    kinda like the breaking of popcorn in half...what should i do? left hand side near the corner of the monitor, sounds like in the monitor or speaker

    if theres no sound for like a minute and a half, next time there is there's a crack that sounds sort of like a spark

    I would take it to a apple store or call applecare about it and get it fixed.

    Does your happen spontaneously, 'cause I had a few times where it cracked because I was adjusting sound and plugging in headphones at the same time.

    yeah it once happened in the middle of a song - but it doesn't occur that often just every now and then, and i have no way of predicting whether or not it'll occur when im at the apple sotre

    do speakers need a break in period? is it static electricity? think i should keep it and if it doesn't get worse then be fine?

    I have this SAME problem on my Santa Rosa 2.2. I brought it into an Apple Store, but of course couldn't replicate it (its random, you damn geniuses), so they wouldn't do anything. Tell me what you find out...

    yeah that's why i don't think ill take it in...won't be able to replicate it. Might just be static electricity? If it doesn't occur THAT often, ill b ok. I guess if it just starts becoming more repetitive then ill take it in?

    and will do

    Exact same problem here on a latest-generation 24" iMac 2.8GHz. Started with the 10.5.2 update, definitely 10.5.2 -related in my mind. I'm using a Bose speaker system w/ subwoofer and the pop is so loud and deep it makes me jump. Let's hope 10.5.3 fixes this one!

    If it's hard to reproduce, it will difficult for the store to diagnose the problem and tell you what's wrong.
