Where to place Ceiling Speakers for Sonos powered by Sonos Connect AMP.
If you plan to spend a lot of time in a room listening to music, rather than using music as pleasant background sound then investing some time planning your speaker locations is a good idea. Try to place the speakers at least 2 feet away from corners and other surfaces that might interfere with or reflect sound, such as tall or bulky furniture.
If you’re installing 2 ceiling speakers for stereo listening:
For a good stereo effect, place the left and right speakers an equal distance from your prime listening position, and (if possible) aim the tweeters toward your seat. For example, if the speakers are 10 feet from your chair, place them no more than 10 feet apart from each other and no less than 5 feet apart. Measure the distance from the speakers to your chair in a level, horizontal line — i.e. don’t measure upwards from your seat to the speakers in the ceiling.
For listening to music from in-wall and ceiling speakers it goes without saying that generally the more you spend on your speakers the higher the performance quality (clarity) and quantity (power handling). In-wall, on-wall, and in-ceiling speakers can do a great job with the highs and mids, to get a good delivery of low frequencies, and a full range sound we recommend models with an 8” driver or 6.5” as a minimum.
Try to keep speakers about 2 feet away from corners and other surfaces that might interfere with or reflect sound, such as tall or bulky furniture.
For rectangular rooms of less than 300 square feet, two speakers should suffice. Place them near opposite corners.
For L-shaped rooms, or for rectangular rooms larger than 300 square feet, use 3 or more speakers. Stagger them across the space for good sound dispersion. If you do end up using an odd number of speakers, stereo input single speakers can be a good choice.
For a narrow, long room, place the speakers at either end. (Wall speakers can go either at the ends themselves, or on an adjacent wall.) Stereo input speakers are a good solution for this relatively awkward space.
When your décor or budget won’t allow more than two speakers in a large room, try to place left and right stereo speakers near (but at least 2 feet away from) the corners, or at far ends of the room, to better disperse the sound.
(A) Diagonal placement gives good coverage in a typical rectangular room of 300 square feet or less. (B) Use three or more speakers in a large or L-shaped room. (C) In a narrow room, place the speakers in the middle at either end. In this example, stereo-input speakers would be a great choice.
Speaker placement in rooms you’ll be entertaining in, such as a dining room:
Avoid surfaces in the room that will reflect sound in a disruptive way. For example, if you place a ceiling-mounted speaker directly over your dining room table, the sound may reflect upward off the table and interfere with conversation.
Ceiling speaker placement in your bathroom:
If you want to install speakers in your bathroom, stereo single ceiling speakers are a great way to go. One stereo input speaker plays both channels of stereo music with one woofer and two tweeters; they’re great for small rooms or larger awkwardly shaped areas. Depending on the size and layout of your bathroom, you may want to use more than one. For example, if your bathroom is relatively large, placing a stereo-input speaker above the sink and one above the bathtub will ensure you can follow that morning’s news, even during noisier activities like brushing your teeth or showering.
