Unhappy Rear Speakers Popping with ANY bass

half a year ago i got pretty cheap rear speakers for my old surround sound setup (everything else works great) and they make a very loud and annoying popping or crackling sound whenever there is even the slightest amount off bass. Are the speakers broken?

These are the speakers:

Not necessarily, but if you're sending significant power below 80Hz into a 4 inch driver you can expect that it won't be happy about it.

No. You set them as "small" in the setup program. That will send the bass to the subwoofer.

It could either be the speaker reaching its limits or something else in the signal chain clipping.
Either way, that's a good fix.

i have one more question for you guys, i pushed my from speaker way too much a month ago (with bass) and every time there is a bassy voice it makes a high pitched kind of crackling sound. its not noticable in movies and its not that loud in general but i was wondering if i damaged my speaker. (i have re stripped the wire that didn't help)
