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

Trying to put a Clarion PF3494 into a 2001 Subaru Outback, but can't find ISO adapter for connectors on PF3494

It sounds like you are trying to install a Clarion PF3494 head unit into a 2001 Subaru Outback and you have run into compatibility issues. The Aerpro APP8CLA4 adapter you bought does not seem to fit your head unit.
In this situation, you have a few options:
  1. Look for a custom installation kit: Some car audio retailers offer custom installation kits specifically designed for your make and model of car. You may be able to find a kit that includes the necessary wiring harness and adapter for the Clarion PF3494.
  2. Check the Clarion website: Clarion may have information on their website about the wiring harness and adapter required for your specific head unit and vehicle.
  3. Contact a professional installer: A professional car audio installer may be able to help you find the correct wiring harness and adapter for your head unit and vehicle, or they may be able to custom build the necessary wiring for you.
I recommend contacting a professional installer if you do not feel confident wiring the plugs yourself, as incorrect wiring can cause damage to your head unit and vehicle.
If you can provide the specific information about the pins and connections of the Clarion PF3494, I may be able to assist you further.

My clarion dc 628 cd 6 disc changer will not switch on

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.

Rampage amplifier

The amp is supposed to turn on and off with the head unit. The remote wire on the amp should be connected t othe amp control/power antenna wire of the head unit.

The pop should go away when the remote is being switched on with the head unit.

If the amp is staying on with the key removed, it will drain your battery. You need to re-wire it so you don't get stranded.

Audio Output problems

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.
