Ok, so I got the 9853 about 8 months ago, and not long after it started making a poping sound through the front speakers. It will do it at the point in a cd everytime that cd is played. Now for some reason this problem goes away when any change to the eq happens, or when the mx is on.
I went to the shop where I got the deck, and they sent it off. Now I got a call today from the guy who is servicing it, and he said that he couldnt find any problems with it. I then went into more detail on what was happening and he seems to think that the problem is with a specific bass note, and that the problem is with my speakers, or that I'm 'eqing' that specific bass note out.
I'm using an external amp, and I've used 2 different sets of components. I've tried another amp, and have always had this problem. The eq is set to flat, with +1 to 40htz to make the problem go away. Any idea of that this could be? He also said that the deck will be shipped back as is.
