Using SKAA technology, the revolutionary SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) is changing the game with the ability to wirelessly connect up to five SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) speakers. We strived to ensure a simple, straightforward solution for when connecting several SOUNDBOKS speakers. Here is a video to explain how to use the TeamUP feature:
The new TeamUP button gives you the option to choose between various modes for your SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3), read about them below.
SOLO-MODE is the default SOUNDBOKS setting, enabling you to play your preferred music with a single device connected to your SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3). Within this setting, you can choose to connect your device either with Bluetooth or with a wired connection using an AUX Cable into the Pro Panel located on the backside of the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3).
HOST/JOIN-MODE are our newly introduced features that allow you to play music on up to 5 SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) speakers wirelessly. To set this up, you will need one SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) on HOST-mode and the rest of the nearby SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) speakers (up to 4) on JOIN-mode.
When HOST-mode is on and playing, the volume levels from the HOST will not correspond with the other speakers that are connected, this is to allow various levels of volume, in various locations. If you want the speakers to play on the same volume, you can easily use our new SOUNDBOKS app. Through the app you can control the volume of all speakers at the same time.
While using the HOST/JOIN setup you will always need to connect your playing devices to the HOST. If you wish to connect other devices using the Pro Panel (DJ Mixer, Microphone, etc.) all of the devices will need to be plugged into the HOST speaker. The inputs on the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) speakers in JOIN-mode are muted, the AUX-out can still be used to connect an additional speaker.
When a HOST is nearby, the SOUNDBOKS in JOIN-mode will automatically connect with it. If you do not wish to be connected to a SOUNDBOKS in the area, you simply switch to SOLO-mode.
CONNECTING 6+ NEW SOUNDBOKS SPEAKERS
You can connect up to four SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) speakers wirelessly to a single HOST. However, to connect more than 5 SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) speakers wirelessly, you will need to set up 2 HOST speakers, which each allow for 4 "JOIN" speakers to be connected to each HOST. You will need to connect your device to HOST A, then run an AUX from the "AUX OUT" on HOST A to the "AUX IN" on HOST B. You could multiply this setup an infinite number of times to fit your needs.
The BOND button is located on the top of the Pro Panel between the CH1 and CH2 input. The BOND Button is for advanced functions in JOIN-mode. To learn more about this button, check out our article on the Pro Panel.
