Loud Pop when turning on?

I just received my unit yesterday. I am so far absolutely thrilled with it. Sounds fantastic and the user interface is also fantastic. However I’m a little concerned about the loud pop when I turn it on if my FRFR cabinet was turned on first. Most of the sound companies / engineers are not going to be happy after they get me all hooded up, then I turn this thing on and it pops the hell out of their speakers / PA. Does anyone else notice this or is it possible I have a setting incorrect or a defective unit?
Thanks

As with all speaker advice, turn on your speakers last when turning everything else on. And when turning everything off, your speaker(s) should be the first thing turned off. Follow this and loud pops will never be a problem, no matter what device you’re using.

Although I fully agree with Imdur’s advice (this is simply necessary for the safety of our technology), I still believe that this very situation in the field of instrumentation requires a radical attention, since people are not robots and make mistakes too often. There are guitar processors and other sound devices on the market that turn on without a click, the problem is not absolute and has a practice of solutions.
Guitarman, I also have a loud pop, but a little quieter than the level from which I start to worry and pre-turn off the speakers (BEHRINGER Truth B3031A)

Thanks for your reply. It is no problem for me to Turn my CLR cabinet on last but when wired direct to the pa you can almost guarantee I t will be on when I turn the Quad on. The sound company with their 10-30k sound system is not going to be happy. Neither is anyone not wearing ear plugs. I hope, no pray They address this soon in an update. The outputs should be isolated and silenced during boot up. Even my 500 dollar amplifier 12 is much quieter.

If the QC platform allows to change the startup process so much that Pop is eliminated, @Doug I’m ready to buy a second, because the first sold :grin:

It’s pretty common for your mixer input to be muted until you ask for it to be turned on.

Or, you know, don’t plug the cable in until it’s on

Big problem, should be solved. That noise during boot up should be eliminated.

I use a Mission Gemini. I turn the volume down to 0 when turning on, or off. The pop is then minimal.

It also pops when turning off.

Maybe turn it on and after it starts plug the XLR’s for PA?

In my case I get continuous buzz hum from my amp after I turn the QC off. This is unacceptable since it means I have to unplug from the amp at that time.
