Energetic Armament is well known for making high-quality silencers for pistols, SMGs, and rifles. Recently, Energetic Armament released its newest silencer—the Sonus. Sonus is a 9mm silencer that weighs 9.8 ounces and can shoot .38/.357, 9mm, .300 BLK(super & subsonic), and 8.6 BLK(subsonic). The new Sonus is full-auto rated for 9mm only.

Below is the product description of the Sonus silencer from Energetic Armament.

Product Description

SONUS: Latin for sound. Raise your standards and lower your sound.

Utilizing 17-4 Stainless Steel heat treated to the H900 condition, the Sonus is engineered to be ultralight at only 9.8 oz without sacrificing durability. The precision engineered 17-4 design allows for thinner walls which not only optimize low weight but also increases internal volume while maintaining a small outer envelope. More internal volume = better sound attenuation. Thinner walls also mean better heat transfer as the silencer converts the kinetic energy of high- speed muzzle gasses into heat rather than sound. All these factors produce an optimized geometry to give you the best possible performance for the most compact, light silencer possible. Efficiency is engineered into every silencer Energetic Armament designs and the Sonus continues that legacy.

The Sonus ships with a removable 1/2-28 direct thread adapter and is compatible with all industry standard 1.375×24 HUB or Bravo style quick-disconnect mounting systems.

For 3-lug sub-guns, the Sonus works with all industry standard 3-lug mounts having the HUB pattern. The Sonus also readily accepts all industry standard booster assemblies with the HUB pattern for use on pistols.  

The end cap of the Sonus is removable and features a wipe holder as standard equipment. A high temperature rated silicone wipe provides ultra-quiet sound performance when using sub-sonic rounds. The wipe forms a seal to the exiting bullet to control gas flow and bring the ultimate quiet to your shot. The Sonus is quiet… really quiet… with low, even tone that gives your firearms the sound you want.
