Pro Media 2.1 bluetooth issue

Recommended Posts

One of my neighbors in my apartment has connected to my speakers and won't disconnect. I've gone around to all of them and none of them claim to be doing it. I cannot use my speakers at all because the speakers prioritize bluetooth over the audio jack connected to my computer. Is there any way to boot them off. I'm getting infuriated by this problem and I want it to end. I paid good money for speakers that I can no longer use. I'm about ready to dump them in the trash because of their shortcomings in security. Why did they make a speaker that has no security whatsoever....

I have a similar issue; I don't ever want my speakers using Bluetooth, but I haven't figured out a way to disable the Bluetooth radio.

 

Is there any sort of non-BT pre-amp I can purchase? Is there a way to bypass the pre-amp and use my own volume control?

Klipsch apparently refuses to address this issue and keeps selling this crappy Bluetooth. I didn't realize it was unsecure when I ordered it directly from them, and now they won't pay shipping on a return.

 

So given that their return policy apparently sucks anyway, I went ahead and voided the warranty by destroying the BT antenna on the control board. Maximum range is now about 15 feet.

 

I'd rather be able to just shut it off, but I don't know how the controller switches the signal, so I'm not willing to just disable the BT chip entirely in case everything stops working.

And I thought that I was the only one with this problem ......!!

It is really annoying that I cannot control the neighbor's "Bluetooth hijacking", there must be a solution to this issue, because when the speakers work, they are great ! 

BUT THE INABILITY TO CONTROL THE "BLUETOOTH HIJACKING" MAKES THIS GREAT PRODUCT A USELESS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

I am having the same problem, previously I used he other the same model but without blue tooth and it didn't give me any problem but now that I upgrade to this blue tooth version I got hijacked by some unknown neighbour

So what do I do now beside throwing the system away

I definitely would share this with my friends before they choose which audio system to buy

This is Oct. 2020 and I'm still having to unplug my speakers to allow the neighbors take over the bluetooth antenna that how can they overpower my speakers as if the bluetooth allowance is liking their speakers play over mine so f.... mine and let them have it. Still yet, the speakers aren't worth it any more to me. Anyone know of NON BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS ON THE MARKET EQUAL TO THESE OR GREATER THAT AGAIN ISN'T BLUETOOTH-BASED?

I think i'm having this issue with my Heritage Groove . 

everytime someone walks by the house, like walking a dog, my speaker bluetooth connection drops. 

It starts its blue blinking light thing.

It takes at least 10 minutes for it to figure out that it can sync with my phone again.

wow how unreliable.

Wondering if anyone else was able to disable the Bluetooth antenna and if so do you have pics?  I just can't believe Klipsch has such a major design flaw and they are not fixing it.

I don't think they can fix it unless they replace it free of charge. I ended up taking apart the the volume control box under the right speaker and ripping off the chip for the antenna since I don't use the bluetooth.
