    A response from my friend:

    "The router may be too close to the soundbar or left speaker, causing the crackle. In this case, a firmware update will not be helpful.

    The Soundbar communicates with the wireless speakers and subwoofer via RF. Other nearby wireless devices, including wireless routers, can cause communication issues, resulting in popping or crackling sounds. Temporarily place the wireless surround speakers near the soundbar for initial re-pairing. Once paired, you can move the speakers to their desired location. Relocating other nearby wireless devices may be necessary. If you need more help, please contact Polk Support by visiting"
