Why do my speakers pop?

Tech gurus...

I have a 5.1 surround setup at home.  My front left tower has been "popping" for a while now.  Every once in a while, there's a medium-volume "POP", with no discernable pattern to it.

So, finally, last weekend, I replaced the speakers.  But the new speakers are doing it too.  So, I'm thinking it's not the speakers.  But if it isn't, what could it be?  My sub-woofer is also in that corner (of the room).  Could that be it?  Even theoretically, what could make that kind of popping sound? 

BTW, my receiver is relatively new, a Sony, and I *think* the popping was going on before I upgraded it.

Any thoughts?
