Step-by-Step Connecting Sonos Subwoofer
So, here are the steps to help you connect the Sonos subwoofer. Follow the steps and connect the subs! Enjoying music isn’t tough!
Step 1: The Right Placement
First of all, you have to set the subwoofers in the right place and then add power to them. Once you have added power to it, you must ensure that one side of the slot is kept away from any obstruction.
At times, people position it vertically and keep it against the wall. If you do so, make sure the front opening is not blocked. For the horizontal placement on your room’s floor, keep the upper portion free from any obstacles; don’t keep anything on top of your subwoofers
Note: At times, you might want to set up a Sonos Home theatre speaker and sub together! Well, that’s very cool, and you can do it easily. For this, your first job is to set up the home theater speaker. Once it is done with the app, you can easily add the Sub while you are in the setup process.
