We have a SONOS ARC and SUB and it sounds amazing. Have some questions about how to integrate this for ATMOS with some architectural speakers? Like - how many AMPS will we need? And will this all work haha?
Here’s our setup and question/situation laid out in more detail, haha:
The house we bought/renovated came with 4 built in wall speakers perfectly placed for surround sound - 2 in the front, on either side of the TV (and about 10 feet apart, 2 feet above ear level, per Dolby). And 2 in the back - about 10 feet behind us, at ear level. Honestly, all pretty close to spec with what Dolby recommends when you go on their site. So that’s all good.
On Black Friday, I found 4 SONOS in-wall speakers to replace these - as the ones we had are third party, and I know Truplay won’t work unless you use the SONANCE, yeah? So we’re going to get these installed. So that’s the first question - to have these work with the ARC and SUB, do we need one AMP or two AMPs? Ive seen several posts in the forums that suggest TWO. One for the front two. And a second for the back two. Can anyone confirm?
Second, we have two in-ceiling speakers that we got for the basement, but never used. And now I’d love to “fold” these into this setup, and add them as our ATMOS overheads. Is this possible? And if so, would this require a THIRD amp?
That’s it. Really just trying to figure out how to best incorporate this great SOUND BAR with the architectural speakers we already have. My wife isn’t a fan of speakers on stands in the room (honestly neither am I), so just trying to make this as clean as possible.
Also - all equipment would be in the same room. And anything can be connected CAT-6 if needed.
