Air Raid Setup Instructions
Bluetooth ready and loud as hell, Air Raid is the durable, go-anywhere speaker that doesn’t force you to make sacrifices in sound quality. Built like a tank, Air Raid was created as an unwavering companion for the adventurous soul. Scratches are worn as badges of pride and mud stains add character.
MAIN AIR RAID CONTROLS
Flip the power switch up. Wait (for up to 5 seconds) for the LED light to turn magenta and the power on tone to be played. Do not press any other buttons during this time. When Air Raid is on, the green battery LEDs will flash for 2 seconds to show the battery level. The speaker will attempt to connect to up to 2 devices in the paired device list. If no paired devices are available for connection, the speaker will enter pairing mode.
Flip the power switch down. As the speaker powers off, it will play the power down tone and the LED will turn magenta. It is recommended to disconnect all Bluetooth streaming devices before powering off.
Enter Pairing Mode
When the speaker is ON, press and hold the center button for 5 seconds. The LED will flash red and blue alternating when pairing mode is entered. When a device is successfully paired, the LED will blink red 3 times.
Connect to device

Ensure the device Bluetooth is ON. When the device is connected, the indicator LED will flash blue once every 5 seconds. Connect up to 33ft away, without interference.
Clearing the Pairing List
To clear the list of paired devices from the speaker, push and hold the + and center buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds while the power is ON. This will reset the speaker to default pairing mode the next time it is powered on. Devices will need to be paired again once this has been done even if previously paired.
Multipoint / Multiple Device Support
The speaker supports connecting to up to two audio source devices at the same time. At any one time, only one device's audio will be heard through the speaker. Thedevice will default to the last steaming device. To switch the playback device, pause/stop the playback on the currently streaming device and start the playback from the other device directly. Once the playback is established with the new device, control the Air Raid playback from your bluetooth device or the Air Raid device.

Expected Charging Time
When using the included charger (micro USB to AC adapter), a fully drained Air Raid battery will take approximately 2.5 hours to fully re-charge to 100% battery life.

Device doesn’t charge while playing music at maximum volume…
At maximum volume the amplifier can draw more power than it is possible for the micro USB connecter to provide. There may be times where the device is plugged in, but the battery is still slowly being drained. The solution is to turn down the volume until the green charging indicators begin to flash consistently.
There is choppy audio after connecting to the speaker…
When multipoint (multiple device) is enabled, the Bluetooth chip will search for a 2nd paired device while still streaming music from the currently connected device. This causes a short section of choppy audio immediately after connection. It should resolve and play normally after approximately 30 seconds. Also, the following will resolve the issue immediately:
Soft Reset: Hold Volume + and the center button for 5 seconds to reset the paired device list and then pair again. Remove Air Raid from Device: Go in to pairing settings on the device and remove or ‘forget’ Air Raid and then pair again. Device charges slowly when connected to computer… When using any charger other than the one provided, the charging time will vary. When connected to a computer, the current output is less, so charging time will increase Wired audio will not play… If wired audio will not play, make sure that no device is streaming to the speaker. Disconnect paired devices from the speaker to resolve the issue.
