Question Volt 8 and 1099 popping sound?

I have just finished building my 1099 and volt 8 speaker kits and they sound incredible. Only issue I have is that when pausing and unpausing a movie or simply changing the volume, they make a popping/crack noise. Is this normal, does every speaker do this. Like if i hold down the volume up or down it's like each increment the volume goes up it makes a popping noise. It does this also with pausing and un pausing. Bad connection? Speaker blown somehow?
Thanks!

ps my receiver is denon avrx1600h

Does the popping/cracking sound come through all your speakers?

It's hard to tell, I think it's mostly the surrounds (Volt-8s), but a little bit from the 1099 too

You can disconnect the surrounds and leave the LCR connected and play content. Then do the same for the surrounds. This way you can determine if the popping sound comes through all or some of the speakers.

What happens when you change sources? I agree with 636 above, disconnect speakers randomly and then maybe change sources too, especially if the main source is your cable box. I know they can cause a hum in the system, but clicking from each remote input seems different.

Yup. If the sound emanates through all the speakers, then I'd inspect the sources.

In my old life repairing consumer electronics equipment (lots of receivers and amps), this was usually caused by a defect in the AVR sending the popping or clicking noise into the audio path. Since all modern AVRs are using digital stepper type controls for volume and other adjustments instead of old-school potentiometers, sometimes those digital pulses can be carried into the audio path. It is very likely not your speakers.

Thanks guys! It heavily depends on what I'm playing at the moment. It only does it for certain movie scenes or music, usually it's more apparent when there is a lot of bass happening.

Sounds like clipping or distortion to me. I had some cheaper dome MTM that would do this. I have no idea why yours is happening though.

What speakers did you have before ? Remember the new speakers are like 99dB/w/m, you might just now be hearing a sound that was always there.

I agree, this sounds like your AVR or your source material.

I would plug the speakers into another amp if you have one.

I was just playing the movie Midway and in chapter 3 when all the planes are flying by and explosions are going off there seems to be a sustained bass note or something in the soundtrack. Whenever I pause the movie around there, the surround speakers (volt-8s) let out a loud pop when I pause and unpause during that scene. I am only at -22 for volume. Could it actually be a problem in my receiver, should I replace it?

Yes. That was suggested as a suspect earlier.
