Ive had mine for a month a half. Rear speaker seem to be fine. But sub pops. I read on another webpage to move the sub further away from soundbar. I had mine next to tv and soundbar. I moved across the room and put in corner next to sofa. It works much better.. Played video games for 3 hours pop free. It did act up a little today. Unplugging and plugging seemed to help for awhile. Maybe this will help some. Ill never buy Polk again though. Im still on 79 update. Im afraid to update because of the connectivity peoblems people are now having after update. They need to issue a recall on these. Im writing to consumer reports. Good luck people!

At 600 bucks... They should get it right the first time.

Polk is aware of the problem and is working on a solution that will correct the problem. This will be done via a firmware update so make sure you have connected your bar to the Internet. If the surround noises are too bothersome, unplug them until the issue is straightened out.

Hi folks. Just wanted to chime in as a new Magnifi Max owner. I bought the soundbar from a Big Box store earlier in week and then added the SR1 surrounds yesterday. Upon setting/syncing the surrounds, they crackled and popped furiously! I then updated the firmware. (which was stated to do on the box immediately after syncing!) The pops and crackling went away and the system has been quiet. So far it's been a great experience.

So it looks like it has to do with the frequents of the sounds. That's also the reason why talkshows/dialog have a lot of pops! Sometimes the sound of voices just reached the hertz what the sub make active. Than you hear the pop.
