How to: pair the audioCube |Modular|:
Introducing the audioCube |Modular|:
Regular speakers have their disadvantages...
They are faced in a predetermined direction and most of the times the sound is in just one side of the room, while leaving other parts unattended.
We designed audioCube |Modular| to create a better surround sound environment. Our team has dedicated countless hours to make the greatest omnidirectional speaker with infinite pairing system in the world.
It is available in three different versions:
- audioCube Portable Modular |Bass|
- audioCube Portable Modular |Tweeter|
- audioCube Portable |Modular| - White/Grey and Wood
Why are we better than everyone else?
It is simple; audioCube |Modular| has multiple speakers facing different directions and therefore creating a unique sound experience. Furthermore, its infinite pairing system allows it to replicate sound into multiple devices; creating an ABSOLUTE and WIRELESS sound experience. Let’s dive into the features:
1. Easy and infinite pairing
This is where the cool stuff comes in. Not only you can use audioCube |Modular| as a standalone, but you can create a surround sound system by pairing unlimited audioCubes with eachother, making the best sound system for any occasion.
In order to create your own surround sound system, you can pair other audioCubes with the 'Host'. The amount of audioCubes that can be easily paired together is infinite (we apologize in advance to your neighbors).
No app or internet connection needed.
Simply press the pairing button on the audioCubes that you want to pair with the 'Host' for 5 seconds to turn them into 'Guest', this means the music that is played by the 'Host' will be synchronized with the music played by the 'Guest'. Scroll down and check the "how it works" section for more info.
By having multiple audioCube |Modular| paired together you can create the ultimate sound experience. Think about it, you are not bound to cords. Wait, what? Yes, you read it right; no cords due to its internal battery charge it and go. Have a big barbecue? Take multiple devices and replicate the sound coming from both sides. Make it absolutely delightful for you and your guests. Moved the party inside the house? No problem, take the (cordless) speakers and place them strategically to keep the party going.
3. Multi-level sound experience
We would like to provide you an add-on onto your pledge. If you want to add the |Bass| and |Tweeter| module with your order, is it possible.
Add an extra amount onto your pledge and receive these great add-ons:
- $79,- audioCube Portable Modular |Bass| or
- $99,- audioCube Portable Modular |Tweeter|
Each audioCube |Modular| provides a 360° sound experience with 4 high-fidelity speakers and one woofer that creates an incredible bass. In order to create even more bass or treble, the 'Host' audioCube |Modular| can also be connected with other allocacoc audio modules such as the audioCube Modular |Bass| and audioCube Modular |Tweeter| to create a multi-level sound effect.
These two modules can only be used as a Guest connected to the Host, it cannot work independently. As the Guest, the button will light up, to indicate it is the Guest. If the battery is less than 20% there will be a second red light flashing.
You can use the Tweeter Module to replace the two sides of the audioCube speaker area.
The internal battery in the audioCube |Modular| lasts for at least 12 hours. It is rechargeable with an IEC cable with no external adapter required, which makes it easy to take it with you wherever you go.
The audioCube |Modular| can be paired to the phone by two options: with included AUX cable or through Bluetooth. Let's start playing your own music!
1. On/OFF Button
2. Play: Click to pause or play
3. Volume -: Click to decrease volume: hold to play last song.
4. Volume +: Click to increase volume; hold to play next song.
5. Pairing button: Hold to start pairing.
6. Internal battery: The audioCube |Portable| offers extra mobility, enabling you to use the audioCube without a power outlet. Its internal batteries will give you an autonomy of up to 12 hours!
7. Audio jack: The audioCube uses a widely used audio input port, so besides bluetooth it is also possible to connect your mobile with a cable.
8. IEC connector. At the back an IEC connector is provided, making it easy to attach a standard IEC cable you probably have laying around. And thanks to its integrated powercircuit, no external adapter is required.
Auto power-off: The audioCube turns off after 30 minutes of inactivity.
The audioCube |Modular| comes with two Modes: Host mode and Guest mode.
Host mode: Connect to phones, computers and other devices to play music.
Guest mode: When turned on, it will automatically connect to the Host that controls the music.
How to distinguish between modes: When the audioCubes are turned on, the Host’ LED indicator (in the Power button) is always on. The Guests’ LED indicator will blink once every 3 seconds.
Switch between Host and Guest modes: Press and hold the pairing button for 5secs to switch the audioCube from Host to Guest mode, and vice versa.
NOTE: The audioCube Modular |Bass| and the audioCube Modular |Tweeter| can only be Guest mode.

We, from allocacoc created audioCube |Modular| because we felt annoyed about the current surround systems in the market. Having to buy a whole set that is fix to a specific location made us very frustrated and decided that it was the time to make something unique to share to the world. It has been an incredible journey, ups and downs but finally we came up with a distinctive solution, audioCube |Modular|.
It is fascinating how one common frustration led to an idea that we get to materialize with your support. If you feel this project relates to you, please share and support it. Enjoy 360 degrees of pure sound experience, flexible, adaptable AND truly surround system.

Risks and challenges
Having gained experience in the design and manufacturing of innovative products, we are confident that we will be able to fulfill the project within the specified time frame.
Our experience from previous projects is that the largest challenge is to meet the demand, which is why a Kickstarter project is perfect: as preorders are placed we will have enough time to foresee the demand and adapt to it.
