Good Morning all

Could anyone offer me some guidance on where you would position the sonos amp when using there outdoor speakers ? 

does the amp need to be fixed indoors 

thinking of putting 2 x sonos speakers above my bi fold doors on the house 

would i position the amp internally and drill through etc? 

no idea so excuse me if i sound daft ha ha

Sorry, if I haven't been clear. Sonos don't make outdoor speakers but they do have a partnership with Sonance. You can use other speakers, which is why I asked my question above.

The Sonos Amp needs to be protected from the weather, so it's better inside. The location of the speakers will depend upon what type they are.
