If i stand back a few feet then i cannot hear the crackling. I just figured for 800 bucks and it being one of the top subs that it should be perfect.
I have met and talked with Leo, he is a good guy.
AFAIK, these subs do not need a warm up period. I can tell you that crackling is not normal and if coming from the sub itself, is something to be concerned with.
Double check the gain control on the amp and set it between 9-10 o'clock (if not already) and see if the noise is still there.
