Can ONN TV Connect To A Bluetooth Speaker?

Television surround sound can provide a one-of-kind, luxury, immersive entertainment viewing experience in the comfort of your home. Bluetooth speakers offer more flexibility than wired speakers, as they can be moved anywhere within range of the television. But not all Bluetooth speakers are compatible with all television sets.

Onn TVs currently do not support Bluetooth connectivity for all devices. At the moment, you can only pair them with Roku brand devices. However, there’s a possibility that this feature might be added in the future!

ONN Roku TV users are enjoying some of the latest and greatest home entertainment technology on offer – now they just need enhanced sound! Can ONN TV connect to a Bluetooth speaker?

How To Pair Non-ONN Bluetooth Speakers on ONN TV?

If you don’t wish to purchase ONN-brand wireless speakers, there is still a method to connect regular Bluetooth speakers to an ONN TV, even without the TV having a built-in Bluetooth capability.

There are three noted methods, which we explore below.

Using a Bluetooth Transmitter

There are a variety of Bluetooth transmitters to choose from, including the TaoTronics Bluetooth transmitter, which is highly rated and available for only $19.99. These devices stream the audio from your TV to your speaker.

Connecting the ONN TV to Bluetooth speakers using a Bluetooth transmitter is simple.

  1. Charge the transmitter – Make sure the Bluetooth transmitter is fully charged before pairing.
  2. Connect the transmitter to the ONN TV’s 3.55mm jack on the back of the TV (also known as the headphone jack or audio jack).
  3. Ensure your Bluetooth speaker is in the correct mode for pairing. This will vary depending on your speaker model. Make sure it’s fully charged and consult your specific device’s instructions for entering pairing mode so that it recognizes the transmitter.
  4. Pair the speaker with the transmitter by following those devices’ specific instructions.

Using a Bluetooth Audio Adapter

Bluetooth audio adapters operate similarly to transmitters when used in this scenario. Just make sure you have one that supports both input and output before purchasing.

Then, the steps are similar to the above:

  1. Charge the adapter.
  2. Connect the adapter to the ONN TV’s 3.55 audio jack.
  3. Ensure your Bluetooth speaker is in the correct mode for pairing.
  4. Pair the speaker with the adapter using both devices’ specific instructions.

Using a TV Soundbar

This method will require you to purchase a TV Soundbar, such as the Roku Soundbar as well as a connection cable.

  1. Connect the Soundbar to your ONN TV using a connection cable. You will need an audio cable such as HDMI ARC, optical cable, or RCA cable; the type of cable may depend on the type of soundbar you selected.
  2. Pair the Bluetooth Speaker with the Soundbar. Follow the devices’ specific instructions. TV audio will then be routed through the soundbar to the speaker.

This method is more complicated, and the hardware more expensive, than the others listed here, but it is effective.

Addressing And Troubleshooting Common Bluetooth Connection Issues

Common connection issues with ONN TV’s and wireless or Bluetooth speakers can include challenges pairing the devices, or poor audio quality, including sound cutting out, mismatched lip sync, and audio delay.

Here are some recommendations to ensure quality connection performance of these devices:

  • Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on all devices.
  • Check your Wi-Fi connection on all devices.
  • Restart your Wi-Fi router.
  • Restart the devices.
  • Move the devices closer together – remember, 30 feet is the max range for most.
  • Eliminate interference – turn off any other Bluetooth-enabled devices in your house to eliminate distractions in the signal.
  • Repeat the pairing process.

How To Check If My Onn TV Model Supports Bluetooth?

Did you know that you can easily check if your Onn TV supports Bluetooth? There are a couple of simple ways to find out.

Let me show you how!

Check For Bluetooth Symbol on Remote – You should search for the Bluetooth symbol (a capital “B” letter with vertical lines) on your Onn TV remote. If it’s there, this indicates that your TV has Bluetooth support.

Find Your TV’s Model Number – You can find the model number on the back or side of your Onn TV and make a note of it.

Visit – Open in your web browser and input your TV’s model number into the search bar.

Select Your ONN TV Model – Select your ONN TV model from the list.

Check Features or Connectivity – Open the product page, then go to ‘Features‘ or ‘Connectivity‘ section and check if Bluetooth is in the list.

Bluetooth Support – If you find ‘Bluetooth’ or ‘Bluetooth connectivity’ in the list, your TV is compatible and can pair with other bluetooth devices.

TV Has No Bluetooth Support – If you don’t find “Bluetooth” in the list, you ONN TV doesn’t support bluetooth.

Use Bluetooth Transmitters/Receivers (Optional) – If you want to add bluetooth to your non-bluetooth ONN TVs, you can connect external transmitters or receivers in the TV audio input.

Final Thoughts

ONN TV owners can access premium quality surround sound thanks to advancements in wireless Bluetooth speaker technology.

Although most ONN TVs do not have built-in Bluetooth capabilities, ONN TV’s can connect to ONN-brand wireless speakers, which offer premium sound quality and easy-to-use options at an affordable price.

Head to to peruse ONN brand television sets and accessories, including the wireless speakers.

Users can also use additional hardware in order to pair non-ONN brand Bluetooth speakers with the ONN TV. Bluetooth transmitters and adapters can be attached to the ONN TV via the 3.5mm audio jack, or a Soundbar can be connected via an audio cable such as HDMI. Then, by pairing the transmitter to Bluetooth speakers, standard non-ONN brand speakers can be used.
