About the Sonos Amp

More power, more possibilities

Do you love the convenient streaming capabilities of Sonos, but want to use your own speakers? The Connect:Amp was the go-to solution for that scenario for years. Now, the new Sonos Amp has even more to offer.

More power, more possibilities

Do you love the convenient streaming capabilities of Sonos, but want to use your own speakers? The Connect:Amp was the go-to solution for that scenario for years. Now, the new Sonos Amp has even more to offer.

With 125 watts per channel, it has more than double the power of its predecessor. It will easily power a pair of bookshelf speakers in your office, towers in the living room, or outdoor speakers on the deck. It's also a great solution for those architectural speakers in your wall or ceiling.

Music and more — anywhere you want it

Connect your disc player or turntable with a built-in phono preamp to the Amp to enjoy vinyl or CDs — not only on the connected speakers, but also throughout the house, wherever you have a Sonos player. The Amp's HDMI input means the same thing goes for your TV's audio.

Top of Sonos Amp with a circle-in-square design

Sonos wanted the Amp to be a visual representation of music, so its circle-in-a-square design is reminiscent of turntables, records, and CDs.

And like all Sonos products, the Amp works seamlessly with a host of streaming music services, including Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL. You also have access to thousands of radio stations with TuneIn and iHeartRadio. And if you subscribe to SiriusXM, you can listen to all your favorite programming on any Sonos player in your system.

Want to pick up where you left off in your audiobook or podcast? You can do that, too. 

Easy app control

You can use your smartphone or tablet to control any and all Sonos components in your system. Download the free app to turn your mobile device into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.

Compatible with AirPlay 2

The Sonos Amp has AirPlay® 2 built in. That means you can stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your Sonos system. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies.

And if you subscribe to Apple Music®, you can do even more. Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 4K to control Apple Music with voice commands. Tell it what selection or playlist to play — and which Sonos speakers you want it to play through.

Back of Sonos Amp

Sonos will work on your existing Wi-Fi® network. Or, you can connect the Amp to your network router, and Sonos will create its own dedicated wireless network for even better performance.

Installation tips

When you're running speaker wire (not included) from the Sonos Amp inside your home to the speakers outside, wall plates can help keep your installation neat and tidy. We recommend a dual-speaker "strap" with a decorative wall plate, or a convenient in-wall cable access port.

Integrated Amplifier Section

125W x 2Ch Amplifier: The Sonos Amp features a built-in state-of-the-art Class D amplifier that can power large or small speakers so you can enjoy superior audio in practically any room. Packing 125 watts per channel into 8Ω or 250 watts per channel into 4Ω, the Sonos Amp powers even the most demanding speakers. And because the Amp is 4Ω stable, you can even power up to four speakers instead of just two (or even six of the Sonos by Sonance speakers). Use the Amp to power your bookshelf, floor-standing, in-wall, and in-ceiling speakers. Thanks to its centralized heatsink, air inlets, and a discrete output stage, the Sonos Amp is built to stay cool and deliver lasting power.

  • The Sonos Amp can drive a pair of loudspeakers with a nominal impedance above 4Ω or two pair of 8Ω loudspeakers wired in parallel. Do not wire speakers in series to the integrated amplifier because it will result in poor sound quality. Do not connect speakers rated at less than 4Ω.
  • In particular, you can power up to three pair of Sonos by Sonance speakers (sold separately). The Sonos Amp does not support connection of three pair of loudspeakers from other brands.

Applications: The Sonos Amp offers flexibility and can be used in a variety of applications. Connect your favorite bookshelf, floorstanding, in-wall, or in-ceiling speakers to the Amp and stream all your favorite music.

