When these speakers are connected to Sonos Amp, the Amp will automatically detect them, and automatically adjust the sound to be best for that speaker. This is only possible because we designed the speakers from the ground up with Sonance. This also means the indoor models (In-Wall and In-Ceiling) are the only passive speakers to support Sonos’ Trueplay tuning, which tunes the system to the room environment.
No, only the In-Wall and In-Ceiling speakers will support Trueplay. The Outdoor speakers will not, since the outdoor environment is not favourable to Trueplay.
The Sonos Amp has been designed to power up to three pairs of Sonos Architectural speakers on a single Sonos Amp.
The Sonos Architectural speakers will work with most amplifiers. However, you will not be able to take advantage of the TruePlay room tuning capabilities with any amplifier other than Sonos Amp.
Only the Sonos Outdoor by Sonance model is rated for outdoor use. The In-Wall and In-Ceiling models are not rated for outdoor use and should only be installed indoors.
The Sonos In-Ceiling by Sonance speakers use a cutout hole that is 210 mm (8 1/4”) in diameter. If your existing hole is that size (or smaller) the Sonos speakers will fit but may require a small amount of drywall to be removed (if the hole is smaller than 210 mm). The Sonos In-Wall by Sonance speaker cutout dimension is 176 x 273 mm (7” x 10 3/4”); if your opening is the same size or smaller, the same rules apply. If your opening is larger than these holes, the speakers will not fit, and drywall work will be required to patch and recut a hole to fit your Sonos Architectural speakers.
We recommend using wire that is 16ga or larger. For the in-wall and in-ceiling speakers we recommend using wire rated to be buried inside of walls and ceilings. For the outdoor speakers we recommend using wire that is rated for outdoor use.
If you are using the in-wall speakers to replicate sound from your TV, the speakers should be installed a few inches away from the right and left edges of the television with the tweeter of the speaker installed as close to ear level (from the seating position) as possible. If you are using the in-wall speakers as distributed audio speakers and not flanking a television, we recommend placing them in a location that will provide the best coverage for the room.
