Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Smart device

You can connect a Bluetooth device to the Soundbar and enjoy music with high quality stereo sound, all without wires! After the smart device and soundbar are connected, music played on the device will play from the soundbar.

Connect the Soundbar to a Bluetooth Device

1. Press the Source button on the soundbar or the remote to change modes.

Bluetooth 1

2. Set the soundbar to BT mode. BT READY will be shown on the front display of the soundbar.

Bluetooth 2

3. Select [AV] Samsung Soundbar K450 from the Bluetooth menu on the Bluetooth device you want to connect.

5. Play a media file on your phone. The sound will output from the soundbar.

General notes

  ● If asked for a PIN code when connecting a Bluetooth device, enter <0000>.

  ● Only one Bluetooth device can be paired at a time.

  ● The Bluetooth connection will be terminated when you turn the Soundbar off.

  ● The Soundbar may not perform Bluetooth search or connection correctly under the following circumstances:

    - If there is a strong electrical field around the Soundbar.
    - If several Bluetooth devices are simultaneously paired with the Soundbar.
    - If the Bluetooth device is turned off, not in place, or malfunctions.

  ● Note that such devices as microwave ovens, wireless LAN adaptors, fluorescent lights, and gas stoves use the same frequency range as the Bluetooth device, which can cause electric interference.

  ● The Soundbar supports SBC data (44.1kHz, 48kHz).

  ● Connect only to a Bluetooth device that supports the A2DP (AV) function.

  ● You cannot connect the Soundbar to a Bluetooth device that supports only the HF (Hands Free) function.

  ● Once the set has been paired with a device, if the soundbar is in DIN, AUX, or USB mode and you select [AV] Samsung Soundbar K450 from your Bluetooth device's list, the set will automatically change to BT mode (the Bluetooth device and the Soundbar must have been previously paired at least once).

  ● Soundbar will appear in the Bluetooth device’s searched devices list only when the Soundbar is displaying BT READY.

  ● In the TV SoundConnect mode, the Soundbar cannot be paired or connected to another Bluetooth device.
