loud noise coming from sub after car turned off??

whenever my gf turns off her car, there is a loud noise that comes from the sub. it's a 12" JL sub and i did all the wiring but can't figure it out. it's hooked up to the stock deck with an rca adapter. the last time it happened i changed the ground for the amp and it went away for a little while but it came back now and it's wired exactly how my truck is but my truck doesn't do this. anyone had this problem before?

this happens with a lot of stereos. its just your sub popping from the power being turned off from your amp. i wouldnt worry too much.

That is a type of ground noise. What kind of amp are you using and also on the high to low converter there is a brown ground wire comming out of it. If you havn't grounded that wire you might wan't to try that. I came across this noise alot in my 9 years of installing and found it most popular with either lower brand stereo's or amps.

Re: loud noise coming from sub after car turned off??

yesterday i turned on the car and the sub just started to blast and it wouldn't turn off...and the radio wasn't even on. so i had to disconnect it. it's connected to the stock deck with an rca adapter. do i have to ground that? i'm going to try and sand down the point where i grounded the amp better.

Re: loud noise coming from sub after car turned off??

no, I'm not sure what it is but my buddy's car has the same problem. I rag on him all the time about it. You turn off the factory unit, and the subs just go apeshit. Like one long continous hum. It's funny

The very bottom item is a pop stopper and should solve the problem. I'm sure other places sell them.

Re: loud noise coming from sub after car turned off??

is that pop you're talking about really just a pop (like a short burst)? because the noise i'm hearing is kinda long. the last time it happend it went loud and didn't stop so i disconnected the subs.

Look at the link I posted above. The last item on the page is a "pop stopper" and it delays the amp turn on/off so you shouldn't hear it anymore.

Re: loud noise coming from sub after car turned off??

what it is is a feedback through the rca's when u turn off ur radio, ur amp didnt turn off.. its actually stil processing the signal. unfortunately i've yet to find a good way around this. we had a customer come back and complain about this but unfortunately there was nothing we could do to correct it.. we tried changing where we go the amp turn on to using a different LOC and it was even grounded.. so in short, just dont turn ur radio off

The high to low converter needs to be grounded. Its the brown wire on the converter. That noise is feed back.

Yeah, but the car don't have to be shut off. When the entire car is off it don't, but when it's on and he turns the HU off they go crazy, lol

I have same problem, and still cant figure it out. I may try a ground loop isolator and see if that works.

Re: loud noise coming from sub after car turned off??

It won't harm your subs unless the noise is much louder than normal. Yeah its annoying, but if your amp has a 'gain' knob, you can turn that down everytime before you turn off your car, and it won't happen. I run 2 12' p2's and the noise is so loud sometime it vibrates the hair on my goatee, but its normally that loud anyway
