Hey guys. I have noticed that my speakers are popping. This happens when it switches to a commercial sometimes. I am using a Pioneer SC-05 receiver. There is a ground loop in my apartment. I noticed this by the purple lines on my projector. I fixed that by installing a special cable spliter and then running the cable through a UPS. The receiver plugs into the UPS as well. I am pretty sure the UPS is cleaning the power as well or at least keeping the current at sufficient level.
What could be causing the popping? This never happened before until I moved the UPS to another wall outlet. Could it be a setting on the receiver? Bad wiring?
This has happened on my front speakers as well as the back. I am kind of worried since I paid a good amount of money for these and want to keep them in the best condition possible. Can any of you guys help? What could be causing the popping?
How loud is the popping compared to the other sound coming out of the speaker? If it is not really loud I don't believe you speakers are in danger. Speakers are passive devices, unless you have a hardware malfunction in a speaker it only reproduces the sounds sent to it. since you mentioned that it was in all the speakers this means the problem is most likely in the AVR or the connections. You should check your speaker wires very carefully to make sure there is no loose stands at the AVR terminals or the speaker terminals. Check all you input and output connections on the AVR as well. If none of these are causing the pops it is internal to the AVR and could be caused by a number of things including your house wiring.
