Hopefully those who are experiencing this issue are all reporting to Volvo corporate and/or their dealership. The more feedback and complaints they get the faster it'll be resolved!
Volvo NA had access to my car for 5 days so hopefully this fix they pushed works. I haven't had another pop but I could go a month or two without one so we'll see. I'm doing my best to try every combination of drive mode/sound stage/driving type, moreso than I usually would. Not that I need an excuse to hit Polestar more often...Hopefully those who are experiencing this issue are all reporting to Volvo corporate and/or their dealership.

This exact thing happened to me, and I thought, "Damn, my windshield must be busted somewhere!"This happened to me about a week ago. '21 XC60 T-8 P* with B&W, around 1k miles on the car. Very loud pop from what I thought was the driver side...sounded like a rock shot up and hit the car or the windshield popped.
I have the exact same issues with the turn signal and it being much louder for a few ticks. This is separate from the speakers popping and cutting out, which have happened 6 or 7 times now, with only 2 occurring where all sound was lost.Hello everyone, had to register to join the forum just so I can be part of this fun conversation. XC90 '21 owner from Malaysia, Recharge, with the B&W audio system. With all the exact symptoms of audio cutting out with a loud pop. No turn signal ticks, no Sensus clicks, no audio etc until I cycle the car through a 10 minute complete stop and start. I think the common denominator here is that it happens when the turn signals are being used. I hope enough people around the world or experiencing this for Volvo to issue a worldwide software update instead of just being a North American one.
Edit: Would like to also add that I've also noticed a sudden volume increase occasionally when the turn signal is being used. Kinda like 'tick tick tick TICK TICK tick tick'. I think it's odd that Volvo engineered their cars to have all audio and indicator sounds come out of the same speakers instead of having them on separate and independent audio circuits. I mean, the B&W's are nice. But no, I don't need to have my turn signal indicators in concert hall mode.
FWIW my car was in service for 4 days and involved some "remote hookup" with Volvo NJ from the shop foreman. I hope it's a more streamlined process now..I would encourage all customers who experience the "pop" sound in their B&W audio system report it to their Volvo Retailer. An official SW fix is on the way but if a Retailer contacts the help desk they can get SW to fix the issue.
Let your dealer know. There is a software update available that's not officially released, but Volvo are giving it to dealers with customers experiencing the issue. I suspect they're trying to do more widespread testing to make sure it actually resolves.Have now had this happen twice on our '21 XC90 Recharge with B&W and air suspension. Listening to volume at about 30%, turn signal on - loud pop - then silence. no radio, parking sensors, but if you turn the radio up to 80% you can hear the subwoofer still working. There is definitely an issue in these vehicles that Volvo needs to fix. I hope they can resolve it with a software update.
I was running the software update and it was resolved, so I imagine this is not the same issue.The amps are not properly grounded. This is not a new problem, in the audio world, and any technician with proper training should be able to diagnose it in seconds. But at Volvo, the common solution is to apply a software update and send the customer home with a pat on their back.
Frankly, there is absolutely no way this will be solved via software update. We got rid of the car - but, if you are sticking with it, my advice is to take it to a proper audio shop. Volvo dealers have no clue on how to fix something like this, nor willingness to try, in most cases.
