    Icon32 my 13w7 pops? how?

    ok i just got a 13w7, powered by a jl 1000/1 amp, and it is in a custom built ported jl box i bought from limitkid7. well when i crank up the volume my subs pops on certain frequencies...so basically it'll hit good on certain notes, and on one note it'll pop. I even turned the gain all the way down and the boost. but then it doesnt sound as good....so i give it a little boost +2 db. and when i crank it up it does it again....whats wrong? p.s. the speaker wire and power cable ground wire and remote wire arent fasted in the amp all the way, its kind of jammed in there at the moment. could that be it?

    That could be it, the car could be shaking them causing them to tap the connection, it happens then you hook up a wire loose straght up to a terminal on a speaker, try tightening those up and then try again..

    Is that it? My friend has a 12w3v2 in a custom ported box and it does the same popping nonsense, cant figure out why...it's powered by a RF

    what's the ported enclosure tuned too, and do you have the SSF or what's the lowpass set on?

    Re: my 13w7 pops? how?

    Subs can also pop when you clip the amp or overdrive the suspension on the sub. They also pop if you have them wired below the amp's stability, if you have that 13W7 wired to a .75 ohm load instead of 3 ohms then you can have a severe pop as well. The bass boost on that amp is also an easy way to make the subs pop. But I would first off make sure the sub is wired in series and not parallel.
