    Hey All,
    Just for schitz and grins I decided to test out powering on my BFD while my sub amp was already turned on. Well holy hell the pop was so loud and strong I thought it was going to blow me off my feet! [​IMG]
    I know not everyone experiences that pop, but I wouldn't leave it to fate! Just leave the BFD on all the time, or make sure you power on in the correct sequence! I thought maybe I had been shot! [​IMG]
    Later, Casey

    Richard,
    My post was not to express that I am unhappy in any way! As a matter of fact I just found it to be a little comical. Just sharing the experience! [​IMG]

    Yep, powering an equalizer on after the power amp/receiver is on is something you only do once!! And if you're lucky you aren't replacing your speakers. Every equalizer I've had - if you stop and read the manual (I did eventually) - says to turn it on before the amplifier!! I've read about cases where speakers have been blown in this manner..

    I'd pay $150 for it if it included this... [​IMG]
