How to Connect a Bluetooth Speaker to an Epson Projector?


Having an Epson projector frees you up to so many options when it comes to teaching, entertaining, and gaming!

However, when it comes to sound, your Epson projector may not deliver the volume or quality that you need, so you may want to connect it to a speaker.

And, of course, what better way to further increase your setup options with Bluetooth speakers or headphones that you don’t even have to plug into the projector!

But to experience the fully disconnected lifestyle, you have to ask: how do I connect a Bluetooth speaker to an Epson projector?

We’ve found that if your Epson projector is Bluetooth compatible, you just have to turn on its Bluetooth option in the settings then pair it with your speakers. 

But if your Epson projector isn’t Bluetooth compatible, you’ll have to connect it through a laptop, a TV, audio cables, or a Bluetooth USB adapter.

Are All Epson Projectors Bluetooth Compatible?

Unfortunately, not all Epson projectors have Bluetooth as a built-in feature .

Epson does have a line of Bluetooth projectors, but these are made specifically for people who value the convenience of a wireless experience. 

Outside of the special Bluetooth projectors, most Epson projectors will need to be connected to external speakers, earphones, or headphones through other methods—such as those listed below.

Your Epson projector should now be connected to your Bluetooth audio device! And don’t worry, if your projector has speakers, they will be automatically disabled.

Your projector will also remember your audio device, so you don’t have to pair it every time. However, if you want to connect to a different audio device, you will have to repeat the steps listed above.

NOTE: this only works if your Bluetooth audio devices are A2DP compliant and if your country or region supports Bluetooth devices. Audio might also be slightly delayed when using Bluetooth connections.
