What causes speakers to pop?
I have a 2 year old Panasonic 5.1 home theater system that just recently started popping occasionally, but it is a very loud and startling pop. It happens infrequently, maybe once every 30-60 minutes, regardless of the source. What typically causes speakers to pop and is there anything I can do to fix it?

ususally means the speaker is fried.. (or getting to much power).. the coil could be rubbing or expanded.. etc
If it happens in all your speakers it's more likley to be a receiver problem
Wonder if this could be some sort of static discharge? Perhaps you should check your grounding.

Is there some new appliance located nearby that is turning on and off? Alot alot of people (myself included) often experience a pop in Dolby Digital mode when a broadcast station switches audio modes. You indicated it happened at regular intervals and from all sources however so it still sounds like a receiver problem.
