I just finished making my first DIY subwoofer. It is a Dayton Titanic 15in and a Dayton 1000w plate amp, but when I want to turn the amp on or off the sub jumps forward and a loud pop occurs, how do I fix this?

Pretty sure that's normal with Dayton Amps. Other than turning the gain all the way down before you turn it back on, I don't think you can stop it. Why not just leave it on?

There IS a way to solve this, but you may not like the solution.
You need to wire a switch on one of the output leads and expose it on the outside of the sub, flip it to off, power it on, flip it on; problem solved. redface.gif
Trying the gain thing might also work. Remind me to never buy a Dayton amp... eek.gif

OK. I usually do turn the gain all the way down before I shut it off. But I'm alright with the noise as long as it doesn't damage my subwoofer, does it?

Why not just leave it in auto setting? 

 

Bottom line IMO, Its not "good" for the sub to pop like that...  Having said that, the titanic is a very well built driver and prob wont be affected.  Leaving it "on" or in "auto" would be better for the sub.

 

Contact Dayton and see if this is normal operation, most well built subs have soft start circuits which limit or eliminate this.....


Don't waste time reading signatures.....

The thing is that it gets moved around a lot, its part of a setup for our swim team parties, its kind of like a DJ stand, and i gets turned on, off, and unplugged a lot. Because it is always moving house to house.

Ahh ok, that makes sense. Yeah, I would do as Nick suggested and contact Dayton to see if they have a solution.

It's not going to do anything bad, don't worry about it. I had the same amp and the same driver, the thump is annoying but no damage is going to come from it.