  • Connect the Sonos Amp to a pair of loudspeakers for 2ch stereo to listen to network audio and a connected line-level source.
  • Use the Amp to add stereo sound to your TV through a HDMI ARC connection and a pair of loudspeakers.
  • Use the Sonos Amp with a pair of loudspeakers to add surround sound, if you already have a Sonos home theater speaker - such as the Sonos Arc / Playbar / Playbase / Beam / Beam (Gen 2) / or another Sonos Amp connected to your TV.
  • Create a multiroom audio system by connecting two pair of 8Ω of loudspeakers or three pair of Sonos by Sonance speakers (all sold separately)

Dual Mono Mode: The Sonos Amp may optionally output dual-channel monaural sound instead of traditional stereo. Monaural sound is sometimes preferred over stereo for more even sound coverage in some situations (such as large or irregularly shaped areas with multiple listening positions and/or more than one pair of speakers). When in this mode, the same monaural audio signal is sent to both the left & right speaker outputs.

Optimized Sound: Sonos and Sonance have designed Sonos by Sonance in-ceiling, in-wall, and outdoor loudspeakers (all sold separately) from the ground up, making them specifically optimized for the Sonos Amp through the use of TruePlay Tuning and the Sonos app on your compatible Apple iOS device.

  • Sonace By Sonance: When Sonos by Sonance speakers are connected to the Sonos Amp, the Amp will automatically detect them, and automatically adjust its sound to suit the specific loudspeakers. Up to three pairs of Sonos Architectural by Sonance speakers can be powered by a single Sonos Amp.
  • Trueplay Tuning (for Apple iOS Only): By connecting the in-ceiling speakers to the Sonos Amp, you'll unlock Trueplay Tuning (for Apple iOS), which accounts for the size, construction, and layout of the room where the speakers are installed and adjusts for the best possible sound. The layout of a room, and where speakers are installed, can have a significant impact on the sound that you hear. Trueplay, an auto-tune app within the Sonos App, uses the microphone in your Apple iOS 7.0+ device to measure how sound reflects off walls, furnishings and other surfaces in a room, and then fine tunes the in-ceiling speakers to make sure it sounds great no matter where you've placed it.

Note: The Sonos Amp will work with most loudspeakers. However, you will not be able to take advantage of the Trueplay room tuning capabilities with any other brand of loudspeaker, other than the Sonos by Sonance speakers.

Sonos Wireless Multiroom Audio Eco-System: The Amp is part of the Sonos wireless multiroom audio eco-system consisting of a family of wireless network speakers, players, and amplifiers. Start with a single Sonos product and add more Sonos products over time. With multiple zones, you can play the same or different songs in different rooms of your home. Compatible distributed audio sources include internet radio, online music services, local network music libraries, as well as hardwired inputs. Up to 32 Sonos devices and 16 groups can be connected in one system. The Sonos Amp is compatible with the new Sonos S2 operating system (OS) and the older Sonos S1 operating system (OS).

  • Sonos S2 OS Compatible Products: The Sonos Five, One SL, Roam, ARC, Sub (Gen 3), and any Sonos products released after May 2020 will only be compatible with Sonos S2.
  • Sonos S2 and S1 OS Compatible Products: The Sonos Play:1, Play:3, Play:5 (Gen 2), Playbase, Playbar, Connect (Gen 2), Connect:Amp (Gen 2), One (Gen 1/2), Beam, Amp, Port, Boost, Move, and Sub (Gen 1/2) support both Sonos S2 and S1 operating systems.
  • Sonos S1 OS Compatible Products: The Sonos CR200 Controller, Zone Player, Bridge, Connect (Gen 1), Connect: Amp (Gen 1), and Play: 5 (Gen 1) will only support the older S1 operating system.


  • If you have both, older "legacy" Sonos products and newer Sonos products in your system, you have the option to create two separate eco-systems - one that will be controlled with the older Sonos S1 controller app and the other that will be controlled by the newer Sonos S2 controller app.
  • Click here for more information regarding Sonos "Legacy" S1 versus the new Sonos S2 Operating System and App.

