Static thru speakers at mid-high volume all the time

I just installed this in my 79 Toyota Corona. The car is prewired for four speakers. I have the two front speakers installed, and the head unit. The speakers share a common ground, and the head unit has its own. I'm getting a terrible static when I turn up the volume either with the tuner or iPod. Help!

Re: Static thru speakers at mid-high volume all the time

Your head unit may not have a common ground for the speakers. If you have two wires for each speaker coming from the head unit, rewire the speakers for a floating ground, that means two wires per speaker, or use a floating ground adaptor. These radios now a days are NOT like the radios in the hay days of care audio. If you already did not cause any damage to your unit, you certainly will if you continue to use it the way it is hooked up now. Good Luck

By attaching amplifier with speakers and dont attach woofer there is increase in volume or not? my audiio system model no. KDR-506AND MY SPEAKER MODEL NO. 6922

No, it night seem like it because there will not be any low fequency noise from the sub to match. But, if your bass overpowers the rest of the sound you will need to put an external amp to your mids/tweets

Need to know

I would recommend running a four channel amplifier using component speakers up front and co-axial speakers in the rear. You can add more speakers up front, but it depends on what you're trying to accomplish in your car. Do you want it louder? Do you want it clearer? Any system will benefit from an amplifier. More power to your speakers will give you better sound because you'll have more accurate control over the speaker cone. This extra power will result in better clarity, not only at high volume, but low volume too.

Unti shuts off at high volumes

You might have a damaged speaker which shorts out at high volume. Disconnect one speaker at a time and crank it to find the one that causes the problem.
