Using one Era 300 speaker as a back speaker in our home stereo set up

Hello. Running power to my upper back wall in our living room for 2 Era 300 speakers is going to be a bit of an issue. The back of the back wall is an upstairs bedroom so this prevents us from putting the electrical outlets where we want to without ripping out a lot of sheetrock. With that said, can I use only 1 Era 300 speaker for my back speaker and it upgrade my overall sound? It can be set in the middle of the upper back wall. Are there any limitations with configuring this type set up in the Sono App? Thanks in advance.

You must use a pair of Era 300s to set them up as surrounds in a Sonos home theater setup. You cannot add just one.

You could group one speaker, but you will likely experience a slight audio delay from the Era 300 when playing TV audio. Streaming music will be in sync though.

You can only bond two speakers (of the same model) as surrounds. 

You need two, surrounds can only be added in pairs. 

Thanks for the quick replies!
