    Hi guys

    I have my PC Ultra connected to a BFD, when switching off the BFD the PC Ultra does the old bass pop, this makes the wife jump, and she has asked me to see if it can be rectified? Any ideas peeps?

    I do get worried that the pop may damage the sub/driver too, am I being paranoid?

    Kazman - the best way to stop this is by not turning the unit off, i never turn any of it off it has been on since i got it nearly a year ago.

    As the BFD isn't really designed for low frequency use in the same way as AV receivers are, it might not have muting capacitors on the output to prevent the bass pop. If that's the case I can't think of any way of rectifying it without some major surgery to the BFD, when I get back to Bath and buy the right cables I'll have a look myself.

    Do you get the same pops when the sub's connected directly to your 7400?

    Nope, not when connected to the SR7400 directly, I think you may be right though, may not be possible.

    The back of the ultra is too awkward to get to, think i'll just leave the BFD on.

    It's just the downside of using a BFD I suppose, I certainly hadn't even considered it before.

    Mods, this thread might be better in the normal Subs section, I don't really think it's turned out to be SVS specific. That is if you don't mind Kaz :)
