Speaker makes a popping sound when car starts

Installed a new deck couple days ago ( panasonic cq-8803u) and when i start my car my speakers make a loud pop. then thats it. If i play a cd in my deck all my speakers work great. No problems at all. But when i play the radio i only get bad quality sound out of one speaker. My speakers should be wired correctly since the cd's play nice. I'm not sure wat the problem could be coming from. Antenna connection is good. could there be a short somewhere since i get the popping? actually the pop happens as soon as the head unit is powered up. Any ideas?

I have a Panasonic CQ-DF601U ... I hooked it up but get no sound from speakers. Also the side of it gets really hot. Is that normal for the heat sync side.

It may be getting hot because the amp is shorted out. If you have a bad speaker or one that is grounded, you won't have any sound. Disconnect all the speakers and connect them back one at a time. If the first one doesn't work, disconnect and start with a different one. If none of them work is is in the stereo. If any work, i would check the ones that didn't to see if they are bad or grounded out.

Hi again,

My apologies, missed the connection. Now I remember, must be really getting old.

Back to your concern, which fuse pls? the 15 amps for the Panasonic or the amp"s fuse.

Incidentally, even if the speaker wires were wired incorrectly, that would not cause the fuse to blow. The only way the fuse would blow is if the unit was connected with the polarity reversed, even just once. Internally, most units have a reverse protection diode and/or regulator that would short circuit itself. Thereafter even if it were wired correctly to the battery, the fuse will always blow.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

No sound...

you have wires grounding out at the back of the unit. i suggest trying to completely rewire it and see how that works. its easy if youve never done an install so dont sweat it. email me if you have any questions.

When you unhooked your deck it still had power going to it, you need to unplug your car battery and plug it back in that should reset the deck and get the error message to go away.
Good luck,

Problems with cd player

Need to Know what shuts off. Power or audio just Shuts off.
If Power is cutting off try disconnecting all speakers see if it stays on. If it does connect 1 speaker at a time if you hear a pop when connecting any of the speakers or when fist turning on you probably have on side of speakers grounded (common ground) this radio is not designed to have any speaker be grounded since each speaker wire is at a 6v potential. Do all speakers produce proper sound when stereo is working if not whatever speaker isnt may be defectve. Just a couple of many possibilities.

No sound from CQ-1305U car CD/stereo

You may have one of this two problems:
One of the speaker wires is grounded to the chassis.
Or your car may have a factory amplifier between the radio and the speakers.
My suggestion is to rewire the speakers lines

MY panasonic CQ-C9700u starts to skip sound threw the speakers when i put it over 25 on the volume but the bass box still goes until 40?

Hi Lando,

Your Sub box gets its signal from the PReamp output. This means your problem stems from the CQ-C9700U amplifier section. You may need service from Panasonic on this one, or a new Head unit. I cannot think of any adjustment that you can do to eliminate a skip sound.

No Sound.....

Do you have the speakers connected properly? If Yes check it with a 1,5 Volts batery to hear a click sound at your speakers... You will find the speaker cables behind the cd player.
