The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Sound bar 300 Acousticmass is not very loud

I have a sound bar and have tried to connect it to my acousticmass but the mass doesn’t seem very loud like when I was shown it in the shop?

Re: Sound bar 300 Acousticmass is not very loud

This probably comes down to the fact that most shops don't use the actuall firmware version. It has been discussed in the past already that most users miss bass, as AdaptiQ is kinda cutting its loudness to half. Back with V14 of the firmware there was a bug so AdaptiQ was not correcty being applied to the AM300, wich got resolved in a later build, but most people weren't happy about it. But to be honest a overly boomy base is not what the AM300 is aimed to achieve and is fully unnatural. Though i have to admit as the hardware can handle higher levels of base easily ,bose should adjust their base scale to let's say +2 to have the level like +2 in its current state more in the default position to allow more head room.

 

To elaborate ,the current scale is -4 to +4 - 0 being default. Lets say -4  -3  -2  -1  0  1  |_|  3  4  is "okay-ish" this +2 should more be like the 0 position and give it a little more room
