How To Connect JBL Speakers Together

Pairing my two JBL Speakers together gives me a much better experience when listening to music at home and with my friends. It’s also cheaper than having to buy an entirely new sound system.

Exploring Multi-Speaker Connectivity

Yes, you guessed it, today we’re going to discuss how to connect or sync multiple JBL speakers, whether to your Android phone, iPhone, or any other mobile device.

The Ease of Pairing

Pairing your speakers makes it easy.

Understanding JBL’s Pairing Technology

JBL has two ways for pairing their speakers together, that is, the JBL Connect+ and PartyBoost.

Pairing Multiple JBL Speakers Together: Step-by-Step Guide

I will now go through the step-by-step process of connecting multiple JBL speakers together.

Step One: Connect to Your Speaker

  1. Start by turning on all the JBL speakers by pressing the power button on all the speakers.
  2. Then, press the primary speaker’s Bluetooth button to pair with the source.
  3. Open Bluetooth settings on your device, such as the Mac, Windows, iPhone, or Android
  4. Now, search for the available devices and pair the primary speaker with the phone.

Step Two: Play Music

  • Play music as you normally would on your device, and you will notice the music coming from the primary speakers.

Step Three: Connect to other JBL Speakers

  • Press the connect button for all the speakers you want to connect. 
  • Your available speakers will connect within 30 seconds.
  • Now, check if you can hear music from all the speakers.

Symbols for Communication Protocols

  • The hourglass symbol is for speakers with a  Connect and Connect+ feature
  • The speakers with the PartyBoost feature have an Infinity symbol.

Gaining More Control

Do you want more control over connected speakers? Would you like to have better control over which speakers are connected? 

Then, use the JBL Portable app. Connecting all the speakers works the same. You can find the app on the App Store for iPhone and Google Play Store for Android.
