    Hello glennstlwater,
    Thanks for posting on Polk's forum. Something has to be inducing the popping humming sound into the speakers, as passive devices they can't produce any sound on their own. I'm assuming these are surround channel speakers, correct? If so, is the connecting wire run through your walls? Did you do the wiring yourself or did someone else do it?
    Regards, Ken

    Also try unplugging the input cables that are connected to the transmitter from the receiver.
    If it is still popping, then try unplugging the transmitter's power supply.
    The transmitter operates at 2.4 Gigahertz so it might be picking up stray RF interference from any other wireless devices in the house.
