I've been a loyal customer so long that I'm still using the 100 controllers (over 10 years). Sonos has rolled out a whole lot of very impressive products during that time. That said, the one glaring omission are outdoor speakers (with the built in amplifier to tie into your Sonos network). It would seem to be a very easy solution, and I'm still baffled that there have been no products launched for those of us who like to have music outside!
Sonos...I Beg You For Outdoor Speakers!

Of course, anyone who has a receiver setup with a Sonos connect could likely run wired outdoor speakers to a zone 2 and get sonos outside that way.
Either way, the Connect:AMP works great for outdoor speakers and can even power an outdoor sub like the one Polk Audio makes.
Exactly. Even a Connect to an amp of some sort will work. I've been running this way for over six years. People that don't do this because they're waiting for an outdoor speaker are missing out.
Agreed. I have used a Bose 251 pair outside for over ten years now, powered by a stereo amp. It was a simple matter to incorporate into Sonos by adding a Connect. Even if I was buying today, a outdoor speaker needing a power socket - or two - would be inconvenient.
From experience, soffit mounted speakers aimed downwards tend to annoy the neighbours less!
Yes, I agree and it's sad that there is no response on this. And YES, to everyone who is about to tell me how wonderful it is to use a Connect:AMP to drive any imaginable wired speaker, I'm NOT INTERESTED. I want Sonos to take all the same expertise they put into making a home speaker and make a wireless outdoor speaker. Not interested in wires, not interested in extra boxes, etc. So, please, that's not the point of this post. I am echoing John's request - OUTDOOR WIRELESS SPEAKERS PLEASE!
If that remains the case, using the EQ in the controller to tweak the sound is all you can do.
If a second hand one comes up cheap enough could be an interesting project!.
