View Full Version : speaker crachling after turning off

09-03-2006, 11:20 PM
just got some kappa coaxils installed today and im running them off a 4 chanel amp. only one of the speakers makes this noise and its like a popping crackling sound after i turn of the HU or turn of off the truck. the speaker sounds fine and all so i dont know what it could be, please help me!

and also one random question, when i listen to the radio at a certain volume, then switch to a cd at the same volume, the cd is louder and i was wondering if more watts are being pushed to the speakers with the cd, or if it is more straining on the speakers with the cd playing then with the radio playing at the same volume.

i know i kinda went another way with this thread but i really need help with the popping crackling sound,


edit- the kappas are not components but they do have a crossover if that matters

its the quality differance. radio station dont put out the best quaility its prett poor to me IMO, but the new hidef sound that some broadcast is suppose to be excelant with the right equipment. CD quaility is if its pirated its around 192kbps and if its a pressed cd its 320kbps

what kinda HU?. maybe when you shut off HU it gives an extra power to "drain" it from the HU
