  • If you are having trouble with distortion or drop out, try the following suggestions:

    Move the speakers closer to each other

    Make sure the streaming speaker (host) only connects to one audio source, disconnect the Bluetooth connection between the streaming speaker (host) and other audio source

    Make sure the audio source only connects with one streaming speaker (host), disconnect the Bluetooth connection between the audio source and other speakers

    Restart both your speakers and the audio source

    Make sure speakers are away from other sources of wireless signal – you could be experiencing interference

    Re-pair the audio source with your speaker

    If you’re streaming audio content from the internet, the issue could be with the internet connection and not your speaker

  • The Boombox 2 features the same battery capacity as the first generation Boombox. The Boombox 2 battery specs have recently been changed in measurement specifications but still provides up to 24 hours of audio playback.
  • A new firmware version has been released for the Boombox 2 (Version 0.4.4.0), below is a list of improvements:
    1. Improvements to Bluetooth connection stability.
    2. Support for PartyBoost under aux-in connection.
    3. Improvements for switching between PartyBoost and Stereo mode.
    4. Improvements to firmware update stability with iOS.
    5. Improvements to the stability of switching music between aux-in and Bluetooth connection.

    The firmware update is installed as an OTA update:
    1. Download and install the JBL Portable app from the Google Play/App Store, or simply update the app if you have already downloaded it.
    2. Connect your Boombox 2 to your phone/tablet through Bluetooth.
    3. Open the JBL Portable app and wait for the Boombox 2 to appear.
    4. On the Boombox 2 screen, select settings (gear cog symbol).
    5. Proceed with installing the firmware update.
  • If the buttons on your portable speaker are not working properly or are unresponsive while plugged into a power source, please try running the speaker on battery. If the buttons perform correctly while running on battery, this means your power supply is not providing enough current/amps. Be sure to use a power supply that has a rating equal to or greater than the amperage rating indicated in your product specs.
  • You will need to dry the charging port completely before plugging in power for charging.
     
  • This product does not feature speakerphone or voice assistant functionality as it does not have a microphone.
  • • Always have clear line of sight between your Bluetooth device (speaker, headphones etc.) and source device (Smartphone/tablet/PC etc). Be aware of obstacles in front of your devices.

    • Try to shutdown other products that have Bluetooth, but are not being used. They are often the reason for interference even though they are not being used.

    • Do not stand too close to your Wi-Fi router since a Wi-Fi signal is stronger and in many cases will "overlap" the connection.

    • Be aware of walls around you. Concrete and brick walls will often interrupt the signal, as it cannot pass through such thick walls.

    • Bluetooth signals cannot travel through water, which includes the human body. Make sure with wireless headphones to keep your source device and the receiver on the same side of your body.

    • Open spaces such as parks can cause issues for your devices, as open air is "bad" for any Bluetooth signal if it cannot reflect from objects around you.
  • In power ON mode press and hold the "Volume +" and "Play" buttons at the same time for more than 3 seconds -> Unit will power Off by itself. Now the unit is reset to factory default.
  • The new Boombox 2 does not feature the Indoor/Outdoor Mode. With the first generation Boombox, the Outdoor Mode was loud, but lacking sufficient bass. The Boombox 2 has both improved bass and loudness to create the perfect balanced sound for all environments.

     
     
  • You cannot download the JBL Portable App on a PC. This app is only available on mobile devices.
