Buy a speaker that has more than one built in. Most BluTooth speakers do work. I use insignia by Best buy. But I seen Lots of others being used at the pool in my gym...seems everyone wants their own music to exercise by. Me I use the gyms built in radio

Apparently it's not possible to have "true wireless pairing" with the kindle fire 7. I got a Altec Lansing - Baby Boom Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $9.99 at Best Buy and after watching a video stating this device had "true wireless pairing" I went back and got a second one. Unfortunately, the second device did not connect. But at least now I own two bluetooth speakers for under $20.00

You don’t connect the second speaker to the Fire. You connect it to the first speaker. From the Altec Lansing FAQ:

HOW DO I USE TRUE WIRELESS PAIRING?
True Wireless Pairing is used to connect two speakers together. To use True Wireless Pairing:

Power on both speakers
Pair the first speaker with your Bluetooth enabled device
On the paired speaker press the power button and minus button at the same time
Your speaker will go into True Wireless Parent Pairing Mode
On the next speaker, depending on the model either press the power button and the minus button at the same time or the Bluetooth button
This speaker will go into True Wireless Child Pairing mode
The two speakers will automatically pair together after a few seconds

Thanks, I tried that but unfortunately it didn't work. Still, with one bluetooth speaker connected the sound is so much better than the fire 7's built in speaker.

Update: Since I have two fire tablets (one black/one blue) and two bluetooth speakers (one red/one black) I got into the habit of turning off whatever device I'm not using to conserve battery life. Well, this morning I forgot to turn off my unused device(s) as usual and when I turned on my red bluetooth speaker I was amazed to hear sound also coming out of my black bluetooth speaker. At first I couldn't figure out what happened and then realized the speakers had paired.

Maybe they will have a blue offspring.

Maybe, both fire tablets are running firmware 5.6.4.0 so I suspect the updated firmware is responsible for the ease the speakers are pairing now.

I hardly ever use bluetooth, but it's hard for me to imagine why speakers would pair with each other.

if you select say a tv soundbar as the bluetooth receiver, it will then drive all of its speakers
same happens if I select my NAD 2030D hifi amp as the bluetooth receiver. that definitely then drives my speakers in stereo
i agree it seems unrealistic to expect to be able to select 2 x individual speakers and have the tablet auto-decide - ok,I will send stereo, this one can be left and that one can be right.... its much more likely to send the same mono to both. Speakers intended to work directly as a stereo pair should have the needed firmware built in so that one receives and splits the signal , and drives the other
