Method 1: Automatic Pairing

  1. Power On Devices: Turn on the soundbar by pressing the ‘Power’ button on its remote control or directly on it. Do the same for the subwoofer.
  2. Check LED Indicators: Most subwoofers have an LED indicator on the back or front. Upon turning on, this LED may flash, indicating it is searching for a soundbar to pair with.
  3. Wait: Wait for a minute or two. The subwoofer should automatically find and pair with the soundbar.
  4. Confirmation: Once paired, the LED indicator on the subwoofer will usually change color or stay solid (often blue or green), indicating a successful pairing.

Method 2: Manual Pairing

If the subwoofer and soundbar do not pair automatically, you can try to pair them manually.

  1. Locate Pairing Button: There should be a button on the back of your subwoofer and the soundbar, often labeled as ‘ID SET,’ ‘PAIR,’ or ‘SYNC.’
  2. Press the Soundbar Button: Hold the pairing button on the soundbar for a few seconds. You might hear a sound or a light flash, signaling it’s ready to pair.
  3. Press the Subwoofer Button: Within 30 seconds, press the pairing button on the subwoofer. Hold it for a few seconds.
  4. Confirmation: Wait for the LED indicator on the subwoofer to change to a steady color, indicating successful pairing.

Method 3: Through Remote or App

  1. Navigate to Menu: Use the soundbar’s remote control to navigate the system settings menu.
  2. Go to Audio Settings: Scroll to the ‘Audio’ or ‘Sound Settings’ option and select it.
  3. Find Subwoofer Option: Look for an option that mentions the subwoofer, like ‘Subwoofer Pairing,’ ‘Subwoofer Connection,’ or something similar.
  4. Initiate Pairing: Follow the on-screen instructions to initiate the pairing process. Once complete, the subwoofer should be paired with the soundbar.
  5. App Control: If a smartphone app can control your soundbar, you can usually find the subwoofer pairing option in the app settings.

  • Firmware Updates: Make sure that both the soundbar and the subwoofer have the latest firmware.
  • Proximity: Keep the subwoofer within 15 feet of the soundbar during pairing.
  • Interference: To minimize interference, turn off or move other wireless devices away from the soundbar and subwoofer.
