Altec Lansing subwoofer problem - or is it?

I recently added a different speaker/subwoofer set to my pc. I had been using a small Boston Acoustics set (also w/ a sub), but I came into posession of a used Altec Lansing set, which came with a substantially larger subwoofer.

Here's the problem:
The Altecs sound fine at relatively "normal" levels, but I turn up an mp3, I notice the sub produces some odd sounding pops.

I'm running SoundBlaster Audigy on a Win98 1.3ghz system.

Is it safe to assume the sub is flawed?
Is it better for the sub to sit on carpet, or on one of those plastic floor pads?

Do you have a knob to adjust the bass in the sub? maybe it's set too high.
