Al Fresco Sound
The architectural speakers by Sonance for outdoor listening.
Get detailed sound in your backyard or on your patio with Sonos Outdoor by Sonance. Power these wired speakers with Amp to enjoy the full Sonos experience.
Passive speakers require an amplifier.
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.
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.
