Sonos Unveils 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker With Bold New Sound And Stunnning Performance

Elegant and simple to install, the 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker by Sonos sets a high-performance standard for architectural speakers.


Sonos extends the highly successful Sonos Architectural line of passive speakers by introducing the 8 In-Ceiling Speaker by Sonos and Sonance. The 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker provides installers and customers with a new size option that sits discreetly within the ceiling and delivers powerful, balanced and clear sound. The 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker will be coming soon to South Africa.

Optimized and powerful In-Ceiling sound

The 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker, designed and tuned in collaboration with Sonance, features a custom-built, enlarged woofer and high-excursion motor for a smooth midrange, stunning deep bass down to 32Hz, and a greater listening area. A 30mm tweeter and newly optimized waveguide ensures natural sounding vocals and better high-frequency dispersion, for wide and even coverage that fills the room with sound.

While the 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker is bigger in size than the 6 , the aesthetics of the magnetic grille are unchanged, ensuring both models can be used seamlessly together in the same space. The grille for both 8″ and 6″ sizes are available in white for a discreet match with the widest range of ceilings and, thanks to a specially developed steel grille, can be painted to meet the customization needs of every client.

“The 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker has been designed in direct response to the needs of our installers, who asked us for more size options and flexibility during installation.” said Audra Kinsley, VP and GM of Sonos Professional. “This new addition provides a bold sound profile and stunning performance that enhances the experience customers get when Sonos Architectural speakers are paired with Sonos Amp. The addition of the 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker provides professional installers and customers the freedom and flexibility to choose the design and sound experience that fits perfectly within their space.” 

Even better when paired with Amp

In combination with Sonos Amp, the Sonos Architectural line provides crisp and clear multiroom audio. When paired with Sonos Amp, the In-Ceiling or In-Wall speakers unlock even more benefits including overdrive protection and custom tuning enhancements that ensure a fuller sound and a balanced frequency response. In combination with Sonos Amp the 8″ speakers also benefit from Trueplay™ tuning which accounts for the size, construction, and furnishings of the room where the speakers are placed, and automatically adjusts the EQ for optimal sound. Like all Sonos Architectural speakers, the 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker paired with Sonos Amp will benefit from the Sonos ecosystem including an easy-to-use app that works with all of your favourite streaming services, Apple Airplay 2 control, regular software updates and the ability to add additional Sonos speakers and components over time. Sonos 8″ In-Ceiling Speaker by Sonos and Sonance will be coming soon!
