Ok. So I just purchased the Sonos Sub for a Black Friday sale after reading on the reviews how it changes everything about the PlayBar. I have not picked it up yet, but I am interested on getting some setup tips since I do live in an upstairs apartment. I also think I may have to lay the sub horizontally under my TV stand, which would still have about 2 inches above the sub.
I've read many threads about apartments and subs, but awhile back I had a Bose sub and I turned the volume just on the sub down to still get the depth I want in music, but not disturb my neighbors. For 5 years I never had a complaint and liked the depth of sound. Since I switched to the Sonos Playbar I did feel a certain depth was lost without a sub, which is why the Black Friday purchase. I do not listen to loud movies, I only listen to music like jazz, blues, and classic rock but also listen to TV. I never try to play it loud and I am always mindful. But I want to set up the Sonos sub so it is not a waste of $600 by turning it so low the sub is not doing its job, but I also don't want to disturb my neighbors. Is that possible?
Knowing all this, is there a certain setting I should use for the Sonos sub in an upstairs apartment? Any thoughts would be appreciated. How do you turn the volume down? Can it be tweaked for this type of situation? Is it still worth it?
