Guide on How to Connect JBL Speakers
Follow these steps on how to connect JBL speakers To connect a JBL speaker to bluetooth, all it takes is a few button presses, like you would any normal bluetooth-capable device. Follow these steps:
- Turn on your JBL speakers and set them into pairing mode. If your JBL speakers have not been used or previously connected to any device, these will automatically be in pairing mode. In case your speakers are not yet in pairing mode, you may manually turn this on by making a long press on the bluetooth button. Hold the button down on your JBL speakers for some three seconds. A LED light will blink or flash to signal that it’s ready to pair with your device.
- On your phone, laptop, or device with which to pair your JBL speakers, check the settings, and look for your JBL device once bluetooth is on. Do this by going to your phone or laptop’s settings, turn on bluetooth, and select your JBL speakers as it comes up on the list of the devices for pairing.
This step may differ depending on your device. Here’s a quick guide for you on how to connect JBL speakers, locate your bluetooth, and start pairing.
Go to Settings and then turn on your bluetooth. You should see a list under ‘OTHER DEVICES.’ Tap on your JBL speakers to pair your devices.
For Mac OS
Go to the Apple menu, then to System Preferences, and select bluetooth. Tap on the name of your JBL device on the list that appears, then click Connect. Click Accept if it requests to pair.
Head to Settings, as usual, turn on bluetooth, and then choose ‘Pair new device.’ On a list of devices, tap on your JBL speakers to start pairing.
For Windows 10
Go to System Settings and open ‘Bluetooth & other devices.’ You may locate the bluetooth button in the toolbar and click on it so you can select from a list of devices that come up under ‘Show bluetooth devices.
- When your device and JBL speakers are already paired, the LED light on your bluetooth speakers will stop blinking. Your speakers may also emit a sound or a voice announcement signaling successful pairing.
- Once paired successfully, you may start playing audio files from your paired phone or laptop. The sound that you hear should now come from your JBL Speakers, not your devices.
You also have the option to connect multiple JBL bluetooth speakers so you can amplify sound better. While not all speakers can be connected simultaneously to one source, like a phone or laptop, some JBL models have a feature that allows them to be linked. These JBL speaker models have a ‘Connect’ button, which looks like an hourglass with a plus sign.
To connect multiple JBL speakers that are ‘Connect – capable,’ simply press the ‘Connect’ button after pairing the speakers with your audio source.
On your other JBL bluetooth speaker, press its ‘Connect’ button. This should signal all the other bluetooth speakers that they have been linked for simultaneous playing.
For easy reference from start to finish, here are the steps on how to connect JBL speakers and how to link them to each other:
- Step 1
Turn on ‘Bluetooth’ on your phone, laptop, tablet, or the device that is the main source of your audio files.
- Step 2
Turn your JBL bluetooth speakers on.
- Step 3
On your source device, look for the name of your JBL device and tap on it. This should start the pairing process.

Click the Connect button on your JBL speakers, one by one.
