HORRIBLE RATTLING - Bose Bass Module 700 w/ Soundbar 700
Recently I purchased the Soundbar 700 along with a pair of surround speakers and the Bass Module 700. Since day 1, even at low volumes and the bass adjusted as far as it can go into the negative, the Bass Module constantly rattles. At first, I thought that perhaps it was my placement near an audio tower that houses my Xbox, DVR, some dvds, etc., and kind of dismissed it as a potentially awesome side effect of such a powerful subwoofer. However, after factory resetting my system more times than anyone should have to in the life of a premium sound system (let alone in one month) I am strongly considering returning everything and switching to ANYTHING else. Yes, I have run AdaptIQ calibration (over, and over, and over)...yes, I have moved the Bass Module away from all possible sources of interference...yes, it's against a wall...I lifted it in the air just to see if maybe my floor could somehow be the culprit...still the Bass Module.
There is a link below to a video of the ever-present rattle. I own other Bose products, and when I started shopping around for a new sound system a couple months back my satisfaction with my Bose Solo 5 really pushed me over the edge and was the reason I decided to invest in this system. When I bought the Solo 5 I was on a tighter budget, but still wanted premium sound. Boy did that thing deliver!
And so a month ago when I graduated from a $250 Solo 5 to a $2500 Soundbar 700 full surround system, I assumed I would be getting 10x the quality and performance. Instead, I have spent more time resetting and trying to fix my system than I have spent using it...oh and it's still rattling.
