3. Set up a new system: Once you’re signed in, tap on “Set up a new system” to begin the setup process for your Sonos soundbar.

4. Add your Sonos product: On the next screen, you will see a popup showing your Sonos product. Tap on “Add” to proceed with the setup.

5. Sonos S1 Controller (if applicable): If you are using the Sonos S1 Controller, you may see a prompt to continue and set up your products. Tap on “Continue” and then “Set up products” to proceed.

8. Enter your Wi-Fi password: If your Wi-Fi network is password-protected, you will be prompted to enter the password. Type in your Wi-Fi password and tap on “Connect” to proceed.

9. Wait for the setup to complete: The Sonos app will now complete the setup process and connect your Sonos soundbar to your Wi-Fi network. This may take a few minutes, so be patient and wait for the setup to finish.

10. Soundbar is now discoverable: Once the setup is complete, your Sonos soundbar should be discoverable by other devices on your network. You can now use the Sonos app or other compatible devices to control and play audio through your soundbar.
