Car speakers pop when on/off new stereo preamp out to Bose amp

My 300zx came with a great Bose sound system. I hooked the preamp output from a new CD player stereo to the existing Bose amp and speakers. There is a loud speaker pop when the preamp out voltage goes to zero, ie. on/off, or change source, or just volume to zero. Is there a device to hook in-line between them or do I have to use the stereo powered output and wire around the Bose amplifier?

Am using lexus E300 1995 model but l will know if l can get the sound systerm to replaced my spoiled one

Yes you can replace your factory oem stereo with an after market stereo or replace it with another oem. I have a 2002 Maxima and I can't stand the BOSE system so I ended up replacing the head unit and added an amp to run my sub. Sounds great and did the install myself. Took me about 3 hours total. Find the head unit your like and see how much a shop would replace it for? Or you can do some research and do it yourself. It really isn't hard as it would seem!!! Since replacing the HU the sound is much much better!!!

Play Ipod thru JVC CD car stereo using RCA cable?

JVC KD-S731R does not have the option of connecting an ipod. The RCA ports on the rear of the unit are a Line-Out. These RCA's only OUTPUT sound. Not an INPUT RCA that you require. The only other method of using an ipod with this stereo is to purchase an FM-Modulator to connect the ipod. Once purchased, you must connect the antenna wire coming from the vehicle to the module, then you must connect the antenna wire coming from the module to the stereo. The other wire will be connected to either a jack or a ipod specific plug depending on the type of modulator used.

No sound from the speakers

The main thing on problems like this are the speakers, either grounded out or the voice coil is bad. Being on the water it is subject to way more moisture. I would suggest disconnecting all the speakers and either tiring them one by one to see if they function or "pop" them with a 9 volt battery.

OR you can cut 1 speaker at a time from the wire harness at the back of the radio to see if the stereo comes back on. (goes into protection mode when a speaker grounds out)

If that all fails then the deck may be done ---- more than likley one of the speakers though.

Alpine stereo car deck installed in place of factory Bose with

What you have been told is correct, these proprietary systems are great for the manufacturer, but when they start to have issues (and they will) they leave you 2 options: pay through the nose to stay original or replace the amps with new ones....the upside of this is aftermarket amps are soooo mugh better than stock that it is lauhgable.

Power is on but no sound in car stereo

First, get a small 9V battery and connect the leads to your speaker wires. You should hear a pop if your speakers are OK. Then I would check the radio itself and make sure all speaker leads are connected correctly. If this does not work, something is up with the output of your radio. If you are using an amp, make sure all connections are good and that RCAs are connected correctly.
