Excerpt: this is a continuation of my review of setting up a sonos 5.1 surround home theater system. I set the sub in the front left corner of my living room. the sub needs to be plugged to an a/c outlet for power. it has an Ethernet port, should you decide to use it as the main wireless "hub" for your sonos surround system (I have the playbar wired to my router). I use the sub wirelessly. immediately one can notice the improved bass for music, movies, and television programming.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I originally purchased two Play 1s and set them up as a stereo pair and have been extremely happy with ease of setup and sound quality. Of course the 1s are limited in the bass department, but they do offer a nice balanced punchy mid range sound that I thought would balance out well with the addition of the SUB. GETTING STARTED: The Sonos SUB was packaged very well and it is definitely a heavy-duty, high quality piece of equipment.
