Connect multiple speakermics

  1. Connect one speakermic to a power outlet using the power adapter.
  2. On one speakermic, insert the network cable into the Next network port.
  3. On a second speakermic, insert the other end of the cable into the Previous network port. (Up to 5 speakermics can be connected this way.)
    For the best audio quality, we recommend speakermics are less than 4.9 feet (1.5 m) away from each meeting participant and less than 6.5 feet (2 m) from each additional speakermic.
  4. On one of the speakermics, insert the USB cable into the micro-USB port and connect it to the Chromebox.
  5. Wait for the lights on each speakermic to turn white.
  6. In Hangouts Meet, make sure Hangouts Meet speakermic is selected.
