Physically hit your new MBox and watch the signal lights light up

Is it just me or is that weird?

I think it's weird you taking your anger out on your studio gear.

not weird at all... i hate my mbox2. i had a friend who is not an engineer who could hear the difference clearly. It wasn't even a shootout. I just changed to a FIREBOX of all things and the dude said, wow its so much clearer now... POS

but why would the signal light come on when the chassis takes a hit?

Is there a mic plugged into it that's live in the room with you?

My guess is that some component/s is/are microphonic. Even a simple cable can become microphonic, but it's probably a capacitor. Same principle as a condensor microphone. Or maybe just a crackly power or input connection. The jolt would create a brief transient spike, which would trigger your clip indicator, which no doubt has some averaging code that extends the time the leds light up.
