That movie is probably too demanding for the EP350. Now it sounds those scenes were overdriving the subwoofer causing port noise or even the bottoming out of the driver.

I would try some different movies that you know have some LFE and never caused these sounds before to determine if it is the movie or that if the subwoofer driver is damaged. The sub should not make a loud bang or pop either at anytime.

@ Dr House why thank you. Having not had any distortion previous to this and had the pre out level set to -2 i'm guessing pre out isnt the problem. Also the video is just an audio cd that I knew had a lot of bass in it \:\) so I was able to record the noise, I should have mentioned the 'clapping' isn't specific to that Bluray

@sirquack I believe it was as I used the calibration mic originally with all speakers & sub attached.

@fredk weird how was able to bottom out the driver this time having had no probs for 2.5 years! \:\(

There are a couple of things you can check to see what the driver damage might be.
1. Try gently pushing on the dustcap to see if the driver moves freely or if there is any scraping.

2. Check to see if the surround has separated from the frame anyshere.

Hi fredk

1. Pushing gentle on the centre of the dustcap results in free movement, however gentle pushing off centre or near the edges results in a scraping noise!!!

2. Surround and frame are intact.

Yup, that's a damaged woofer. Have you contacted Axiom?

keithd,

That "scraping noise" you experienced is a common symptom of a damaged driver. You are going to have to call them to arrange a replacement woofer being sent to you. The toll free number is 1-866-244-8796.

And it should be covered under warranty as you said it is only 2.5 yrs old. \:\)
