How do I connect to Bluetooth?

  1. Make sure the speaker is within range of your Bluetooth device (no more than 100 ft. / 30.5 m away).
  2. Press the Bluetooth button on the speaker.
  3. Navigate to your Bluetooth device’s setup screen. Then find and select Party Splash. Do not connect to iSP149_BLE; this is reserved exclusively for connecting to the ION Sound XP™ app. If your Bluetooth device prompts for a pairing code, enter 0000. Once a Bluetooth device is connected, the LED near the Bluetooth button will be lit solid blue.


How far can the Bluetooth connection go?

The Bluetooth connection is rated up to 100 feet, or 30.5 meters.


  1. Power on Party Splash ™ and the other compatible ION speaker.
  2. Double press the Bluetooth button on one speaker. Repeat this for the second speaker. The speakers will search for each other to link as their blue LEDs begin to blink fast.
  3. When the two speakers are “linked,” one speaker’s blue LED will be lit solid, while the other speaker’s blue LED will blink slowly to indicate it’s ready to pair the stereo-linked speakers to your Bluetooth device.
  4. Navigate to your Bluetooth device’s setup screen, find “Party Splash” and connect. To disconnect, double press the Bluetooth button on one of the two speakers.

Note: It may take up to 1 minute to make the connection.