Custom Speaker Outputs: A pair of binding-post terminals provide connection of your speaker wire (up to 10AWG). The binding-posts are removable and pull-out to expose speaker terminals that will accept banana plugs (single only). You can connect two 4Ω speakers, four 8Ω speakers, or even six of the Sonos by Sonance speakers.

Mono-Sub Out: The integrated amplifier features a mono-RCA output for connecting a powered subwoofer (with an LFE or line-level input) and will automatically detect when a cable is connected to the subwoofer output. Then from the Sonos app, you can adjust the subwoofer output's volume level and low-pass crossover frequency (between 50-110Hz).

Note: If the Sonos Amp is being used to power surrounds speakers for a compatible Sonos Soundbar, the Amp's mono-RCA sub output will be disabled.

Mounting Options: You can place the Sonos Amp just about anywhere - in an electronics rack, on a shelf, on a credenza with your TV, or wall-mounted using a proprietary bracket (sold separately). On a shelf or table-top, mount the integrated amplifier horizontally with a least 3" of clearance around the unit. The Amp will also work perfectly in a rack-mount system. Two Amps will fit side by side in a 2U rack shelf, while four Amps will fit in a 3U rack shelf (side by side & stacked). Using a proprietary wall-mount bracket the Sonos Amp hangs vertically on the wall.

AC Power: The Sonos Amp comes with a detachable 6.5' AC power cord that will plug into the back of the integrated amplifier and into and AC power outlet or surge protector (sold separately).

Two Ways to Connect Wirelessly: In order to enjoy internet radio, online music services, your local network music libraries and Apple AirPlay 2, you'll need to connect the Sonos Amp to your home's wireless network router and ISP (internet service provider). Sonos brings your great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project through WiFi or its SonosNet mesh network.

  • WiFi Wireless Network: Sonos can also operate over your home's existing WiFi network (802.11 b/g/n; 2.4GHz). Because you are connecting wirelessly to your home's existing WiFi network, you do not need to hardwire a Sonos Boost to your router/modem. The Sonos system's wireless range will be dependent on your home's existing WiFi network. Sonos products manufactured after March 2014 are loaded with the proper firmware and ready to go out of the box for WiFi connectivity. All Sonos products manufactured prior to that date will require a wired connection to facilitate a firmware upgrade and hereafter they will be able to work over WiFi.
  • SonosNet Wireless Mesh Network: Sonos can utilize its own SonosNet proprietary wireless mesh network technology to provide superior wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensure synchronous music playback, and avoid sources of wireless interference. The transmitting range of the Sonos wireless system is approximately 100', depending upon your home's layout. In addition to the Sonos Amp, you will need a Sonos Boost (sold separately) connected to your network router/modem via a Ethernet cable.
  • You cannot connect the Sonos system via both the SonosNet proprietary mesh network and WiFi; you will need to choose one. Sonos recommends using its proprietary SonosNet wireless mesh network over WiFi when applicable.
  • The Sonos proprietary mesh network will provide a more secure wireless connection with fewer interruptions for optimum performance.
  • WiFi is subject to greater interference from other WiFi and 2.4GHz devices on your network.
  • WiFi connectivity is not compatible with 5GHz (you will have to use the Sonos wireless mesh network in this case).

Ethernet Port (10/100 Mbps): In addition to its built-in SonosNet Wireless Mesh Network and WiFi, the Sonos Amp is also equipped with one Ethernet port (10/100 Mbps). Use it to wire directly to your router to operate Sonos if WiFi is unstable, or use the Ethernet port to provide Internet accessibility to non-wireless devices if you're using a SonosNET Boost setup.

Music Libraries: Sonos supports playback of music from any computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device on your home network where you have shared music folders. Sonos can play music stored on up to 16 PCs, Macs or NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices on your home network, supporting the most popular audio formats.

