Setting Up Bluetooth Wireless
Pairing
The 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 the On-Off button to turn it on. You will hear a beep
to indicate the speaker is turned on. The indicator light on the back 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 back of the speaker starts blinking
faster.
4. Open the Bluetooth settings menu on your device. Select “AR SPEAKER” 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 Volume +/– buttons on
the back of the speaker.
Note:
• If you notice the sound from the speaker is distorted, turn down your device’s volume.
Setting Up Bluetooth Wireless
Streaming Audio With Bluetooth
Once you’ve paired and connected your device with the speaker, you can control music
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 Volume +/– buttons on back of the speaker.
