Pair Wonderboom 2 Instructions

This post gives directions to pair the Wonderboom 2 portable speaker, to get it playing from your phone, tablet, or other BT device. First, of course, for new speakers, unpack them and make sure that they have some charge in their batteries.  Then, with your speaker turned OFF (all dark top panel LEDs), follow these steps to pair with most any BT source device.  Thus in this demo, we show how this pairing works on an iPad Air 3 tablet. But a like routine works for iPhones, iPods, and Android phones and tablets too.

How to Pair Wonderboom 2, Step by Step

1. Unpack and Charge the Speaker

If this is a new speaker, take it out of the box and remove all wrappings and packing materials.  Then, charge it for several minutes before proceeding, as these can be pretty dead when you first get them.

2. Next, Visit the Home Screen on your Bluetooth Device

Then press the Home button to get to the  Home  page.  See our  Home  screen as shown next on our iPad.

3. Find the iPad  Settings  App

We found ours on the second page of the  Home  screen on our tablet.

5. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with How to Pair Wonderboom 2

Tap the  Bluetooth  item, as pointed at by the dark green arrow in the last screenshot above.

Our  Bluetooth Settings screen then appears as follows. Note that we switched ON our Bluetooth on this tablet. But since the speaker is currently OFF, it does not show in either the  My Devices  or  Other Devices lists on the tablet yet,  Why?  Because we’ve never paired it with this iPad before.  Plus, the speaker is not yet broadcasting its BT connection info. This looks something like as shown next.

Power up the speaker by rapidly pressing its  Power  button.

See this button, pointed at by yellow arrow, in the next picture.

The speaker then comes on, letting you know this by making a startup sound.

When you press this Pairing button, the speaker makes an offbeat but cool pairing sound. Plus, a lamp in this button starts fast-flashing white. See this in the last picture above.

The  Bluetooth Settings  screen then changes to display something like the following.

10. Done with Pair Wonderboom 2 Directions !

We have now successfully paired this Bluetooth speaker to an iPad Air 3 tablet.  Audio output from that smart device now plays on this speaker, which is what you want. Bluetooth set up like this works with most other Bluetooth source devices as well.
