I am wanting to set a sonos sub up in a room where i have ceiling speaker connected to a sonos Amp.
The Amp is in a closet where I have a “home run” setup. It seems the Sub is too far from the AMP to get a signal from it in the room, I can move it to a different room, closer to the Amp and it will work.
Evidently the sub talks directly to whatever its paired to and not separately like other sonos speakers.
Is there any way to get a better signal to the Sub? current setup is WM:1

Welcome to the Sonos Community and thank you for reaching out with your set-up question.
Since the Sub communicates to its parent Sonos player via 5ghz, if the Sub is out of range of your Amp you will not be able to bond the two reliably if at all.
There are three options available to you from what I can understand of your set-up:
- You can opt to bond your Sonos Sub to a different product that is within 10-15 feet of the Sub.
- Relocate the Amp physically within 5g range of of the Sub and the ceiling speakers.
- Try wring the Sub to your network (I personally don’t like to recommend this) as this will put the Sub directly in network communication with your Amp.
I’d be interested to hear about which option works best for you and you can certainly submit a diagnostic report from your system if you have any difficulty. Include the confirmation number in your response and we will be happy to look this over for you.
