Question about Cerwin Vega VE-28S Subwoofer
Since we got this sub last Christmas it has had a periodic popping, crackling and thumping sound. Sometimes loud enough to make us jump. Initially we put on the ground elimination plug like CV recommended to eliminate a hum. That worked well.
These other sounds are making us concerned that we may have a bad receiver or the speaker is bad.
The receiver is a Sony STR DE475. It puts out 185 watts and in "like new" condition.
We only turned up the speakers a few times just to feel the rumble of the speakers.
Any idea about the noises and what we can do to eliminate them?
I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.
