    EV ELX112P Loud popping sound after power on

    Hi,

    Really hoping someone can help me with this. I have two EV ELX112P Powered speakers, one of which has started to pop some time (30s - 1min) after powering up.

    There are two inputs each with a level control, and after a bit of experimentation, I found that if I keep the level 2 control down to minimum, I don't get the popping sound. I'm guessing that there's some problem with a capacitor in this input circuit, but just wondered if anyone had heard of something like this before I get it repaired.

    OK, it's not specific to an input stage, repeat tests have shown that I was wrong about that.

    So does anybody know what might be causing this? I can probably do simple tests, I'm comfortable taking things apart and I have a multimeter, I just don't have any electronics knowledge.

    I should add that this happens with nothing connected to either input, I have tried it in my rehearsal space and at home so it's not related to the building power, and I have a second identical speaker that is fine.

    The amps in these are usually replaced as complete units. There is no service information available. They use SMPS and class D amps, which are things repaired only by experienced technicians.
    You could probably try swapping different boards between your good and bad units, but even if you identified which board is defective, you would not be able to buy a replacement board, just the entire electronic module.
    Here is an example of the replacement unit:

    Ouch...annoying. Thanks!

    The speaker works OK after the popping, so I can keep the volume down on power on (which stops the popping), wait until it's 'warmed up' then turn up the dial. Dunno how long it will last, but it's been OK like this for months
