I'm sorry to hear that. The issue you are experiencing certainly could be from interference. At this point I'd recommend giving a call to your regional service group by going HERE, selecting your region, then "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page. If the interference can't be eliminated, the best option would be to get a cable to hard wire the soundbar and Acoustimass.
Thank you for the post. Curiously, what have you tried for troubleshooting? Does the popping happen even when using a SoundTouch source? Are you connected using optical or HDMI-ARC? Please let us know.

I am also experiencing the same issue with the bass module where it keeps unpairing/pairing itself with the soundbar. It does this a few times and then seems to give up and the status light on the subwoofer stops lighting up.
Nothing has changed at all and it was all working fine until a week or so ago so I find it hard to believe that "interferance" is causing the issue, especially considering my virtually invisible speakers are working fine.

Sorry to hear that you are experiencing a similar issue. Interference may or may not be the culprit here. We'd have to try a few tests to be sure. Typically, wireless routers are the most common cause of interference that we hear about with these systems. To rule this out, could you temporarily disconnect your router from power and retest the system? If the connectivity issue with the bass module continues, we will know to explore other troubleshooting steps. If the system suddenly starts working better while the router is disconnected, we will know to explore steps to eliminate or reduce the interference from the router. Please let us know your results!

This is peculiar as hell. A warbling, popping sound, but only in the deeper tone sounds, "bass" of movies ... and I swear it happens almost exclusively - if not 100% of the time - when I'm watching Netflix. Never heard it with cable TV or when playing music from my iPhone connected via BT. Is it possible some audio encoding that Netflix is using is the issue ?
Next - I have one of these mesh WiFi systems. Access point in my office rooms away, but a satellite wifi unit plugged into the wall outlet in the den right next to the Bose equipment. I've moved that satellite around all over and their is no magic location that eliminates the issue, but I just played a trailer on Netflix that matches my criteria above, and the popping sound was very prevalent. Then I unplugged the satellite - replay the same exact trailer that had popped numerous times before - problem goes away. *BUT* when I then plugged the satellite back into the outlet and let it reconnect to the access point, the problem still wouldn't reoccur even on the same exact trailer that had caused the issue multiple times previously.
Do we know what frequencies to avoid in our WiFi equipment to keep them from intefering with the Bose hardware ? Is there a way to isolate ?

I'm guessing this issue is some sort of wireless interference. A poster above solved it by shutting off his bluetooth phone connection. I would try by shutting down every electronic device in the house except the Bose and start from there.
