Speakers "click/crack" when amplifier is turned on.

I just bought a couple of Pioneer amps recently and installed one of them. Previously I had a POS Audioline amp installed running my front speakers. Now one of the Pioneer amps has taken over that. Sound quality is four times better, but I have one annoying, niggling problem: whenever I start the car (turn on the stereo) the speakers "click". The same happens when I turn the stereo off. Dunno why the hell this is happening, anyone know why or have a solution to the problem?

Help will be much appreciated.

It's just a spike in power - some head units/amps delay this so that you don't get so much (or none) of it, others don't. Mine does the same thing - at least I know the radio is going off when the ignition is turned off!

So it's a good thing!? Is there anyway you can stop it making the "cracking" noise though?

Cheers.

No, it's not necessarily a good thing - you could try a relay coming off the amp remote wire from the stereo to the amp, but I have no idea if this would actually work.

RMyers might be able to help you out - maybe pm him?

It's surprising that the Pioneer amp does it, yet my $100 Audioline amp didn't... Yeah I'll give him a PM.

thats common with anything mate...my headunit although its a cheap crap temporary one clicks on and off with ignition...even home audio amps can do it...i spose it depends on the particular item...but its not neccessarily bad unless its actually a big current surge through the speakers...i had an amp once upon a time that when you flicked it on the speaker cones would move dramatically with a current surge...i soon stopped using it!

Re: Speakers "click/crack" when amplifier is turned on.

It won't damage your speakers at all, it's more of a luxury than anything not to have your speakers click when turning or or off your system.

Most amps, and I would of thought Pioneer, have "softstart" muting to prevent the click... Pioneer aren't overly renouned for their amps, but still, it's disapointing that they don't have this feature.
