How good is the bass? and can I connect a separate subwoofer to it and have it play through airplay?

    The bass response is quite good for a relatively small speaker dock. It is better than the original Zepp and you can adjust the bass response with a docked iOS device. There is no input to append another subwoofer. The bass repsonse is enhanced if it is close to a wall or something.

  • The bass is very good for the size of the system. It is not a bumper by any means, but has a very natural and present sound. I don't think there is a way to connect an active sub to the system directly. The only way I can think of adding a subwoofer is by streaming music through an airport express, connect a receiver to the AUX output on the router, and connect the subwoofer and Air to the receiver. However, if you are willing to go through all of that, I'd recommend a nice bookshelf system instead.
