Setting Up Bluetooth Wireless
Pairing
Any Bluetooth-enabled device that you wish to stream audio to your speaker system must first
be paired to the speaker. The process is simple, and in most cases the pairing process needs to
be done only once.
To pair your Bluetooth-enabled device with the speaker:
1. Make sure your device’s Bluetooth is turned on. See the wireless and/or network settings
menu on your device to check.
2. If the speaker isn’t already on, press and hold the button for 3 seconds to turn it on. You
will hear 4 beeps to indicate the speaker is turned on. The indicator light on the front of the
speaker starts flashing blue.
3. Press and hold for 3 seconds the Pair button to enter pairing mode. You will hear 2 beeps
to indicate pairing mode is entered. The indicator on the front of the speaker starts blinking
faster.
4. Open the Bluetooth settings menu on your device. Select “AWSBT1” from the list of devices
available (you might have to scan for devices). If your device asks for a password, enter
“0000”.
5. A confirmation screen will appear on your device once the speaker and the device are
successfully paired. The blue indicator turns solid blue to indicate successful connection.
The speaker is now ready for you to stream audio from your device.
6. Turn the volume on your device to at least 3/4 max, then start playing something on the
device. Control the speaker volume on the speaker itself, using the +/– buttons on the top
of the speaker.
Note:
• If you notice the sound from the speaker is distorted, turn down your device’s volume.
• You will hear a beep if you turn the speaker’s volume up to the maximum.
Setting Up Bluetooth Wireless

playback from the palm of your hand. Select your music, stop it, change songs and playlists, all
right from your device’s screen.
To adjust volume: Press the Vol +/– buttons on top of the speaker.
