Can I connect multiple of these together to use as PA speakers. Or place multiple on a table for a conference room conference call?

Asked by: Gauntlet_KI
Unfortunately, you can't connect these speakers together . I would suggest to get a PA speaker since it would be a complete system.

I connect my Esquire 2 to my Windows 10 Microsoft Surface Book via Bluetooth. I use it to make Skype for Business. At random intervals the speaker/mic turn off and I have to press a volume buttons to wake it up. Does the speaker have a sleep to save power

Asked by: ACTIT
Hi, The speakers have a power saving feature that turns the device to sleep if not receiving any audio signals for 10 minutes. It may be that the Esquire 2 is not detecting the signal volume from the source since it's too low hence it goes into sleep/off mode. I would suggest to raise the volume on the source and adjust the volume on the Esquire 2 to make it louder or softer.

Which speaker is better in sound quality? Squire 2 or onyx studio 3

Asked by: juanpespinosa
These are two very different products. Both have the Harman/Kardon signature audio sound quality. Feature functionality was based on specific design application uses to accommodate our customer demands. Both portable. Yes. You are correct. Sound quality is the same. However the Onyx Studio 3 is louder.

If these thing didn't work, please try to reset the speaker by simply pressing and holding Volume + & phone button at the same time while it's on. When the unit is reset, it will power off, and turn on the unit again, and it is reset.
