Static noise from car stereo

My car stereo makes a static noise. i have to push it in or wiggle the stereo around and it sometimes stops and sounds good. but if i turn on my car or drive over a bumpy area the stereo starts to make loud static noise again. one person told me that because its a detachable face stereo that its not making proper connection. could that be it or something else?

    so it has nothing to do with the stereo itself? just change out the speakers that are most likely to be blown. ok thanks i will look into that.

I had a static/hiss sound coming from one speaker on my Sony head unit. The stereo was brand new and had just installed it. The stereo that it replaced had no static. Turns out it was the input setting on the separate amplifier being too high. The stereo has 4 volt pre-amp outputs.

Stereo sounds stops but stereo stays on

This is due to a short in one of the speakers Or a blown speaker making it short out and stereo will stopped outputting any sound to prevent damage to the stereo.

Subwoofer makes a loud bass machine gun noise when powered up

Well, I have the same problem and I would think it has something to do with the RCA-connections. If I power up my head unit while I have my main fuse for the amp's removed and then replace the fuse as the head unit is already playing music (thus putting out a current through the RCA-connections) it works just fine. But if I just power up my stereo with the fuse in, my subs go all crazy. I guess it has something to do with disruptions in the rca cable. Maybe they are drawn too close to some power cables or speaker cables? Good luck!

Niosy axilary input

Sounds like what you are experiencing is feedback. Go to any local audio store and ask for a ground loop isolator. It is in lehmens terms a noise filter. Basically it is a go between your device and input via RCA. See if this takes care of the problem. Good luck
