Hello to All,

I am new to this Forum and would appreciate an expert input!  ;-)

My Sonos sub bass is sounding In & out of Sync; as if the “bass” is delayed; few songs sound good but then the sub goes out of sync. So it is an intermittent issue. PS: this sub is wired to the home network as it is far away from the Sonos Amp. Any suggestions? Thanks!

What happens if the Sub is wireless?

The issue will of course be the wired network latency. Assuming there is absolutely no way to run the Sub over a direct 5Ghz Ad-hoc low-latency wireless connection to the Amp, your best bet, depending on what you may have in place already, is to perhaps look to improve on the wired network latency, perhaps by wiring the Amp and Sub direct to the router/switch, or direct to the ‘same’ switch, rather than say different switches, or maybe try wiring the Sub via the Amp and then back to the router and see if any of those arrangements may possibly improve things, but a 5Ghz direct WiFi connection between the two players would be the ideal option, if at all possible.

It will not connect; unfortunately, the Amp is too far! Thanks!
