I am experiencing loud popping and crackling sound at high volume after speaker is warmed up. Speaker cones move smoothly when pushed gently by hand. Sound almost seems to be coming from inside.

Sounds like it could either be the crossover circuit or a distorted speaker cone. The cone is the easy one to check. You need to check that it moves freely at all points. It sounds like you have partly done this, but you just need to make certain you went all the way around the cone checking for free movement.
However I don't think it is the cone, because of the slow way it acts up. That could be the crossover circuit. If you have a look at it and see either an IC or transistor looking parts, then I would have thought it would be one of them acting up - presumably getting hot!
If you can have the speaker outputting sound, with access to the crossover, you could spray these parts (one at a time if there is more that one) with Servisol Freezer spray. You simply wait till the fault develop then spray the suspect part. If it returns to normal you have located the faulty part. If nothing happens, wait till the coolant wears off then try the next suspect.
Places like Maplin stock the Freezer spray.

My sub make a strange noise. It doesen't work anymore.Tks.

Strange noises can come from your amplifier or the sub itself. The most likely cause of the strange noise is the speaker just before it dies! If you have been using the sub-woofer at high volume levels then you probably have damaged it. Try testing the sub-woofer using a multimeter(on ohms setting) it should give you a reading from 8 to 4 ohms. Sometimes they may give readings as low as 1 ohm. When testing the speaker/sub you should hear a soft scratchy, thumping or clicking sound. This indicates that the speaker may still be working. If you don't have a multimeter try a 1.5 volt battery (say a AA), DONT USE HIGHER VOLTAGE BATTERIES they may damage the speaker! You will hear a clicking, scratching etc sound from the speaker which may indicate that it is still OK. If the speaker seems OK the problem may be in the amplifier, which I suggest you bring to a professional repairer. When buying speakers and amplifiers make sure the power handling of the speaker is equal to or greater than the amplifier output power. This should stop speakers from getting damaged. Make sure the speaker and amplifier specifications are rated in the same manner ie RMS PMPO Peak. A 100 Watt PMPO speaker will not survive the output of a 100Watt RMS amplifier!

I'm getting a loud "popping or clicking when i plug the sub in. also i noticed the green light comes on immediatly when the loud popping begins. the loud popping dosen't stop untill i unplug it

What's feeding it? The sub comes on automatically when it senses a signal, which seems to be what it's doing. Perhaps the loud clicking is originating at the other end of the cable.

Panasonic SC-PT467 Wireless speakers Clicking

I had this exact problem. The clicking is something to do with interference from the power supply cable. It seems that facing the wireless unit in the most obvious way ensures that the power cable and the right speaker cables cross. All I did was turn the unit around so that the wires no longer crossed and magically the clicking sound disappeared forever!!!

Good luck !!

Cerwin Vega V-10S Subwoofer doesn´t sounds good

dear "rai17"

This, to me, is most likely the voice coil inside the driver rubbung against the yolk plate, or possibly the spyder slapping the metal plate underneath it, or the amp-(if it has one?) getting tired. this can occur from poor build quality, or playing the subwoofer too loud. depending on how much it cost you, you may want to get it repaired(voice coil re-alignment or something or new amp). But the way it seems, it is probably the driver itself. subwoofers get looser as they break in. This one may have been over-broken....sorry

I hope this helped clarify what is happening!
