Step 1: place the speakers in the desired position

For the best stereo sound, place the speakers left and right in front of the listening position. You ensure that the distance from each speaker to the listening position is the same. Place the speakers at ear height. Use a box or stand to create the correct position.

Tip: Do you have a Play: 3 or a Play: 5? You can position them both horizontally and vertically, as long as both speakers are in the same position. Place the speakers horizontally to have good sound on your entire sofa. Do you often listen alone? Then position the speakers vertically for better stereo playback.
