My subwoofer just started making popping noises on its own. I had left the room for awhile with a television program on. When I returned, the subwoofer was making popping noises that seemed to correlate with heavy sounds coming through the sub.

I have tried a variety of things; including shutting off, unplugging, etc. with no improvement. I also found that with the speaker disconnected from the AV system, the popping continued. And it seems to be from any noise in the room; especially if you lightly tap/pound on the subwoofer case. Its as if something is picking up the noise from the room and causing the subwoofer to react with errant sound.

Can anyone shed some light on this before I contact Velodyne for support?

Thx - Mark

Make sure every thing is sealed tight, including the speaker and the amp. If the problem continues you can post this on the Velodyne support thread. Curt will be happy to tell you what the problem may be and who to contact.
