I installed my amp/subs 8 years ago and had my first problem today. I have a Soundstream 200W amp and (2) 10" JL subs. I hear a clicking noise from my amp every time current passes. Also, the green LED indicating current flickers every time current passes through. Everything sounds fine from the subs but the clicking noise worries me. Anyone have a clue on whats wrong with it? Thanks!

Ro, check your speaker wires. Make sure none of them are shorting/cut.
To test your amp, try unhooking all rca input cables. See if it still makes clicking noise. If it does, unhook the speaker wires and then check again.
If it still clicks, then check the voltage on the power wires and remote wire with a DMM.
If the power doesn't fluctuate, and remains around 12v or higher, then you have an amp problem.
