Could you please be more clear with what is going to come and when? From your response, it appears that same v16 is going to get pushed again which Bose stoppped pushing because of some known issues. Are users left with work-arounds which members of this forum discovered?
Is App pushing version 16 now?
I have very poor experience with how this issue is managed by Bose so far.

Although this is the case, we also found that in general some users have an appetite for more low frequencies. This is something the team is taking seriously and may drive future iterations.
And may I ask what about the users, like myself, who do not have this appetite??

Lena, Bose have measured the frequancy response of the ST300 in peoples homes on V14 and V16 and they are both the same, the sound profile for both updates is exactly the same, I don't want to sound rude to people about this but i think its placebo, V15 DID change the sound but the other 2 are identical. I have tested all 3 firmwares extensively.
From my perspective V15 has the most balanced sound. On V14/V16 there is too much Sub-bass relative to the rest of the sound. Turning the bass down loses the mid-bass turning it up makes it too rumbly.
For me V15 is perfect although because they reigned the rumbly bass down a little bit i think the bass heads arn't happy, personally I feel the solution is for Bose to use V15 as this definately has the most balanced sound but give more options for bass increase in the app maybe +10 or something instead of at the moment it is only +4 bass on the bar itself.
I am frustrated, people that think boomy overblown bass is good have won and Bose have changed the sound back. What they should have done is just give more options for increasing it.
Please Bose give us more control over the bass, maybe a "sub bass" and a "bass" setting in the app if a full equalizer is too much.

This issue of which firmware version suits the individual is so simple to solve.
Bose, you need to put a service page in the app, to show firmware versions so we can have a choice of which to install.
I for one would go back to 14xxx

A really useful „feature“ would be s slider in the app to enable/disable Adaptiq settings. So you can compare which sounds better for you without having to do a factory reset everytime (which really sucks).
Lena, you right!
It will be useful
And another thing is to allow upper versions of the App work with the old versions of the firmware (without auto update). Even if not all of the modern features will work.

New to community, just had some ?s Just got the soundtouch 300 about month ago then acoustiass 300 about a week ago... I must say not what i heard in store or at other homes(about a year ago) ... Still I like it, but would really like to get what I though i was paying for.. .Just found out about firmware problem when I called into Bose customer service .. You said poeple have been testing v16 any time frame on its release or best guess .... Also can you add a 2nd AM300(seen two post that contradicted each other )... plus the VIs as rear ..
