Stereo and Party mode

You can pair your Bose speakers together to play in the following modes using the Bose® Connect app (recommended) or the speakers' control buttons:

  • Party mode (left and right speakers in unison)
  • Stereo mode (left speaker and right speaker separate)

Refer to your Bose owner's guide to determine if your secondary speaker supports these modes.
