Bose Community Guidelines

(Updated 10/3)


Welcome to the Bose Community!


The mission of this online community is to provide a peer-to-peer and direct support channel for Bose product owners.


While our community is aimed at Bose customers and users, we welcome everyone with an interest in audio and sound, as long as you observe these community rules:


  1. Be respectful and constructive.
    Respect people's time and attention by asking well-thought-out questions and sharing what you've learned so far in your experimentation or prior research. Respect people as individuals by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive.  Calls for lawsuits, firing of employees or other excessively negative comments will be edited or removed.  Repeated violations could result in temporary suspension or permanent removal from the community. 


  1. Be relevant.
    Make sure your contributions are relevant to the mission of the community, to the specific discussion style and topic where you post. Please do not post duplicate messages in different areas of the community to avoid fragmenting discussion. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Solicitations are rarely relevant. If you have something you want members to join, participate in, or buy, ask us first.


  1. Keep your word.
    Don't post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party.


  1. Protect privacy - yours and that of others.
    Don't share anything about yourself or your organization that you would not want to see on a road-side billboard. Also, don't post personal information-your own or anyone else's - including contact information or any content that you receive in one-to-one communications without the author's consent.


  1. Remember, this is user-generated content.
    You'll find plenty of good advice here, but remember that your situation or configuration may vary from that of the individual sharing a solution. Some advice you find here may even be wrong. Apply the same good judgment here that you would apply to information anywhere on the Internet.


By using these forums, you agree to follow these rules as well as the full Terms of Service for the Bose Community. We thank you, and your fellow community members thank you.


The Bose Logo and Bose Employees and Usernames

You will notice that some community members have a Bose logo next to their names - this means they are Bose employees and community moderators.  Only authorized Bose moderators are allowed to use a Bose logo in their profiles.  To avoid confusion by other community members, only approved moderators are allowed to use "Bose" in their community names.

We want this to be the best community it can possibly be - so let us know what you think, or how we can help improve your experience on the Bose Community by visiting our forum feedback and requests forum.
