So loud and so sudden we jump out of our seats. It is truly unbelievable.
It is a newly renovated basement, we are in an arid climate and it is plugged into a surge protector.
Suggestions? Tips? Help?
Plenty of open air space all around the unit?
No loose or frayed wires?
What kind of surge protector? What do you have plugged into it?
Possibly overloading the surge protector?
Plug the receiver directly into the wall receptacle.
Literally unplug everything and start reconnecting one at a time.
Go into the receiver menu and set the maximum volume to a lower number. Do you already have this set?
Find instructions for doing a factory reset.
