Now, if you have a JBL Bluetooth speaker and so do your friends, do you know that you can connect them all and enjoy a surround sound experience? Today’s guide will show you how you can connect multiple JBL Bluetooth speakers.
The good thing about the JBL range of portable Bluetooth speakers is the fact that you can connect them.

Let’s take a look at the Bluetooth speakers connection technology and how to connect speakers of each generation.

Steps to Connect Multiple JBL Speakers Together
You need to know that only JBL Connect speakers can connect. If you have a JBL Speaker with PartyBoost and the other with JBL Connect or Connect Plus, you will not be able to pair them to each other and vice versa. You can pair any JBL Speaker to each other that has the same connection technologies.
- First, connect your mobile device or laptop to one JBL Bluetooth speaker.
- Now that the phone and one JBL speaker are connected, you will have to press the Connect, Connect Plus, or PartyBoost button.
- The speaker will play a small audio sound to indicate that the feature is now turned on.
- Now, on the second JBL speaker or multiple other speakers, power it up first.
- Once the speaker or speakers have powered up, you will simply need to press the Connect, Connect Plus, or PartyBoost button.
- These speakers will now automatically connect to the first source speaker.
- Once the connection is successful, you will be able to play music and listen to it on all of your similar generation JBL Bluetooth speakers.
Connect 2 Mix Generations of JBL Bluetooth Speakers
Now, we know that different generations of JBL Bluetooth speakers cannot connect. However, if your mobile device has a Bluetooth Setting called Dual Audio or Dual Mode. If your phone has this, you can connect two different JBL Speakers and get your audio output from both. However, you won’t be able to get the perfect Stereo surround sound.
And this is how you can connect 2 or more JBL Bluetooth speakers. Sure, it is a letdown that you cannot connect multiple generations of JBL Bluetooth speakers with each other. The upside is that each connection technology generation is better than the other in terms of performance and range between the speakers.
Also, you connect a maximum of a hundred JBL Speakers from the same generation. Do note that you cannot connect the JBL PartyBox series of speakers to each other or any other JBL Speaker.