HDMI ARC: The Sonos Amp is equipped one HDMI ARC output to connect the integrated amplifier to your TV's HDMI ARC input. The Amp's HDMI ARC output allows audio from your TV to be sent to the integrated amplifier. The HDMI ARC output supports Dolby Digital, DTS, and 2ch PCM. Some televisions will only pass 2ch PCM through the ARC-enabled HDMI input from devices connected to the TV via HDMI or analog, and will only pass Dolby Digital or DTS via the TV's built-in tuner, network apps, or USB. Audio from your TV can be played back just on the Sonos Amp or in any zone of your Sonos multiroom audio system.

Note: If your TV does not have a HDMI ARC input, but does have an optical (toslink) digital output, an HDMI-to-optical digital adapter (sold separately) is available directly from Sonos. The HDMI-to-optical digital adapter features a female HDMI connector on one end to slip on to a HDMI cable's male connector and a male optical (toslink) connector on the other end to plug into your TV's optical digital output (you cannot use a dedicated optical digital cable with the Sonos Amp). This type of connection will still support Dolby Digital, DTS, and 2ch PCM.

Analog Input: The Sonos Amp is equipped with a set of stereo analog RCA inputs for connecting an external line-level audio device, such as a CD or SACD player (sold separately). You can also connect a turntable which features a built-in phono-preamp or a turntable with an external phono-preamp (all sold separately). Audio from the external source can be played back just on the Sonos Amp or in any zone of your Sonos multiroom audio system.

Note: The stereo analog RCA inputs are disabled when using the Sonos Amp to power a pair of surround speakers in combination with a compatible Sonos soundbar.

Intuitive Control

Sonos S2 App: Sonos S2 is a new app (for Apple iOS 14.0+ / Android OS 8.0+ / Fire OS 7.0+ / Mac OSX 10.11+ / Windows 8+) that powers the next generation of Sonos products. The Sonos S2 app offers new features, usability updates, and more personalization moving forward.

  • The Sonos Amp is also compatible with the older Sonos S1 Controller app, if you have older Sonos "legacy" gear already in your home.
  • Some older Sonos products ("legacy" products) will not support the advances of the S2 app due to their memory and processing power. If you own any of these products, you can continue to use your system as you do today. See System Requirements for more details.

Sonos Voice Control: Using a voice-capable Sonos speaker (like the Sonos One - sold separately), you can operate the Sonos Amp with Sonos Voice Control. Sonos Voice Control was created purely for listening on Sonos and delivers fast, accurate hands-free control of your music and your Sonos system with privacy. With Sonos Voice Control, you can use voice requests to control Sonos products in your system. You can even ask Sonos Voice for multiple things on multiple Sonos products at once. Sonos Voice Control finds the music you want to listen to by processing requests entirely on the device for faster response times and effortless follow-ups. All you need is one "Hey Sonos" and you can follow up without the need for additional wake-words. Just like the Sonos app, you can control music and speakers in any room, easily play music around the home, save and like your favorite songs to your personal music library, and more.

  • Music Control: Use Sonos Voice Control to play songs, artists, albums, playlists, genres, and more from select music services (including Sonos Radio, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, and Pandora).

  • Home Theater Control: Sonos Voice can also be used to turn your compatible Sonos soundbar and HDMI-ARC connected TV on or off, as well as switch between Night and Speech enhancement modes.
  • Total Privacy: Designed with privacy at its core, Sonos Voice Control processes requests entirely on the device. No audio or transcript is sent to the cloud, stored, listened to, or read by other parties.


  • The Sonos Amp is not equipped with it own built-in microphone and requires a separate voice-capable Sonos speaker (like the Sonos One; sold separately) in order use Sonos Voice Control.
  • Click here for a more comprehensive list of Sonos Voice controls.
  • Make sure your Sonos device has the latest firmware/software update installed.

Works with Alexa & Google Assistant: You can control your Sonos system through any Alexa or Google Assistant enabled device (including the Sonos One, Amazon Echo, and Google Home - all sold separately). Specific control functions will vary by digital voice assistant.

