How To Pair Vizio Soundbar To Subwoofer?

Whether you use Vizio subwoofers or ones from a third party, you can pair them quickly with simple steps. 

Vizio subwoofers

Frequently, the Vizio Soundbar fails to link to your Vizio subwoofer. The reason is that the established Bluetooth connection gets lost.

In such a situation, you must fix your speaker to the woofer. This task is pretty straightforward.

Step 1: Turn on the pairing mode in the woofer.

Start by switching on the woofer to be connected with your soundbar. 

There is a pairing button on the rear of your subwoofer. Press it for five to six seconds until your LED light flashes. 

Once you see the blinking light, you may withdraw your finger from this button.

Step 2: Turn on the pairing mode in the soundbar.

Turn on your soundbar’s power switch after you’ve set the woofer in its pairing mode. The procedure is the same.

Hold your power button for five seconds, after you can see three flashes of light signifying that your speaker has successfully connected to the woofer.

Step 3: Test your audio

Now, play any music to verify if you have paired the devices properly. You can easily adjust the volume then. 

If there is no sound, try doing a power cycle and reconnecting your devices. 

Make sure you have turned off the Eco-mode (“Energy Star”) and installed the updated version of your devices. 

You can turn off the Eco-mode by pressing the power button and the “Volume Down” button for five to ten seconds. 

Other subwoofers

Setting up a whole home theater setup is a challenge, so some people try to link the Vizio device with their existing subwoofer.

Let’s take a look at how to connect the soundbar to subwoofers of the third-party.

Step 1: Place the woofer correctly

To begin, ensure that you have correctly plugged the subwoofer into a power outlet and it is close enough proximity to the speaker.

Step 2: Find your pairing button.

Next, find your pairing button. Each soundbar now has a distinctive button layout. To discover the specific button, you may either consult the handbook or search the internet.

Step 3: Set the pairing mode

Because the pairing procedure for the third-party device differs from your Vizio subwoofer, you must read the handbook once.

The common method, though, is to press and hold the power button for a while, after the sub will blink a light indicating that it can start pairing state.

Step 4: Pair your devices

Press the soundbar’s power button until your LED light flashes, signifying your third-party sub has appropriately connected with your speaker. 

Step 3: Test the audio

After you’ve finished the connection, you may listen to music to confirm that your devices are working correctly. 

Why Are My Subwoofers Not Connecting?

There are some causes for this problem. First, you have to ensure that you have connected and plugged your device firmly into the correct sports. 

Next, check the fuses, power cables, and outlets if they are working. 

When subwoofers are active, they usually have a “standby” light that illuminates. Connect it to a wall outlet, power strip, and surge protector if there is no light.

Another cause may be the soundbar. You need to update your device’s software by connecting to the SmartCast app. 

Then, reset your device to factory settings by pressing the “Volume Down” and “Input” buttons for a while. 

Next, start the pairing mode, and the subwoofers should pair properly with the speaker.

How To Reset Vizio Soundbars?

What if the methods in the previous section can’t help with the connection? In this case, you may need to reset the soundbars.

Resetting also helps solve other problems related to the operation of your devices. 

Switch off your device for ten seconds before starting the reset, then turn it back on. It can also fix any issue in some circumstances.

Then, follow the three following methods: 

  • Hold down the “Bluetooth” and “Input” buttons for five seconds each. Your device will restart. If it doesn’t work, move on to the next step.
  • Press and hold the “Volume Down” and “Input” buttons for five seconds. If your device still can’t restart, try the final method.
  • Press and hold the “Volume Up” and “Input” buttons for five seconds.
