8240a - 'pop' sounds when switching on

8240a - 'pop' sounds when switching on

Dear all,

Another issue I've noticed on my 8240a's:

When switching them on the speakers make two clear 'pop' sounds. The first one sounds like it's coming from the tweeter and a second later another one coming from the woofer. This happens in both units.

Is this something normal? :roll:

All the best

Yes it's perfectly normal to have faint 'pop' sounds when the speaker is turned on.

I have the same kind of pop in the woofer of one of my 8260 ! But surprisingly the other is dead silent when switched on ?
