Question 2007 Mustang GT Shaker 500 Subs popping on power-up.

I have just installed a JVC HDR60 in my 07 GT and now my subs pop when ever I turn the key on. Its a little annoying and I don't know if thats bad for the sub or what but I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on what causes this and what would be the right way to fix it. Thanks for any help!

Sounds like RFI radio frequency interference. check your wires make sure none of them are making contact

I used butt connectors and electrical tape so all the wires are covered well. I have ruled that out as a possibilty. Somebody told me that its because I still have to stock amp and I need to put a resistor into my amp control wire. I have no clue...

well I wired a 1.5K Ohm resistor inline to the amp power wire, (blue and white), and that took the pop away!! And it didn't change anything else, it still is as strong as it was! good deal!!!

Your right on installing a resistor... The factory subs have a amp that only need 6 volts to turn on. The JVC is 12 volts so thats why you need the resistor...

I WISH I COULD GET RID OF THE KNOCKING NOISE IN MY FRONT END. I'M TIRED OF SPENDING MONEY ON IT... IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
