I've tried all the different configurations I can to avoid this, but the only method that avoid it sounds bad to me. The problem, when the power it turned on the powered subs pop. The level seems to vary and I'm concerned it's not good for the speakers. It doesn't seem to matter if the power is switched on before, during or after the rest of the equipment is switched on. The only configuration that doesn't pop requires me to leave the power to the subs on always. I don't feel comfortable doing that, it seems wasteful. So, is there any way to avoid the power on pop? I'd guess no. Can this popping cause damage to my subs? Thanks for any help!
