Sonos users can now boost the bass in a room by adding a second subwoofer to their setup.
Before this update, each room could only have one Sub.
Sonos says Dual Subs have been a long-requested feature, but it appears the company is only focusing on adding this feature to its speakers that are used with televisions, including Arc, Beam, Playbar, Playbase, and Amp.
There are also some other restrictions. At least one of the Subs you plan to use must be a newer 3rd Gen Sub from this year as it needs additional processing power. You can also use this feature only with the new Sonos S2 app.
It should be noted that the amplifier does not need to be connected to a television, making it the only option for people looking to add extra bass to their setups. However, the amplifier can also be equipped with a wired subwoofer.
The company also left MobileSyrup know that they have started selling a version of the Arc soundbar called Arc SL at Costco. It’s like the regular Sonos Arc, but it doesn’t have microphones, so it’s not technically a smart speaker. If you don’t need the microphones, the SL version of the speaker is $ 50 cheaper, priced at $ 950 CAD.
