  • kelaro75771 Sep 25, 2008

    when i installed this stereo, i turn the volume up around 17-20( volume tops out at 40)
    ,after a few seconds the speakers started to sound as if there were bare wires touching metal,but there was nothing wrong with any of the wires,i bought new speakers,exchanged stereo for another one and still got the problem.when the fader is only on front or rear theres no problem but when its balanced the problem starts.

It seems you needs more power to maintain the level of good sound.Maybe the maximum volume is 30 - then the mininum is 15 and you can't hear any cracking sound. If you exceed 15 the minimum, as you said starting 17 - 20 you hear crackling sound .Then you reach ,what they called the "cliping level"so much distortion and crackling sound,your stereo too small to accomodate .You must add a power amplifier so crackling will gone and to fit your listening pressure...

Hope it may help you;

If your battery has not got good power it will cut out on loud
or even if the car is running the alternator might be not putting the right charge out
also if it makes weird sounds like a squeeze sound or a cracking sound some thing is earthing out a termanal touching body? a speaker wire cracked or ripped?

Noise could be due to a bad ground and or signal interference ,Check the wiring and check if the ground is connected or maybe a ground lead came loose in your car .....

Check connecting the speakers by the battery manually out of the car and check.

Posted on Sep 21, 2008

  • masterexpert Sep 21, 2008

    you need to check that the output impedance of the stereo and the input impedance of the speakers match. For cars they are normally 6 ohms and they probably already match.

    The next thing you need to check is that the speakers can handle the 45 watt output of the stereo.

    If that's all okay then make sure you have decent wiring between amp and speakers.

    Just as an afterthought the vibrating could be because the speakers aren't in tight enough against the car door...

    thanks.
    feel free for further queries.

  • masterexpert Sep 21, 2008

    is your amp producing more watts than your speakers are rated to handle? are the speakers bolted down firmly and is the ground wire firmly screwed down and the connector firmly crimped to the wire?

That will happen if you have blown the speaker out using it with high volume. Recheck your wires/plugs first.

RADIO CUTS OFF WHEN VOLUME IS TURNED UP


It could be your wiring as well. Sometimes, when speaker wire gets cut and grounded, like your factory wiring to your door speakers or you tap into facrotry speaker wires to add more, the load on your deck increases. When the volume gets to a certain level, it will cut off because of the heat produced to maintain the load.

New car speakers cut out when I turn up the volume.


You just have to check all of the speaker wiring.It's a wire touching somewhere and it will do that till you fix it. What it is is just where the negative wire which is the ground for your spreakers it's touching the positive wire which is know as a power wire.When this happends it lowers the frequency of the volume which will cause the speakers to cut out and volume level to drop.
