Actually it occurs when the system is turned off and the subwoofer is in auto standby mode. It also occurs when the theater is up and running with either cable or dvd input.
However, I think I may have narrowed it down to observing it ONLY occuring when the subwoofer goes from on to auto standby. I might try turning it off and on depending on when I use it and see if that will bypass this popping noise.
After doing some research, I found a forum on car stereos where a person was having it happen to a subwoofer in their car when it when on auto standby. The person responding in that particular forum said that it has something to do with a build up of energy or something and that it would not harm the subwoofer.
By the way I never really push my system, it is mostly used for movies and the volume rarely exceeds what it can handle. Every once in a blue moon I will turn the volume way up to piss my wife off for fun, but that is it.
