PLAYBASE TV Placement Guidelines

PLAYBASE TV Placement Guidelines

Single Foot Stands

Make sure your TV stand rests completely on your PLAYBASE with no overhang. Securely supports any screen up to 77 lbs (35 kg).

What works

Single foot and continuous frames.

What doesn't

Stands with unstable legs.

Split Foot Stands

PLAYBASE fits conveniently between the legs of most TVs stands with separate feet.

What works

Feet must be at least 2.3” (58mm) tall to allow for PLAYBASE clearance.

What doesn't

Legs that are either too close together or too low to provide full clearance.


Work Arounds & Watch Outs

Consider a TV stand with shelves. Or place inside a cabinet.

For best acoustics, set your PLAYBASE toward the front with 2” of clearance on each side.

Watch Outs

Don’t place objects lighter than 5 lbs (2.3 kg) on top of your PLAYBASE. The sound may send them flying.

What’s on your TV is only as good as what your TV is on.

See why

Everything sounds better on PLAYBASE.

Movies, sports, TV shows, gaming - the slim, low profile PLAYBASE adds dynamic, pulse-pounding sound to whatever’s playing when your TV’s on. And streams your favorite music when it’s off.

An off-the-wall approach to better TV sound.

Typical soundbars work best when wall-mounted directly below a TV. Truth is, most TVs end up on stands and furniture – exactly what PLAYBASE was created for. Its low profile design practically disappears beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with epic home theater audio.

Two cords. That's it.

One power cord. And one optical cord for your TV. You don't even have to read the manual; the Sonos app guides you through every step of set up.

Send TV sound all around.

PLAYBASE makes movies, sports, games, and music come alive... in one room. Add more Sonos speakers and you can listen to what's playing on your TV in any room.

Movies and music to the power of 10.

Ten amplified internal drivers–six mid-range, three tweeters, and one woofer–replace the limited output of your TV's built-in speakers with deeper booms, crystal clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.

One app. Complete music control.

Search instantly through all your music services to find the songs you love, send them to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings for each room.

Check out the app.

Apple Music, Spotify, and over 30 other services available.

Sonos plays it all – popular streaming services, free Internet radio, podcasts, audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads – whatever you love to listen to.

Custom tune your PLAYBASE.

With Trueplay you can set your home theater speakers up however you want–and know they’re going to sound amazing.

How Trueplay works

Additional Features

Speech enhancement setting.

Keeps dialog volume consistent while reducing the intensity of loud sound effects. So you can clearly understand even the faintest whisper.

Night sound setting.

Don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes, quiet sounds get a slight boost while loud ones are automatically reduced.

Plays everything.

Cable boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-ray players. If it’s connected to your TV, PLAYBASE will play it.

Widescreen sound. No wall mount required.

PLAYBASE securely supports TVs up to 77 lbs (35 kg). Which covers just about any TV that comes with its own stand.


Set up over Wifi.

Plug in. Connect. Stream without interruptions or interference.

Start in any room. Add on.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Keeps getting better.

Software updates mean the product you buy today will be even better tomorrow.

    Comments about SONOS PLAYBASE:

    I purchased this item based on the sound quality of my PLAY 1. I was blown away by the sound of the PLAYBASE. Thrilled beyond belief, actually. It's been quite a few years since I have had a music system. This one was incredibly was easy to set up, gorgeous music emanates from it, and I was able to improve the sound from my flat screen TV. With the free phone app I am able to easily switch from TV to music of all kinds, and back, in the blink of an eye. This unit is on 3/4's of each day until I set the sleep timer and nod off. I am so pleased with Sonos products that a two box shipment with three items is on it's way to a family member as a HUGE thank you. I sincerely hope that anyone who reads this purchases the PLAYBASE. It is an amazing piece of electronics that is filling my home and head with gorgeous classical music every day, and improving the poor quality of TV sounds spectacularly. I would give this 100 stars if possible!

      This product looks and sounds great. My one gripe is that while very easy to setup, the app is a little fiddly when you want to do simple things.