  • Amazon Alexa: You can ask Alexa to play music on a specific Sonos device in an specific room of your home from these featured music services (Apple Music, Amazon Music, TuneIn, Pandora, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, & Spotify). Using the Alexa app, you can group your Sonos products and your Alexa-enabled devices together. This makes it easier for Alexa to control your Sonos products based on which room or area they are in. You can pause, resume, and skip songs, as well as change the volume with all Sonos compatible online music services. Click here for more information regarding Amazon Alexa on Sonos.
  • Google Assistant: You can ask Google to play music on a specific Sonos device in an specific room of your home from these featured music services (Spotify, YouTube Music, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio). You can pause, resume, and skip songs, as well as change the volume with all Sonos compatible online music services. Click here for more information regarding Google Assistant on Sonos.
  • The Sonos Amp does not have a built-in microphone for voice control. A separate Alexa or Google Assistant enabled device is required and sold separately for voice control.
  • You can only configure your Sonos system to work with one digital voice assisant; choose either Alexa or Google Assistant (you cannot use both). You will need to search and enable the Sonos skill from the Alexa or Google Home app on your mobile device or computer. Your Sonos equipment and Amazon Alexa-enabled devices must be on the same wireless network.
  • Sonos and Alexa or Google Assistant work together using a single Amazon or Google account. If you have a second Sonos system in another location, you'll need to use a second Amazon or Google account if you'd like to use Alexa. An Amazon or Google account can only be in use on one Sonos system at a time.

Front-Panel Controls: There are touch-sensitive controls across the front-panel of the Sonos Amp. These controls included Volume Up/Down, Play/Pause, and Previous/Next Track. There is also an IR (infrared) sensor on the front-panel that receives signals sent by a programmable IR remote control (not included and sold separately).

HDMI CEC: The Sonos Amp does not come with a remote, but does offer HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronic Control) compatibility so you can control basic functions of the amplifier from your HDMI ARC connected TV's remote. Basic functions include Power On/Off, Volume Up/Down, and Mute. HDMI CEC will not work if the Sonos Amp is connected via the optional Sonos HDMI-to-optical digital adapter (sold separately).

Automatic Updates: The Sonos Amp supports free automatic software updates so you will always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Simply register the One and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available through the Sonos Controller app. By simply pressing one button your system updates itself. The Sonos Amp must be connected to your home network and the internet for automatic software updates.

System Requirements

Internet Service Provider: You'll need a high-speed, wired internet service provider connection such as cable, fiber, or DSL. Wireless internet connections such as satellite, mobile hotspots, or 4G LTE routers can experience delays between the internet connection and Sonos and are not supported. Using these types of connections can cause music to not play, skip, or cut out completely.

Network Requirements: Sonos can be configured in either a wireless or wired network setup. This article will cover the differences between the two setups and provide recommendations for which setup best suits your system and home network.

  • Wired Setup: A Sonos system operating in a wired setup will require one of your Sonos products to remain connected to the router via Ethernet cable at all times. If your Sonos system is in a wired setup and you use a WiFi mesh router with multiple wireless nodes, we recommend wiring your Sonos product directly to the primary wired mesh node. Avoid wiring any Sonos products to the wireless mesh nodes. If you are on a corporate or advanced network, it must not block Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).
  • WiFi Setup: All Sonos products can connect to wireless routers or access points that support 802.11b/g WiFi over 2.4GHz. Additionally, all Sonos products can connect to WiFi networks that use WPA1 and WPA2 Personal security standards, as well as unsecured WiFi networks. When running S2 software, many newer Sonos products support faster WiFi modes (including 802.11ac) and will connect to them when possible. You can learn more about which Sonos products support which WiFi modes, standards, and protocols in this article.

