I just had new faucets installed. When we turn the faucets on quickly, there is a clunking sound at about 1/4 turn. When we turn them on vey slow, there is not clunking sound.

There may be some debris or a tiny pebble or a blob of solder trapped in the pipe. If you are lucky it will come out if you disassemble the faucet as much as possible from the outside and then turn the water on full blast for a second or two.
