How to Turn On JBL Boombox Bass Mode

You can change how loud the bass is on the JBL Boombox, by turning on its bass mode. When switched on, this super bass mode makes the passive bass radiators vibrate much more, and adds a low rumble quality to the playing program, that travels pretty far from the speaker. Plus, you’ll hear a bit more treble as well.





How to Turn On JBL Boombox Bass Mode

By default, the JBL Boombox 1 has its bass mode turned ON after a reset.  So if your speaker is fresh out of the box, or you have just reset it, then bass mode is already on by default.

But if you think that you should hear more bass, then you can try to turn bass mode ON by pressing and holding in the Volume Down (-) and Bluetooth buttons for about ten seconds, until the Power and Connect buttons light up together, as shown in the next picture, pointed at by the green arrows.  E.g. Find all these buttons on the top of the speaker, as shown in the picture above.

To turn bass mode back to what it was before, then again,, press and hold the Volume Down and Bluetooth buttons in until the Power and Connect buttons light up.  Then release the buttons.  When the buttons inside the oval island on the speaker light up, bass mode goes back to what it was once more.

Warning

The drivers really rock when you switch on bass mode.  So use caution in how loudly you play this speaker with the extra bass. This way, you’ll avoid damaging the speaker drivers inside. If the bass is crackling, tapping, or otherwise distorting, turn it down !  Plus, less bass means longer battery life per charge as well.
