No induced ground leakeages or EMI/RFI in the input, minimal impedance noise source for internal noise evaluation.
If any noise remain, you can suspect some internal oscillation problem in the amp itself or noise from the psu.

Just make sure you short it at the ends of the input leads or right at the connector - don't use a long jump lead, as it will form a great loop antenna (remember those vertical hula hoops on top of airplanes in old pics?):

Ok, here a couple pictures of the monoblocks I built, hopefully somebody can spot something wrong. Both amps make the same pop and hiss noise.

Speaker and PSU cable should be as far from each other as possible.

when you say power supply are you referring to my 120V AC or the multiwire cable that joins the smps to the amp?

Ok I rechecked the dc offset stuff, looks like you have to let the amp sit for about 10 minutes since the dc on the input will slowly come down as it warms up.

Next I shorted the inverted/non inverted input conductors. Tweeter still makes the same very faint "pop" noise when powering up/down but now when it is on there is absolutely no white noise or hissing.

robbbby, whatever they said, try to put a shield between PSU and amp, and shield PSU cables too.
Easy to do just Dirty, for a test, and see if any change.

what is the best way to "shield the cables? Just wrap them in aluminum foil? Does the shield need to be grounded?
