Connect them and enjoy the Multiroom mode

You can connect several speakers to your private Wi-Fi network and control them using your smartphone, tablet or different devices simultaneously.

Once the first speaker's initial settings have been set, select the "+" option and follow the steps described in the "Initial settings" section to connect your second Energy Wi-Fi speaker.

Repeat the same steps to connect more speakers. You can connect up to 8 speakers in Multiroom mode.

Control the music on each speaker with this app. Each speaker is represented by one track. You can play different music content on each speaker or the same song through all of them simultaneously.


Individual Multiroom Mode

This Multiroom mode is set by default. Each speaker will play music independently and you can control each of them using the application or interacting directly with the device by touching the top display. You will know that this play mode is active by looking the app since each device will appear in one line within the "List of devices" menu.


Synchronized Multiroom Mode

This synchronized Multiroom mode enables to play the same music on all speakers at the same time. In order to define the play mode settings using the app, please go to "List of devices" in the app and press the device that you want to connect to other speaker and then, drag it to another track maintaining contact. Wait a few seconds and you will see that both devices are now synchronized. The synchronized tracks will appear on the app screen. This way, you will create groups comprising a master speaker and the rest of speakers.

You can assign a different channel to each speaker.

  • L = Left channel
  • R = Right channel
  • LR = Stereo

The synchronized mode remains active until it is disabled manually, so if you change the master speaker's play mode through the CHANGE FUNCTION (4) button, for instance, to Bluetooth mode, you will be able to stream the contents via Bluetooth to all synchronized speakers.

To enable the Individual Multiroom Mode again you only have to press on the synchronized secondary speaker and once selected, drag it under the dotted line on screen. You will see that the white broken line disappears. Wait a few seconds and the processto end the synchronized mode will be completed.

How to connect to the speaker's own network

The Energy Multiroom speakers create their own Wi-Fi network in order to interact with all other devices that belong to the same product range. These networks can be identified easily since the default name follows the "Energy Multiroom_XXXX" structure in which XXXX is a unique indicator of each device. The network's name can certainly be modified accesing the device setup wizard. For more information, please see "Wi-Fi setup wizard".

You can connect directly to the Wi-Fi network created by your speaker. This network is encrypted by default and uses a WAP-PSK (AES) password. The default password is 0123456789. We recommend to change this password for another one that you can easily remember. You will be able to do this from the application, through the "Device information" menu, or from the device setup wizard. For more information, please see "Wi-Fi setup wizard".

The main advantage of this mode is that:

  • You don't need a router.

Limitations:

  • You won't have access to the Internet on the device that you're currently using.

How to connect your speaker to your PC

The Energy Multiroom speakers use a wireless communication protocol from Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) to communicate with each other via the Wi-Fi network that they have created. This gives you the possibility to connect the speaker to other devices that work with these types of protocols such as devices with Linux or Windows operating systems. It can also be used with AirPlay protocol (Mac OS).

Charging devices

Your Energy Multiroom Tower Wi-Fi includes two USB CHARGING PORTS (12) to connect an USB cable and charge other devices such as smartphones, tablets or MP3 Players, even if the tower is playing music.

Technical specifications of USB CHARGING PORTS:

  • Voltage = 5V
  • Current = 2A

Any device that requires more than 5V voltage cannot be charged.

How to change the speaker's language

You can change the speaker's language using the app. Access the speaker's settings by pressing the Settings icon that appears on the right upper corner of the audio track:

Then, select "Speaker info" and the menu to select the speaker's language will appear. There are two languages available: English and Spanish.

How to make your speaker connect to your Wi-Fi network

You have two alternative options to establish the connection apart from the standard procedure that has been described in the "Initial settings" section.

The first option consists in connecting to the speaker's network. For more information please see the "How to connect to your speaker's network". Once the connection has been established, you need to access the device intallation wizard and force the speaker to connect to a specific network, as explained in the "Wi-Fi setup wizard" section.

The second option to connect the speaker consists in using the app. This option is only available for Android devices. If after completing the device connection process you get an error message, you can access a window with the steps to set up the Wi-Fi network and restart searching. Press "Manually connect to a network".

At this moment you have to run the app in the background (without closing it) and access your device Wi-Fi settings. You will have to connect to the speaker's Wi-Fi network next. For more information please see "How to connect to the speaker's network". Once you have done this, restore the app to full-screen again so that you return to the point where you were. Now the "Next" option, which was hidden, will appear on the screen upper corner.

Press this button to access the menu with all networks that can be accessed from the speaker. Select the network you want and set it up if necessary. This way, you will have forced the speaker to connect to your private network.

Minimum router requirements

In order for the speakers to work via Wi-Fi correctly, the router of your private network must fulfill the following requirements:

  • For the Wi-Fi, you will need a 2.4 GHz band. The Multiroom system is not compatible with 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands.

  • It is necessary that the net to which you connect the speaker is encrypted with a WAP PSK key via AES or that it doesn't use a password at all.

  • The router has to support the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) in order to enable the communication with the speakers.

  • The net to which you want to connect the speaker has to enable the SSID broadcast.

  • Considerations related to advanced router settings that can cause problems:

  • Assign static IP addresses.

  • Filter the connections by MAC adresses.

  • The router is being used as a portal. If in order to access the Internet it is necessary to set up a net access code from an Internet browser, it won't be possible to set up the speaker so that it can connect to these type of routers.

  • Network environments with high levels of noise or a low performance level between router and speaker can result in mistakes that affect settings. Please verify that the distance between the speaker and the router is not excessively long and that the Wi-Fi channel is not overflowed.

Wi-Fi setup wizard

Your Energy Multiroom Tower Wi-Fi comes with a Wi-Fi setup wizard to adjust all the Wi-Fi parameters of your speaker.
There are two options to run the setup wizard:

  1. The first one consists in connecting to the network's Tower. In order to know how to connect to this net, please see the "How to connect to the speaker's net" section and access the 10.10.10.254. IPS address from an Internet browser.

  2. The second option consists in accesing the speaker's IP address from a device connected to the same network as the speaker using an Internet browser. This IP address appears in the "Speaker info" option within the apps settings menu.

Once you have accessed, the "Wi-Fi" menu will appear. You will access the speaker's network information through this settings menu. The active network's name will appear on top of the screen while a list of all available networks will be shown below. If you select any network from the list, the active Wi-Fi network selected for your speaker will change to that one.

Within the "Settings" menu we will find three tabs. The "Status" tab contains general information on the device such as specifications, firmware versions or the IP address if we are connected to any network.

In the "System" tab you will find the option to change the language of the Setup wizard. It is necessary to save all modifications by pressing the "Save" button. The speaker's firmware can be updated manually or online. You can also restore the default settings to return to the state by default.

The "Network" tab offers you the possibility of changing the password, the type of encryption as well as the name of the speaker's Wi-Fi network.
