A/C (Compressor Unit) at Start-up/ "pop" Noise and Lights Flicker

When the a/c/ compressor unit starts up; which is located on the roof; I here a loud "pop" and the lights in the house flicker (surge). The unit then runs normal. I've swapped out the 60 amp breaker; thinking the old breaker was weak; but still have the same problem. The contacts are fine.

Any suggestions out there? Thanks in Advance; AP

May be time for a hard start kit on the compressor motor. I don't know what the "pop" noise may be though. You would probably have to be at the unit when it fires to get a better idea of where it's coming from.
