How low can you go? As low as 22Hz if you add Bluesound's new PULSE SUB+ to any of the company's existing wired or wireless speakers. The new subwoofer incorporates a 150-watt DSP-controlled amplifier and 8-inch long-throw woofer, along with wireless connectivity. That and its compact size means it should be easy to integrate it into any room. Users can easily access and control volume, crossover, and phase adjustment via the BluOS Controller app available for iPhone and Android devices. The PULSE SUB+ is available now for $749.

Here's more from Bluesound about the new subwoofer:
Bluesound, makers of the award-winning hi-res wireless multi-room line of audio players, announced the PULSE SUB+, an all-new subwoofer addition to the brand's high-performance ecosystem. The SUB+ adds deep bass to any wireless or wired Bluesound system and features the convenience of precision app control. The new Bluesound model builds on everything the original PULSE SUB offered and takes it to the next level.
The Bluesound PULSE SUB+ ($749 U.S. MSRP) is offered in a choice of Black or White finish and is configurable to a wide range of applications. For ease of installation, it comes supplied with a wall mount bracket and magnetic rubber feet. Available to pre-order now, the SUB+ will begin shipping in late October 2020.
Like the rest of the Bluesound product family, the PULSE SUB+ is a from-scratch design, created to combine practicality and performance in one elegant product. An 8" long-throw woofer and 150W Smart Amplifier with DSP delivers low frequencies to a deep 22Hz. Acoustically, the design approach is true to the brand's musically-inclined HiFi heritage and results in a tight, quick, musical subwoofer, equally well suited for music or home theater.
Bluesound aimed for maximum output from minimal size (18" W X 11.8" H X 5.75"D) to blend into any room application and any décor, staying true to the belief that a subwoofer doesn't have to be either large or imposing. This design philosophy results in a sleek, compact, and versatile product that promises to satisfy in both performance and aesthetics.
Just Add Bass
Bluesound designed it to be simple and it starts by using the BluOS Controller app to quickly setup and pair the SUB+ with any Bluesound product. With BluOS onboard, the user benefits from simple and intuitive app controls for volume, crossover, and phase adjustment. Easy software control means more options and more precision as users dial in the best settings for their ideal listening experience.
Place It Anywhere
Bluesound believes that a subwoofer doesn't have to be imposing or inflexible. For placement flexibility, a SUB+ wall mount bracket is included to allow this versatile subwoofer to be located almost anywhere in the room. The magnetic rubber feet can also be used to stand the SUB+ vertically for placement behind or beside a sofa or chair, or it can be placed horizontally underneath a couch or end table. Wireless connectivity and choice of Black or White finish allows an even wider range of décor options.
Adding It All up
With its BluOS smarts, the 8" driver, the 150W Smart DSP Amplifier, and the versatility in placement and connection options, the PULSE SUB+ offers a truly meaningful addition to virtually any entertainment setup. With tight, dynamic power and a depth that evokes pure emotion, the SUB+ is an ideal addition for movie and music lovers. For even more bass, add a second SUB+ via the BluOS Controller app and optimize the in-room settings with the advanced audio controls.
Like all Bluesound PULSE speaker models, the acoustic design and speaker voicing was performed at Canada's National Research Council by Lenbrook's renowned speaker design and engineering team.
"At Bluesound, we take pride in the uniqueness and innovation instilled into our products and the PULSE speakers are no exception", commented Matt Simmonds, Product Manager for Bluesound. "The SUB+ builds on our original PULSE SUB and takes it to the next level by combining deep bass, wireless convenience and flexible applications and does so at an affordable price."
