Speakers are an essential part of any home theatre system, and they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. One question that many people have is why speakers pop when you turn them on? There are two main reasons for this: the first being because there is air trapped inside the speaker cabinet; and the second reason is due to thermal expansion when turning on a large amplifier or power amplifier.
In order to understand why speakers pop when you turn them on, it’s important to first know how a speaker actually works. A speaker is basically an electromagnet that converts electrical energy into sound waves. In most cases, the diaphragm within the speaker becomes conductive because of an electric current running through it and this change in conductivity is what causes the speaker to make noise.
This means that when you turn on a speaker, it will produce sound waves until all of the air insides of it has been pushed out. This process can be sped up by blowing gently across or below your speakers and this will help them pop so they are ready for use. The second reason why speakers pop when they’re turned on is that the sound waves are being reproduced at a rate that’s faster than what you may be used to.
How Do I Stop My Speakers From Popping?
If your speakers are popping when you turn them on, try blowing gently across or below the speaker to help it pop. If that doesn’t work and they continue to make a noise after being turned off-on again, then contact the retailer or manufacturer for further instructions.
Is Popping Bad For Speakers?
No, popping is the sound of air going into your speakers and restoring them to their original shape.
If a speaker pops three times in one minute or longer than that, then it’s possible that there may be something wrong with the soundwave output or its mechanism. Contacting an expert might be necessary at this point for advice on how to fix the problem.
The speaker pops when you turn it on because there is a vacuum created inside of it that needs to be filled with air before producing sound waves again. Turning your speakers off and then back on fills this vacuum, releasing the pressure so they can work properly again without popping.
Can You Fix A Blown Speaker?
Speakers can’t be “blown out” like a light bulb. If your speaker has popped more than three times in one minute or longer, you should contact an expert for help with figuring out how to fix the problem.
A blown-out speaker is damaged by over-driving it so much that its coils are burned up and can’t be fixed.
Can you fix a blown speaker? Sometimes, yes! There are replacement coils available that can replace those coils in the speaker and allow it to work again. An expert might need to help determine whether or not this is an option for your speaker depending on its make and model.
If there’s no sound coming from the speaker, you may just need to turn your volume up. If the sound is distorted or choppy when it does come through, that means there’s a problem with some component of the system and an expert will be able to help diagnose exactly what needs repairing.

What Are The Components Of Your Speakers?
– Speaker cone: The part of the speaker that moves back and forth in order to create sound waves. It usually does not have any electronic parts or controls but rather relies on vibrations from an attached voice coil.
– Voice Coil: The metal wire wrapped around the speaker cone that moves back and forth when you turn on your speakers. It carries an electric current from the power supply to create sound waves by magnetically interacting with the moving magnetic field of a permanent magnet (a “pole piece”) attached to it or sometimes embedded in its surface, or with the moving magnetic field of a voice-coil.
– Permanent Magnet: The magnet that produces the magnetic field when you turn your speakers on and creates sound waves as it moves back and forth. It is usually made of a ferrous material such as steel, boron or neodymium but there are other types like samarium cobalt that are used.
– Voice-coil Former: The metal or plastic tube wrapped around the speaker cone causes it to move back and forth when you turn your speakers on. It carries an electric current from the power supply to create sound waves by magnetically interacting with a moving magnetic field of permanent magnet (pole piece) attached to a voice coil.
– Loudspeaker: The device that converts electric power into sound waves for broadcasting and reproducing live or recorded sounds by an attached loudspeaker cone, which is in turn driven by a coil of wire (voice-coil).
– Permanent Magnet Field: A system consisting only of one magnet, with no other magnetic material in the vicinity.
– Electromagnet: An electromagnet is a type of magnet that has its magnetic field created and shaped by an electric current, as opposed to permanent magnetism from a natural source like Earth’s poles.
Why Do My Speakers Sound Bad At High Volume?
Speakers have a limit to how much power can be delivered and consumed. If you exceed this limit, the speakers will distort or even pop at higher volumes due to overloads of current. This is why it’s important not to turn your speaker volume up too high when playing music on them. Always use proper listening levels so that you don’t overload the speakers.
Can You Damage Speakers By Playing Them Too Loud?
A speaker’s ability to handle higher volumes is limited by three things: power, distortion and clipping. When you turn your speakers up too loud, the sound waves coming out of them will be louder than what they’re capable of producing safely. This can lead to damage in either the driver (the part that converts electrical energy into acoustic) or the amplifier.
