I recently got my hands on a nice set of 1019A's.
Couldn't be happier with the sound quality!
There's only one thing that's troubling me: when i power them up, i get this big pop.

The excursion of the low driver is so big i'm afraid of damaging them =/
Is this considered as normal or should i start fault-searching on the amplifier board?

The caps still look like they're in good shape and i don't see any alarming crispy bits on the PCB (rev4).
Thanks in advance for any info on this!

Hi Seppe,

Thank you for your post. It is quite normal that in the 1019A when turning on the "pop" sound can be "loud" and the excursion is visible also on the woofer.
