I have a Sonos One in my bedroom that is set to a very low volume using the buttons on the top of the device. This is so I don’t bother anyone in the next room. However if I say “Alexa volume 1” this sets the Alexa volume higher than what I’ve set the Sonos device manually. So when I say “Alexa, news”, I get the following”
“Here’s your news” (at the louder Alexa volume)
“from Sky news” (at the lower manually set Sonos volume)
“from Sky news” (yes, repeated, at the lower manually set Sonos volume)
Then the news follows at the lower manually set Sonos volume.
So I have a couple of questions.
- How do I get Alexa to reply in the first instance at the lower volume?
- Why is Alexa repeating “from Sky News”.

In some respects the sonos speaker is similar to having two components, an echo dot-like device and also a sonos speaker all combined into one unit and the echo operates under amazons chosen volume conditions and the speaker works like all other sonos devices between volumes of 1 to 100.
I personally think to change the alexa component volume control would possibly mean Amazon having to change the volume increments and commands for all the echo devices too. So its perhaps not as easily done as we think and it may even require some hardware changes on some Amazon devices too ... Thats my guess, at least.
