You can connect up to 100 JBL speakers together, as long as they are newer models with the Connect+ or PartyBoost feature. And keep in mind that Connect+ speakers cannot connect with PartyBoost speakers and vice versa.

How Many JBL Speakers Can You Connect Together?
You’re in luck if you want to connect multiple JBL speakers. You can connect up to 100 JBL speakers together, which is pretty crazy. It’s unlikely that you’ll ever have or need to connect this many speakers, but it is possible.
However, there are a few things to consider with that number. You can’t connect just any JBL speaker to any other speaker. The only speaker models that can connect to one another and reach the 100 mark are those with the Connect+ or PartyBoost feature.
I’ll give you a breakdown of which JBL models currently have those features in the next section, but make sure you purchase models with those features if you want the ability to connect multiple speakers to one another.
What JBL Speakers Can Be Paired Together?
As I just mentioned, only JBL speakers with the Connect+ or PartyBoost feature can connect together. And you can only connect PartyBoost speakers to other PartyBoost models and Connect+ speakers to other Connect+ models.
The current lineup of JBL speakers with the Connect+ feature are:
- JBL Xtreme 2
- JBL Pulse 3
- JBL Charge 4
- JBL Boombox
The current lineup of JBL speakers with the PartyBoost feature are:
- JBL Flip 5
- JBL Pulse 4
- JBL Xtreme 3
- JBL Boombox 2
- JBL Charge 5
Let’s break this down a bit so you understand which speakers you can and cannot connect. You cannot connect a JBL Xtreme 2 to a JBL Xtreme 3. The JBL Xtreme 2 has Connect+, while the JBL Xtreme 3 has PartyBoost.
But you can connect a JBL Flip 5 to a JBL Pulse 4 and throw up to 98 JBL Boombox 2’s in there if you want to.
If you have an older model JBL speaker that isn’t on either of these lists, you probably can’t pair it to another speaker at all. But double-check your owner’s manual or reach out to JBL customer service to find out for sure.
How to Pair JBL Speakers Together
Pairing JBL speakers together is simple, and you can check out an entire post I wrote on that subject here.
But I’ll list some quick instructions here to get you started.
If you have Connect+ speakers you want to pair together, first pair one of the speakers with your phone or other audio source using Bluetooth. Then start to play music or other audio on your phone.
All you need to do to connect to other Connect+ speakers is turn them on and press the Connect button. The speakers might take a few seconds to connect, but then you’ll be all set.
If you have PartyBoost speakers, the process starts out the same with connecting your phone to the first speaker through Bluetooth. But then you need to download the JBL Portable app to manage the other connections.
Power on the other PartyBoost speakers you want to connect and then manage all of the connections within the JBL portable app.
Why Connect JBL Speakers Together?
You might want to connect multiple JBL speakers together for a few different reasons. And although I’ve never seen anyone connect 100 of them, I bet that would end up sounding pretty sweet.
The first big reason is just to get a more authentic audio experience. Most stereo systems utilize multiple speakers to give you a stereo or surround-sound listening experience. You could pair two together for stereo and four or more together for surround sound.
Another reason would be to extend the range of your Bluetooth connection. Since the speakers essentially bounce off one another, you could put a connected speaker farther away from the audio source than with a single speaker.
You also just might want the effect of increased volume and overall audio power that comes with connecting a bunch of speakers together. This could be cool at a party or other event where you have a lot of people together at once.
There are plenty of cool and creative ways why you would want to connect JBL speakers together. It’s a great feature that JBL offers and is worth taking advantage of if you want to expand your listening horizons.
Here are a few quick answers to some of the most frequently asked questions related to how many JBL speakers you can connect together.
How many JBL Xtreme 3 speakers can you pair together?
You can pair up to 100 JBL Xtreme 3 speakers together. The JBL Xtreme 3 has the PartyBoost feature, which allows you to connect multiple speakers together easily. It’s rare that you would have 100 of these speakers, but you can connect that many together.
Can JBL Flip 4 and Flip 6 connect?
The JBL Flip 4 and Flip 6 cannot connect with one another. This is because the Flip 4 has Connect+ features, and the the Flip 6 has PartyBoost. You can only connect Connect+ to other Connect+ speakers and PartyBoost to PartyBoost speakers.
How many JBL Flip 6 can you pair together?
You can pair up to 100 JBL Flip 6 speakers together. It’s very unlikely that you’ll ever have that many of these speakers at the same time, but since they all have the PartyBoost feature, you can pair a hundred if you want to.
Can you connect 4 JBL speakers together?
You can connect 4 JBL speakers together as long as they are all equipped with either the Connect+ or PartyBoost feature. And you can only connect PartyBoost speakers with other speakers with the same feature. The same goes for Connect+ speakers.
Can JBL Flip 4 and 5 connect?
The JBL Flip 4 and Flip 5 speakers cannot connect. This is because the Flip 4 has the Connect+ feature, and the Flip 5 has the PartyBoost feature. You can only connect Connect+ speakers with other Connect+ and PartyBoost speakers with other PartyBoost-enabled models.
Connecting up to 100 JBL speakers together might sound cool, but I bet it would be pretty complicated. It would take a while to set up, and you might have a few technical issues along the way. I think connecting a dozen or less is much more practical.
Remember that there are only a handful of specific JBL speaker models that can connect together. If you have an older model, you might not be able to connect it at all. But any newer model should have the Connect+ or PartyBoost features.
