3 Ways to Connect JBL Speakers Together
For your party mood, you can connect many JBL speakers. This way you can enjoy any kind of music or anything else from all the speakers at the same time.
This increases the audio level. But keep in mind that loud audio can cause damage to your ears.
There are three types of JBL speakers. You can’t connect these different types of speakers with each other. You can only connect between the same categories.
- JBL Connect Speakers
- JBL Connect Plus Speakers
- JBL Party Boost Speakers
I’ll teach you how to connect many JBL speakers for all these three types in detail.
Though there aren’t a lot of differences, for your help, I’ve explained them separately.
Method 1: For JBL Connect Speakers
Wanna know how to connect two JBL speakers together? Then, JBL Connect Speakers may help you.
Because through JBL Connect Speakers you can connect two speakers. You can only connect between these speakers.
There are some JBL connected speakers. They’re
- JBL Flip 3
- JBL Charge 3
- JBL Pulse 2
- JBL Clip
Here, I’ll tell you how to connect them.
Step 1: Switch on the Speakers
First, switch on the speakers you wanna connect. The “turn on” button is on the back or spine of the speakers.
Press it to turn on them. You can press it for a second if it doesn’t turn on.
You can also press it to turn it off. That’s how to turn off JBL speakers.
Step 2: Connect All the Speakers Via Bluetooth
Now, connect all the speakers to the same source via speakers that feature Bluetooth pairing.
First, you’ll need to push down the “Bluetooth” button. Look for the button at the left of the speakers. It’ll be solid blue after turning it on.
Open the Bluetooth settings from the device you’re using. It can be android, iPhone, Mac or windows, etc.
Search for available devices. Pair up with the speakers you want to connect.
If the “turn on” button is flashing blue, it means they’re searching for devices for pairing.
If the “turn on” button is in White, it means the speaker’s in the pairing process.
Is the “turn on” button solid blue? If yes, then it means the speaker’s a proper connection with the device.
That’s the process of how to connect the JBL speaker to the phone. The process’s the same if you wanna know how to connect a JBL speaker to an iPhone.
Step 3: Play Audio from the Connected Device
After pairing, play audio from the device. You can now play audio like songs, recordings, music players, etc.
You can hear the audio or song from only a speaker. That’s the primary speaker.
Step 4: Press ‘Connect’
Find the “Connect” button from the speaker. It looks like an hourglass. You can find it on the left side of the turn on/off button.
Now press the “Connect” button from the speaker that’s playing audio. Then follow the same step for the other speakers too.
That’s how you can connect two JBL speakers.
Method 2: For JBL Connect Plus Speakers
JBL Connect Plus Speakers are the advanced version of the JBL Connect Speakers.
Through JBL Connect Speakers, you can only connect two speakers. But through JBL Connect Plus Speakers you can link up to one hundred speakers together.
Some JBL Connect Plus Speakers are:
- JBL Flip 4
- JBL Xtreme 2
- JBL Pulse 3
- JBL Charge 4
