Sonos SUB vs Definitive Technology ProSub 1000

Sonos SUB review

Sonos Sub is a wireless sub for deep bass. Sonos SUB vs Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 has a Wi-Fi network. You can connect your phone/tablet using SonosNet. You can confidently use your smartphone away from home Wi-Fi. The sub is a worthy addition to almost any combination of Sonos speakers. It is well made, heavy, and easy to install. Two D-Class amplifiers are perfectly tuned to combine speakers and sound architecture. Moreover, two speakers are located face to face for a deeper, luxurious sound, and zero mechanical noise.

Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 review

The ProSub 1000 is a not big, high-quality powered sub. It is equipped with a 300-watt amplifier. Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 has a 10-inch driver size vs Sonos SUB has an 8-inch. It has a step-less low-pass filter adjustment that allows you to select high-frequency decay from 40 to 150 Hz. The ProSub has a monocoque body structure, specially designed for complete inertness and vibration-free, to ensure clear sound reproduction. Modern construction and quality components such as mil-spec glass-epoxy printed circuit boards, as well as precision resistors, capacitors, guarantee years of trouble-free operation.
