#1. Dont ground the chassis of the amp, that will cause a path for a possible ground loop

#2. Check the length of your ground wire. I have seen this static sort of pop from a the amped speakers when the ground is either to long or inadiquate. Try for less then 2".

#3. Check the voltage drop between your Negitive battery terminal and the ground point. It should be no higher then 1v.

What is the amp? What type of power are we dealing with here?

    I'll check the voltage drop and shorten the ground wire in the morning; the ground is about 16" long.  The amp is a basic sony 1200 watt amp.  Thx for the pointers..............

Not sure why some other guys haven't replied here but I coulda sworn there was a topic in this or general discussion within the past month concerning popping. Might be worth searching the forum.

On a side note, I don't know if Jay is entirely getting what John is saying... Could be mistaken, just seems to be some miscommunication.
