When it comes to home audio, Vizio’s range of soundbars, subwoofers, and other audio equipment deliver a captivating, cinema-like audio experience. But to make the most of these devices, understanding the art of pairing is crucial.

This guide will offer you detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to pair your Vizio sub to your soundbar, subwoofer, get it into pairing mode, pair it to your TV, phone, and troubleshoot when Bluetooth pairing isn’t working.

How To Pair Vizio Sub To Soundbar


Pairing Vizio Sub to Soundbar

Vizio soundbars often come with a subwoofer that enhances the bass output, resulting in a more immersive audio experience. Here’s how to pair your Vizio sub with your soundbar:

  1. Power up: Plug in both your soundbar and subwoofer and turn them on.
  2. Get into pairing mode: Press the ‘Pair’ button located at the back of your subwoofer. The LED light will start blinking, indicating that the subwoofer is now in pairing mode.
  3. Automatic pairing: Your soundbar should automatically recognize and pair with the subwoofer. Once paired, the LED light on your subwoofer will become steady.

Pairing Vizio Subwoofer to Another Subwoofer

If you have two Vizio subwoofers and wish to pair them together, it’s important to note that most Vizio soundbars support only one subwoofer at a time. Therefore, pairing two subwoofers directly may not be possible.

However, some advanced soundbar models may support multiple subwoofers. In that case, refer to the user manual or consult Vizio customer service for specific instructions.

Putting Vizio Subwoofer in Pairing Mode

To put your Vizio subwoofer into pairing mode, simply press the ‘Pair’ button at the back of the subwoofer. The LED light will start to blink, indicating the subwoofer is ready to connect with other devices, such as the soundbar.

Pairing Vizio Subwoofer to TV

Generally, a Vizio subwoofer pairs with the soundbar, not the TV directly. To ensure that your subwoofer works while watching TV, follow these steps:

  1. Connect the soundbar to TV: Using an HDMI cable or optical cable, connect your soundbar to your TV.
  2. Pair subwoofer to soundbar: As detailed earlier, pair your subwoofer with your soundbar. Once this is done, the audio from your TV will play through the soundbar and the connected subwoofer.

Pairing Vizio Soundbar to Phone

Pairing your Vizio soundbar to your phone allows you to play audio directly from your mobile device. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Put soundbar in pairing mode: On your soundbar, press the ‘Bluetooth’ button to put it in pairing mode. You will see the Bluetooth LED blinking, indicating it’s ready to pair.
  2. Pair from phone: On your phone, go to ‘Settings’, then ‘Bluetooth’. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on, then look for the name of your soundbar in the list of available devices. Tap on it to pair.

Troubleshooting Vizio Bluetooth Pairing Not Working

If you’re having trouble with Bluetooth pairing, try the following solutions:

  1. Check power and connections: Ensure your devices are powered on and within range of each other.
  2. Restart devices: Sometimes, simply restarting your devices can resolve temporary issues.
  3. Reset Bluetooth: If the problem persists, you may need to reset the Bluetooth settings on your soundbar. Refer to your user manual for specific instructions.

In Conclusion

Pairing your Vizio sub to your soundbar, TV, or phone enhances your audio experience, turning your living room into a home theater.

With a bit of understanding and patience, you can quickly resolve any pairing issues. So, delve into the world of high-quality sound with confidence and make the most of your Vizio audio equipment.
