What is a wireless speaker?

A wireless speaker connects to your WiFi network to stream audio content. Play:5 does not have a battery and therefore requires AC power.

How do I set up a Sonos speaker?

Download the Sonos app and create an account. Plug your speaker in and open the app. Make sure your device is connected to your home's WiFi network. The app will take you through setup step by step in only a few minutes.

Can I connect Play:5 to my TV?

No. The line-in isn't designed for use with a TV and will result in some latency or lip sync issues while the audio is converted from analog to digital.

Can I adjust the bass level?

Yes. You can adjust the following equalization (EQ) settings of each Sonos speaker from the Room Settings menu of the Sonos app: bass, treble, balance, and loudness.

Can I use a pair of Play:5 speakers as home theater surrounds?

Yes. Play:5 will connect to Sonos home theater speakers or home theater systems connected to Sonos components.

Can I put Play:5 outside on my patio or in my backyard?

Play:5 is humidity resistant but not weather rated. It is not recommended that you leave Play:5 outdoors when it is not in use.

How can I use voice control with Play:5?

Play:5 can be controlled with either Alexa or the Google Assistant when connected to a voice-enabled device, such as Sonos One, Beam, Google Home, or an Amazon Echo Dot, over WiFi.

Can I hardwire Play:5 to my network router?

Yes. Play:5 has an ethernet port so you can connect it directly to your router if WiFi is unreliable.

Take a comprehensive look at the set up, function, and maintenance of Play:5. The product manual details all of its specifications and how to care for your Sonos speaker.
