Speakers upgrade replacement 2016


Replaced my Trail Hawks 6 speakers with 4 kicker KS 6x9 and kicker KS amp. You'll need 6x9 3/4" offset ring if you use the KS series in front. After tweaking the amp it now sounds awesome. Amp gain is at 1, lol, plenty of room to also drive a pair of 3.5" in dash.

PROBLEM:
Jeeps audio start /stop system creates a popping sound from speakers now. When it shuts off voltage is dropped to 6v. When it starts voltage jumps to 15v which pops the speakers. It sucks! Install dude and I and all our contacts couldn't figure out a fix. [B]Any help would be appreciated !!!!!!!

FUTURE PLANS:
I plan to add cheap OEM sub. The sub and trim panel is one piece (part#5091212) and I was qouted $180. Although it's cheap it'll work if not pushed. The kickers add a good deal of bass already. I'll add 3.5 in dash with cut-off around 100 sent to sub. The amp can easily push the dash paired of front doors. I'll add a small cheap mono amp for sub.

The voltage dropping to 6V seems like an electrical system malfunction. It takes either a bad battery or an excessively high current drain to bring a healthy battery all the way down to 6V - whether or not the engine is running. Perhaps the referenced 6V is being measured at the at the amp V+. If so, the wiring V+ wiring to the amp could be undersized or compromised; check the chassis ground to the amp while you're at it. Also, a spike to 15V sounds high as charging voltages are usually in the 14V range.

Have the electrical system checked out by a competent mechanic.

Re: Speakers upgrade replacement 2016

Also, the ESS system includes significant voltage stabilization circuits. For example, notice the exterior lamps/LEDs do not change in intensity when ESS stops and starts the engine. Is your amp voltage stabilized?

Stabilized? I haven't added anything yet. Think of adding a line filter/chocker...
