This piece explains how to link two Wonderbooms together so that they both play the same audio content from a source Bluetooth device. In this example, we use one Wonderboom 1, and one Wonderboom 2 speaker to show how linking them toether works. You can indeed link two Wonderboom 1’s, two Wonderboom 2’s, or, as we’re showing here, you can link a Wonderboom 1 with a Wonderboom 2 speaker.
How to Link Two Wonderbooms Together
1. Power Up the Two Wonderbooms
We show the Power buttons on each of our Wonderbooms in the next pictures.
Press and release the Power button on the first one, and await the power-ON sound.
Then, press and release the Power button on the second Wonderboom, and again, wait for it to come on.
2. Link the First Wonderboom with a Phone or Other Bluetooth Device
In this demo, we’ll first connect the Wonderboom 1 speaker with our iPad Air tablet. If you’re not sure how to link your Wonderboom to a Bluetooth source device, then see our How to Pair 1 Wonderboom Speaker post for details.
3. Press and Release the Play / Pause Button on the First Speaker to Continue with How to Link Two Wonderbooms
Next, press and hold the middle (Play / Pause) area of the Wonderboom you just connected with your BT source device until the speaker makes a pairing noise and the pairing lamp begins rapid flashing. Here, our first speaker is the original Wonderboom (the first version of this series), and in the next picture, we show where to press. E.g. In the area enclosed by the green rectangle.
4. Press the Play / Pause Button on the Second Wonderboom
Next, press and release the middle area of the second Wonderboom. In our case, this is the second version of the Wonderboom (Wonderboom 2), and in the next picture, we show where to press on this speaker, with the yellow arrow.
The speaker then makes a pairing sound and the pairing light just above the center button in the last picture, flashes briefly. Then, once this speaker links with the first Wonderboom, the pairing lamp starts glowing steadily.
5. Done with How to Link Two Wonderbooms !
Your two Wonderbooms are now linked together. Thus, when you play audio on your BT source device, you’ll now hear it through both Wonderbooms at the same time.
Note that each Wonderboom plays in stereo, and this holds true even when you have two of them joined to each other. I.e. Each speaker provides stereo whether or not it’s linked to another Wonderboom. Thus it’s not the case that the first Wonderboom plays the left channel and the second plays the right. In fact, both Wonderbooms play both channels, in stereo.
Breaking the Link Between the Wonderbooms
To break this link, simply power down the second speaker. After that, the first one (the one that you connected with your Bluetooth device) keeps playing.
Now powering down the first one will also break the connection between it and the second speaker, and the second speaker will stop playing. But this also breaks the link with the source BT device. So powering OFF the first speaker stops BOTH speakers, although the second one will still be powered UP until you turn it off.