Notes: Unsupported network setups and devices include -

  • Wireless internet connections such as satellite, mobile hotspots, or LTE routers
  • Guest networks or networks that use a portal login page
  • Networks using wireless range extenders2
  • Ethernet over Power (EOP) devices
  • WPA/WPA2 Enterprise


Sonos S2 Controller App: Sonos offers a Sonos Controller app for for Apple iOS 14.0+, Android OS 8.0+, Fire 7.0+Mac OSX 10.11+, and Windows 8+. The Sonos S2 is a new app and operating system (OS) that powers the next generation of products and experiences. In addition to new features, usability updates, and more personalization moving forward, Sonos S2 enables higher resolution audio technologies for music and home theater.

  • Sonos Controller App Requirements: A compatible Apple iOS or Android device running the Sonos Controller app is required to set up a new Sonos system or add new products. Sonos also supports macOS and Windows versions of the Sonos Controller App, but certain system management features such as setting up a new Sonos system or adding new products, are not available. See this article for more details.
  • Sonos Product Compatibility: Most Sonos products are compatible with S2. Some older Sonos "legacy" products will not support the advances of S2 due to their memory and processing power. The older Sonos "legacy" app is referred to as the Sonos S1 app. This article will break down which Sonos products are compatible with Sonos S2 vs S1.
  • Split Sonos System: If you have both, older "legacy" Sonos products and newer Sonos products, you have the option to create two separate eco-systems - one that will be controlled with the older Sonos S1 controller app and the other that will be controlled by the newer Sonos S2 controller app. Read this article for more details.

Supported Audio Formats: Sonos supports a variety of audio formats for its 2ch stereo products and multichannel home theater speakers.

  • Music Libraries: Sonos supports the playback of your own music library stored on a NAS drive or personal computer. Sonos supports compressed & uncompressed audio formats when streaming from your local music library. Sonos systems support mono (1-channel) or stereo (2-channel) audio files with sample rates up to 48kHz. Sonos music libraries are limited to 65,000 tracks. The memory limit can be reached prior to 65,000 tracks if there is a large amount of metadata. For example, classical music tracks tend to have a large amount of metadata and can use up the available memory before the 65,000 track limit is reached. If you have more than 65,000 tracks, you can use Plex with Sonos as an alternative.
  • Home Theater: Sonos home theater speakers are compatible with a wide range of television and movie soundtrack audio formats. Compatible audio formats will vary by Sonos home theater speakers and by connection method to your TV. While most TVs are compatible with Sonos home theater speakers, some may need additional configuration or may not work with Sonos. This article will describe some basic requirements when using Sonos speakers with your TV.

I have 5.1 passive speakers and want to run them wirelessly using 2 Sonos amps, fed via HDMI out of a home theater receiver. Is this possible?
david  Jan 07, 2024
1 answer
It would not be possible to use Sonos amps with a home theater receiver for the purpose of wireless surround sound. The only option that is close would be to eliminate the home theater receiver and use the HDMI ARC output of a television to send audio information into the Sonos Amp powering the front L/R speakers. You could then use the second Sonos Amp to power surround L/R speakers. Add a sub and you'll have a 4.1 system. There would be no capability for a center channel speaker in this configuration.

Thanks for your question, Derek. You can't use 4 Sonance speakers and 1 Polk speaker to the same Sonos Amp. You can do up to 6 Sonance speakers or 4 Polk Audio(or another brand of 8-ohm) speakers to one Sonos Amp.
andrea  May 31, 2023 (Staff)
I have an outdoor TV cabinet that I want to place a Sonos sound bar (either Arc or Beam2). If I pair it with the Sonos amp, what are the best options for achieving "true" (or close to "true") 5.1.2?
korey  Apr 05, 2023
1 answer
Greetings Korey, and thank you for your question. The Beam can do up to 5.1. The Arc can do 5.1.2 because it has up firing speakers. Of course you need some type of ceiling to have those up firing speakers reflect off, and if you dont have that, maybe you do the 5.1 Beam. The Sonos amp can be paired with either bar to run the outdoor rear speakers. Just remember the Beam, Arc, and amp are not rated for outdoors.

