How to Bass Boost JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Speaker

You can change how loud the bass is on the JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth speaker, by turning on and off its bass boost mode. When switched on, this mode makes the passive bass radiators on each side of the unit vibrate more.  Plus, bass boost adds a low rumble quality to the playing program, that travels pretty far from the speaker.  So, for you bass lovers, this piece  shows how to bass boost this speaker, to get that extra boom.





How to Turn Off Bass Boost on the JBL Flip 3 Speaker

By default, the JBL Flip 3 has bass boost mode turned ON after a reset.  This adds a bit of treble and lots of extra bass to the audio output as compared to when this mode is OFF.

You can turn this extra bass mode off by pressing and holding in the Volume Down (-) and Bluetooth buttons as pointed at by the green arrows in the next picture, for about ten seconds, until the Power and Connect buttons light up white.  See these lamps lit up in the previous picture, inside the green oval.

How to Turn On Bass Boost on the JBL Flip 3 Speaker

To re activate bass boost once more, press and hold the Volume Down and Bluetooth buttons in until the Power and Connect buttons light white.  Then release the buttons.  When these buttons above light together, bass boost has resumed once again.

Warning

The unit really rocks when you switch ON bass boost.  So be warry of how loudly you play this speaker with the bass boosted, to avoid breakage to the speaker drivers. If the bass is crackling, snapping, tapping, or otherwise distorting, turn it down !
