Rooms

Everyone in the house can listen to something different, or you can group Sonos products together to play the same music. If you have a home theater speaker, you can send the TV sound to other rooms, too.

Tap S2-system@2x.png on a mobile device to see what’s playing in each room. To change what’s playing, tap a room, and choose different content from Browse, Search, or My Sonos. If any rooms are missing, go to S2-settings-grey.png > Support > Find Missing Products and we’ll help you find them (available only with the Sonos S2 app). Learn more.

Select S2-group-grey.png to play the same music in more than one room. With the Sonos S2 app, you can also save a group of rooms to easily select it again later.

If you’re near a speaker, press and hold the ALL_play_pause.png button to easily add the music from another room. If different content is playing in different rooms, just press and hold ALL_play_pause00120.png until you hear the sound you want.

Room Settings

You can customize Sonos products for your surroundings.

Room Name

If you move your speaker to a new room, you can change its name in your room’s settings.

Turn off WiFi

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, Port, Connect, and Connect:Amp, 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 analyzes the surroundings in a room and then adjusts each woofer and tweeter to provide you with the best sound for that room. Learn more

Volume Limit

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

Status Light

There’s a status light on each product. If the light is distracting, you can turn it off in your room’s settings. If it ever flashes orange, you can get more information about the LED states.

Touch Controls

You can disable the touch control buttons 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

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.

Height Audio

When listening to Dolby Atmos audio through Sonos Arc or Arc SL, you can adjust the level of the height audio channels. Learn more

Line-In

You can connect an audio device like a turntable, stereo, or MP3 player to a Play:5, Amp, Connect, or Connect:Amp and stream the audio to Sonos. Learn more

Stereo pairs

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.
