How to stereo link ALL 3 CHANNELS over to the second linked Trouper

I really like the feature of the bluetooth connection between my tablet and my Alto Trouper. I recently purchased a second Trouper to stereo link, or pair. My problem is: the second Trouper will only play the bluetoothed music on Channel 3. I have a mixer plugged into Channels 1 and 2 and this music doesn't transfer over to the second Trouper. Surely this is possible to stream all three channels over. Am I wrong, or how do I get all three channels over to the second Trouper? Thanks.

  • Hi Kathy,

    Thanks for posting. What are you using for a mixer? Make sure both of channel inputs for a stereo connection on your mixer are connected to the Trouper's Line Inputs on the back of the speaker. 

    You can link both of your speakers together using XLR cables or Wireless Linking.

    1. Using physical XLR connection cables, you can connect as many Alto Pro Trouper loudspeakers together as you like! 

      Each Alto Pro Trouper loudspeaker contains a Link Output connection on the rear of the speaker.  This connection uses a standard XLR cable (not included) to connect to another loudspeaker and the signal sent from this connection is a summed mono signal of all three rear inputs, post-Input Volume.

    2. Wireless Linking:  First, follow the steps suggested here to Pair a single Trouper to your Bluetooth device.  This will set that first speaker as the "Master" and once the second speaker is linked, the second speaker will become the "Slave".  The Bluetooth device will send the signal to the Master loudspeaker, which will then relay the signal to the Slave loudspeaker. 

    3. To link a second Alto Pro Trouper loudspeaker wirelessly, follow the steps suggested below:
      1. Make sure no audio is playing from your Bluetooth device. If it is, pause/stop playbackand wait 5 seconds.

      2. Press and release the Stereo Link button on each loudspeaker.

      3. Both loudspeakers' LEDs will flash while "searching" for each other, and you will hear atone sequence from both loudspeakers. (This process may take up to 60 seconds.  However, the very first time you link the loudspeakers, the process may take up to 3 minutes.)

      4. When they are successfully linked, you will hear a final "confirmation tone" from both loudspeakers and the Stereo Link LEDs on both loudspeakers will light continuously.

        Note: The stereo signal will be split between the two loudspeakers: the master loudspeaker will play the left channel; the slave loudspeaker will play the right channel.

        Tip: When using two loudspeakers, we recommend labeling the master loudspeaker so you can distinguish between the two in future setups.

     Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

  • Hi, Bill. Thanks for your prompt response. Please read my post again. I have no problem pairing my Bluetooth device to the first speaker, nor linking the two speakers together wirelessly. I connected my mixer left and right outputs to channel 1 and channel 2 of the Trouper.I also tried it with a vocal mic into channel 1 and my guitar into channel 2, and I could not get the signal from the first speaker to the second speaker in either one of these situations. I did, however, get the channel 3 signal, the streamed music from my Bluetooth device, to transmit wirelessly to my second speaker. Again, I just cannot get all three channels to transmit from the first speaker to the second speaker wirelessly. It does work with an XLR cable, but I'd like to be able to use the second speaker wirelessly, if it's possible. Any help you may be able to give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • I'm having exactly the same problem. Could it be because I'm not using a stereo jack plug? I just assumed whatever was playing in the master speaker would be sent to the slave.

    I have exactly the same problem. Channel 3 transfers fine to the second speaker wirelessly but neither channel 1 or channel 2 transfers. They are not summed. Must be a design flaw which is too bad. I'll have to try using an XLR cable to connect the 2 speakers to get all the channels to transfer which is what I didn't want to have to do.
    Otherwise I like my Troupers.

  • Nothing, as long as you use an XLR cable. We both wanted all three channels to stream wirelessly via Bluetooth, and after talking to the factory, I've learned that this is not possible. Only the third channel will stream wirelessly.
