This article discusses how to add your speakers to an existing system. If you are taking your speaker to another location that does not have an existing Sonos system in place, these instructions will not apply to you. In that case, you can simply set up a new Sonos system. How do we get your speakers added to another system? Say, at a friend or family member’s house.This is a fairly straightforward process and should not take too long. Sonos products can remember the credentials for up to 16 wireless networks. When you bring your device home, it will automatically reconnect to your WiFi network. This is unless you Factory Reset your Sonos device, which we do not recommend. Things you will need before you get started: The WiFi password of this “new” network. The network needs to have an existing Sonos system set up already. You will need to have the owner of this system’s Sonos account information at hand. The steps to take: Connect your mobile device (that has the Sonos app insta
Sonos skill WAS enabled in Alexa but don’t recall any account linking taking placeSo following suggestion's found on here I have subsequently Disabled the Sonos skill and re-Enabled itThat triggers the re linking, prompted to sign into Sonos account, now says accounts are linked closing that screen, next screen is search for device But reports “Alexa couldn’t find a new device to connect”Asks if I can control device using Sonos app - Yes I can - it tries to connect again - fails again and again Found the suggestion on here about changing the Sonos Play:1 name and going thru whole process again - still no joy ( tried multiple names/times ) Any other suggestions please ?

HiI currently have a Playbar, Play:5 (Gen 2) stereo pair and Sub (Gen 2) in my TV room plus a single Play: 3 in my study. I am wanting to add speakers to my kitchen dining room which is medium size. Can I add a second stereo pair of Play:5 (Gen 2) to my system and should I get a second sub? The music quality is more important to me than the TV and movies, hence I don’t think moving the speakers to the kitchen diner and updating the TV room to Arc plus compatible speakers. I don’t watch action type movies, more Romcoms so I think the Atmos might be wasted on me. Happy to be corrected on this though 😊
There appears to be no setting to disable sound effects for touch controls on the Move so when adjusting the volume of the output, you get a disturbing beep for each tap. The volume of the beep is tied to the volume of the device so the louder the volume, the louder the beep which is distracting given that it plays over the intended audio. There are a couple of closed posts on this topic from >1y ago (indicating that this also affects other products than the Move) with an answer that says Sonos will refer it to their engineers. Sonos, can something be done about this seemingly pointless (to me) function to at least handover control of it to the user?
HiI have a double space living room , at one end of the room where the tv is i have a beam, sub and 2 x ones and I want to add an era 300 in the other end of the room. Will that work for playing all tv sound and music and adding a turntable to the era 300?Thanks
Hello Sonos Community, I purchased three total Era 300s, two of which I setup as a stereo pair in my living room. I would like to connect the third one to the stereo pair, and set it in a different room, but have it playing the same music as the stereo pair. Is this possible? Or can only two Era 300s connect and play the same music at once? Thank you!
From my experience, the best Sound Experience requires an initial phase of “breaking in” the Speakers to expand the ranges and to develop the sound Maturity.Is this recommended for Sonos products? (i.e. Running very dynamic bass and challenging treble albums in repeat to open up the Sound Range & Spectrum)Any suggestions in this regard as well? Thanks!
Hi all Good people. During Black Week the Sub mini was down around $100 and i was able to get one.First i add it to my livingroom downstairs along with the Playbase&Ikea BS. I try different placement and try multiple Truplay-runs. Sound was like ok,but nothing more. I really enjoy this room even without the Sub mini. I think Playbase is a great soundbar. Anyway…. Then i moved the Sub mini upstairs and integrade it with the Beam Gen2& Era 100…and i got a Ikea BS stereopair as well. The Sub mini is placed in the front corner of the room. Let me say it like this: the Sub mini outplay Gen3 by far….i’m in LOVE. The tight punch,the dynamic…just WOW. Yes,i’m talking bout performance with Music,not TV/Film/Movies. Just pure enjoyable music. And the size….to be honest,i thought the Sub mini was a small unit….it’s not. It’s somehow bigger than i imagine.I have not watch any movies,only Youtube,and the sound is good(enough). I probobly gonna watch some films in the near future,but i think
I just updated my system to S2 v15.1 and my Gen2 subwoofer failed (my Sonos1, Playbar, Amp2 all updated fine). I tried resetting, reconnecting, rebootng and nothing worked. I called tech support and they went thru the same steps, said it was likely a fault. They cannot “see” the sub on their end and offered an RMA #. Now I have to buy a new subwoofer “at a discount”, which will still cost me more than $600. Is there anything beside 1) restarting the sub (white flashing light doesn’t go green), resetting to factory default (orange/white flashing light doesn’t go green), rebooting by Boost, rebooting my router, that I can do on my end?
Hi, I recently bought my first Sonos speaker (Sonos 5) and I’ve plugged it into my Echo Dot (via a double-ended 3.5 cable) so I can hear Alexa and use her to play Spotify Premium. It seems to work well. I'm now thinking of adding a sub and a couple of Sonos 1's, but before I do wanted to check whether these additional speakers will also 'connect' to Alexa and play nice. Obviously, only the 5 will be wired to the Echo, but will it send the audio it receives from the Echo to the additional speakers?If the answer is no, then perhps one of the Sonos 1's I get should be the model with Alexa built-in, in order to get Alexa to play Spotify to the group? In fact, I suspect this setup would likely be better than wiring to an Echo?Justin checking before I add more speakers and find out it won’t work with Spotify/Alexa to void disappointment.Many thanks!
hello, I would like to purchase a pair of sonos era 100 but for the moment I do not have a fixed internet connection (with a box), but I use my smartphone to share a connection. My question is whether I will be able to turn it on which requires a Wi-Fi connection to share with my smartphone?thank you in advance for your feedback
I currently only have one Sonos beam & had a couple of questions regarding streaming music.Is there a rule of thumb on how much data streaming music will use per hour? When I add a satellite (or more), will they all share that one data stream, assuming they’re all synchronized to play the same thing? Are any of the streaming services better than others in terms of bit rate, or is that even an option?thanks!
I know this sounds trivial but I’m having trouble connecting a Play 5 with my S1 app. It was disconnected during troubleshooting trying to get my existing S1 system speakers to work with the new S2 because I just got a Beam Gen 2. It is the only holdout - it can’t work with the S2 but it is now disconnected and so I need to get my S1 app to recognize it. Currently, it has an ethernet cable connected to it and is powered on. In the S1 app (after I reset it) I get the option to set up a new Sonos system, or connect to an existing system. I choose connect to existing system, and then get “Use Sonos S2 app” or more options menu which essentially lead me full circle back to resetting the app. My conclusion is that SONOS wants me to have a “new” app (new credentials to log in) to the S1 app. Nothing seems to be working. Would it be appropriate to simply unplug the existing S2 devices in the house and then try to connect my Play 5 to an existing system? Fooling the S1 into thinking t
Long time sonos user.I recently bought an Era 300.I almost listen to music on my sonos except for the playbar connected to my TV (Philips).I was kind of disappointed by the Era 300 for music, however I plan to by a 2nd one for stereo. I feel the Era 300 is missing bass.Do you think adding a sub gen 3 will enhanced the listening experience ?Thanks for your answer.
Hi all. I bought the Sonos sub with the notion of placing under my couch (foolishly without measuring) and it won’t fit. I can place it in a cupboard in my built in TV unit. Wife hates the look of it so this is my only shot. Would this be pointless or ineffective? Is it supposed to be on the ground? Would the sun being placed in a piece of wooden furniture sound terrible or vibrations that would diminish my sound system? Units not test installed so I can’t test and secondly as it is still in its packaging I may be better off returning the item. thanks.
