Installation and Operation Manual





Setting Up Bluetooth Wireless


The Bluetooth-enabled device that you wish to stream audio to your speaker system must 
fi rst 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 
fl ashing blue.

to indicate pairing mode is entered. The indicator on the back of the speaker starts blinking 

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 confi rmation 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.



If you notice the sound from the speaker is distorted, turn down your device’s volume.
