In summary, you can effectively connect your JBL speakers altogether and play the same audio simultaneously with only a few easy steps. All you have to do is pair all of your JBL speakers to your device and play any audio of your preference. When audio plays through one of your speakers, press the “Connect” button, which will allow them to sync with each other perfectly.
With that said, let’s take a step-by-step look at how to connect your JBL speakers altogether and have an improved listening and music experience.
Step 1: Power On Your JBL Speakers
The first step you have to do is turn on all of the JBL speakers you want to connect. Turning on your speakers will automatically connect to your chosen device.
Otherwise, if you’re using your speaker the first time, you have to press the Bluetooth button once, which will trigger your speaker into pairing mode.
Step 2: Search For Your Speakers In Your Device’s Bluetooth Settings
The next thing you have to do is find all of your JBL speakers in your device’s Bluetooth settings and pair them with your device.
If you’re only using the speakers for the first time, you have to pair them all manually. Otherwise, they will pair automatically.
Step 3: Play Audio From Your Device / Source
If you’ve successfully paired all of the speakers, playing audio from your device/source is the next step.
You can play any song or video on any app of your choice. However, the audio will play only from one of your speakers. Don’t fret because the next step will finally let you connect the audio to your other JBL speakers.
Step 4: Press The “Connect” Button On Your Playing JBL Speaker
As one of your speakers plays your chosen audio, you have to connect that speaker with the rest of your speakers. All you have to do is press the “Connect” button on the speaker. This will allow this speaker to sync with the others.
The “Connect” button looks like a lemniscate (∞), and it’s located near the rest of the speaker’s function buttons.
Step 5: Press The “Connect” Button On The Rest Of Your JBL Speakers
This is the last step, and all you have to do is press the “Connect” button on all of the JBL other speakers paired to your device. All of the other speakers will connect within seconds, and you’ll finally be able to hear audio from all of the speakers.
I have to remind your that all of your speakers must be paired to your device so they’ll simultaneously play any audio you choose.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Connecting Multiple JBL Speakers Together:
Here are some of the FAQs regarding this process, and I’m sure these will answer any questions you may have.
Which JBL speakers can I connect?
Not all JBL speakers have a “JBL Connect” or “JBL Connect+” function; thus, only those that have these functions will be able to pull off this trick.
What is the difference between JBL Connect and JBL Connect+?
Both are exclusive communication protocols between JBL devices. Early models of JBL speakers with “Connect” allow you to connect up to two speakers at once. Meanwhile, newer speakers with “Connect+” allow you to connect up to more than a hundred speakers.
How do I disconnect one speaker from the rest?
You can do this either 1) press the “Connect” button again or 2) turn off that speaker. Both ways will disconnect that particular speaker without disrupting the connection of the other speakers.
Connecting your JBL speakers is easy because you don’t have to do highly technical procedures to let you play on multiple JBL speakers simultaneously. You can already have a better listening and music experience with just five steps.
JBL’s “Connect” and “Connect+” functions are handy, especially for people who own multiple JBL speakers and want to maximize the potential of their devices. Just keep in mind that only those speakers under the same communication protocol can connect with each other.
