Sony SRS XB13 How to Pair
With your SRS XB13 powered OFF (power button is dark), run through these directions to pair it to your source wireless mobile device. We’re using an iPad Air computer for this demo.
1. Go to the Home Screen on your Source Device
Firstly, press the Home button to reveal the smart device’s Home screen.
2. Find the Settings App
We found ours on the second page of the Home screen, as shown next.
3. Bring up the Settings App
Thirdly, touch the Settings app icon.
The smart device then shows the first page of its settings, as shown in the next step.
4. Go to the Bluetooth Settings Page to Continue with Sony SRS XB13 How to Pair
Our Bluetooth Settings screen displays as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is running here. But since our Sony SRS XB13 is currently shut OFF (is not in Bluetooth discovery mode), it does not show up in the Bluetooth devices list. Also, we don’t see it since we’ve never paired this speaker with our mobile device before.
5. Turn On your Sony SRX XB13 Speaker
Turn on the XB13 by quickly pressing its Power button. See this, pointed at by the green arrow, in the next picture.
The speaker then boots, and its status lamp glows green, as we see in the next picture.
But since our iPad does not know about this speaker, the SRS XB13 will not pair with it automatically.
6. Put the Speaker into Pairing Mode
Now, to see your Sony SRS XB13 speaker on your device, place it into Bluetooth discovery / pairing mode. Now to do that, press the Pairing button, and release after a quarter second.
So, find the Pairing button as we see in the next picture, pointed at by the green arrow.
Then the speaker emits a rise-fall beep. Also, the Bluetooth Status lamp begins flashing in a pulse-pulse-pause-pulse-pulse-pause pattern.
