers and two force-canceling drivers facing inwards for powerful bass. It supports frequency response as low as 25 Hz.

Coming from a non-audiophile, you can hear definitely the difference with and without a Sonos Sub. With Sonos Sub, the bass feels thumpy, and you can your whole body can feel the bass.

If you have a lonely Sonos Beam or Sonos Arc, I highly recommend getting the Sonos Sub to keep it company.
