I was just hoping someone could give me advice on the optimal bass and treble settings for my speaker. I am a bit unclear of the + and the - Options...I could just play with them but I would like to get the best possible sound.
Thanks for reaching out via the Bose Community. Welcome to the site.
The + means to increase the bass/treble level, and - means to decrease the bass/treble level. I would recommend you increase/decrease, listen to the change in tone, then set the levels based on your personal preference.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, do feel free to get back in touch.

PixieDust this is one of the most important topics however you will find pretty much everyone slient on the topic. No one wants to reveal their "secret" settings for the best sound - probablt because it is an individual taste. I will however break protocol and give you my settings after tweaking them for the past 2 months. I tell myself "one more adjustment and it will sound perfect" - really it depends on the music but I have what I call a balanced setting...
Center Channel - 70
Bass - 50
Trebel - 20
Rear Speakers - 100
Bass Module - 70
I love bass but deep rich bass, some will crank up the BASS to 100 on the sound bar and bass module and that is good for parties but perhaps not so much for really appreciating the music. You can go as low as 30 for the center channel which will make the rear speakers sound more noticeable. I would not take the center channel below 30 otherwise vocals & other instruments sound strange.
Let me know,
