What is Amazon Echo Sub?
Announced in September 2018, Amazon Echo Sub is a standalone subwoofer built to work alongside Amazon's existing Echo speakers. This means that, unlike other Echo devices, the Echo Sub doesn't do a whole lot on its own. Instead, it needs to be paired with one or two Echo speakers such as the original Echo or Echo Plus in order to deliver the powerful bass that it promises.
The Echo Sub currently supports pairing with either a single Echo device or two of the same devices. When paired with a single Echo device, it operates in a standard mono-audio configuration. When paired with two identical Echo devices, it instead produces a 2.1 stereo sound system.
