    Hi, I have a Spector Euro 5 (EMG BQC) I think that I may have a problem with the input jack...now and then I get some loud pops. The EMG BQC system is only 2 years old and the EMG DC/CS pickups in the bass are new too, this is why I think its the input jack. BUT.... I also get a crackling sound now and then from switching pickups too, so do the pots needed cleaned and may this be why I get popping?

    Thanks

    No idea, try the Spector Club forum, might be someone there with an idea.

    sounds like the jack, could be dirty or need replacing. I believe their nutrik jacks. A 90 deg cable end helps take stress off the jack and helps it last. Guys in the club can help with the exact jack if you need a new one.

    It's an OUTPUT jack.
