Hi, I have a Sonos Arc which has been situated above an ethanol fireplace (i.e. not as much heat as regular or gas fire) and I’m curious to know please:

1 - heat tolerance of Sonos Arc? Are there any guidelines? 

2 - from the picture, does this seem like an appropriate distance?

3 - are there any solutions you can suggest if necessary? 

Thanks

Your Arc seems to be slightly set in, so perhaps any heat will not heat it directly.

From https://www.sonos.com/support/en-us/sonos-user-guide/index.html#t=sonos-user-guide%2Farc%2Fwallmountarc.htm%23TOC_Specifications4bc-1&rhsearch=ARC&rhsyns=%20&rhtocid=_0_2_6_6:

 

Operating Temperature

32° F to 104° F (0° C to 40° C)

Storage Temperature

-4° F to 122° F (-20° C to 50° C)

I think that the TV would be more fragile than ARC and certainly the TV and stone face would suffer more from smoke.

I wouldn’t worry if the fireplace is properly installed, operated, and maintained.