I have a WD NAS onto which I have burned my whole CD library. Can this Sonos Amp unit stream that music over my home WiFi setup?
cxhardy  Apr 03, 2023
1 answer
It can, Craig. Sonos supports playback of music from any computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device on your home network where you have shared music folders. Sonos can play music stored on up to 16 PCs, Macs or NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices on your home network, supporting the most popular audio formats. Sonos indexes your music folders so you can view your music collection by categories (such as artists, albums, composers, genres, or tracks). Make sure that your files are supported below: File Formats: Sonos supports the following audio file formats - MP3 (compressed), WMA (compressed), AAC (MPEG4), Ogg Vorbis, Audible (format 4), Apple Lossless, FLAC (lossless), WAV (uncompressed), and AIFF (uncompressed). Sampling Frequencies: Supported sampling rates include 16kHz, 22.5kHz, 24.0kHz, 32.0kHz, 44.1kHz, and 48kHz. Sonos amps are a great choice for flexibility, and they sound incredible!

have cerwin vega at-15 at 4 ohms speakers. can I use the sonos amp to use these safely and use a sonos arc also? thus using 3 total speakers, 2 passive cerwin vegas and 1 sonos arc?
mike s  Nov 13, 2022
1 answer
The Sonos Amp can accommodate a set of 4-ohm speakers, so there should be no issue with connecting your speakers. It would also be possible to use the speakers and Amp in conjunction with the Sonos Arc. Keep in mind that if you're using the Arc and Amp together to make a system for TV/movie viewing, the speakers connected to the Amp would only be able to act as rear surrounds. They cannot be assigned as front left/right channels. The Arc would perform the work of the center/left/right channels.
zachary  Nov 13, 2022 (Staff)
Is it possible to use this to power a passive non-Sonos subwoofer and pair it with a Sonos Arc?
yang  Sep 04, 2022
1 answer
Greetings Yang, and thank you for your question. Technically you can if your subwoofer can take both the left and right channels, and you group the amp along with the Arc it would work. But at what performance level? My guess, not at an optimum level, but it would get the same signals as the ARC.
hogan  Sep 04, 2022 (Staff)
Can we combine left and right signal after speakers to create a mono for a subwoofer (SAS 10" Marine powered w/ high level input)?
gary  Aug 06, 2022

As long as the high level inputs on the powered sub are capable of handling the output of this amplifier, then this should be possible.

I want to run this to two pairs of outdoor speakers with independent volume controls. will this work with 100W speaker volume controller or do I need the 300W one?
brads  Feb 14, 2022
1 answer
You should check with Sonos. I'm not sure what a volume controller is and their amp is 125 watts as far as I know. Each amp creates its own zone in the controller. You can control the volume in the entire zone, but you cannot set multiple volumes within a zone using the controller. You could connect four speakers to the amp (in parallel, not in series, which means you need separate runs to each of the speakers) and use an OEM volume controller (rheostat) somewhere near where the speakers are. Another limitation is that you won't be able to play different music within a single zone, so both sets of speakers will receive the same music. Another question is whether you should use 4 ohm rather than 8 ohm speakers in this configuration. You should really consider buying a separate amp for each pair of speakers to get the full value of Sonos. Or look into the stand alone speaker/amps. You could get two Sonos 1s for about $400 and configure them as a stereo pair.

I have the Sonos bean, a set of Sonos one sl, & a sub. Will this amp power the speakers wirelessly through the WiFi?
856jerzy  Jan 08, 2022
1 answer
Your other Sonos products have built in amplifiers, so they should not need an amp. If you are wanting to connect wirelessly to other WiFi speakers, I'm not sure, but I don't think so. I have my amp directly wired to my remote (non-Sonos) speakers. I think Sonos does sell speakers that connect wirelessly to Sonos amps though.

