Planing my new house setup

So,  I currently own 1 playbar which i love and enjoying for years.

In 2 months i’m moving to a new house.

That house has 4 in celing cables ready for in celing speaker installation in the living room, plus 2 more in the kitchen and 2 more cables for the back yard/patio.


The Kitchen and patio are easy dessisions.

But what about the living room, should I go with:

  1. 4.1 in celing setup running on 1 amp  + sub
  2. New ARC + 2 in celings for surround  +sub

Pics of  the living room for inspiration:

Hi @Aviry.

Thanks for reaching out.

Hope you're excited to move into your new house, the two options you preferred are actually great.

I just have a concern where are you going to put the Sonos ARC in your living room, Yes Sonos Arc is our top product so far with regards to home theater speakers.

Sonos arc includes upward-firing speaker drivers that act as height channels, reflecting sound off your ceiling for additional dimension, it might have a collision with your in-ceiling speakers if the ARC is near to your in-ceiling speakers.

I think it’s still advisable to go with 4.1 in-ceiling setup running on 1 amp  + sub if ever you will also put your Playbar as part of your living room.

Also, some of the community members might provide their own opinion about this.
