I've been happily running my turbo for around 2 years now, but recently have been having some issues.

I watched a bunch of movies this weekend and during 2 of them, after about an hour and half in, the sub made a very loud POP like a gunshot, then continued on like nothing had happened. This wasn't during bass heavy movies either, so nothing should have been pushing it hard.

My wife reminded me that it happened once before around a year ago - same circumstances.

Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot the issue? It happens so infrequently that I don't know how I could even begin to test a "fix". Plus, I don't get to use the sub that often these days with a young baby.

I double checked my connections and they looked ok, but not sure what else to investigate.

Do you have anything else on the same circuit like a fridge? I have a SubMersive and had a mini fridge on the same circuit. Every now and then, when the fridge's compressor would turn on or off, the SubMersive would make a noticeable popping sound (even with nothing playing). After I moved the fridge, the popping sound stopped happening.

Unfortunately, I don't think that's my problem. I just played around with my breakers and it looks like my home theater equipment is on its own circuit (well, along with the room's lighting and other outlets). Nothing else major that I saw.

I experienced something similar about 2 years ago while testing the V1 driver.  He made a slight design change to prevent that from happening, and that's the driver being shipping now.

I'm sure Mark will "pop" by to answer you better though.  [wink]

Interesting. Looking through my old e-mail, it looks like I got my turbo in July 2014 after quite a long wait for drivers to come in stock. Not sure what revision that would be.

I could understand a minor "pop", but these have been "almost jump out of my seat pops"

I have never had or heard of a loud random POP at normal levels.

The driver change was just a different manufacturer 

I am at a bit of a loss as to what is going on here

When I heard it the volume was elevated, not at what most would consider 'normal'.

I have my receiver at around -20 (a reasonable listening level) and the Dayton amp at gain of 4. (Around 10:00)

you shouldnt be doing anything there to push the driver or amp hard enough to do anything bad.
