Speakers are crackling

I just bought a used kenwood reciever and technics speakers and they are crackling. So I hooked up two different speakers and they also crackle. Could this be the input or reciever is bad? Or what else could it be?

    I tested the reciever out with another set of speakers that I know work and it still crackled. I also tried switching the RCAs to all the outputs and crackles. Tried all of the wire docks still crackles. So the reciever is dead right? Is there any way to fix this? Thank you

This could be caused by one of your speaher wires being shorted out to ground, OR one of the speaker terminals in the doors or rear coming into contact with metal. If you remove the unit and test it with the speakers hooked directly to the back of the unit and they do not crackle, then the unit is fine. If they still crackle - then you either have two diferent sets of bad speakers, Or more than likely the outputs of the kenwood have been damaged by an improper installation in the past.

So if you bought enclosures that are premade AND had the speakers installed, you need to see if there is a cross over network installed in them

You blew the amp. If you were running 4 subwoofers off of a dual channel amp you most likely running them bridged off of two different outputs. You most likely blew the resistor and because it was pushing more power then it could handle. Also when you bridge speakers it brings down the impedance which allows for the more power to course through. Suggestion is to buy a new amp that can handle 4 subs or 2 different amps for both sets.

A couple of things to think about. If the radio is new, then the speakers may be bad. If the radio is not new and purchased from someone else, the radio may be bad. You are making sure the volume is turned up right? You did use a harness when hooking the radio up right? That is something I strongly recommend.

I hooked up a 2-Ohm dual voice coil 800 watt max 12" Kicker CVR subwoofer and 4-Ohm single voice coil 1000 watt max 12" Kenwood KFC subwoofer to 1000 watt Kenwood Ampilifer. After hooking it up, the Kicker...


off the same amp? you have two way different sounding speakers man. you can buy 2 identical speakers from the same company and brand and series and they will play differently every time. you have 2 speakers with nothing in common so you will hear a difference and maybe interference because of the different ohm levels.

Hello i just recently bought alpine speakers for my eclipse 2003


mostly because the subs in the back are probley using more amps than the ones in the front in the front should be used mostly for vocals and your bass in the trun so maybe trying to unhook the ones in the front from the sub and just leave then hooked up to the cd player where you can hear the vocals really good and leave your subs in the back hooked up to the amp

Kenwood 138 and Performance Teknique 752 speaker problem


Hello passionatete,

It sure sounds like the speakers are bad. When I looked these up, the specifications said they are 5 1/4 inch. You should listen to a few different speakers in the size that you require, to see what ones you like best. I'd first make sure of the exact size. Many 5 1/4" speakers have tabs that allow them to be mounted in 6 1/2" openings. The best way to determine which speakers fit is to use the "outfit my car" feature at www.crutchfield.com. They have speakers starting at around $35 per pair. Another good online site for research and for purchase is www.sonicelectronix.com. Sonicelectronix sells speakers starting as low as about $20 per pair.

Kenwood, JVC, Sony, Blaupunkt, and Orion are all excellent speakers for under $30. There's others like Boss, Scosche, Power Acoustik, and Visonik that cost even less. Again, I'd listen first, and then buy.

Hope this helps.

I just bought a KDC MP-235 to put in a 95 camaro with bose amplified speakers. I ordered a amplifier intergration component to reduce the output of the 50 watt per channel head unit as to have better...


Hi,

Yes, the Kenwood KDC MP-235 has two (2) line level outputs (RCA types red & white). However, these outputs internally passed through an electronic crossover/filter making them appropriate for subwoofer amps only.

If your unit is an MP-235CR, then the same outputs would be for the rear amp (not subs) and are full range (unfiltered).

If indeed your unit is an MP-235 and if I may make a suggestion, still connect the Kenwood to four (4) speakers. It would not be technically correct to leave the internal amps operating with no load (speakers) connected. Additionally, you would be getting 200 watts (4 X 50) more to your system (since it is already there).

If your Bose amp & speaker are subs, then no issue, however if the Bose is for a full range of speakers, then only the woofer part would be working efficiently.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
