Bose Bass Module Rattling Fix
I've recently purchased the Soundbar 700, Bass Module 700, and Surround Speakers. I was hit by one of the prominent issues in this community - my Bass Module 700 was rattling a fair bit. The sound in general was awesome and I was happy with everything but the rattling of Bass Module 700.
After playing around with things and reading the community forums, I've found a fix for my issue. Here it is in case it helps someone:
Bass Module rattling only when watching video via TV, Apple TV, or DVR via HDMI or Optical
Bass Module working perfectly when playing music
If you're using a mac, hit option and click on your wifi icon in the menu bar. Then 'Open Wireless Diagnostics'. Then 'Window' in the menu bar and 'Scan'.
Once the scan is done, on the left side of the window write down the values against 'Best 2.4Ghz' and 'Best 5 Ghz' - these are the channels you need to set your bands on in the router.
I've also set my bands to 20Hz - which seems to work better for reduction of interference.
The reason this needs to be done is because the Bose products work using the same WiFi spectrum. And if there are a lot of WiFi signals in your area, there'll be a fair bit of overlap. Adjusting signals helps with isolating your own WiFi signal and therefore clears the congestion.
This has worked for me and everything is working fine. My entire setup is WiFi - no lan cable connected to Soundbar 700.
Hope this heps.
