You can put your speaker just about anywhere. For maximum performance, here's a few guidelines:
Pair two Sonos speakers in the same room for an even 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.
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.
Connect an audio device, like a projector, CD player, or turntable (with a built-in phono preamp), to any Sonos product that has a line-in port (Era 300, Era 100, Amp, Port, or Five). Then go to > Line-In to select the source and start playback.
Note: Era 300 and Era 100 require a Sonos Line-In or Combo Adapter (sold separately). Other products may require a different type of line-in adapter depending on your audio source.
You can customize Sonos products for your surroundings. Go to > System and select a product.
If you move your speaker to a new room, you can change its name in Settings.
