There always comes a time when travelers are unsure whether some items and gadgets they own can be carried along with them when traveling by air. One of such items can be speakers. Can you go along with any speaker you own when traveling by air? Well, read along, and let’s delve into this.
How to Handle Airport Security with Bluetooth devices?
The TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has indicated specific regulations for screening electronics. They have recommended that you store the electronics so that the authorities can easily access them when screening.
Additionally, you can buy a TSA-compliant lock for bags that contains wireless devices and accessories to deter theft. And if you are transporting them in a carry-on bag, they should be large enough for separate screening.
I would also recommend you to join the TSA-precheck program. It is ideal for regular travelers, and you won’t need to unpack your devices when going through airport screening. But Lithium batteries are bound by special regulations, and you need to remove them from your checked luggage and store them in the carry-on bag.
What is TSA PreCheck?

Popular devices like laptops, cameras, and other electronic devices also contain rechargeable lithium batteries, so bring them in your carry-on. It’s always a hassle to be pulled aside, so don’t give the security reasons for searching your checked-in bag.
TSA advises travelers to prepare for TSA screenings to avoid issues and delays when getting their PEDs through checkpoints. Once you follow the rules, TSA won’t confiscate your Bluetooth devices.
Are Speakers Allowed On Airplanes?
Yes, speakers are allowed on airplanes. Speakers are not on the restricted list of items when it comes to air travel. When traveling with speakers on planes, the only thing that matters is ensuring that your speakers’ size and weight meet the specifications of the airline you are traveling with.
According to the United States’ Transport Security and Administration (TSA), there is no problem with carrying your speakers along when traveling on an airplane. Depending on their components, speakers can either be part of your hand luggage or your checked luggage.
Speakers that are handy and portable are allowed on airplanes. These speakers can be brought on board as part of your hand luggage and not added to your check-in luggage. You can take them on the flight with you, but you are not allowed to use them while you are on board.
Can I pack a Bluetooth speaker in checked baggage?
As long as the batteries are installed, which means that the terminals are not exposed, you can pack the device in checked luggage. Spare batteries are not allowed in checked baggage, as explained in the battery section above.
If you are packing your speaker in checked baggage, be prepared for the risk of unfaithful servants. Bluetooth devices packed in checked baggage are often gone missing. So I would recommend bringing your devices in your carry-on, as long as you have room for it.
Are Subwoofers Allowed On a Plane?
Yes, subwoofers are allowed on a plane. As long as your subwoofer is within the size and weight allowance for your airline, you should have no problems bringing it along with you. Depending on the size of the subwoofer, it can fit as either hand luggage or check-in luggage.
Subwoofers are basically speakers. For subwoofers to fall underhand luggage, they will need to be small enough to fit under the seat in front of you or in the overhead bin. This means the dimension of your luggage has to be according to the specifications of the cabin limits and the weight of the plane you are traveling on.
If not, you would have to check them in as checked luggage. Subwoofers do not contain lithium batteries, so they are allowed into the cargo hold of planes. However, wiring and magnets inside your subwoofers may lead the TSA to open your subwoofers for closer inspection.
Due to the risk of damage that can occur when subwoofers are added to checked luggage, I would suggest you pack your subwoofers well and mark them as fragile.
Most airlines allow you to bring and use Bluetooth devices on the plane. But be aware that there are different rules on when you are allowed to use them. In some airlines, you can use them during the whole flight, and in some, you cannot use them during taxi, take-off, or landing. A few are not allowing Bluetooth devices at all.
You are, in most cases, allowed to pack Bluetooth devices (also those with Lithium batteries) in both carry-on and checked baggage. But remember that there is a high risk of someone stealing your device if packed in checked baggage.
Spare batteries are only allowed in the carry-on, and you should pack them carefully to prevent short-circuiting.
If you want to connect your device to a phone, tablet, or laptop, remember to enable flight mode (airplane mode) and then turn Bluetooth back on.
On international travels, most airlines have their own entertainment system. To connect your Bluetooth headphones to these systems, you need either; a 2-pin adapter for a wired connection or a Bluetooth adapter to connect wirelessly.
