Take your compatible* Sony soundbar or home cinema system to new a new bass dimension, with the Sony SA-SW5 wireless subwoofer.

Easy set-up
If you’ve got a compatible* 2021 Sony soundbar or home cinema system but feel it’s just lacking in the bass department, then here’s your answer. Designed to effortlessly, wirelessly connect to the system, the SA-SW5 is ready in no time to add a new dimension in bass.

Bass you can feel
With 300 watts of force available, it’s hard not to feel the effect of the Sony SA-SW5. Sony’s proprietary Sigma Magnetic Circuitry technology maximises the magnetic force, giving you bass that’s not just deep but powerful and sustained.

Clean sound
Another Sony proprietary technology, Separated Notch Edge, uses an innovative woofer surround to reduce cone distortion. Less distortion means a cleaner, punchier sound, without the excessive ‘boom’ and wallow that can afflict some subwoofers.

Premium Omnidirectional Block Design
Designed to harmoniously blend with the soundbar and optional SA-RS35 rear speakers, the Omnidirectional Block Design gives a unifying style to the whole system. The rounded edges don’t just look sleek, they help promote a wide spread of sound, too.

Introduce some controlled thunder to your system, with the Sony SA-SW5.

*Please note, this subwoofer is currently only compatible with Sony’s Dolby Atmos/DTS:X 2021 home cinema line-up, including the HT-A7000 and HT-A9 speaker package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bass to add to Sony HT-A9 or soundbar I'm using this paired with the Sony HT-A9 and I'm really impressed. My living room is not large and I considered this or the smaller SW3, however I figured go for the big one and turn it down if needed. I find the bass this produces pretty tight creating a good atmosphere that fills my room. I have the bass set around 60% and find this is a good balance. If you had a really big room or you didn't have neighbours you might want a bit more bass, but I find it absolutely perfect and balanced with the rest of my sound system. I do have it in the corner of the room but I don't find it automatically sounds like the base is coming from direction. It kind of fills the room which is nice, and something I worried about as I don't have a lot of choice for placement of this

Rated 3 out of 5 by from All good until!!! All seemed great for a couple of weeks until I noticed a popping sound when the volume was low in a film as if the sub was either loosing signal or not coping with the signal it was getting, awaiting answers from the shop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning sound quality! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Upon arrival, the quality and attention to detail was clear to see, not just in the product itself, but the packaging and instructions too. The installation, (even for myself with limited technical ability) was easy. The connection instructions are clear and logically formatted with useful connectivity tips. The power connection, approximately 1m cable and a link button for connecting to the sound bar, are placed discreetly at the rear; therefore the appearance is not affected. It's very simple, yet stunning looking design. The clarity of sound is extremely impressive. When linked with rear speakers and sound bar the subwoofer comes into it's own; the sound becomes all enveloping! Overall, I am delighted with the all aspects of the product. It has brilliant sound quality with impressive easy to use features. Highly recommended!

It’s very simple to connect, you turn it on and it’s automatically found by the A7000 Soundbar. It’s a great addition to an already excellent sound bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra oomph in all the right places. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] One of the hardest things to do in life, is describe sound, so much so that words such as "wide, stage, depth, resolution" all get used, but quite often are used to describe something completely different. What's even harder, is to describe subwoofers. So without any use whatsoever of wide, stage, depth or resolution (well maybe depth) let's try and let you know how good this sub really is... (And it's really good!) So, with most subwoofers I have always used the old "if it's heavy, it's probably good" and it seems to have done me well so far (with one exception in the 90s when I bought a sub from a market and it sounded horrific) and this sub is no exception, it tops the scales just over 13kg, of which I'd hazard a guess at a 11kg speaker and the other into construction materials, it's a really solid build, and the finish quality is really good. Connection to the HT-A7000 is as simple as plugging it into the mains and powering on, that's it. The A7000 will detect it and connect to it fully automatically, it's really, really simple. Ok, that's all well and good, easy connection, good build quality.... But how does it sound.... Now, subwoofers tend to come in 3 distinct categories. 1 ones that sound punchy 2 ones that hit great sounding low frequencies 3 ones that sound like a giant blowing raspberries Number 3 is not good, probably best left to people's bad car installs whereas numbers 1 & 2 are good, sometimes you get subs that are both 1&2, these can have the potential to be excellent, the SA-SW5 is one of these. For setting up and checking subwoofers I generally use two listening methods. Firstly I play the Jurassic park T-Rex escape scene. In this scene you can check bass levels on many particular events, the foot steps of the approaching T-Rex, the thunder, and the roar. On the footsteps, bad subs will show a distinct warble effect after each pound as the sound tapers off, this subwoofer did not, it provided a great initial thud, followed by a perfect fall off as the sound tapers, great sounding. The thunder in bad subs will sound good, but you will get "empty" spots where the frequency is just beyond the response frequency of the sub, again this does not happen with this subwoofer, the sharp bang of the thunder coming from the A7000 is perfectly followed by a deep boom from the sub while the distant rolling bass and echoes are perfectly rendered from the subwoofer. Lastly, the T-Rex roar. Just because on a fully kitted out 5.1 or 7.1 system it sounds awesome, and yes, it really does on the SA-SW5. The second way I test subwoofers, is by playing a hi-res version of the popular dance song "Smack my (female dog) up" by the Prodigy. This song has so many elements that rely on good subwoofer set ups it's really unreal, the initial kick at 42 seconds is followed by so many elements that are deep and bassy that it's a really great way to check the capabilities of a good subwoofer. Each element, each kick, pad and synth sounds perfect to my ears. Each kick has punch, each synth has great depth, it's an overall exceptional experience. Which is how I'd sum up the SA-SW5 as a whole, it provides an exceptional experience, which in itself adds to the brilliant audio from the host A7000. For some the A7000 holds quite enough punch as it is, but for that extra bit of excellence, I would thoroughly recommend this unit.
