Ethernet ports (2)

You can use an Ethernet cable (supplied) to connect to a router, computer, or additional network device like a network-attached storage (NAS) device.

LED indicators:

  • Green (link connection)

  • Flashing Yellow (network activity)

Right speaker terminals

Use high-quality speaker wire to connect the right speaker to Connect:Amp.

Left speaker terminals

Use high-quality speaker wire to connect the left speaker to Connect:Amp.

Voltage select 

100 – 120V~ / 220 – 240V~ 50 – 60 Hz

Select the appropriate voltage setting for your country.

AC power (mains) input

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

Analog audio in

You may use a standard RCA audio cable to connect the Connect:Amp’s analog audio inputs to the audio outputs from a separate audio component, like a turntable.

Subwoofer output

Note:If you disconnect your subwoofer, make sure to also disconnect the subwoofer’s cable from the Connect:Amp output.

You may connect a powered subwoofer to this output using a standard RCA cable. The system will detect when a cable is connected to the subwoofer output and adjust the crossover frequency automatically.

Connect the cables

Attach desired speakers

Your speaker’s power rating should be at least 55W for 8 ohm speakers, and at least 100W for 4 ohm speakers. Don’t connect speakers rated at less than 4 ohms. 

  1. Use your thumb or finger to firmly push the spring-loaded speaker connector post inward to reveal the connection hole.

  2. Insert the stripped end of the speaker wire into the hole, and then release. The stripped portion should be caught firmly in the connector post.

  3. Note:Connect the red (+) and black (-) terminals from each speaker to the corresponding terminals on the Connect:Amp. Mismatching of polarities will result in weak central sound, and a distorted sense of sound direction.

  4. Repeat to install the other speaker wires.

If your speakers have banana connectors, you can insert the plugs directly into the banana jacks on the back of the Connect:Amp instead.

Connect the power cord

Attach the power cord and plug in the Connect:Amp.

If you don’t have the app, download it from the app store. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system. See Getting started.

Line-in

Connect an external source like a phono preamp (your turntable may have a built-in phone preamp), or other audio device. Learn more.
