For the large room: Play:5

Sonos Play:5

The Sonos Play:5 speaker with 6 built-in speakers is a large, powerful speaker. This makes this speaker suitable for large rooms. When you have a wide room, you can touch the Play:5 horizontally. This is how you create a wide sound image. If you place the speaker vertically, the sound will concentrate on 1 point. This is only recommended if you have multiple speakers in the room.

For medium and small rooms: One or Play:1

Sonos One

The Sonos One or the Play:1 speaker is suitable for small to medium-sized rooms. These speakers are rather compact, which means they don't take up much space. In addition, they have 2 built-in speakers that create sufficient volume for these spaces. Use 2 One or Play:1 speakers in a medium-sized room for stereo sound and higher volume.

For the bathroom, kitchen, or outside: One or Play:1

Sonos One

When you place a speaker in the bathroom, kitchen, or garden it's important that this speaker is moisture resistant. In addition, the speaker should not take up too much space. The Play:1 and the Play One speaker are suitable for this space. These speakers are moisture-resistant and have a compact format. Please note: the speakers are moisture-resistant, but not completely waterproof.

Multiple speakers in 1 room or 1 speaker in multiple rooms:

Multi-room system

Do you want to connect speakers to a soundbar or to multiple speakers in a large room? All Sonos speakers are suitable for this. The Play One and the Play:1 speakers are the most accessible as a multi-room speaker thanks to their compact size. Place 1 in every room of the house and connect them via the app.

A speaker for every room

Depending on the size of your room and the climate in the room, you can choose a Sonos speaker for your living space. A Play:5 is a suitable speaker for larger rooms. Medium-sized and smaller rooms need a One or Play:1 speaker. Do you want to place speakers in a small or damp room? If so, opt for the One. Do you want to use the multi-room function of Sonos in multiple rooms? This is possible with all speakers. Also keep in mind the size of your rooms.
