Need an Instant Outdoor Speaker System with Great Sound?
The New Sonos Move Easily Goes Everywhere You Need Brilliant Sound
When GHT Group talks about outdoor speaker systems for your Smyrna home, we are usually describing something more elaborate than a single wireless speaker. We humbly submit that if you want to make your patio or backyard rock like an outdoor concert at Piedmont Park, we can make that happen, even at the risk of drawing the ire of your neighborhood.
However, sometimes all you need is clear, punchy and dynamic sound wherever you are, plus the ability to listen to whatever music strikes the mood. All the better if that sound can move with you seamlessly from the backyard to the garage and to the tailgate party.
That’s where the brand-new Sonos Move comes in. Sonos is known for wireless speakers, but this one has a couple of new twists. First, this is Sonos' first Bluetooth speaker, so you can connect any Bluetooth device as a music source - no Wi-Fi required. Second, the speaker is battery-powered, so it can go anywhere - no power plug required.
What else makes it special? It’s made by Sonos, and that adds features that Sonos does uniquely well. Keep reading for more details and why it may be your perfect starter or extension to your outdoor speaker system.
A Card-Carrying Member of the Sonos Ecosystem
The critical aspect that sets this battery-powered Bluetooth speaker apart is its place within the Sonos ecosystem. That means the speaker can play as part of a multi-room audio Sonos system. If you have the Sonos Playbar or even a Sonos Connect or Port that ties your non-Sonos audio system into the Sonos system, the Move fits right in with them all. If you're having a free-flowing indoor-outdoor party on a beautiful fall day, the Move takes care of filling your patio with great music and can be synchronized with your indoor speakers.
The Sonos ecosystem also includes the acclaimed Sonos app that aggregates all the popular streaming music sources like Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and many more. The built-in far-field microphone provides you voice control functionality through Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa while Apple Airplay 2 and Spotify Connect functionality provide additional ways to direct your audio to the speaker.
The Move is a speaker designed to be outdoors. You don't need to worry about accidentally knocking it off the table – a robust, shock-resistant case will protect the Move from harm. The built-in scoop handle is easy to grab to take to your next music destination. You can charge the Move by setting the speaker down into its innovative charging base. Once fully charged, you simply lift it up and take it away where you need it - no need to fumble with cords.
When not on Wi-Fi, the Move makes an excellent partner for outdoor activities outside the confines of your home. Going to a Falcons tailgate party? Put the tunes on the Move. The Bluetooth connection means it can play anywhere, and the ten-hour battery life should outlast the tailgate and the game.
The Move’s IP56 protection rating means it can withstand dust and even high-pressure water jets. Being who we are, we wanted to verify these claims. Check out the video below, and rest assured our Sonos Move is still humming.

What about the sound? Every Sonos wireless speaker has excellent sound quality that belies its size, and the Move is no exception. The powerful Class D-driven bass driver, unique downward-firing tweeter, and separate mid-woofer deliver dynamic sound indoors and out. Sonos' latest TruePlay tuning technology is built-in and uses the speaker's microphone to tune the sound to match its environment, no longer requiring your smartphone's assistance.
