I have the above mentioned items attached to my TV and PS5. I have tried both optical and HMDI/ARC inputs (it's actually worse with HDMI). Anytime I am watching something, the audio coming out the rear speakers seems to have a popping sound. Using occurs during sudden increased volume from the source. I have tried the following
Moving the receiver closer
Returned the item and got same model
I have read that there is a possibility that it could have something to do with the Wifi signal that is going across the house from the mesh system I have, however, I turned that off and still have the popping sound. I love the sound when it works and really don't want to change the units I have. Looking for some help.
I am having crackling sound in my rear right speaker(SWA-9100S) that comes with my HW-Q850A. I need help too. You can really hear it with this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqVCPE8_ntE
I tried switching the port either speaker was plugged into. I tried tuning off and factory resetting the sound bar. I tired changing the settings. I tried changing the input from my tv ARC to my phone's blue tooth. Nothing works.
I tried swapping out the receiver and two rear speakers with a new receiver and two rear speakers.(You can buy SWA-9100 without buying the HW-Q850A kit). Did not work, figured it was the sound bar. Exchanged the HW-Q850A for a new one. Now I set the new one up and its is still doing the crackling static sound!
On top of all this, one of the shipments came damaged and had to be returned... I've been to Best Buy so many times. I need help.
