I am running some INFINITY KAPPA 3.5" 32.5cf speakers off of my hu which is a Clarion dxz735 That has 52 watts per channel max. And they are making strange popping or cracling sounds sometimes. they have done this since i first installed them and i dont know what it could be. Could it be my head unit? Or just funky speaker. it does it especially bad on music like disturbed, ect.

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

 
Do you have any kind of high-pass filter on them? If not, it is likely that they are distorting from the bass going to them that they just can't handle. Also because you are running them off the HU that is going to be a source of distortion as well, but I would be leaning toward the bass being the problem.

 
Um, they have the external crossover that came with the speakers but other that that i do not have any filter. what about those little bass blockers would tose be worth a try? what are some other options?

 
yes the bass blockers work... i say this because i had them on my infinity 3.5s //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

 
The 32.5's should have inline passive crossovers that should allow just the certain frequencies to pass to the proper drivers. The bass blockers are fairly inexpensive so it shouldn't kill you to try them. HU power should be suffecient as the wrms rating for the 3.5's is 35 wrms. Good luck. Let us know if they do the trick.

BB= Best Buy

CC= Circuit City

Caps= Don't have a clue

Just let me know when you get them going because i want to get some too. Also how much did you give for them?

Thanks.....

 
I blew my 3.5" Kappas with head unit power, then got a pair of Boston's. Blew one of those too (but they replaced it for free... gotta love Tweeter for that).

I put 75 Hz bass blockers on after that and still blew another one. It's the bass that kills them, and 75 Hz isn't low enough to protct them.

Tweeter replaced the bad one again ...

I now run a 2 ohm resistor in series with them to limit the power. They're only used to raise the sound stage a bit anyway.
