Loss of low end when linking 2 gen2 play 5s

A single gen2 play 5 seems to have more punch and clarity of bass than when I link two of them in a stereo pair

I'm sure it's to do with phasing and speaker placement (they are about 4m apart at the moment and to be honest I haven't fiddled round with that) - but equally I kind of assumed true play would sort that, but this happens before and after true play

Anyone else had this?

Audio is very subjective and depends on many local factors. Not something i have detected in my setup.
Move the speakers so they're next to one another. Stand them vertically. Unpair them and group them instead. Play music, alternately muting and un-muting one of the speakers. If there's less bass when both are playing then something's wrong and you should contact Sonos Support. It would suggest that a bass drive unit could have been wired incorrectly.

I have not experienced this with my setup. It could be a phasing issue. Try changing the distance between your speakers.
