Join button

Press to connect to your Sonos system during setup.

2

Ethernet port

Use an Ethernet cable if you want to connect to a router, computer, or network-attached storage (NAS) device (optional).

3

AC power (mains) input

Use only the supplied power cord (using a third-party power cord will void your warranty).

Note: Insert the power cord firmly until it is flush with the bottom of the speaker.

Select a location

You can put your speaker just about anywhere. For maximum performance, here's a few guidelines:

  • Sonos One SL sounds great even when placed next to a wall or on a shelf. For best performance, leave at least 1" (2.5 cm) space around the back of the speaker.
  • It’s humidity-resistant so you can use it in the bathroom.
  • It’s not water-resistant so don’t put it near water or leave it in the rain.

Set up stereo pair

Pair two Sonos speakers in the same room for a 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.

  1. Place the speakers 8 to 10 feet apart. Your favorite listening position should be 8 to 12 feet from the paired speakers—less distance increases bass, more distance improves stereo imaging.
  2. Go to > System.
  3. Select one of the speakers you want to use in the stereo pair, then choose Set Up Stereo Pair to get started. Learn more

Set up surrounds

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.

  1. Place each surround speaker about 10ft from your favorite listening position, angling them toward the seating area.
  2. Go to > System.
  3. Select a room with a soundbar and choose Add Surrounds to get started.

Note: If you group the rooms or create a stereo pair instead, you won't have surround sound.

Turn off WiFi

(not on portable products)

You can turn off your speaker’s WiFi when it’s connected to your network with an Ethernet cable. This reduces power consumption and can improve connectivity for some wired speakers.
For products like Amp and Port, turning off WiFi can reduce the internal temperature when they’re placed in a rack or stacked. Learn more

EQ

Sonos products ship with preset equalization settings. You can change the sound settings (bass, treble, balance, or loudness) to suit your personal preferences. Learn more

Trueplay

Trueplay adapts the sound for your surroundings and content. Portable products can tune themselves automatically. Learn more

Volume Limit

You can set a maximum volume for each room. Learn more

Status Light

Displays the speaker’s connection to WiFi, indicates when the volume is muted, and signals errors. Learn more

Note: If the light is distracting, you can turn it off in Settings.

Touch Controls

You can disable the touch control on your speaker. You may want to do this to prevent a child or curious pet from accidentally adjusting playback or volume. Learn more

Battery Saver

(portable products)

To save battery life, you can set your portable speaker to power off automatically instead of going to sleep. It won't appear in the Sonos app until it’s powered back on.

Line-In

(products with line-in capability)

Connect an audio device like a turntable or stereo to an Amp, Port, or Five. Go to Browse > Line-In, and select the source to start playback.
You can adjust line-in settings like source name, audio level, and autoplay.
