Right click the speaker icon on the taskbar
Click "Playback Devices"
You should get a screen titled "Sound"
Click the communication tab
There is a set of radio buttons titled: "When windows detects communication activity:"
Select the "Do Nothing" option.
Edit: The issue was present for me if the mic was on or not. A little concerning to say the least...
This fixed the issue for me. Hope it helps someone else.
I am having the same problem with mine. Tried re-installing the sound drivers but that didn't make a difference. Took out all the screws in back to see if there was a loose wire, but couldn't get the center speaker apart....

There should be a series of buttons marked A. B and C. A is for the living room, B is usually for the bedroom and C is outside. If it is a carstereo type system you will need to go into the setup mode where you will find the balance and fade. Balance left and right to see if it turns off the outside. If is does not then fade front or back and see if it turns it off.
The most likely problem is a bad ground. The ground wire should be solidly connected to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location. If it is loose, it could cause fading in and out. Other than that, check all of your speaker leads and the leads from the head unit. It is possible that you have a shorted speaker or speaker wire. Check this by unhooking these leads one at a time and then playing a little bit of music, and seeing if the fading stops. However, I will say again, the most likely problem is a bad ground.
It may be the speed volume is enabled on your radio, does it fade out when you start to come to a stop? Some vehicles have a speed volume setting in their radios in which the radio raises and lowers the volume during driving conditions, like when your comming to a stop, the volume will automatically lower and during faster driving speeds will rise to a higher volume.
have you got valves fitted to the amp as they can cause fading if old >damaged >not fittted properly also check the speaker connects and try playing half volume the output should be steady.. you say its handmade if you made it pull out the amp board and check your soldering joints look to see fi there is any that need resoldering as they may be getting hot and causing a resistor to fade..
Since this problem just started, I would first check to make sure there is nothing stuck inside the mic's port. Also, if you have a fan on in the room, that can also cause your speaker to fade in volume.
I say both of these because if the phone thinks you're saying something, your speaker will fade in volume. Whether you're talking or it's just air noise, the volume will fade.
Check to be sure there are no speaker wires touching ground, and that the wires are connected in phase to the head unit.

The symptoms you are relaying definately sound like an internal amplifier problem. It is fading in and out for a reason - usually due to heat.
Have you had the radio bench tested (seperate from the car) to eliminate the car as being the culprit?
Since the radio was run with damaged speakers originally, the output or amplifier power supply on the amplifier may be bad.
As an alternative to repairing, I would suggest investing in a small 2 channel amplifier to power the speakers.
The radios claim 50W per channel, but in reality give 12-15W RMS power.
A dedicated amplifier with built in crossovers and gain adjustments will prolong the life of your speakers and add to the tonal qualities of your new speakers. Instead of turning up the volume on the head Unit, and sending out a distorted signal that will blow your speakers, an amplifier will give more CLEAN power to them, so it will be louder at a lower volume setting.
This will bypass the internal amplifier on the radio, and send a Low Level signal ONLY thru a set of RCA cables.
