What is the Difference Between JBL Connect and Connect Plus?

The JBL speakers I had heard good things about recently caught my attention as I was looking for a high-quality speaker. 

JBL speakers were recommended to me by friends, and they all loved them. 

My next purchase will be a JBL speaker, so I looked into various options.

I noticed that multiple speakers could be connected simultaneously while researching these speakers. 

JBL speakers are commonly used by my friends, so I wanted to get a speaker that could pair with theirs.

The result of this research was the discovery of some notable differences between JBL Connect and JBL Connect Plus.

How does the JBL Connect Plus differ from the Connect?

JBL Connect Plus has a limit of 30 speakers you can connect at once, which is the main difference between JBL Connect and JBL Connect Plus. It is possible to connect two speakers simultaneously with JBL Connect technology. You can connect up to 100 JBL speakers simultaneously with JBL Connect Plus technology. 

You do not need to continue reading if you just want to know how many speakers each technology can connect. 

You should keep in mind, however, that there are a few distinct differences between the two technologies that can influence your purchase decision. 

As a result, if I were you, I would keep reading to understand the differences between the two technologies more completely.

JBL Connect and Connect Plus are compatible?  

No, unfortunately. The JBL Connect and JBL Connect Plus technologies are incompatible with each other. 

JBL Connect-equipped speakers can only be connected with other JBL Connect-equipped speakers.

With the JBL Connect Plus technology, it works the same way. JBL Connect Plus speakers cannot be connected to JBL Connect speakers.

How does JBL Connect Plus work?  

JBL Connect Plus lets you connect your speakers. 

The speakers can play the same track when they’re connected. 

Party-goers sometimes use this to enhance the volume and range of the music they’re listening to.

JBL Connect Plus offers the same functionality as JBL Connect. It can connect up to two speakers at the same time. 

It limits the volume you can reach and the range you can cover with audio.

What is the maximum distance between JBL speakers when they are connected?  

There should be no more than 30 feet between the speakers that are connected. 

The connection will begin to break down once speakers are separated by more than 30 feet.

If the speakers are more than 30 feet apart, there may be an immediate disconnect between them, but you should begin to hear the audio going in and out. 

Whenever the audio becomes muffled or intermittent, you should move the speakers closer together.

It is also necessary to keep the device that you are using to source the music within 30 feet of the speakers.

Is the JBL Charge 3 Connect or Connect Plus?  

JBL Connect is on the JBL Charge 3. That means you can only connect the JBL Charge 3 with other JBL speakers with JBL Connect.

What are the differences between PartyBoost and Connect Plus?  

There is only a slight difference between PartyBoost and JBL Connect Plus technology. 

By using these technologies, you will be able to connect multiple JBL speakers to play the same sound. 

The JBL technologies will also enable the same sound to be played on 100 or more JBL speakers simultaneously.

It is the distance you can put between the speakers as well as between the speakers and the music source that is the key difference between these two technologies.

It is possible to be up to 30 feet away from the speaker and still maintain uninterrupted audio output thanks to JBL Connect Plus technology.

The PartyBoost technology allows you to stand up to 60 feet away from the speakers and still have uninterrupted audio.

PartyBoost technology is built into the newly released JBL speakers, although I would not recommend upgrading your speaker just to take advantage of the new technology. 

Despite being a nice addition, the new technology does not offer a substantial enough improvement to make the upgrade worthwhile.

What technology does my JBL speaker have?  

There should be an indication on the back of the speaker regarding the type of technology it possesses. 

The JBL Connect symbol appears to be a sideways hourglass. 

The JBL Connect Plus symbol is composed of the same elements as the JBL Connect symbol, except that the sideways hourglass of the logo is accompanied by a plus symbol.

Your speaker will display these symbols near the on/off and volume buttons.
