View Full Version : Wierd problem

02-24-2010, 07:17 PM
So I got caught in deep snow 2 days ago and I was rocking back and forth to try and free myself and all of a sudden my music went off and all I heard was a popping sound at equal intervals from one of my back speakers. So since I already had something to deal with I went and disconnected the remote turn on wire from the amp. After I got the car free I started checking all the wiring and everything seemed fine, I reconnect the remote on wire the amp comes on, no audio, 2 seconds later the same popping sound came on But from both back speakers this time and the intervals became shorter and it sounded like a helicopter was in my car. I disconnected the wire again. Also, everytime the popping noise hits the power light on the amp dims just a tad..

Any idea what's wrong here?

Big coincidence!...I think
I don't think the snow underneath your car and the wires inside your car have anything to do with each other. Unless you ran your wires next to your drive shaft. LOL

You'll have to narrow down the problem yourself by swapping in working components. Eliminate your back speakers. Disconnect them and run a pair of properly working ones. If you still hear the noise then grab another amp and hook it up in place of yours. If you still hear the noise then hook up your amp and speakers in question, find a car with a system and park trunk to trunk.
Unhook other car's RCA cable from amp and run it to your amp with speaker. Play music from the other car with your amp powered on. RCA from other car + your amp and speaker and no noise...then you know the problem must be your deck or amp wiring. Amp could be wired right, but with low quality wires, could have broken in the plastic sleeve or at the tips, could be pinched. Also make sure you didn't run the RCA's next to the power wire. That's all that I could think of with out actually working on the car myself. Let me know how this turns out. *wave*

If you replace the whole car and you still hear the sound... its your ears.

rocking could have loosened something or casued trouble in that regard. id check your sources and grounds. once verified check your signal. theres gotta be a break somewhere
