After 4 years of great sound....A7-450 started giving cracking noise...even when there is no cable connected - only the power. 2 months ago i lost about $4K equipments due to lightening surge. I believe this sound started after that.
Sometimes annoying when listening to vocal during the movie and this noise at the same time....
$850 investment on a subwoofer that works for 4 years...mewww...no good...

I think I'd blame the lightening strike on not ED on this one.

You probably mean the A7S -450 sealed sub @$850 unless you got it used.

I would agree the lightning is probably the culprit. Regardless, what a bummer.

The good news is it might be fixable. That B&O ICE 1300 watt amp is worth fixing if bad, and you might just have to buy a new speaker, or just get the amp serviced.

My A7-350 ported is still making me smile.

Good luck!
