The JJP Startup POP Eliminator device is a simple plug and play solution to prevent that loud POP when you turn on your games. In fact, it eliminiates all noise on startup including whining and hissing. The startup delay time is configurable and is set at 30 seconds delay from the time you turn the game on until the speakers are connected. In general you should not have to change this.
The installation video below shows you where to plug this device in. Make sure you game is turned off, go slow and take pictures before you remove anything.
Without the eliminator installed (turn up the volume), listen for the whine/pop/crack
With the eliminator installed. The small click you hear is the relay closing, it is not over the speakers and is hardly noticable when the backbox is closed up. I can be set/adjusted to happen at any time so it could coincide with the boot being complete, the screen changing, etc.
Are you sick of hearing the loud "POP" when you turn on your JJP games? It's not damaging but it sure is annoying.
What if there was a simple plug and play option to get rid of that popping sound all together? In fact, any whining or other noise from the speakers on startup can be dialed away with this handy device.
Installation is really easy. Simply remove the backglass, unplug and re-plug a few connectors and you are ready to go. Digital readout of the settings on the device tell you how it is performing and lets you configure delay parameters to set the mute timeout for any amount that fits your game's needs.
Right now this device is only plug and play for JJP games as we investigate and make harnesses for other manufacturers.
*Note this will not solve any sort of audio issues during game play. If you have whining, buzzing or other issues you may want to look in to a change out of your ground loop isolator. This are installed from the factory at JJP but seem to be inferior or otherwise not always protect from that DC whine/feedback. A search on Amazon for these will return a top result which has proven to help with whining issues on other games.
