Kit Guide: The easiest way to add speakers to your Sonos system


The great thing about Sonos is that you can start with one speaker and build your system over time, adding up to 32 speakers in total. But it's not quite as simple as plugging your new speaker in and turning it on - here's how to add it to your network so it connects to your other Sonos speakers.

We're using the Sonos Controller app because this is the easiest way to add a new speaker to an existing system.

If you haven't set up your Sonos system yet, take a look at our Sonos One setup guide.

Adding your new speaker using the Sonos Controller app


The first thing you need to do is plug your new Sonos speaker in. When you've decided where you want to put it and turned it on, the light will flash white for a few seconds, then flash green.


When you see a flashing green light, it's ready to connect. From the Sonos Controller app, click Manage > Add a Sonos Component.

If you're using the app on a smartphone or tablet, click the Settings icon at the bottom of the screen, then choose Add a Sonos Component.


Press and release the Mute and Volume up buttons at the same time. Then click Next.


The Sonos app will automatically find your speaker, and connect it to your network. This can take a few minutes.


When it's connected, you can name your new speaker. Just choose a name from the list, or type a new name.


Click Next and you're all done.

Hopefully, that's helped you get your new speaker added to your Sonos network. If you'd like help with anything else, you can contact one of our Team Knowhow experts here.
