    Today I discovered a new sound in my SVS 20-39PC+. The best way I can discribe it is either a metallic ie. metal on metal or like a cricket chirping. The grill has not been off and I do not listen at very loud levels. Any ideas what this might be or what is causing it?

    Has the sub been calibrated?

    sometime if the sub is not calibrated it can make some very strange sounds, as I found out.

    In my case the receiver was set way to hot, about 11db.

    But as Ed recommended call the pros

    SVS does (of course) extensively test every sub that leaves the factory.

    Despite exceptionally good packaging, UPS has occasionally succeeded in knocking/dropping a sub so hard that the VC actually misaligns and scrapes in the gap, causing that chirping sound you are hearing.

    While the problem might be something totally different, the thought about VC shipping damage did occur to me, and I just wanted to pass it on.

    It could also be an air leak. That can make a whistling sound also.
