Question about Car Audio & Video
Me and a friend were listening to music and I just bought new amp and 2 subwoofers (JL W0V3) and all of a sudden my subs stopped playing. Not moving at all. My power protection light is red and my fuses are fine. I went to change stations and my door speakers made a thumping/popping noise... So I turned my truck off and when it shut off my door speakers made same noise. It only makes noise when radio is on though. Also I looked at the light and it dims and brightens. But this only dims when its switched to 12v or DC. when I switch it to the audio option is completely shuts off. What could this be? Also I hooked up my subs to friends amp (kicker 250.1) and they work fine. Subs work fine.

SOURCE: Amp makes subs pop
It sounds like your amp chip has gone bad, here is some thing you can try turn on your unit then start tapping on top of with your finger not hard see if the any of the pops matches your finger taps some times when the chip starts to go out it well act like that.

The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.
