Can you connect JBL speaker to Echo Dot?  Yes, indeed you can!  The Echo Dot Gens 2 and 3 speakers feature an auxiliary (AUX) output jack.

Plus, many JBL speakers have an AUX Input jack.  Most of these are 3.5mm female audio receptacles.  To connect the Dot and JBL speakers via cable, all you need is a male 3.5mm to male 3.5mm stereo patch cable.  Cord lengths of up to fifty feet and beyond work well.

Or, if cabling between the Alexa Dots and JBL speakers isn’t your thing, you can connect them via Bluetooth.  The process is virtually the same for all JBL Bluetooth speakers as well as Echo Dots that support Bluetooth connectivity.  In short, you turn on your JBL speaker and place it into pairing mode by pressing its Bluetooth button.  Then, you find your Echo Dot speaker in the Alexa app, and from there, scan for new Bluetooth devices.  When you see your JBL speaker, tap it, and the connection is then established. We offer several posts below that show how to connect Echo Dot to JBL Bluetooth speakers, listed below.
