A little more detail. Do you mean speakers are crackling. Most likely blown the factory speakers. These are very cheaply made. And if you play music loud often they will blow easy. Is it completely stock system. If you relaced your stereo with an after market it may be the wrong ohms for the speakers or to much power and you need better quality speakes. If not coming in clearly make sure your antenna is tight and your wire harness are are connected securely. Let me know more details. Do you have infinity sound or not. Any after market components. Or completely stock.

Trying to hook up aftermarket stereo with no factory harness. How can I go about wiring my new stereo wires or my replacement harness (with module) to my car's already existing loose stereo wiring??


Hi Daniel

You need to test & label all the loose wires.

Use a multimeter in Ohms mode to place a tickle of electricity to each speaker wire. you should hear each speaker crackle. (Multimeters only use a 9v battery internally)
Label each pair of wires for speakers.
Their color coding may help. Keep the negative & positive wires to the speakers correct so that the speakers all travel in a forward motion together or you will have distortion from one speaker that is out of phase with the others.
You will also have a permanent +12v line and a Ignition Key +12 volt line.
One keeps the station memory etc when the ignition key is off.

Cheers

2002 Pontiac sunfire front and rear left speakers not working ! Any idea what could be wrong ? I heard there is a factory amp do you know where that would be and if that could be the problem


factory amps are located on the stereo unit itself or in the trunk but only if the car was ordered with premium sound and the possibilities of that car being ordered with premium sound is unlikely. so at the harness in the back of the stereo find the speaker wires and hook up a 9 volt battery to the said speakers that dont work if they crackle then its in the stereo if not its the speakers or wires to speakers with battery hooked up and speakers dont crackle go to speaker and test with a vom and test for 9 volts dc

I have a 2009 Hyundai Elantra, the radio started crackling at about 34,000 miles and unfortunately I did not get it in to them before it reached 36,000 miles while the warranty was still valid. When I...


I would agree that if the sounds becomes clear after a bump and doesn't crackle all the time, that the issue is likely repairable. You are likely dealing with a poor connection. If you have already identified an area which, when struck can clear the problem for a short time, then I would investigate that area further, reach up behind the dash with the stereo on and wiggle the wiring looms until I find the source of the poor connection.
You might wish to pull the stereo forward and check the connectors behind it. Disconnect any wiring looms, only if you have the stereo code handy if there is one. If you can disconnect the wiring loom and spray with electrical cleaner, then even better.

Good luck. And don't replace your stereo just yet!

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.

Hmm ... where is Charles Sheppard when you need him!?! Sorry, I can't help you ... though to answer your question, I imagine the underlying problem was never really fixed. Maybe its a loose/frayed wire issue between your stereo and the speakers. Cheers.

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.

My radio speakers crackle & distort very badly--I've never played them loudly but can bearly stand to listen to radio?? Is there a fix w/o replacement?? Thanks


Blown speakers in a 2006 should not be an issue, especially in a quality vehicle. You may just have a loose connection at the stereo causing the crackling sound. If you are not the cars first owner the previous owner may have been enjoying the bass a little too much and caused damage to the speakers, but I would check the connections first.

99 camery stereo works but no sound was making crackling sounds in front door speaker when you would open or cloe the door the sound would go off and on now nothing the stereo has no amplafire


Sounds like they took on water in the voice coils and are shot. Pull the speaker out of the door (not to bad) and give the cone a little push if it makes noise it's shot.

2002 Chrysler Town & Country - Driver Front Dash Speaker Buzzes


The first thing I would do is pull the stereo out of the dash and unplug it . If the buzzing stops the stereo is bad get a new stereo. Its not hard to remove the stereo. Right above the cup holder there is a small cover you need a very small screwdriver to remove it . Under that is a few screws take those out then grab the plastic cover that runs around the stereo and pull towards the back window it simply pops off (No screws) After you remove that cover you will see 4 phillips head screws that hold the stereo in remove them. Last slide out the stereo there will be 1 plug with alot of wires that is the power and speakers . Unplug it . The other round plug is the FM antenna
