This again usually happens to PCs using a VIA chipset, particularly the ones that has a 686B southbridge (KT133(A), Apollo Pro 133A/Z/T chipsets). A major symptom is that the speaker will crackle with static with or without music. Another symptom is that media files like MP3 will skip. Also, in some cases this problem will cause major file corruptions in the hard disk. There are many theories on this problem (do a Google search for that) Initally, some of the motherboard companies have a workaround with a BIOS fix. However, in order for the following to work you have to update to the latest BIOS version as the previous BIOS fixes may conflict with the proper fixes. 
One solution is to update the VIA Hyperion driver to the latest version. This helps in some cases but in some cases does not solve anything. 
Another solution is to use George Breese's unofficial PCI latency patch The stable version is 0.19d but does not support the latest chipsets. 
A third solution is to manually adjust the PCI latency value (if available) from 32 to either 0 or to 64. I don't recommend this unless you know what you are doing. 
In 2003, Creative finally releaased updated drivers for SB Live! and Audigy. The new drivers should solve the above problem for most people.

I have a crackling speaker on the left port of the bass box


The crackling sound on the left port of the bass box, indicates vibrating foreign matters inside it. Just open the box and clear it up. Put the sounds on. Listen if the crackling sound is audible. If the result is ok, then, close the box, and everything is alright..
However, if the result is otherwise, then, it is due to a defective speaker that needs to be replaced.
