    Two Bluetooth Speakers at once! Please?

    I've lurked for a while, finally joined. Great forum, LOVE my tablet.


    Here's my issue. I bought 3 bluetooth speakers. Creative Labs D80, D80 & D100.

    I'd like to connect to all of these at once. Individually, I can connect with no problem. They sound great.

    But I really, really want to connect to more than one at a time. I'd even settle for two at once. I realize that the Bluetooth settings prevent this. However, I found an app that claims this is possible but I'm having no luck.

    App is: Smart Bluetooth widget Pro @ the play store. It doesn't connect to both though. It will boot the other speaker each time. I emailed their support and haven't heard anything yet.



    Anyone have any suggestions besides saying it's not possible? It doesn't seem like that hefty of a task.

    Welcome Aw4g63...I've had friends try to do this--without much success. While you can hook up a lot of blueteeth (ie. half a dozen different devices), you can't seem to multicast--or toss a signal to two of the same kind at once. I've heard they are working on a couple apps. Buddies have used cabling, sending the headphone line out to red/white stereo left/right splitter...with varying success. Seems like a pretty simple ask to just toss a signal to a pair of speakers, doesn't it? Bargh, no way that I know of. Cheers

    Can't do analog audio out and bluetooth at the same time either. Analog audio out overrides and stops bluetooth.

    The Supertooth Disco 2 Twin speakers allow you to use two at one time with stereo sound.

    Lightbulb Idea....????

    My .02 worth...


    Send the 3 Bluetooth speakers back to the store, or wherever you got them,
    then buy a home stereo system that accepts blue tooth signal (From your tablet
    to the stereo), then from the home stereo, you can add a bazillion wireless
    speakers wherever you want in your house.

    IF you want to take the speakers with you portable, find a "hub" that will hook
    via USB or Blue Tooth to the tablet and then you are set.

    Just a thought, maybe you're going about this in the wrong direction,
    maybe you need to re-think the hardware, not the software?

    Good luck!
    Peace!

    Pretty much, I tried to get away cheap and it's obvious why no one sells a system like this. I'm finding that the Bluetooth in this tablet isn't anything like Wifi. If I'm on the other side of my home the signal gets choppy which is just horrible.


    I'll probably hang onto these for my boat and dock but for my home I'm going to just go with a SONO's system. I was just reluctant to spend that amount of money but their audio quaility blows these things away along with the software interface.



    Plus those people never even replied back about their app. Refund time, I guess.

    This is not an issue with the tablet, but with Bluetooth. Bluetooth was always designed to only connect to one device at a time. There are now some devices that will switch between "hi-fi" (forget name) mode and headset mode, but that is the reciever, and it still only does one at a time. (so you can have a "media device" and a separate "phone" hooked to the same "headset")

    Yeah, we're all pretty aware it's the Bluetooth functionality and not the tablet.
