Default RE: Brand new Alpine speakers clicking

How long have you played these speakers? I had a similar problem with my brand new Zapcos. I took them to the dealer I got them from and they said it could be that the spider or the suspension of the speaker needs to be broken in. They put it on an amp and ran it for a few seconds and said they need me to install them to verify. I go home and start installing them but before I do I played them again and they sounded fine. Play some music on them, better yet, go to and on the left side you will see something that says "Download Cascade Noise Burn In CD". Once it's downloaded, burn it onto a CD and play it for a few hours at moderate listening levels. It will break in the speakers. After some good break in period see if it still does what it's doing.

You could be overdriving them. The clicking may be the suspension bottoming out. How much power are you running?
