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.

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.

Fill any room

Playbase's powerful speaker array fills any size room with theatre-quality sound.

Place your TV right on top

Playbase's sleek, low-profile design practically disappears beneath your TV.

Expands with you

Playbase is part of the Sonos sound system, so you can easily add more speakers to fill every room of your home with sound.

The soundbase for theatre-quality sound

Premium sound

Backed by ten custom-built drivers, Playbase delivers rich, cinematic sound for all your movies, TV shows, sports, and music.

Speech enhancement

Playbase delivers crisp, clear dialogue. Need even more clarity? Turn on Speech Enhancement.

Night sound

Watching late at night and don’t want to disturb the whole house? Turn on Night Sound.

Rock solid support

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

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

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.

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 favourite music when it’s off.

Grows to 5.1 with zero drama.

Playbase is just the beginning of the ultimate home theatre experience. Add a Sonos Sub for soul-shaking bass. Want full surround sound? Use a pair of Sonos speakers for rear channels.

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 cinema audio.

Connect your Sonos to any Amazon Echo device.

With an Amazon Echo or Dot, you can use your voice to play and control songs, playlists, radio stations, podcasts and more.

The wireless home sound system that gets better over time.

Easily connect Sonos speakers in different rooms over WiFi to create a home sound system that brings every room and everyone together. Regular software updates means your product is constantly improving.
