Kenwood Head Unit Making a Loud Popping Noise at the Start and Finish of each track
I have recently wired up a Kenwwod head unit to a
clarion 4-channel amp feeding a 12inch clarion sub
and a pair of 6.5inch splits.
My problem is that at
the start and finish of every track, there is a loud popping noise (The track plays the music perfect for
the whole track). I have double checked all the connections
and wiring loom and all seems to be fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My mate had the same problem with his stereo in his case it was power related if u are usin crimp connections or any other form of connection to the speakers or the subs that is not a soldered joint it could be that we had to re wire his system with soldered joints and it worked ok. but other than that it could also be ur wires themselves with power cutting out cos the poppin sounds to me like the power cuttin out or in. other than that i really cant think of anything hopefully that helps

The issue has to be with either the head unit or the external amp that is being fed. Reverse the feed to the amp from the Clarion. If the audio issue now shifts to the other side the problem is with the Clarion. If the issue stays the same then the problem is with the amplifier.
There are dedicated terminals / connection points for "remote" input and output on both the amplifier and head unit. This info usually figures prominently in the manuals of both products. Without knowing the which brand and model head unit and amplifier you have, the info may be incorrect. In the past, many head units made use of Blue or Blue/ White for a remote signal. It was used to control an external amp or automatic antenna. An example is the image below of the wiring of a Kenwood KDC-3011 head unit:
Check your manuals (or Google model numbers) to find yours.
good day. well its a common head unit problem, have you tried to check on the noise filter of the head unit if it is properly connected. if its not then connect it for it maybe the reason your having the annoying noise. hope this helps. have a nice day
Well, I have just had the same problem with the same model.
I had a look inside and it turned out in my case that the din socket that connects the multichanger to the head unit had one pin that had failed, (the power 12V).
I had to go through every pin, one by one and found that the 12V was present on the lead coming from the head unit, but was not making its way to the board. It had failed within the socket surprisingly.
So I wired in a new, fused 12V feed to the circuit board, and hey presto, everything came back to life!
I thought I would just add this in case anyone ever searches for this problem in the future.
Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output.
Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.
