I have recently purchased a Sonos Connect Amp to power bathroom ceiling speakers. As I only need one speaker in the bathroom, I have decided to run the second channel to another single speaker in an adjoining bathroom. I understand I won’t be able to play music to each bathroom separately but I’m wondering how I wire these speakers so that each single speaker plays both L and R channels (Dual mono is what I think it’s called but only available on newest Sonos Amp, not the connect)
Ideally I’d still want to be able to pan audio entirely to just the one speaker if I had to. I just need the amp to output both L and R channels through the single output.
Any help would be appreciated

Have you already purchased your ceiling speakers? If not, then get a stereo speakers, which will have the left and right channels in the single speaker. You won’t have to be concerned with trying to create mono and will get a better sounding speaker for the space. You can then follow the 4 speaker setup jgatie mentioned….even though you technically are using 2 speakers.
If you want the ability to turn off or control volume for each space separately, you can get a speaker switch. Of course, you won’t be able to control that through Sonos. You would need a second amp for that.
