Hi guys
When I start my engine up, about 3-5 seconds later I get a massive thump in one (I think it's only 1) of my subs. It's fine after that and works perfectly. Has this happened to anyone before?

Cheers
Mike

one of these might help you:

eBay item: 390102477564

I just fitted two of these, one for the RCA lead doing the front speakers and one for the RCA lead doing the back, I had a bit of noise through the speakers, fitted these suppressors and they've been great since :)

(But also try to find a better earth, in mine I drilled the body work and screwed the lead straight onto the bodywork)

for £3.75 it's worth trying, like I said I know have no noise from my speakers at all, I've just ordered another one for the subwoofer, definately worth the money

noise supressors filter top end noise, not bass tones, pops are caused by power issues, not by interference.. the device will not work for this, they are to combat floor noise or interference caused by cheap cabling.
