Added to my soundtouch 300 setup to complete the set. Living room is small, bose soundbar on the ydp 163, ust projector via hdmi. Good bass, once you’ve tinkered with the settings. Need to have bass set up to about 1 light less than the maximum on the soundtouch 300 (if you’ve ever changed the bass it’s via the remote, hold button called bass, volume up and the lights go lighting up from left to right). The module site to the right of the sofa, but the bass is felt (and heard) everywhere in the room. Got it for £240 new on a good deal, so definitely value for money for me. Can’t buy the module 700 as that would be too much for the small sized living room i have.
Excellent bass, well made quality product, easy set up, very reasonable price compared to the bigger 700. Placed in a longe 8m x 4m fills the room will thumping bass. You can control the amount of bass via the app i have it set to 80 and that is more than enough to wake up the neighbourhood. Full disclosure i am a bit of a bose hoar, there are other products that will give you the same or better performance at a cheaper price.
Brilliant little box thinking of getting a second as i believe you can have two hooked up to soundbar wirelessly of coursei live in a block of flats and am scared of pumping up the volume lest i upset my neighbors ( all four all around)the bass module rally shines with what it has to play with so to speak it’s down to how the sound is recorded really music you actually notice the difference in bassuse the bose music app when in doubt as to whether the bass module is making a difference turn the bass module off and i guarantee you’ll notice a difference at low volumesall in all an absolute beast recommended.
This item only work’s with the bose 500 and 700 soundbar as far as i know. This definitely adds bass to the 500 soundbar, ridiculous amounts of bass. When you connect the app you can control the level of bass, no remote is supplied with this item although the general volume is controlled with the soundbar remote. As i said in my soundbar review don’t try to save money on your tv audio, why have a 4k tv with average/poor sound.
Paired with a soundbar 700 and surrounds. Getting it setup was extremely easy, it took me ~20mins (including the essential calibration) and shouldn’t be an issue to anyone but the most inexperienced of tech users. I love the fact it connects to all my other bose speakers via wireless, no cables beyond power are required. I have the bass 500 situated on a hard wood floor in the corner of my living room – the extra punch it adds to the sound bar is extremely impressive, you can literally feel it in your stomach at 30% (mine is ordinarily set to 60%). Whether you listen to music, watch movies or both this is a required upgrade that you should probably purchase at the same time as the sound bar.
Wish i had bought this earlier in my life, it’s awsome .
As you would expect from bose the sound is outstanding and complements and enhances the bose sound bar.
Product adds sufficiently to base levels. A vast improvement to tv speakers but it’ll never damage your internal organs. Supplied bose instructions are poor. I’ve hated setting up the soundbar, rear speakers and the base unit. Once everything was set up it is good. Better than the speakers on my lg tv.
A must have for the 500 sound bar if you want that extra bass.
Brilliant system, integrates with sound bar and remote very well. I use it in conjunction with my television.
Super easy to pairing wit my sound bar. I have 3 year old bose 300 sound bar. I was waiting to buy a subwoofer. Finally i gotwonderful product.
