Question about Sony CDX-M630 CD Player
Left speaker gives out garbled sound intermitently ("crumpled paper" sound). Just had new head unit installed. Stereo installer thought the new HU would solve the problem. Seemed ok, then as soon as the road isn't smooth, old crumpled. Installer also said speakers are in good shape.
I had this unit installed as a present. I know that this problem existed with the old HU. The owner tried to fix previously without luck...but they didn't have the tools I notice your other mentioning (testers, etc.).
I don't know anything about car audio, so I guess I'm looking for the right questions to ask the installer.
The easiest thing to have done is to re-wire the left speaker. Are the speakers original equipment? if so, are they amplified? The door grill over the speaker would say "bose" or "infinity" or "JBL" etc. If the speakers are factory, replace them with an efficient pair of aftermarket speakers and have the wiring replaced. Hope this helps

If it's not the head unit, and it's not the speaker, then it must be a problem with the wire going to the speaker. When you hit a bump, the wire shorts or opens intermittently causing the faulty sound. Some insulation could have rubbed off. There could be a bad pin in a connector. The wire could have some broken strands. It could have become pinched against something sharp.
The good news is, it's really an easy fix. Just have your installer make sure that the sound is OK at the wiring harness itself, and run a new wire from there to the speaker.
Hope this helps.
