Question about Tannoy Reveal 6D Speaker
Hi Guys! both my over 1 year old Tannoy Reveal 66d Active amped speakers make a loud popping and crackling noise! i dont think i have any warrenty and dont have the reciept! even if there are no cables plugged in the speaker just pops and crackles when unpushing the mute button on the actuall speaker.. the other speaker does the same but not as bad.. Tried it on diffrerent power sockets in the house! and still same problem..
One possibility is that the mute switches on your speakers have oxydized contacts INSIDE the switch - this kind of malfunction mostly occurs when the equipment is exposed to moisture and/or smog.
The most common solution is to change both switches, but they can also be disassembled and cleaned up (which is a bit more complicated and time consuming).
Another possibility is a dried up filter capacitor in the power supply or somewhere in the preamplifier section, possibly also a bad preamplifier chip but if your speakers work fine (with the exception of the mute switch noise), then the problem is more likely with the switches.
Also, check the internal connectors for any dirt, broken wires or desoldered pins.
Could also be something else, you should know i'm only assuming on the possibilities and i'm listing the most common problems i've encountered so far.
