Damaging audio peaks while scrubbing and clicking through timeline

While clicking and scrubbing through the timeline I have experienced extremely loud audio peaks that damage my speakers.  I went through three new MacBooks, and two pairs of nice headphones in about the last 4 months (thanks apple care).  These peaks not only damage speakers/headphones, but are very painful to my ears.  I see from reading through the forums that this was an issue a few years ago, but haven't seen anything recently so I'm starting a new discussion to hopefully find an answer.  Blowing my new pair of Bose ear buds was the last straw for me.  Specs below.

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018)

2.9 GHz Intel Core i9

32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4

Radeon Pro 560X 4096 MB

MacOS 10.14.1

Premiere pro version 13.0.1

Hi all, can you post a copy of their Project for me to inspect?

Also, can you point out any other audio software that is installed or running in the background when you experience this?  iTunes or Audio Hijack or Twitch streaming in the background?

Also, were you playing when you added the audio effect, or had you just trimmed/moved a clip when you added the audio effect?

Any and all info would be very helpful.

Hi:

My screech-loop that blew my right speaker occurred when I was trying to record voice over in Premiere. It was a classic feed-back loop. Perhaps I missed that part of the manual that told me to mute my speakers before attempting to record VO in Premiere using my built-in mic.

I guess what I'm here for is some perspective. It seems that people on this and other threads have been listing all manner of audio tools in Premiere that have resulted in blown speakers. So maybe the problem really is Apple's sh*tty hardware. Or is it really the case, as I have heard one poster elsewhere say, that "no software should be able to damage hardware"?
