Hey, quick question for you Polk owners out there. I have a wierd problem that Im hoping some of you can help me with.
Polk Monitor 60 ii - L + R
Polk Monitor CS1
Polk Monitor 40s - Surround
OK so here is the problem. Every thing sounds great except for some circumstances when I am watching my Verizon Fios on HBO and Encore. When I am listening at low to moderate volumes, I get what sounds like clipping from my Left, Right and Center. When there are explosions or heavy noise, it sounds like there is a static that increases with the intensity of the explosion. The funny thing is, its really not on very loud at all, and seems to only happen on HBO and Epix channels. When I flip to another station, like Starz and leaving it at the same volume, I get no clipping sounds. Even increasing the volume, and watching an intense scene like Two Towers - Helm's Deep battle, I get no clipping or static sounds whatsoever.
I flip back to HBO or Epix, and once it gets to a louder scene, I get that static again. I should note that it seems the intensity and frequency of the static sound increase and decreases both with the my changing of the gain on my reciever as well as volume peaks through out the movie im watching.
So, am I clipping my Polks? If so, why is this clipping specific to HBO or Epix channels and not happening when I change to another station and increase the volume.
I appreaciate any help and insight you all may have. Thanks.
