Setting up your Exos-9 couldn’t be easier. First, install the battery pack.

There is a small latch on the bottom of the unit that keeps the battery in place. When installing the battery, insert the tabs on the left first, and push the battery in until the latch clicks. To remove the battery, pull the catch on the latch outward.


Connect the power cord to the back of the Exos-9 and power on using the switch. The screen will illuminate. Now you’re ready to listen!

The Exos-9 is always available to pair – in other words, there is no need for “pairing mode.” Just turn it on and search for it on your smartphone or another Bluetooth-capable device, or simply tap your phone to the NFC touch-point on top of the speaker.

The Exos-9 will remember the last 8 devices paired, and will automatically connect when in range and powered on.


To wirelessly pair two speakers together to listen to your favorite tunes in mirror or stereo mode, simply press the LINK button on one Exos-9 and then press the LINK button on another Exos-9.

  • Once the two speakers are paired, press the LINK button to cycle through the channel modes. Choose from (L)(R), (L), or (R).
  • Control the audio through the master speaker (the one without the SATELLITE icon lit up) by using the onboard controls or the music source.
  • For optimum pairing, units should be placed within 20 feet of each other with no objects blocking the signal between them. Avoid placing either unit near a router or any device that may cause interference.



Make sure Bluetooth is active on your connecting device. Search for nearby Bluetooth devices. The speaker will appear as “Aiwa Exos-9”, simply select to connect.

If your device supports NFC pairing, touch it to the NFC icon in the circle on the top of the device, just to the right of the touch screen.


Almost anything headphones can plug into can play through the Exos-9. MP3 players, CD players, radios, computers, televisions, etc. can be connected with the included 3.5mm audio cable.

  • The Exos-9 will automatically switch to auxiliary input when you connect a device.
  • The screen will show “AUX IN” when this input is active. If it doesn’t switch to the correct input automatically, hold the play/pause button on the speaker to switch inputs manually.


The Exos-9 has a 5-band graphic equalizer so you can adjust the sound to your personal taste or room acoustics.

To adjust the equalizer, use the left and right arrows to select an EQ band. The currently selected band will blink. Press the up arrow to increase the gain on a given band, press the down arrow to decrease it.

To select the EQ presets, Battery Save Mode, or to turn the EQ off, keep pressing the right arrow to make a selection.


  • There are two USB ports on the Exos-9. The port labeled “USB Charge” can be used to charge your mobile device.
  • The Exos-9 firmware can be updated using the micro-USB port labeled “Software Update.” Check the Aiwa website (www.aiwa.us.com) for instructions and new firmware versions.


To lock the Bluetooth connection to a single device, hold down the RIGHT and LINK buttons. The speaker will remain connected until manually released or until the unit sleeps due to inactivity.


The Exos-9 will go anywhere you want great sound, but if you’re looking for a more permanent spot to place the speaker, there are a couple things to keep in mind. Speakers with a deep bass extension like the Exos-9 are affected by how close they are to the wall. Bass can be boosted if the back of the speaker is within a

few feet of the wall, but if it’s too close to the wall the bass may be dulled. If you would like to improve bass response, try moving the speaker, or adjust the bass using the equalizer.


The Exos-9 battery lasts for approximately 10 hours playing at moderate volume. Battery life varies with volume and EQ settings. As with all speakers, battery life gets much shorter at very high volumes.

To get more play time at very high volumes, use the Battery Save Mode EQ setting. It targets and reduces audio frequencies that use the most power, and can increase battery life by up to 100%.

The display screen and touchpad are designed to turn off after 15 seconds of activity to preserve battery life. Press any button or swipe your fingers across the touch pad to reactivate.


  • The battery will automatically charge as needed when the speaker is connected to AC power using the included power cord. The cord is a standard PC cord and easily replaceable.
  • The battery level is shown on the display screen. You may continue to use the speaker on AC power while the battery is charging. You can swap a depleted battery with a spare or extended life battery.
  • After 15 minutes of inactivity, the speaker will enter sleep mode to save power. While in sleep mode, it will not connect via Bluetooth or play audio. Connect via NFC or press one of the touch buttons on top of the speaker to wake it from sleep mode.
