About the Bose Bass Module 500

Big bass with a small footprint

The Bose Soundbar 500 is a great start toward better TV audio, but if you want even more rumble, just add the Bose Bass Module 500. Much like the companion sound bar, its small size belies the impact it will make on your living room audio system. You might not expect such booming bass to come from a compact, 10-inch cube.

Big bass with a small footprint

The Bose Soundbar 500 is a great start toward better TV audio, but if you want even more rumble, just add the Bose Bass Module 500. Much like the companion sound bar, its small size belies the impact it will make on your living room audio system. You might not expect such booming bass to come from a compact, 10-inch cube.

And if you run Bose's ADAPTiQ® room calibration system, the sound will be adjusted to suit the unique characteristics of your room. That way you get deep bass that's well-balanced, not overwhelming.

Surround yourself

Want an even more immersive experience? Add a pair of wireless Bose Surround Speakers. These compact speakers work seamlessly with this system to deliver complete wraparound sound effects.

Love my Bose 500 Sub

Crutchfield customer from Valatie, NY on 7/21/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I wanted a sub to add low end complement my Bose 500 Soundbar. This fits quite nicely, its not big, but don't let the size fool you. It offers house shaking bass. I have only had the volume at about 40% my house feels like I'm in a club. The bass is tight, no distortion, adds punch to both music and movies.

Pros:

Cons: when playing music on the soundbar it takes about 2 seconds for the sub to come on when the bass line hits, IF the sub was in sleep mode

Bass clarity lacking. Muddy and to much boom. If you turn down frequency then you can not hear enough bass response.

Pros:

Cons:

Overpriced and under performs

Ben from Essex, VT on 11/8/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was extremely disappointed with the performance of this subwoofer. With the level turned up all the way I could barely notice any added bass, even when sitting right next to it. It also looks a feels very cheap, it is 100% plastic and has the feel and appearance a subwoofer costing a fraction of this price. The matching sound bar paired with this subwoofer leads to a very disappointing performance, there are many better options available for the combined price tag - or less. Sending both back for refunds.

Pros: Small size

Cons: Hardly adds any bass, extremely overpriced

Product Research

Features

Bose Bass Module 500: The Bose Bass Module 500 has been designed to perfectly complement the Bose Soundbar 500 (sold separately). It also works with the Bose Soundbar 700 and the SoundTouch 300 (both sold separately).

Wireless Connectivity: It connects wirelessly to the Bose Soundbar 500/700 and the SoundTouch 300. It has a wireless range of approximately 30'. The Bose Music App (for Apple iOS 10.3+ and Android OS 5.1+) is used to wirelessly connect the Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 to the Bose Bass Module 500. The SoundTouch 300's remote control is used to make a wireless connection between the soundbar and the Bass Module 500.

Hardwired Input: If for some reason a wired connection is preferred, the Bose Bass Module 500 and the Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 can be hardwired together using a standard 3.5mm audio cable. 

Placement: For best sound quality, the Bose Bass Module 500 should be placed on the floor against the same wall as the television and soundbar, with an electrical outlet nearby for the power cord. It should not be placed on a shelf or table. For more bass, the Base Module 500 should be placed closer to walls and corners. For less bass, the Bass Module 500 should be pulled away from walls and corners.

AC Power: The wireless powered sub requires AC power and comes with a detachable 5' AC power cord.

ADAPTiQ Audio Room Calibration: After you have positioned the Bose Base Module 500 in your room, plugged it into an AC power outlet, and connected it to your Bose Soundbar 500/700 or SoundTouch 300, you'll use the ADAPTiQ (headset supplied with soundbar speaker) to auto calibrate the system.

Optional Wireless Surrounds: In addition to the Bose Bass Module 500 and for a fully immersive sound experience, add the Bose Surround Speakers (sold separately) to your Bose Soundbar 500 or 700.
