Charging Device

Blast Box can be charged through any microUSB cable connected to a powered source. The battery will allow you to broadcast for ~3 hours on a single charge. We suggest plugging your device in while broadcasting.
 

RCA Audio Input

Blast Box will capture audio from any source through the RCA input in the back of the device.

Headphone Monitoring and Volume Knob

The headphone jack on the front of the device can be used to monitor playback and ensure that audio is being captured through the device properly. The volume knob raises and lowers the headphone monitoring volume, but does not effect the capture and broadcast volume.
 

Buttons

Red button - Press and hold to turn on and off device, press once to start and stop a broadcast.
 
Cream button - Press to see your device's battery level, press again to see your WiFi strength, press again to see the user that is paired to the device.

Pairing your device for the first time

Before attempting to pair, make sure you have downloaded the Blast Radio app and created a profile.
 
1) Press and hold the red power button to turn on device
2) The device should say "Pair Mode"
3) Open your Blast Radio app and tap the broadcast icon (top right)
