Our family loves music! Along with the vinyl collection at the house we also provide a Bose Bluetooth speaker which you can use to connect your phone to and pick your favorite music app. Here are the instructions on how to connect to the speaker:

We also have a red Bluetooth speaker at the house for use around the hot tub. Please try not to use the Bose speaker near the hot tub.

Pairing your Bluetooth® device to your SoundLink Mobile speaker

Pairing occurs when two Bluetooth® devices communicate with each other and establish a connection. A record of information about this connection is then stored in the memory of each device. Once you pair a device with the SoundLink® speaker, you should not have to pair it again. The SoundLink® speaker can pair with up to six Bluetooth® devices. However, it can only connect to, and play audio from one device at a time.

To pair with a Bluetooth® device, follow these steps:

  • With the Bluetooth® device and the SoundLink® speaker both turned on, press and hold the Bluetooth button on the speaker for three seconds to make the speaker discoverable. The Bluetooth® indicator on the front of the speaker will slowly fade on and off approximately once every second to show the speaker is in discoverable mode
  • In the Bluetooth settings on your device, search for your speaker. This function can be called “Add device” or “Pair New Device”. This will allow your device to discover the SoundLink® speaker
  • On your device in the Bluetooth® list, select “Bose SoundLink”
  • If your device asks for a passkey, enter digits 0000 and press OK. Some devices also ask you to accept the connection. Your Bluetooth® device indicates when pairing is complete. The SoundLink® speaker indicates pairing is complete when the Bluetooth® indicator stops fading on and off and remains on

To connect a device

To connect a previously paired device, press the Bluetooth® button on the SoundLink® speaker. The Bluetooth® indicator on the speaker flashes on and off approximately twice every second until the device connects. Then the indicator stops flashing and remains on when the speaker and device have successfully connected.

To pair additional devices

With the additional Bluetooth® device and the SoundLink® speaker both turned on, press the Bluetooth® button on the speaker for three seconds to make the speaker discoverable again. Then follow steps 2 – 4 from above.

Note: The SoundLink® memory can hold up to six paired devices. You can pair more than six devices, but the memory will never contain more than six. When the memory is full with six devices and an additional device is paired, the least recently used device is deleted from memory and replaced by the newly paired device.

Clearing memory

On the SoundLink® speaker, press and hold the Bluetooth® button for approximately 10 seconds until you hear a tone. The SoundLink® speaker clears all Bluetooth® devices from its memory and becomes discoverable.
