TV remote sync
Dolby Atmos maps sounds in space for a 3D effect so you experience planes as if they're flying overhead, hear footsteps moving across the room, and feel the score surround you.
*Requires a TV that supports Dolby Atmos and Atmos-encoded content.
Oscar-winning sound engineers helped fine-tune Beam to make sure you hear every word and can always follow the story. For even greater clarity when characters whisper or the action intensifies, turn on Speech Enhancement in the Sonos app.
Two force-cancelling drivers at the centre of Sub eliminate vibration and rattle so you get powerful bass without any distortion.
Four elliptical midwoofers ensure faithful playback of mid-range frequencies and maximise low-end output.
One centre tweeter creates a crisp, high-frequency response.
Three passive radiators enhance low frequencies for balanced, powerful sound.

Beam (Gen 2) features a faster processor and HDMI eARC connection, both of which enable support for higher resolution audio formats, including Dolby Atmos. This increased processing power also gives Beam (Gen 2) five speaker arrays compared the first generation's three. The design has been updated with a new grille, monochromatic finish, and colour-matched cord.
Yes. We recommend using the Sonos Beam Wall Mount.
A matching pair of the following speakers will work as surrounds: Sonos One (including SL), Sonos Five, Play:1, Play:3, and Play:5 (Gen 2). You can also use Sonos Amp to power in-wall, in-ceiling, or other passive speakers as surrounds.
All generations of Sub will work with Beam (Gen 2).
eARC stands for enhanced Audio Return Channel. It allows full-resolution sound signals, including Dolby Atmos, to be passed from your TV to the soundbar.
No. Beam (Gen 2) can connect to TVs with eARC, ARC or optical outputs. For greatest compatibility, eARC is recommended.
If you connect to a TV with eARC, the Dolby audio formats supported include Dolby Atmos, TrueHD, MAT, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby Digital.
If you connect to a TV using ARC, the Dolby audio formats supported are dependent on your TV model and manufacturer. The TV may be capable of sending Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital. An ARC connection cannot support TrueHD or MAT.
If you connect to a TV using the optical adapter, the Dolby audio formats supported are dependent on your TV model and manufacturer. The TV may be capable of sending Dolby Digital. An optical connection cannot support Dolby Atmos, TrueHD, MAT, or Dolby Digital Plus.
Dolby Atmos is an object-based format for surround sound that designates different sounds to specific places in the room rather than channels, creating a more realistic experience by dynamically incorporating height, surround, and front channels.
Dolby Atmos is dependent on the source material as well as the TV passing an Atmos signal through the HDMI port. If the soundbar is receiving an Atmos signal, this will be displayed on the Now Playing screen and Settings menu in the Sonos app.
The processing power in Beam (Gen 2) renders two additional audio channels through the five speaker arrays and uses psychoacoustic HRTF technology to give the impression of height. Arc has two internal speakers that physically fire audio upward for a true height experience.
You can use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. While streaming with AirPlay 2, you can use Siri on your iOS device to control Apple Music. Subject to regional availability.
If your TV supports CEC (TVs with HDMI will support CEC) and you have set up a voice assistant, you can control the TV with your voice.
Yes. Beam (Gen 2) will support Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Atmos content with an Apple TV 4K. For Dolby Atmos content, Apple TV 4K uses a high bandwidth format known as MAT and requires an eARC-capable TV. Some Dolby-certified TVs can convert Apple TV 4K Atmos content to an ARC-compatible format. Check with your TV manufacturer for compatibility.
Beam (Gen 2) requires the latest generation of the Sonos app (Sonos S2).
