A popping noise? Could it be the clicking of a relay? There is a relay that activates the compressor that could cause a clicking sound if it doesn't hold. A popping sound could be a bad capacitor but normally isn't a continuous popping sound, unually only one pop.
If the unit is only 4 monthes old it should still be under warranty and you should call it in for repair.
Try increasing the latency. Depending on your computer, it may not be able to handle low latency levels. Latency is a measure of the delay between the time you make a sound and the time the computer records that sound. With the Mbox mini, the unit for latency is the number of samples the driver collects before sending them to an application as input. Lower latency can make recording easier and more accurate, but not all computer systems can operate at the lowest latencies without introducing noise.
Open the Mbox mini dialog and select the latency tab. experiment with higher latency levels and see if it goes away.
This is what the dialogue might look like.
another solution would be to try a different DAW. I had the same problem with my Fast Track Pro in ProToolsand it worked fin on Reaper, Garageband and Logic.
The heating elements had burned up in the unit therefor creating a dead short on that circuit. Main breakers on homes and buildings are VERY sensitive and will sometimes trip before the smaller branch cicuit breakers will . So the popping you heard was the heating elements breaking down inside the unit it can be some what noisy.
This worked for me on my M604: Try inserting/removing a headphone plug into the jack several times to see if that clears the problem.
The "popping" sound is very similar to the sound that the unit makes when inserting headphones into the 'headphone' jack on the back of the unit.
The jack has a contact switch that triggers a relay inside the unit. If that contact switch is 'on the verge' of making contact, slight temperature changes may cause deform closer to it's contact target. The subsequent capacitance build-up and discharge across the gap could explain the cycle of popping noises after the unit warms up.
disconnect the woofer and connect a different speaker see if other speaker makes the same pop if it don't then the woofer cone is defected if you have high watts and using stereo on high volume you can damage speakers.
