Hi everyone, I went to this page Same problem as mine w/ a solution, and installed this.

All it did was act as a bypass to the on/off switch, now it's always on. >:(

So, does anyone have a solution to popping noise when shutting down a SS amp?

Here's the schematic:


Does your amp switch both sides of the line like the schematic you linked ? If so, did you install the network on both sides ?

Is your cap(s) X2 rated ?


It's not possible for that mod to make your amp 'always on', so somehow you have made a mistake.
Pictures of how you did it will help.
