    am i close to blowing my speakers?

    today i noticed this weird pop sound coming from my speakers. its the first time ive heard this and im not sure what it is. does it mean that they are about to blow up or is it just bad wiring?
    any help will be greatly appreciated

    Re: am i close to blowing my speakers?

    My kenwood was making a snap crackle pop sort of sound too when i had installed tweeters. turns out, kenwoods are very sensitive to unbalanced impedance loads. if the tweeters are wired to the stereo's speaker outs, try unhooking them, and while the stereo is in standby mode, turn off the built in amplifier. its not needed for the preamps.

    you could also check each speaker with a multimeter to see if the coils are in tact, and make sure that all speakers are in phase with eachother (positive and negative are where they belong, assuming they are single voice coil.)

    its impossible to say by what he has said so far.. you have no idea what kind of pop, how often, or when it happens..

    not one at a time as they don't sell em like that but in pairs yes.. but not sure they are blown yet so lets figure this out

    when is the popping happening..
    constantly while playing music, randomly throughout music, when turning on/off the car?
    what kind of popping is it? a single pop like a quick mic tap, real fast popping like someone dropped a mic?
    frequency.. Is it a high frequency pop(almost like a crackle), or is it a low pop?
    is it coming from multiple speakers or just one? is it coming from the speaker and tweeter in the sets or just one of them?

    just a couple questions.. please answer them to help figure this out... I have a few more follow up questions and will ask them after you answer

    That's my assumption, and I said "MAY HAVE A BLOWN SPEAKER" hence that may doesn't mean 100% sure...

    Re: am i close to blowing my speakers?

    thank you. ok i just came inside from messing with my system and the popping sound happens just randomly really not even on high or low sounds it just happens but not constantly or when turning off/on the car. its a single pop like sound like you said, not a real fast popping sound. it gets lower and higher sometimes as the volume goes up. and im guessing its coming from the front speakers or tweeters according to my ears. i mean i dont know if its the speakers or my tweeters. hopefuly its my tweeters because i really dont want to replace my jl speakers. oh and also when i try to check my gains and stuff through my kenwood head unit it would turn it self off by just clicking on the button but i would still have my music playing from my iphone. i couldnt really get to the sound menu without it turning off by it self. if you need any more information let me know.
