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.

Kenwood KR-V7080 reciever will not play through speakers.I can still plug headphones into the reciever and get audio but not through the speakers. Tested the speakers and they still work.


If the speakers used to switch off when the headphone plug was put in the socket, suspect the socket it goes into as being the trouble. It is clearly not connecting the speakers, when the headphone plug is removed.

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.

Kenwood rx29 reciever protection fault


Check the speaker ohms. If you still have the factory ones they are rated at 2ohms. All new stereos need a 4 ohm speaker. I had the same problem with a different kenwood and all I did was change to a set of kenwood speakers and that fixed the problem

No tv sound through reciever's speakers. How do I hook up?


TV is not customarily a sound source. It is a video destination. Get your TV-related audio to the receiver from the same places the TV gets it - each source device's audio outputs.

No sound coming out of speakers


A quick way to check your speakers is to put the contacts from a 9 volt battery to the positive and negative speaker wires (briefly). You should hear a crackle of some sort if the speakers are functioning. If there is no crackle, speakers are bad / if there is a crackle, your head unit must have a problem.

Linking DVD/CD to Receiver


You use rca cables to hook them up to each other. On the back of your Reciever make sure it is hooked to the cd. There should be speaker outlets in the back of the reciever. You should have suroundsound, Center, left and right speaker ports. I've never seen just 2. Crazy
