    Default popping noises coming from everywhere

    1997 Toyota Tacoma

    Source: Eclipse cd5000 (what a piece)
    Amp: Polk Audio 500.4
    Comps: Polk Audio SR6500


    Recently my stereo system has developed a popping/thumping noise that is affected by changing volume, changing stations, changing cd's, turning power on and off,etc.

    I was in the market to buy a new amp so I tolerated this pop, whincing all the time, til I got my new amplifier.

    After wiring up the new amp the pop was reduced somewhat but it still persisted.

    Next I changed my rca cables thinking one could have been pinched or something and narrowed the problem to the right side of my cd player, I think.

    I say this because I moved the popping from the right side all the time to left side all the time by swapping the rca's at the amp's input.


    My question: Is my problem definitely in the output of the cd player?


    Could I have a grounding issue?

    Anything I didn't think of?

    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like a source issue to me.

    thanks for the feedback.

    sounds like a good excuse to replace that horrible thing

    Default gain pot.

    i just touched the gain to adjust my mids down a little and intermittently my sound doubled in volume

    could this be a grounding issue in the signal chain?

    wish I had more time to troubleshoot this but everything is just gonna be turned off for now

    Take the amp to an audio shop, most will test them for about $15-$20.

    Man I know, at least the voices went away for now though. I couldn't get a word in edgewise
