    help! Speakers making weird noise

    So i just bought a 4-channel amp to power my door speakers and started hooking everything up. I hooked up the first speaker and it sounded great. Then i hooked up the second one and it starteed making this scraggly noise as soon as i turn my car on (even before there is music playing) So i decided to unplug it and work on it but now both speakers are doing it. Can anyone help me?

    make sure your ground on the amp isn't loose and make sure your speaker connections aren't touching anything but themselves.
    I assume it's that boss amp?
    Make sure all your connections on the amp are secure and not frayed also.
    Further explain what a "scraggly" noise is?
    a whiny sound?
    a buzz?
    or a weird popping odd sound that doesn't make sense at all.

    yeah a thud thud thud is likely the ground connection
    do two things
    mak sure your ground is tight and secure to BARE metal.
    and then put a multimeter on the battery then put it on the amp and see if you have voltage drop to make sure you have a good ground.

    Re: help! Speakers making weird noise

    well if your getting a pop when you turn on, or turn off. I have yet to remember what that is, we talked about it in anothr forum but I can't find the thread.
    But if its like a weird thing an the speakers motor in and out atrandom it's likely ground.
    always start with your ground and power connections making sure they are secure, good, and clean.
    Then if the problem persists you want to isolate where the issue is coming from.

    No, its not startup pop. It only occurs at certain frequencies & out of 1 driver. I was thinking it maybe a driver or x-over defect.

    Re: help! Speakers making weird noise

    i assume your runnng off a amp. try this. try switching the leftand right channels on the amp so that the speakers are powered off a different side. If the problem moves to the other driver, you know its not a problem with the driver and its that channel on the amp giving you trouble and if it stays on the same side, you know its somewhere after the amp, so wiring or xover or driver problem

    Re: help! Speakers making weird noise

    Yep, will do. I'm doubtful its the amp, but its easy enough 2 check. After that I'm gonna swap x-overs & see if the issue moves w/ it. Either way I'm thinking somethings gonna be returned under warranty. Thanks 4 the help, I was just kinda hoping there was some kind of issue that could be resolved quickly/easily.

    One thing I've learned. Nothing is the easy fix lol.
    That's why I still have no passenger seat or carpet or panels on half my car.
    Cause i'm to lazy to deal with stuff, and there's no easy fixes.
