Charging the battery
When the battery level is below 10%, you will hear a sound that will remind you to charge it. Plug the mini USB end of the provided USB cable into the Charging port (11) and the other USB end to any device with a 5 V USB charging port (PC, USB wall charger, car charger, etc.) to charge the battery. The Charge indicator (10) lights up red and switches off once the charging process has been completed. The charging time is approximately 3 hours.
- Use a 5 V 2 A AC/DC power adapter.
- Do not leave your Fabric Box 1+ completely discharged for a long time.
Press Change function (2) until you find Bluetooth mode while your Fabric Box 1+ is on. Once you have done this, press and hold the same button for 2 seconds, until the Function indicator (6) starts flashing. At this point, your speaker and smartphone or tablet can be paired.
Once "Fabric Box 1+" appears on your device screen, press "connect". The devices will be connected immediately and without codes. You will hear a sound that confirms both devices have been paired correctly.
At this point, you will be able to start playback on your smartphone or tablet. The Bluetooth wireless connection's range is up to 20 meters.
Your Fabric Box 1+ will be automatically paired when you turn it on once again, provided that the Bluetooth connection on your smartphone or tablet is enabled.
In order to pair it with another Bluetooth device, press and hold Change function (2) until you hear a confirmation sound. By doing so, the current synchronization stops and the speaker starts a new search of Bluetooth® devices.
Note: Your Fabric Box 1+ turns off automatically after 5 minutes if Bluetooth® mode is enabled and not synchronized with any device.
Call control (Hands-free function)
You can control your calls from the speaker itself. To do so, pair the Fabric Box with your smartphone.
When receiving a call, the song you are listening to stops and the ringing tone sounds instead. Press Play/ Pause/ Call control/ TWS (4) to answer an incoming call and press it once again to hang up. The song will automatically resume afterwards.
Press and hold the Play/ Pause/ Call control/ TWS (4) when receiving an incoming call to reject it.
Note: If you receive an incoming call while TWS function is enabled, you will only hear the voice of the person who calls through the speaker connected to your smartphone (left channel).*
TWS (True Wireless Stereo)
This option makes it possible to wirelessly connect another Fabric Box to hear music with twice as much power and create a stereo sound system made up of two different channels: left and right.
To do so, switch on one of the Fabric Box and connect it to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Once you've done this, switch on the other Fabric Box, enable Bluetooth mode and press and hold Play/ Pause/ Call control/ TWS (4) for 2 seconds. You will hear a sound confirming that both devices have been successfully synchronized.
From that moment on, you can start Bluetooth playback to hear music through both speakers at the same time. The first connected speaker will be fed with the left channel (L) and the other one with the right channel (R).
If you want to disable this function, press and hold Play/ Pause/ Call control/ TWS (4) and both devices will be disconnected.
Switch to the next/ previous track and adjust volume from any speaker while TWS mode is enabled. If you turn up the volume of any of the speakers, you will be turning up the volume of both of them at the same time.
Note: *This is only possible if Bluetooth mode is enabled. In all other playback modes (USB, microSD, FM radio or line-in) a TWS connection is not possible.
Auxiliary audio input
Your Fabric Box also features an Audio-in (7) for 3.5 mm mini jack to connect your external devices using the provided audio cable.
Note: It is not possible to control music playback from the speaker while using this mode. You will have to use the music player to control playback functions.
Before using the FM radio function, it is necessary to carry out a search of all stations available. The radio stations will be saved to the speaker's internal memory. It is therefore not necessary to carry out a new search each time you switch it on. You will only have to do this if you place the device in a new location or if you change the frequency of the saved radio station.
In order to carry out a search of all radio stations, press Change function (2) until the FM radio mode appears on screen. Press and hold Change function (2) for 2 seconds. The Function indicator (6) flashes repeatedly while carrying out a search. Once the process is completed, the LED flashes slowly. The process may take a few minutes. Once the search has been completed, press and hold Volume +/ Next (5) or Volume -/ Back (3)* to select the radio station that you want to hear from all saved radio stations.
If you place the speaker somewhere else, you will have to carry out a new search to obtain a proper radio wave reception.
Your Fabric Box will save the last selected radio station when you turn it off and on once again.
Important: Plug the provided charging cable into the device to work as an external antenna and improve radio reception. To do this, plug the cable into the Charging port (11) and do not connect the other cable end. Start a new radio station search as described above.
Important: The battery charging process may interfere with radio signals depending on the AC/DC power adapter used.
The device plays .mp3 and .wav files from microSD cards of up to 64 GB. Once the microSD card has been inserted, the Function indicator (6) starts blinking. This means that the device is reading the memory card and the contents will play automatically after a few seconds.
If you turn off the speaker or remove the storage unit, the internal memory will save the moment when you paused playback. If you connect the same removable storage unit once again, playback will resume and the last song that you listened will be then played.
Press and hold Volume +/ Next (5) or Volume -/ Back (3) to fast-forward and rewind a song.
Press and hold the Play/ Pause/ Call/ TWS (4) for 3 seconds to enable shuffle mode. You will hear a sound to confirm the selected mode has been enabled. Shuffle mode will be disabled automatically when switching off the speaker.
The root folders and files of your external cards or sticks will be read in chronological order and the songs included in your folders in alphabetical order.
Here you have a diagram of the reading order:
