How to Put JBL Xtreme in Pairing Mode, Xtreme 1

To pair the Xtreme JBL speaker with a Bluetooth source device for the first time, or to refresh the connection information stored on that device, you must know how to launch pairing mode on the speaker.  In this mode, the JBL Xtreme telegraphs its Bluetooth name and current linkage info on the BT airwaves.  So in this post, we show you how to put the JBL Xtreme 1 speaker into Bluetooth pairing mode, so you can then join it to phones, tablets, computers, and smart speakers.
