The other day I was experiencing a popping sound on my sub too. It turns out it did not have anything to do with my sub.
I have two Velodyne subs, a VA-1210 I purchased in 1997, and a Series 2 HGS-18 I purchased last year. Both have worked flawlessly until the other night when I heard a popping sound from my VA-1210. I have it positioned near my seating position with an end table nearby.
It turns out I had my cell phone on the end table near that sub and whenever the phone would communicate with my service there would be a random popping sound from my sub. I had tried different outputs from my pre/pro, plugging my sub into my voltage stabilizer using an extension cord. All to no avail. My cell phone is from Nextel with the paging, push to talk, and phone all in one. When ever I put it near speakers, popping sounds occur, but I didn't think about that laying it on my end table.
Not saying that this is your problem, but something to think about. I was ready to post on this forum, buy parts for it, or even have it shipped to Velodyne for repair.
I want to be SHAKEN not stirred!!
