    What version of software (if you're able to see it on the GH app) do you have on your MaxSR?

    V91. As far as I can tell they haven’t even acknowledged it.

    It's completely unusable, and quite frankly unacceptable.
  • My surround speakers make random noises and the subwoofer as well. Wish I’d read all these comments before purchasing. 6-8 weeks old.
    Polk, what do you say should be done? Is a software fix coming to correct this or do I return for a refund. My dog is freaking out! Never any warning this is going to happen.

    Return it for a refund. Random/unexpected noises from a stereo/electronics are unacceptable, imo.

    Can't return it to retailer after 14 days. They need to issue an RMA. Have us fill out a form and send us a return label or two. Or take them to UPS. Or recall them where we can go to BestBuy or wherever we purchased them for a full refund/store credit.

  • Any idea why my Max’s sub plays at 20% it’s potential..? Even when maxed everything else sounds good and the sub increases along but still at only 20%. Thanks in advance.
  • albertrjr - I’m having the same issues since updating firmware to version 103. If you link to my last post below you will see my comments >

    From my experience. This soundbar system is great. In my opinion crackling and popping its not related to hardware and firmware. Its related to source. I bought it and I did not update firmware. For one week I was using system with very basic LG UBK80 Not problems at all. Audio was limited to 48Hz and everything was working perfectly. Soonest i plugged in Sony UBP-X800 i had problem similar to the others. It is source problem not Polk Audio. Actually setting up source properly according to technical data on soundbar.
  • My surrounds pop and crackle. Those pops and crackles are tied to tv show content, not interference from other devices. Performance has improved over the last few months, but it is still a problem and still very annoying.
  • Same problem here...for awhile subwoofer wouldn’t even work at all without a daily power cycle, now I just have to deal with the irritating crackle that is present no matter the input source (streaming, Bluetooth music, tv content) pretty terrible for such a great sounding system (when you turn it up loud enough to not have to listen to the constant crackles and pops)
  • Got the noises in the Rear Speakers fixed by having the system running on 5Ghz wifi.
    Luckely in my Router I can set different names for the 2.4 and 5Ghz wifi.
    The subwoofer still makes a popping cracking sound but way less and rather low volume. Maybe helps
