Sonos Architectural by Sonance

With a shared commitment to superior sound and great design, Sonos and Sonance have partnered on a collection of architectural passive speakers optimized for Sonos Amp.

The Sonos experience

Power these speakers with Amp, which applies custom digital signal processing for enhanced sound, to enjoy the full Sonos experience, including control with the Sonos app and Apple AirPlay 2.

All-around sound

Ideal for ambient listening, these speakers deliver crystal clear sound for comfortable listening from anywhere in the room.

Customized sound

Amp unlocks Trueplay, which accounts for the size, construction, and layout of the room where the speakers are placed and adjusts for the best possible sound.

Designed to disappear.

The specially designed round, or optional square, grilles can be painted to match your ceiling.

Frequently Asked Questions

When these speakers are connected to Sonos Amp, the Amp will automatically detect them, and automatically adjust the sound to be best for that speaker. This is only possible because we designed the speakers from the ground up with Sonance. This also means the indoor models (In-Wall and In-Ceiling) are the only passive speakers to support Sonos’ Trueplay tuning, which tunes the system to the room environment.

No, only the In-Wall and In-Ceiling speakers will support Trueplay. The Outdoor speakers will not, since the outdoor environment is not favorable to Trueplay.

The Sonos Amp has been designed to power up to three pairs of Sonos Architectural speakers on a single Sonos Amp.

The Sonos Architectural speakers will work with most amplifiers. However, you will not be able to take advantage of the TruePlay room tuning capabilities with any amplifier other than Sonos Amp.

Only the Sonos Outdoor by Sonance model is rated for outdoor use. The In-Wall and In-Celling models are not rated for outdoor use and should only be installed indoors.

The Sonos In-Ceiling by Sonance speakers use a cutout hole that is 8 1/4" in diameter. If your existing hole is that size (or smaller) the Sonos speakers will fit but may require a small amount of drywall to be removed (if the hole is smaller than 8 1/4"). The Sonos In-Wall by Sonance speaker cutout dimension is 7” x 10 3/4"; if your opening is the same size or smaller, the same rules apply. If your opening is larger than these holes, the speakers will not fit, and drywall work will be required to patch and recut a hole to fit your Sonos Architectural speakers.

We recommend using wire that is 16ga or larger. For the in-wall and in-ceiling speakers we recommend using wire rated to be buried inside of walls and ceilings. For the outdoor speakers we recommend using wire that is rated for outdoor use.

We recommend placing your speakers in locations in the ceiling that will provide smooth and even balanced coverage in as many locations as possible in the room. If your room is large, we recommend a second pair of speakers to provide the room with the best coverage and the optimal listening experience.

The speakers should be installed above and slightly behind the primary seating position.