Can I hook up a Niles speaker selector to the Sonos Amp?
mary beth  Nov 25, 2021
3 answers
Yes you can connect a Niles speaker selector to a Sonos Amp. I have two Sonos Amps and both of them are connected to a Niles speaker selector, this allows me to turn off speakers that are not wanted and also adjust the volume to each speaker. I found this a cost effective way to control multiple speakers that are powered by one Sonos Amp.
dave  Nov 29, 2021
The Niles speaker selector simply splits the output of the stereo/amp so you can drive multiple pairs/zones of wired speakers. I run four zones on my Niles speaker selector. Set a reasonable volume on the source and then control the volume of each speaker zone with the Niles unit.
jeff  Nov 28, 2021
Defitely, but you'll still have to control it manually. We were rebuilding our house and had speaker volume controls in a few areas we knew would be served by the Sonos.

If you have music stored on a device such as a phone or computer, and it is connected to your Sonos network (your WiFi), then you can play through it. It does not have a specific port for a USB drive. I play music that is on my iPhone through my Sonos amp which powers a set of outdoor speakers.
brian  Aug 17, 2021
If I understand your are trying to play music off of your memory drive. The music will not play directly off the memory stick/box/hard drive. A computer, perhaps a tv, a newer stereo component. What you need is something that can read the music and can be connected to the amp via the usb

How would I connect 2 different recievers to play the same music? Example. I have a reciever in my home and a reciever outdoors for my Pool/outdoor living area. I want all speakers playing the same music indoors and out
rob  Jul 12, 2021
1 answer
Use the Sonos App. Once you have designated the areas where you have the speakers installed you can tell the app to play the same music or different music in each of those designated areas. The Sonos Amps can be hard wired together or connected by wifi. The Sonos App is the controlling connection in this case.
david l.  Jul 12, 2021
I currently have ARC connected to my TV via HDMI. I have a few older in wall speakers with wires that i now want to add to the sound solution. I know i can connect the speakers to the AMP, but how does it connect into the ARC for surround sound?
thomas  Jun 26, 2021
1 answer
I don't think it's possible to connect/coordinate ARC with AMP in such a way that the AMP would be feeding your wired in-wall speakers just the rear channels of surround sound. You might be able to set-up in a way that your wired speakers are replicating same sound as your ARC, but that's not really "surround" sound. You might also run into timing issues, with your wired speakers not completely in synch with the ARC.

This amplifier can power up to 2 sets of 8-ohm speakers safely. The speakers will play the same source, and will not be independently controllable via the Sonos amp.
thomas  Apr 21, 2020 (Staff)
I believe that you can. I did a quick search for that model and found the connection terminals that look standard for a native speaker wire connection so you should be all set. I have 7 of these that are driving in ceiling speakers (SpeakerCraft) throughout my home. This device has been stellar for me. Good luck... KR

You'll need to run speaker wire from the amp to the two speakers. However, I think Sonos now has outdoor speakers for which I believe you won't need the amp.
john  Apr 20, 2020
You need speaker wire from Sonos Amp to traditional style speakers.
adam  Apr 20, 2020
Sonos amp will require speaker wire as the amp needs to power the speakers. And the amp will be the only thing that will require 110. Otherwise get (2) Sonos one speakers and get Power (110) to each of those.

casey  Apr 20, 2020 (Staff)
The SONOS AMP product is a reliable and 100% HDMI/ARC-compatible device. I've installed six (6) of these in the last 9 months for LED and OLED TV audio playback solutions. My humble advice: Answer this question by downloading the user manual for your specific Marantz receiver product model from their website and carefully read the section about the receiver's Zone2 capability. Marantz is an excellent equipment manufacturer and their user manual documentation can be counted on to provide clear and concise information about the use-case that your asking about. If fact, you may realize that could be an easier solution to achieve what you need to do.
