Adding rear speakers

I'm hoping a member can direct me to a thread if the topic has been addressed already. I bought a JBL charge 4 in hopes of adding removable rear speakers to my gtl, but I can't get output from the fronts once I select a bluetooth option and turning the loudspeaker option to on disconnects the 'wireless option' ? is there an easy workaround to get audio from my wireless device and the bikes speakers together?. tia

The onboard Alpine radio unit lets you choose between speakers or Bluetooth, but not both.

You could get an audio bridge that connects to the speaker wires and run that output through an aftermarket Bluetooth transmitter. Other owners have done something similar since the factory Bluetooth system kinda sucks.

A site search on Bluetooth and Speaker gives several useful threads, including this one and this one.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full.
All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
