Stereo install. Wish me luck

First time doing anything myself in my car... Not mechanically inclined. Putting in a new stereo receiver because my Shaker 500 skips like crazy on all CDs, and I want an aux input. Wish me luck.

Doing a stereo is super easy. Get the right pullers for the factory radio and a good adapter kit for your size stereo and also the right adapters for the factory stereo plugs. It is literally follow directions and plug/play.

Got it working. Get a quick pop in the speakers though when audio starts playing? Any idea what might be causing that? Sounds fine once it plays, just get a pop when the stereo starts to play music.

I don't recall what it is exactly but if you get a 1.5k ohm capacitor and put it on the wire for the amp turn on it will kill it or atleast make it barely noticeable.
