It’s easy to turn two Sonos speakers (same model), or a Sonos Amp and your favorite non-Sonos speakers, into separate right and left channels for your home theater.
Note: If you group the rooms or create a stereo pair instead, you won't have surround sound.
During setup, surround sound is optimized for your room. These settings are adjustable:
Turn surround sound On or Off.
Adjust surround volume for TV audio.
Adjust surround volume for music.
Ambient (subtle) or Full (louder, full range). Doesn't apply to Dolby Atmos Music playback.
Every room is different. Trueplay tuning measures how sound reflects off walls, furnishings, and other surfaces in a room, then fine tunes your Sonos speaker to make sure it sounds great no matter where you've placed it.
Trueplay works on iOS mobile devices running iOS 8 or later. During tuning, you'll move around the room holding your mobile device.
Note: Trueplay tuning isn’t available if VoiceOver is enabled on your iOS device. Turn VoiceOver off in your device settings before tuning your speakers.
Portable Sonos products like Sonos Roam and Move can tune themselves automatically. Auto Trueplay uses your speaker’s microphone to detect the environment and make periodic tuning adjustments so you get great sound wherever your speaker is and whatever you're listening to.
Go to > System, and select your portable speaker to turn on auto Trueplay.
