How to Put JBL Xtreme 2 in Pairing Mode

To pair the Xtreme 2 JBL speaker with a Bluetooth source device for the first time, or to refurbish the connection information stored on that device, you must know how to begin pairing mode on the speaker.  Moreover, in this mode, the JBL Xtreme 2 advertises its Bluetooth name and current linkage details on the BT airwaves.  So in this post, we show you how to put the JBL speaker into discovery /  pairing mode. With this information, you can then join it to phones, tablets, computers, and smart speakers.
