    Hi,

    Just a quickie............every time I turn on my amp, and the speakers power on, I get a loud popping noise from the right surround speaker, but none of the others. The speaker works perfectly well though ! :confused:

    I seem to remember this happened for a while when I first bought the amp and speakers, and then stopped, but its now started again.

    Any ideas what might be causing it ?

    Ian.

    Speakers only "pop" if they are fed a "pop" signal (no not boyzone etc) :laugh:

    The fault must lie in your amplifer.

    Swap cables/speakers over (either at the speaker end or the amp end) & you'll see it's the amp or the speaker causing this.

    Still get the popping noise :confused:

    Swapped my rear speakers over, and the problem still only occurs on the
    right rear.
    Its bizarre - when I turn the amp on from "cold" the right rear comes on with a loud pop; turn it off and back on again quite quickly and it comes on with the normal click !

    What else could it be ? Speaker wire maybe ? I've not tried changing that yet........

    Ian.

    The 'pop' generally is caused by a small power surge when the amp is turned on. You used to always be advised to turn the volume down to 0 prior to turning amps on to prevent damage to the speakers or amplification circutry but now-a-days I believe there is built in circutry in the amps to protect against this.

    By the sounds of it your amps protection needs to 'warm up' a little on that channel before it works correctly.
