Sonos has launched Arc SL, a cheaper version of its new Dolby Atmos soundbar but without built-in microphones. It has also added support for twin Subs.
Twin Sonos Subs
If you own a Sonos Arc, Beam, Playbar, Playbase or Amp, you can now pair two Sonos Subs to add some extra bass to the living room. At least one of the two Subs must be a Gen-3.
- "You can now add up to two Subs to your Sonos home theater setup," the company said. "When adding a second Sub, at least one of the Subs must be a Sub (Gen 3)."
It is a relatively expensive option as each Sonos Sub will set you back $700 dollars but it is a feature that some users have been asking for for a while. You can learn more about how to set up a second Sub to a Sonos system here.

The company has also launched a slightly cheaper version of its Arc soundbar. The Sonos Arc SL lacks the microphone capabilities of the regular Sonos Arc but is otherwise identical in terms of hardware, design, and capabilities.
