Consumers love Sonos because—among many other things—it allows them to easily add brilliant sound to any room, big or small. Whether it’s the main family media room, a secondary bedroom, or patio, Sonos speakers and subwoofers represent effortless listening for the homeowner and are incredibly simple to set up and install. Here, we spotlight Sonos Sub Mini and Sonos by Sonance Architectural and Outdoor speakers, which are an ideal way to round out a home entertainment setup.
Add Bold Bass in more Rooms with Sub Mini
Sub Mini is a new product in the Sonos lineup that has already had a great response from consumers. Sub Mini can be paired with a Sonos soundbar (like Sonos Beam or Ray) or speaker (such as a Sonos Era 100) to enhance streaming experiences with minimal setup headaches.
Introduced in September 2022, Sub Mini deepens enjoyment of TV, music, and more with bold and balanced bass. It’s ideal for smaller rooms and can be placed anywhere in the space. Building on the award-winning design of the original Sonos Sub, Sub Mini connects wirelessly and delivers rich, clear low-end bass in a more compact, cylindrical design. Available in black and white, the design is popular for its almost sculptural appearance, which feels like a natural addition to the space.
Under the Hood of Sub Mini
How does the Sub Mini deliver all that powerful bass in a compact form factor? Dual custom woofers and advanced digital processing generate deep, dynamic low end with no buzz or rattle, helping the audience feel more immersed in the sound. Within the acoustically sealed cabinet, both woofers face inward to create a force-canceling effect that neutralizes distortion. Meanwhile, advanced digital signal processing maximizes bass response and reproduces the full-toned bass expected from a much larger subwoofer for a richer, more powerful sound experience. Sub Mini features Sonos’ Trueplay, which smartly adjusts the bass for the product’s surroundings.
Designed to Disappear: Sonos by Sonance Architectural Speakers
Where the Sub Mini brings bold design, the Sonos by Sonance Architectural line recedes into the background like a high-performance chameleon. A few years ago, Sonos partnered with Sonance—one of the premiere architectural speaker companies in the country (also an HTA Supporting Brand)—to produce this innovative collection of installed passive speakers for indoor and outdoor applications.
The architectural In-Ceiling and In-Wall Speakers disappear into any space while providing clear sound, even coverage, high-quality performance, and ease of use. The meticulously engineered grilles can be painted to match walls and ceilings for a sound system that doesn't compromise home design.
Aside from the speakers’ unobtrusive aesthetic, this collaboration marks the first time that architectural sound has been engineered for a specific amplifier. By connecting to Sonos Amp (up to three pairs of Sonos by Sonance Architectural speakers can be powered by a single Amp), users can experience all the benefits of the Sonos ecosystem via every speaker. This includes harnessing Sonos’ easy-to-use app that works with nearly 140 streaming services—Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud, Pandora, SiriusXM…you name it.
How Sonos Architectural Speakers Benefit the Consumer
While the design of these speakers is decidedly camouflage, the sound is no wallflower. All Sonos Architectural speakers have dynamic bass processing to enhance low frequencies for a richer listening experience. Sonance’s years of experience building speakers that deliver high performance in a low-profile design is front and center in the sound quality of Sonos’ architectural speaker line.
Additionally, these speakers offer the ability to dial in the sound swiftly and with little fanfare. When paired with Sonos Amp, the In-Ceiling and In-Wall speakers’ unique hardware signature unlocks Trueplay, which smartly optimizes the EQ to compensate for the room’s size, construction and furnishings.
“When we installed a set of Sonos by Sonance In-Wall Speakers powered by a Sonos Amp, I thought they sounded about the same as comparably priced in-walls from other manufacturers we had used in the past. Then we turned on the custom DSP setting, and WOW! You would’ve thought we added a subwoofer to the room, for the amount of improvement noted in the low end!” says Dave Dryland from Gibson Sound and Vision.
The Sonos by Sonance Architectural line also includes Outdoor Speakers that allow consumers to take the party outside. These speakers also benefit from Sonance’s long-standing history in outdoor audio, offering full, detailed sound in the backyard or patio all year-round while withstanding humidity, water, salt spray, heat, UV rays, and freezing temperatures. Also, like the in-wall and in-ceiling models, the outdoor speakers are used with Sonos Amp to deliver all the benefits of the wireless multiroom Sonos experience. As a side note, the Outdoor speakers are now available in black, in addition to white!
