Pairing the Sub Gen 3 with more than one group of speakers

Not sure if Sonos will read this and apologies if this has already been posted.


I have the Arc, Sub Gen 3 and 2 x SL’s - so a full home cinema set up. My question is I also have 2 x Fives in a stereo pair that I would love to pair with the sub, now I know I can but it means decoupling it from the home cinema set up.


I would love for the app to be developed to allow the sub to be set up with more than one group of speakers with the caveat that obviously only one group could be used at any one time.


The sub is such as awesome piece of tech and I feel that the current need to decouple it and then run true play again is probably putting people off using it to its full potential.


Sonos - please consider sorting this.

Thank you Mark, much appreciated.


Would be great if I could easily utilise the awesome Sub gen 3 with more groups of speakers, such as described.
