Sonos offers wireless speakers in its Play series in either black or white, but up until now, those wishing to add soul-shaking low end sound to their configuration could only buy a Sonos wireless Sub in one color: black. Today Sonos is making white Sub units available for preorder, with shipments set to begin on October 25th. If you own a white Play:1, 3, or 5, then it’s now possible to add deep low-end sound with a color-matched dedicated wireless Sonos subwoofer.

To preorder, simply head over to Sonos’ website and click on the white option under the color picker. The white sub, like the original black version, costs $699.
For that price, you’re getting a sleekly-designe, powered subwoofer unit featuring two Class-D amps that power two face-to-face force-cancelling speaker drivers. Frequency response dials all the way down to 25 Hz, and this sub can be placed anywhere in a room thanks to its wireless nature.
Placement is really up to the users. The Sub can be shown off like a work of art, or completely hidden somewhere like under a couch while lying flat.
Zac has great things to say about Sonos speakers overall and the Play-series speakers can stand on their own. That said, if you’re looking to add much deeper bass to your setup with no rattle and easy one-button configuration, the Sonos’ Sub unit makes for a good low-end companion. Sonos also plays nice with Apple Music, which is a big feather in its cap when compared to other wireless streaming speakers.
