Sonos has unveiled Sonos Architectural by Sonance, a collection of custom install passive speakers for indoor and outdoor use, designed for Sonos Amp in partnership with Sonance.

The in-wall and in-ceiling models will ship later this month, with outdoor models following in April. “Our goal was to create a solution optimized for installers, bringing the Sonos experience to architectural speakers for the first time,” explains Sonos CEO Patrick Spence.“

When paired with Sonos Amp, the In-Ceiling and In-Wall speakers’ unique hardware signature unlocks Trueplay which accounts for the size, construction, and furnishings of the room where the speakers are placed, and automatically adjusts the EQ for optimal sound. The Outdoor speaker features a weatherproof design and is engineered to withstand a wide variety of environmental conditions.

"We’re excited to be partnering with Sonos to bring the first architectural speakers with Trueplay to market,” says Sonance CEO Ari Supran. “Sonos represents the pinnacle in distributed audio user experiences and we are thrilled to help extend that experience to installations where hiding technology into architecture is desired.”

The collaboration allows users to easily stream their preferred streaming services, and offers AirPlay 2 control, along with Sonos multiroom streaming. Up to three pairs of Sonos Architectural by Sonance speakers can be powered by a single Sonos Amp. All Sonos Architectural by Sonance speakers feature dynamic bass processing, to boost low frequencies.

Both the In-ceiling and in-wall models are priced at £599 a pair. The former feature specially designed round, or optional square, grilles, which can be painted to match an interior. The Outdoor speakers are priced at £799 a pair, and have been engineered to withstand humidity, water, salt spray, heat, UV rays, and freezing temperatures.

The all-new Sonos Amp, priced at £599, is said to be more than twice as powerful as its predecessor, supports Apple’s AirPlay 2 and streaming services, and offers HDMI-ARC for easy TV audio hook-up.
