Most users like to pair their speakers to phones of one model or another, but some like to pair them to TVs and computers as well, so we will explain how to do all of these different types of pairs.
How To Pair Altec Lansing Speaker To An Android Phone
To pair your Altec Lansing Speaker to an Android mobile phone you need to press and hold the power button on the Altec Lansing Speaker for between three to five seconds for the speaker to turn on and begin the process of syncing with your android phone.
You will know that the speaker is ready to sync with the phone when it starts flashing after the blue or red light on the front of the speaker has come on to show the speaker is awake.
When the speaker’s light is flashing it is time to turn to your Android phone. Once you have your phone on then go to settings and tap connections.
If your Altec Speaker is flashing then turn your Bluetooth on and look through Bluetooth (on your Android) for the Altec Lansing Speaker. It should show up and if it does then click on it on your phone and the phone will be automatically connected to the speaker system.
How To Pair Altec Lansing Speaker With An iPhone
As you might imagine, the process is slightly different for an iPhone. With an iPhone you must do pretty much the same process as with your Android – turn on the speaker, turn on the Bluetooth on your phone but the difference is that with an iPhone you must look for available devices. In the available devices tab you should find the Altec Lansing Speaker.
Whilst the process is pretty much the same as with an Android phone, it is worth checking to make sure that you check under “available devices” rather than “settings” as you won’t be able to pair your Altec Lansing Speaker to your iPhone.

Search in your computer’s settings for Bluetooth and once it appears then open it and go into the Bluetooth menu. (The easiest way to search is by typing “Bluetooth” into the search bar. This saves you the trouble of scrolling through menus looking for the Bluetooth option).
Once you are in the Bluetooth menu then you need to turn your Bluetooth on your laptop (or desktop) on. Once you have done that, wait a couple of seconds and then when you open it up you will find the option to add a device.
When you click add another device then your Altec Lansing Speaker should show up for you to connect it to your computer.
Now that we have explained how to add your Altec Lansing Speaker to a Windows 10 computer, let’s explain how to add it to an Apple Mac computer.
How To Pair Altec Lansing Speaker With An Apple Mac
You might imagine that the method to connect your speaker to an Apple Mac is somewhat different from that with connecting it to Windows 10.
However, it isn’t much different at all. In fact, all you have to do is turn the speakers on, wait for the flashing light and then turn your computer on.
Once your computer is on, all you have to do is to open the Bluetooth on your Apple Mac and you click connect, then you simply need to wait for the option to connect to your Altec Lansing Speaker to connect. Once it comes up you should be able to connect in moments.
How To Pair Altec Lansing Speaker With A TV
There are two different methods to connect your Altec Lansing Speaker to your TV and we’ll explain both methods.
The first method involved a physical connection between the TV and your Altec Lansing Speaker. To do this you need a high-quality HDMI cable.
You need to have a high-quality connection between the HDMI cable, your TV and your speaker because otherwise the music you will be playing won’t be of the highest quality.
You will want either a high speed or an ultra-high speed HDMI cable because if you don’t have either then you will not be able to get the same kind of quality.
Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI slot on your TV and then insert it into the HDMI Arc port on the back of your Altec Lansing Speaker. (Note that not every speaker will have this input. Some portable speakers won’t be able to connect in this fashion).
Once both are properly connected and inserted then you should be able to play any music on your TV through your Altec Lansing Speaker.
The alternative method to connect your Altec Lansing Speaker to your TV is to do it via Bluetooth.
Of course, your TV may not have Bluetooth but if it does then you should turn your Altec Lansing Speaker on, then turn your TV on and either go into settings or apps depending on what make or model your TV is.
Once you have found the Bluetooth app then open it and connect.
Once you have connected then wait a few seconds for the TV to pick up the Altec Lansing Speakers signal and automatically connect.
