Small areas usually imply small sound. In case you’re like me and stay in a cramped condominium, there’s simply not lots of room for cumbersome audio system and surround sound systems. A probably upcoming providing from Sonos might be the ticket for offering highly effective audio by a small system.
The product in query is the Sonos Sub Mini. Sonos hasn’t introduced it, and it is not on the audio firm’s web site. Nevertheless, as reported by Android Police yesterday, somebody on the Sonos subreddit reportedly noticed the identify whereas utilizing the Sonos app.
“As I used to be including my second sub to my system, I observed the ‘extra data’ button, clicked it, and was taken to this web page throughout the app,” the Reddit consumer, u/S114HED, posted Saturday, together with this screenshot:
There’s not lots of data there past the Sub Mini being “a smaller, cylindrical subwoofer.” The screenshot does not provide any clues about dimensions, specs, options, pricing, or a launch date.
Sonos’ present subwoofer, the Sub (Gen 3), prices $750, so a smaller possibility might probably convey a cheaper price of entry for a Sonos subwoofer. The oblong prism-like Sub is 15.8×15.3×6.2 inches, or 402×389×158 mm (W×H× D) and 36.3 lbs (16 kg).
There are smaller subwoofers than what Sonos presently presents, in fact. For instance, the BlueSound Pulse Sub+ ($750 MSRP) is eighteen×11.8×5.7 inches (457×300×146 mm) and 18.3 lbs (8.3 kg), the Elac Muro Series Slim Subwoofer stays trim at 4.8×15.2×14.2 inches and 17.2 kilos ($1,000 MSRP). And though the Monoprice SSW-8 takes up extra quantity than the Sub (Gen 3), it is notably brief (Monoprice markets it as having the ability to match beneath a TV stand), measuring 21.3×6.2×15.7 inches (540×158×400 mm, weight not specified).
As Android Police famous, CES, the largest client tech present within the US, is in January, so we could hear extra about Sonos’ small subwoofer then. However because the firm hasn’t mentioned something concerning the Sub Mini, it is also potential that the product won’t ever hit cabinets and was listed on the app by accident. For the small residence dwellers amongst us in search of extra choices, let’s hope the subwoofer materializes.
