Inadvertent USB interface connection

I didn't find a similar question via search, so here goes. I just bought a pair of 8020C's for my small home studio. I inadvertently connected my USB interface to my Macbook while the interface's power switch was on, and also the power switches on the speakers where on, and this created a louder 'pop' than what usually happens when the power is turned on from an external switch. Any chance I could've broken something?

No chance. :) Our monitors are well protected against such noises.
