This "Crackling" Problem is common with the Cerwin Vega VE-28S Subwoofer. If your subwoofer is out of warranty, and you know how to solder, you can fix the problem by replacing a few resistors, and transistors inside the amplifier. Get the parts on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/250756306868/

Does it only pop and crack when its connected to your amp or receiver ? i have the same thing with my sub [its not cerwin vega] but when i turn my amp off the sub doesnt pop anymore so i think my amp is the problem not the sub , yours might be the same problem .

I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.

Yeah, I've had two of these go out on me in exactly that failure mode. The first time, C-V bounced me around to two repair shops (a three-month process) before telling me to send it to them in Florida. This time, I went directly back to C-V with it, and they've had it two months now, and every time I call for a status update, I'm told "We'll let you know," or "We're working on the paperwork." Their service and support staff are not helpful - friendly, but not helpful - and the failure rate I've experienced is absolutely unforgivable.

So, my best solution I can give you is send it back for a warranty adjustment, and then sell it. As soon as mine comes back this 2nd time, it's going on the market, and I'm going out to buy a Sony.

channel in receiver might have gone out or did you blow fuse inside speaker - switch to other out put location to see if speaker is issue or receiver
