If you are looking for ways to improve your home theater sound quality we can help you in clearing your doubts. Connecting two subwoofers to one soundbar can greatly enhance the sound intensity and besides making it loud, the sound quality will be improved.
Connecting wireless subwoofers to a soundbar is as easy a task as eating a pie but when it comes to connecting two subwoofers at the same time to a soundbar wirelessly then the situation becomes tiresome. This is because wireless connectivity is mediated through Bluetooth technology and Bluetooth connections are made one at a time.
This means that you can connect one subwoofer to a soundbar wirelessly using Bluetooth and when it comes to a second subwoofer connection the first will be removed through the connection channel or you would have to use a second soundbar.
In other words, Bluetooth connectivity requires two subwoofers to be connected with two soundbars and this is not an economical or practical solution to have as many soundbars as subs.
So, what to do in this situation to make a single connection with all of these three devices (two subs and one soundbar)? To get the answer to this query you would have to read our review in the coming paragraphs all through the end to get your queries answered. Here in this guide, we have tried to assist you as much as possible in making a connection between two subwoofers and one soundbar wirelessly.
Using Two Different Models Of Subwoofers:
Most of the time users upgrade the subs to the latest models with the older ones still working and in use. In this situation, you can make use of both the new and old subwoofers to get loud and crisp clear audio coming out through your soundbar. To connect both of these subs to a soundbar you have to keep in mind that both subs are operated on wireless connectivity and have built-in Bluetooth buttons.
After fulfilling the hardware requirements of subs and soundbars you can mediate a connection between them but it will be a tricky one as two subs will not support Bluetooth connection to a soundbar simultaneously.
When you connect the first sub to your soundbar it will be a perfect Bluetooth paired connection but when the second sub is tried to pair either the first subwoofer will be disconnected or the second one will not be allowed pairing by your soundbar. This would be because the Bluetooth technology of the soundbar allows for one identity to be paired at a time.
Now without any further ado, let us head toward How To Connect Two Wireless Subwoofers To One Soundbar. In the coming paragraphs, you can get a systematic procedure to connect your subs with a soundbar. Therefore keep reading the article while being hooked to your smartphone screens.
How To Connect Two Wireless Subwoofers To One Soundbar
Before heading for the process, let us first remind you that these steps are meant for connecting the subs to your home theater soundbar and this will make use of the RCA splitter.
If you are using a high-tech and latest home theater model at your home there are high chances that it allows for more than one subwoofer audio output on the audio amplifier circuit. In that case, you can connect as many subwoofers as the number of available subwoofer outputs on the amplifier circuit.
But if your audio amplifier has a single unit subwoofer output then you can make use of the RCA splitter to channel a single subwoofer to two outputs. In this way, your subwoofer audio output can host two subs at the same time and your soundbar will play the sound of both the subwoofers simultaneously.
Below given are the instructions by following which you would be able to connect two wireless subwoofers to a single soundbar.
- Power on your soundbar
- Press the Bluetooth button on the front or lower back panel of the soundbar.
- Once the Bluetooth button is pressed your soundbar will automatically enter into the pairing mode and all the Bluetooth media source devices in the vicinity of the soundbar will be able to pair with your soundbar.
- Now, turn on the first subwoofer. (if you have one conventional and one latest model, a newer model will be a better option for pairing first).
- Press the Bluetooth button on your new/first subwoofer and it will enter pairing mode.
- After confirming the pairing, your first subwoofer and soundbar will be connected.
- Now open the settings of the paired subwoofer and go to Bluetooth settings. Among the connection settings, you can locate the connecting point between the amplifier of the paired subwoofer and the soundbar.
- After the connection point is located you can run the cable between the two points from unpaired subs to the paired soundbar.
In a nutshell, you can connect the first subwoofer wirelessly to your soundbar and then use an audio cable (purchased according to the audio output port of your wireless speaker like an AUX cable) to make a connection between the wireless subwoofer and the soundbar.
In this way, one subwoofer will be connected using Bluetooth and the other one will be connected using AUX cable and both of these subs will be playing the same media as played by the soundbar.
