Sonos is expanding its portfolio with the new 203 mm in-ceiling speakers. The speakers are larger than the previous 6-inch model and, according to the manufacturer, offer natural, room-filling sound and easy installation.

Sonos is known for its range of streaming speakers. Its portfolio includes various models for stationary use, such as the Sonos Era 300 or the Sonos Beam soundbar, as well as various portable models such as the Sonos Move 2. Sonos has also been offering inbuilt speakers from the Sonos Architectural range for some time now, which has now been expanded to include a new model.

Previously, Sonos' range included an in-wall speaker as well as a 152 mm or 6-inch in-ceiling speaker. Sonos has now added a new and larger model, the 203 mm In-Ceiling Speaker with an 8-inch diagonal, which the manufacturer recently unveiled in a press release.

The new in-ceiling speaker is already on offer on the company's webstore for $999, meaning that the larger 8-inch model costs $340 more than the smaller 6-inch model. In addition, a bundle with the Sonos Amp is also on offer at a cheaper overall price. This enables, among other things, Trueplay tuning in the Sonos app for room-tailored sound.

The new Sonos 203 mm in-ceiling speakers are equipped with a 203 mm woofer and a 30 mm tweeter. Sonos promises natural, room-filling sound and a frequency range of 41 Hz to 20 kHz (±3 dB). In contrast to the classic Sonos speakers, the built-in model is of course more complex to install, but is still reportedly easy to install. It can be used in suspended ceilings, for example. The installation depth is 135 mm.
