is there an update coming for this speaker? I hope there is an update because there is not EQ available in the google home app. Also there is not possible to set 2 speakers in stereo mode,even though you can pair 2 speakers they sound mono, why is that?

Asked by: Luis182
Hi there, there is no EQ for our Citation speakers in the Google Home app. We are always looking at ways to improve our products, and it&rsquo;s possible that it could be supported in a future software update. But we have not announced any official plans or dates. As for creating a stereo pair, you must have the same speaker model, please follow the instructions below; -Open the Google Home app -Tap on the House house -Find the speaker/room -Tap on Settings -Find the Speaker pair -You are now entering the setup page pair Tap Next. -Find your speaker under the Pair with list and tap. -Move the speaker to be Left or Right side and press Next -You can tap on Play sound to identify which speaker it is. -Find a name for your Stereo pair -It takes a minute to complete the setup. -When the configuration is done it will say Ready -Press Done This should get your the stereo pair. If you need more assistance, please submit a case request so we can assist you: https://support.jbl.com/us/en/customer-service/contact.html

Can the Citation One pair with the JBL Xtreme2?

Asked by: SaZo
Hey SaZo, thanks for asking. Our Harman Kardon Citation One can't pair with the JBL Xtreme 2. We currently have the JBL Flip 4, JBL Pulse 3, JBL Charge 3 (after firmware upgrade), JBL Charge 4&nbsp;and JBL Boombox which have Connect+ that can pair with the JBL Xtreme 2.

Very nice speaker! I'm just missing a equalizer feature to adjust settings. I know the Google Home App normally allow me to adjust treble and bass, but not on this speaker. I will also appreciate a page where i read firmware/updates to follow new features

Will two cititation one speakers grouped together provide true stereo sound as announced in product slide 7 or only play two mono sources? Research your answer carefully, you will be held accountable if I buy a pair and it turns out they dont play stereo

Asked by: Andbir
How about an &quot;official&quot; answer to the question seeing as how you've had several inquiries about how to do this?!!! Gian, nice that you say you can do it through the Google Home app but you didn't leave an explaination or instructions. Also, it seems that several customers have tried and end up with dual mono speakers. These are relatively expensive speakers, you'd think there'd be better customer service on a question like this. Sonos does stereo pairing... maybe we should all return our HK speakers and get Sonos?

I don't have a wifi network, and am having trouble connecting my smartphone to the citation one via Bluetooth. Please help, before I have to return the speaker back. Thanks in advance

Asked by: Rikdarocker
Hi, you will actually need to set up the HK Citation One to the Google Home App first before you'll be able to get the Bluetooth working. You may try to set it it up at your friend's home using their internet access and you can go back to your home with Bluetooth access even without any wifi nearby.

Will the Citation One pair with other Google assistant speakers to create a multiroom experience? (i.e. JBL Link 20)

Asked by: Chuck GP
Yes you can. The Link series and the Citation Series are both Google Assistant speakers and can be grouped to play together.

I recently purchased the Citation One and am trying to get it to sync with my Vizio 4k Smart TV Model E65-E1. If I am playing a movie or something from my phone casted to the TV I would like to hear it through the HK speaker as well as the TV.

Asked by: KennyR
If you are trying to cast to the TV using your phone, It would only have the Audio play on the TV speakers only or on the Citation ONE only if the speaker is paired through Bluetooth. If you require more assistance and info, please submit a case request and so we can assist you at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html .
