Speakers are thumping and cracking when powered up...why?

I have a Power Acoustik PTID-8960, have wired up to 4 amps, 1 amp for the front speakers, 1 amp for the mono-subwoofer, 1 amp to the rear deck speakers, and 1 amp to two-subwoofers. When I power up the head unit, the rear deck speakers and two-subwoofers thump and the deck speakers thump and crack............why, and how could I fix this?

You are better off setting your deck speakers amp to a high pass filter setting on the amp. Adjust gains to increase desired bass and clarity. Turn off loud button if you have one, that will distort your deck speakers.

    I would also check to see if you have a speaker grounding out on the car chassis. This will make your speakers crackle.

How to hook up the ground wire the red wire and yellow wire


Usually, wiring schematics or color codes are universal. try these simple color codes:

Red - Positive line (+) - to battery or capacitor
Black - ground (-) - must be attached to the body of the vehicle
Yellow - Ignition switch line

Other white-lined wires paired with solid colored ones are usually for front and rear speakers.

There might also be 2 wires that is labeled "LINE OUT" which goes to the LINE IN of your Power Amplifier.

You can Actually get a Single to Double RCA Splitter for this. I think that Wal-Mart Used to Carry them. If not, Any Stereo Install shop has these and will sell them to you. You Might Try Best Buy also. Their Car Audio Install Guys may have one to sell to you.

Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp


This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
