Adjust volume of internal speaker

The Wii Remote has a built-in speaker that is used at certain points while using the Wii. The following information describes how to adjust the volume of the Wii Remote's speaker.


  • Not all games use the built-in speaker.
  • Turning the speaker volume down can extend battery life of the Wii Remote.
  • This procedure must be performed on all Wii Remotes you wish to adjust the volume of.

    1. Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.


    2. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Menu.


    3. Move the cursor over the "-" and "+" buttons to increase or decrease the volume levels. You will hear a sound from the speaker each time you adjust the setting. The sound approximates what the volume level would be at that setting.
