Five

Overview

Overview Image

The high-fidelity speaker for superior sound

  • Versatile design with smart orientation sensing. Pair two speakers horizontally and Five automatically separates the left and right channels for impressive stereo sound. When paired vertically, each smartly adjusts to mono for more detailed stereo separation and an even wider soundstage.
  • Touch controls on the speaker let you adjust volume, play and pause, or skip through songs.
  • Use the line-in port to connect your turntable or another device—simple control with the Sonos app or Apple AirPlay 2.
  • Pair two Fives for left-right stereo sound or use two Fives as rear surrounds for your home theater.
  • Control your Sonos system with the Sonos app (for Android and iOS).
  • See Setup when you’re ready to add Five to your Sonos system.

Select a location

You can put your speaker just about anywhere. For maximum performance, here's a few guidelines:

  • Five is a substantial and powerful speaker and should be placed on a flat surface that is robust and durable enough to properly support it. Make sure Five’s rubber feet sit completely on the flat surface.
  • Allow at least 2" perimeter all around Five, including its power cord.
  • For a single Five speaker, we recommend positioning the speaker horizontally to enable stereo sound.
  • Place Five across the room from where you’ll be listening (at or close to your ear height for best results).
  • For stereo pair placement information, see Set up stereo pair.
  • Five is humidity resistant so you can use it in the bathroom; however it is not water resistant, so don’t position it near water or leave it outside during a rain storm.

Set up stereo pair

Pair two Sonos speakers in the same room for a wider, stereo experience. One speaker serves as the left channel and one serves as the right channel.

Note: The Sonos speakers in a stereo pair must be the same type.

  1. Place the speakers 8 to 10 feet apart. Your favorite listening position should be 8 to 12 feet from the paired speakers—less distance increases bass, more distance improves stereo imaging.
  2. Go to > System.
  3. Select one of the speakers you want to use in the stereo pair, then choose Set Up Stereo Pair to get started. Learn more

Set up surrounds

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.

  1. Place each surround speaker about 10ft from your favorite listening position, angling them toward the seating area.
  2. Go to > System.
  3. Select a room with a soundbar and choose Add Surrounds to get started.

Note: If you group the rooms or create a stereo pair instead, you won't have surround sound.
