    Just today I was listening to my system when I began to notice a very audible (and annoying) click coming from my center speaker (something leads me to believe the tweeter). It happens on multiple sources (HD sat and DVD). It's not obnoxiously loud, but is distracting enough to detract from watching a movie. It seems to be random, with no real pattern to the clicking. My center speaker is a Definitive Technology LCR2300 and my reciever is an Onkyo TX-DS797. What is wrong with my system, and more importantly, how can I fix it? The entire system is less than a year old, and has worked flawlessly until now.

    If it matters, the Onkyo is also driving a pair of Def Tech BP2006TL's and a pair of Def Tech BP2X's.

    Jon,

    What electrical appliances were on, a halogen light upstairs in a bedroom, a kitchen dining room dimmer, your neighbors arc welder in the garage (8~).... ? Doing laundry at the time ? A short in a section of the house by a bad junction (i.e a cob-job junction in a faraway pull switch light box)? I had one of those gems from a previous homeowner.

    Sounds very strange. Check ALL your connections... an AC plug loose, not firm, arcing ? Local power anomoly ?

    Just sounds so out of the blue based upon your reaction that perhaps it was the local power company providing less than optimal service.

    Hope you can find this gremlin

    Not knowing your speaker cables, or interconnects, that would be the first suspect(s). A bogus solder joint gone south for good, perhaps. Just go through all your connection in the AV first. Check all of them, even if you have to switch the bad suspect for a good one to verify.

    Good Luck,

    BOK

    Thanks Brian

    I'll check those things. Sounds like if its the power then it should go away in a day or so. The speaker wire I'm using is Monster XP, I think that should be fairly adequate, right?
