Speakers pop when I turn the car off..

The soft start on a amp keeps the speakers from popping when you turn it on, I thought that it would do the same when you turn it off..It sounds like some kind of surge..It is only this amp that is doing it.. The Eclipse amp running the highs is not acting up..This amp is brand new and the head unit is also..

Re: Speakers pop when I turn the car off..

Most amps come with a soft start up that illiminates this problem... Im guessing that your amp does not have this feature and thats why you hear it. Read the manual and see if it states anythign about this.

I have an ma audio hk2000d. A couple years ago I hooked it up to a set of subs an it played just fine underpowered then it popped a fuse on the amp. Now every time I Start playing music the fuse pops. I...

Have you tried different speakers? If a speaker has a short, it will draw too much current from the amp and pop the fuse. Also, does the amp pop a fuse on idle, or just under load. What is the gain set for?

Amp pops randomly and gets worse with my remote bass knob hooked up any ideas ?

When you say that the amp "pops" are you referring to the sound that is coming out of the speakers?
This is most likely the speakers "bottoming out", i.e. moving as much as they can, and then slapping against the back of the speaker frame. Adding the remote bass knob (presumably increasing the signal to the amplifier) would make the problem a bit worse, which explains why the popping increases after you add the bass knob.

You can try decreasing the gain on your amplifier and running the system at a moderate volume. If there's no popping occurring, you can be reasonably sure that the subs/speakers are just being over-driven.

I have a brand new logic soundlab tx1002. it was hooked to a brand new radio and new speakers. When turned on, it is in protection mode. you get a popping sound from the speakers. we have checked all...

first disconnect one wire at a time, making sure the power is off. then connect power and check to see if your speakers are making the popping sound. when you do your speakers, make sure you disconnect both positive and negitive of each speaker at one time. when your amp goes out of protect mode you will have found your suspect wire. then trace to the issue. it could be as simple as crossed over possitive and negitive wires

Blowing fuses on the Vosonik VB101PK

ok, always use ground and positive from speakers to the amps +/- . Make sure the amp is not grounded. Some amps are made of metal and will ground itself. When ever any fuses pop, this means that something somewhere got grounded. If using metal srews to mount amp that has a metal casing, chances are you will pop a fuse or two. Be careful ajusting the speaker wires with a metal srewdriver, I've done that alot. "POP"

Girl has no idea lol

It's likely the amplifier but defective speakers or having speaker wires shorted to ground can cause strange problems also (depending on the way the protection circuit responds).


Disconnect the speakers from the amp and connect a speaker that you know is in good working order. Use a speaker that can handle a lot of power and be ready to switch the amp off quickly or disconnect the speaker wires from the amp in case the problem is in the amplifier (you don't want to damage the test speaker).

Hooked my punch Punch P450.4 up to speakers and ran rca cables to front and it wont work

Hi Jon,  you need to hook the Remote wire up to the Radios  Blue remote wire.  The car battery power stays on all the time.  The blue Remote wire watches to see when the radio turns on, and signal the amp to turn on as well.

Keep poping the 40 amp fuse on the amps itself when the volume is up at all it seems

Your units drawing too much current. it could be a wireing problem, a speaker problem, or the amp has a problem. the correct way to troubleshoot this would first do or have the amp bench tested. Or you can remove all the speakers and wires and turn up the amp. If the fuse still pops,have the amp serviced. Good Luck
