IP300 - How do I add more units to my setup?

There are two possible ways to add more units to your setup, this can be done either through Bluetooth connection or Analogue connection.
Information on both setups can be seen below and in the quick start manual supplied with your unit or downloadable here.
Bluetooth connection/streaming
To stream audio from a Bluetooth-enabled device, you will need at least one iP speaker and an iPad*/iPhone/Android*/Windows* device with basic Bluetooth connectivity. With a streaming-only Bluetooth connection, all related iP DSP functions must still be controlled directly from the iP rear panel via the rotary encoder
To stream Bluetooth audio with any Bluetooth device (iPad/iPhone/Android/Windows, etc.)
Mono operation

1. Enable Bluetooth on your remote device.
2. Switch on your iP speaker and minimize the volume.
3. Select “Pair device” from the iP speaker’s Bluetooth menu.
4. Check that your remote device is searching for a connection.
5. Once your device detects the iP speaker, select the iP speaker from your remote device’s menu (e.g., “TURBOSOUND iP300”).
6. Wait until the remote device shows an active connection, and then check the speaker’s Bluetooth menu, which should display the name of the remote device
(e.g., “HUAWEI P7-L07”).
7. Bluetooth music can now be streamed to your iP speaker. The stereo signal will automatically mix down to mono.
8. The iP speaker will display the Bluetooth indicator on the main, top-level DSP screen.

Stereo operation

1. Complete the steps above to connect the first speaker to Bluetooth audio.
2. The first connected speaker automatically becomes the MASTER speaker.
3. Switch on the second speaker, which becomes the SLAVE speaker.
4. Select “Link speaker” from the SLAVE speaker's Bluetooth menu.
5. The SLAVE speaker will display “Slave linking...”
6. Select “Link speaker” from the MASTER speaker’s Bluetooth menu.
7. The MASTER speaker will display “Master Linking...”
8. WAIT for the speakers to link.
9. Once the linking process is complete, Bluetooth audio will stream to the two speakers. The MASTER speaker will receive the left channel, and the SLAVE speaker will
receive the right channel.
10. MASTER and SLAVE connection will be indicated on the main, top-level DSP screens.
Important note: This method will only allow you to stream music from your Bluetooth enabled device, no audio such as vocals using an analogue connection will not also be transferred through Bluetooth.
Important note: Only one Slave can be connected to a master

Analogue connection
Despite their sophistication, iP speakers offer straightforward analogue connectivity, and you can easily arrange the iP system to allow simple control of levels from other devices, such as mixers. You can also daisy-chain multiple iP speakers using only the analogue connections, and then directly control the overall level from your
mixer’s master fader.

For example, you have four iP speakers and a mixer with simple left-right stereo outputs. For typical operation, set the DSP volume and input gain settings on all speakers to a flat “0 dB” setting.

Connect the mixer’s left and right stereo outputs to the first two speakers’ analogue INPUT A connections (the left and right mixer
outputs will go to separate speakers).

Then, run cables from the OUTPUT analogue connections to the remaining two speakers.

In a similar way, subwoofers can also be linked to the analogue OUTPUT.
