Select a location

You can put your speaker just about anywhere. For maximum enjoyment, we have a few guidelines:

Speaker mounts and stands

The Play:3 has a standard 1/4"-20 threaded mounting socket. If desired, you can easily wall mount it using a suitable bracket (not included). Simply choose a location that’s close to an electrical outlet (power cord length is 2m), taking care to avoid heat, steam, dripping water, or hidden wiring, and follow the instructions included with the mounting bracket.

Note:Be sure the wall mount bracket you purchase will support at least 10lb (4.5 kg) and has a 1/4"-20 threaded post.

For wall mount kits or stands, tailored to perfectly fit your Sonos products, see Accessories on our website. Follow the instructions in the kit.
