Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I'm having a weird issue with using Alexa for random queries, wherein the nature of the question (rather than which speaker I am closest to) seems to determine which speaker responds and how loudly it does so.
For background, my Sonos system is using a Boost setup. I have a Playbar and two Sonos One's in a surround setup in one room. Also, as I'm sure you're probably aware, Sonos speakers do not currently have separate volume settings available for music and Alexa volume, which results in situations where I have the volume at about 40-50% which is just right for TV-input or Music, but if I ask Alexa a question then her response is so loud it is like she is shouting at me. In order to get Alexa to a reasonable volume, I would have to drop the speaker to about 20%, at which point the TV audio via the Playbar would be barely audible.
Anyway, if I ask Alexa a basic question on one of the Sonos Ones, such as "Alexa, what is the temperature outside", then she will give me a near-instant answer (extremely loudly!) out of that single Sonos One. However, if I ask a different type of question, such as "Alexa, are there any Hockey games on today", then her response will take about 2-3 seconds delayed, and the answer will come (much more quietly) out of the entire surround setup (Playbar + both surround Sonos Ones providing ambient noise).
The difference in volume, as well as the fact that the entire surround setup (Playbar + both Sonos Ones) are involved, as well as potentially the 2-3 second delay, seems to indicate that the responses to more detailed questions are being handled like TV/Music audio, rather than a more basic Alexa response.
Anyone else experienced this, and/or have a fix?
