what causes that to happen? The amp pushing the sub is wired directly to my 3rd battery.

Sounds like the amp is cycling on/off.

The amp might be wired but the turn on led is wired through the ignition. Try to bypass that first.

I am pretty sure through all of my stereo knowledge that the remote lead eventually has to come from the head unit even if you tap into several amps, thus it is connected with a key turn when the power hits the head unit.

Like I said.....pull the turn on lead and tap it to the ground. This will turn the amps on and keep them on (only for testing purposes) and see if they pop again.

Check it on the head unit also cause that could be cycling also.

So is this a bad thing?? My sub does the same exact thing since I put in my new HU, didn't do it before with the same amp and sub.

if its bad on the electronics what is the solution?

you might have a blown cap in the amp.. very common if you didnt drain it when you put the fuse in

It is just more annoying than bad. Some may say that the popping over time will take a toll on your sub, but I have had vehicles that popped and the systems lasted without any problems. One thing you can do to minimize is make sure that your volume is low upon starting.
