My sb 16 works for a about 20-30 mins and then the speakers  will make a loud “pop” and the soundbar goes to standby mode. I have noticed the back gets very hot. It will not turn on until after a long period of rest and then the same problem cycles again.

How do I know that the speaker is charging?

Asked by: Bentoo
The Esquire 2 has 5 indicator lights on the left side that would indicate show all 5 lights steady at 100% and 1 blinking light at less than 20%. It's similar to how you would interpret a battery level indicator. 1 blinking light - <20%, >0% 1 steady light - around 20% 1 steady light + 1 blinking light <40%, >20% 2 steady lights - around 40% 2 steady lights + 1 blinking light <60%, >40% 3 steady lights - around 60% 3 steady lights + 1 blinking light <80%, >60% 4 steady lights - around 80% 4 steady lights + 1 blinking light <100%, >80% 5 steady lights - around 100%
