Hi there, 

looking for some advice, moved into a house which has in-built ceiling speakers running off a russound cav 6.6 system. There’s 6 channels/zones in the house.


We have multiple Sonos speakers, 2 Sonos lamps, sub, play bar, 2 play 1 & play 5. 

looking to know what’s the best option to connect the old russound system to Sonos. My current stop gap is using the play 5 with an aux cable but I know I’m not getting the best out of the service.

any and all suggestions welcome. Do I need Port? How many speakers can I run off one port? Or is the Amp connect the best way? Again how many speakers can I run off one?


look forward to knowing the best options- thanks in advance

Hi @davylacy, thank you for reaching out to the Sonos community. I appreciate you for bringing this concern to us. Let me help you out.

First, I'd like to ask some questions to get more information for us to provide the best option for you.

1. What surround system are you referring to? Are these Sonos speakers? 3rd-party in-wall or in-ceiling speakers?
2. What type of music source you're connecting to your Sonos Play 5?
3. Can you provide the make and model of your other device to look up the information?

We'd appreciate it if you can submit a diagnostic report for us to check your current Sonos system. Just include the confirmation number in your response so that we can look up the information.

If you need help with any other information, please be sure to let us know. The Sonos Community is always here to help.
