Why does the audio from the soundbar drop when connected via Bluetooth?

Last Update Date : Jan 17. 2018

* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.



If your network device is located near your soundbar, you might experience some audio drops while the device is playing. This can also reduce the soundbar's Bluetooth range to less than 2 meters.

If the audio drops when the soundbar is connected via bluetooth, please check the following:


■ Avoid placing any metal objects, electronic products and/or devices that may cause network interference near the soundbar.

■ Make sure not to place any network devices (i.e. modem/router, access point) near the soundbar. Network devices should be located more than 50cm away from the soundbar.      

■ Select a different frequency for your access point (AP) device. Most devices are set to 2.4 GHz, if your AP supports 5GHz we recommend to select this. Though 5GHz has a shorter range, this frequency is less affected by interference.
