Car audio crackles and thuds when off

My car audio system has started to crackle out of all of the speakers with no pattern to when it happens. it doesnt matter weather the cd player is selected or the radio the crackle is still there. even when the head unit is turned off the crackle noise is still there. the only way to stop is is to turn the ignition off or take the fuses out of the head unit or the fuse to the amp. the amp is bmw fitted. the audio equipment is Digital Power SoundModul and is a rerofit kit for the bmw mini
Thanks
Tim

1994 toyota corolla speaker crackle


Check all the connectors going to the radio and the speaker that is acting up. Also check the radio antenna ground if this happens when the just the radio is playing. Unplug them and plug them back in a few times, there may be a corrosion problem.

I tried to install an aftermarket 6 1/2" speaker


possible reasons:

Impedance mismatch
wiring is grounding out on frame/metal
speaker isn't OEM and is slightly "pinched" thus causing cone distortion

One of these three will be your issue.

Also, you may remove the speaker and leave it hanging with the wires attached. Knowing that no wiring is shorted and nothing is disturbing the cone, try running your stereo. Same crackling problem? It may be an impedance issue or you reversed the polarity on your speaker.

It will require some work but the solution is there if it was working before.

Are your speakers factory? Sometimes the wires start corroding from moistures or from not being covered well. If you can or know someone who can, you may try checking the wires to the speakers/radio. If they are corroding, they may be shorting out.

I've had my '03 Tib's BCM replaced 3 times now. If you have the chip-in-key factory security feature, you can't use a second-hand BCM because it's programmed to your specific key.

I'm not aware of any cases where the BCM caused the speakers to crackle, but the parking light thing definitely sounds like the BCM.
