What does it mean that these speakers are optimised for Sonos Amp?
When these speakers are connected to Sonos Amp, 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’s Trueplay tuning, which tunes the system to the room environment.
Will all three speakers support Trueplay?
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.
Where should my in-wall speakers be installed?
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.
Can I use these speakers with amplifiers other than 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.
Can Sonos Architectural speakers be installed outdoors?
Only the Sonos Outdoor by Sonance model is rated for outdoor use. The In-Wall and In-Celling models are not rated for outdoor use and should only be installed indoors.
