Installing Sonos Sub within wall

In the process of a new construction and am looking into installing speakers throughout the house. In the main living area I'm looking into the playbar with two additional speakers in the rear installed within the ceiling to create a 5.1 system. In regards to the Sonos Sub, can it be installed within a wall off to the side and if so how will this affect the sound and its performance. Not a fan of the subwoofer sitting in a corner or in view and looking for other options. I know you can place it under a sofa but that isn't an option due to our current sofa design. Thanks.

Hi kkast21,

You can place SUB in a wall as long as one side of it is still open for air flow.
Maybe put a grill over the front if you don't want to see SUB, but just make sure that front side is open to air flow at all times.
Providing one side of the SUB is open sound quality should still be great and shouldn't be impacted.

Best regards!
Did you end up installing your sub in-wall? How does it sound?
