    Hi All

    I have just purchased a B&W ASW 2000 and since plumbing it in to my Denon 3802 I get a soft popping sound every now and again, sounds like a bubble bursting? Anyone any ideas what this might be...?

    Many Thanks

    Steve

    ...could be interference from a fridge or central heating, or, if only experienced when playing loud, could be the drive unit hitting its limit of "internal" travel...not good....

    AH!

    Just re-read your posting!

    Bubble sound - does it appear when its sitting doing nothing?

    My 605's do that when the internal amp switches off... after a few mins of non use...

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply...

    It makes the noise during quiet moments....just out of the blue...mind you, I wouldn't hear it during the other times anyway I suppose.. :)

    Doesn't do it at any regular interval....just starting to irritate me a bit.... :)

    Cheers

    Steve

    Hi, it sounds like you have it swiched on to auto on setting, where it turns its self on & off when the bass starts & stops, thats the sound of the amp turning on & off. Just switch it over to the allways on setting when you are going to watch films.

    Yep its on the auto on setting....my previous KEF was set to that as well and didn't give me a problem... :confused:

    So after a period of time the amp shutsdown if no bass feed is received? I would have thought there would almost be a constant feed whilst the TV is just on normal channels, so therefore wouldnt shutdown :confused:

    I will set it to always on tonight as a test, sounds like you are right though..

    Cheers

    That's ok, you can keep it always on. When going out you can turn it off though. I use auto on mine, it works nice. 5-10mins when it turns itself off, no sounds coming from that. TV don't usually need/feed sub at all, so it stays off. Also a higher level of volume on the amp is needed to trigger it.
