What is the technical reason for the amplification not kicking in straight away with the ignition?
On the whole though, great system.. and for the price i got it at (forum group buy) an absolute steal! Would do it again in a heart beat.
Only speculation here but on my aftermarket system when it was already powered and you went to say, start the car engine it would send a load of noise through the speakers which I'm sure was damaging them. Could be that there's a deliberate delay on startup to avoid this?
