When this happend to my Saab 2003 9-3 it was the amp that was faulty. It is below the drivers seat and when getting in/out of my car water/snow must have got on it and blew it out. When I removed it there was corosion and rust on it-in my opinion it is a bad spot for a amp. Dealer quoted me $1300 to replace. I am currently looking for less expensive options. I did discover a website www.saabradio.com that may be of help to you.
Best of Luck,

What you were hearing is internal feedback (like microphone feedback but electronic) causing the output section to act as a power oscillator which can sometimes occur additionally at ultrasonic frequencies along with those you heard and consequently fry the output section.
The power output section is normally in modular form and not too tough or expensive to replace but I think it is the victim, not the cause which can happen anywhere in the audio path either by lousy design or the degradation of electrolytic capacitors in the audio path.
Depending on the reserve power capability of the speakers installed, they may also be damaged.
Unfortunately, I think the labor cost would be excessive and the repair perhaps not even permanent; replace it yourself or go shopping for a new system.
