power surge to sub on start up???

this is on my 07 Audi S4. just put a 12" sub in witht he factory system, but everytime i start the car the sub goes full power for like 3 seconds and rumbles like crazy, i have no idea what it is ive never heard of anything like it. the sub is hooked up with the remote wire, 2 audio cables power through a rockford fosgate circuit breaker then to the battery and a solid ground, it only does it on startup? any help would be mich appreciated

your RCA jacks are touching metal or your ground is shorting out ...check all wiring and make sure all is secure and tucked back out of way...
