Car speakers turn on and off randomly and make crackling sound?

Been having a problem with a short in wires . Well I think its a short. First I thought there was something wrong with the factory radio. Well it wasn’t. I bought a new radio and am having the same problem. I’m having a problem with car speaker’s turning on and off randomly. And making an annoying crackling sound. The speakers only turn on and off when the car is in motion. I’d say the speaker’s work only 80% of the time correctly. Then other 20% they are either OFF or making a crackling sound. Then today I noticed that the speaker in my passenger door isn’t working. The question I have is can a short in one-speaker cause the other 3 speakers to turn on, off and crackle like this? The radio itself it not the problem. The radio works fine.

The answer is: "Yes." If your speaker wiring is such that they all share a common ground wire, and that ground wire is shorting out, it can cause all speakers to go silent when it is grounded (shorted). I would check the wiring, and replace any cracked wiring, and if the wiring looks like the shielding is worn, replace all the speaker wiring. Monster cable is the best, but any heavy copper wiring works fine. I often use 110V. appliance wiring to install car stereos.

When i turn the volume up to(17-20) my sound cuts out and my speakers make a cracklin noise.i have bought new speakers and rechecked all wires.my speakers are rated at 50 watts rms and my stereo pumps out...


It seems you needs more power to maintain the level of good sound.Maybe the maximum volume is 30 - then the mininum is 15 and you can't hear any cracking sound. If you exceed 15 the minimum, as you said starting 17 - 20 you hear crackling sound .Then you reach ,what they called the "cliping level"so much distortion and crackling sound,your stereo too small to accomodate .You must add a power amplifier so crackling will gone and to fit your listening pressure...

Hope it may help you;

Crackling and scratching


Your speaker may be blown take out the speaker that is hooked up and attach another one a house speaker would even work, and i bet your speakers are blow if not check the wires and make sure you have them connected properly if not check the wires going to the harness and to the speaker and if not i think the radio is fried you can also take a long speaker wire take radio out the dash and run it to the speaker if it does still the radio is fried take it back before 90 days is up!

Amp crackling noise


Sounds like you could have a blown amp/speaker or you've got a short in your speaker lead. Typically, when there's not enough resistance on a wire is when you start getting the crackling noises.

I installed my eclipse and the only problem im having is when i have the truck key turned forward it sounds good except you cant hear my subs that well and when i start it and turn it up once i get to a...


First off, you need to disconnect your battery immediately.. The reason for the feed back is you have a hot wire touching ground somewhere....probably a large sub speaker cable.....What will happen is the power going from the amp to the speaker or from the head unit to the sub will come into contact with bare metal and feed that current back into the system through the isolated ground. This will either reduce sound, or when the power is high enough, turn from a low hum to a heavy crackle. now if it crackles with the bass, more than likely its in your sub/amp configuration....if its constant or completely random then it could be anywhere in the system. check for bare, broken, or exposed wire.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!

Sound fluxuates,crackling sound samsungTX-R3079WH sound goes up and down automaticly


If the sound FLUCTUATES up & down, try turning off the AutoVolume in the sound menu. You didn't say if it's one or all speakers crackling. Crackling is either a speaker or circuitry issue. Adjust the balance away from the speaker that crackles, if it stops, that speaker is probably "fried". If it still crackles, I'd turn off the speakers and run the sound thru a stereo for the quick, cheap fix. My Samsung (10+ years old to be fair) crackles due to a circuit issue but if I SMACK the left side speaker (behind which is the sound board and side panel connectors) it stops for a while. Maddening. I think I broke it squeezing it into the furniture it's in, pressing on the protruding RCA plugs. Dumb design.

Have a in dash jvc kd-sx750 cds player that won't power on


if you had the speakers hooked up wrong it would just make a crackling sound when it rubs on a surface. if your vehicle has a factory built in amplifier somewhere you may have to hook up the remote turn on wire to the wiring harness to tell it to turn on.
also make sure your illumination and dimmer wire are hooked up correctly if it doesnt display any images on the screen. and if for some reason you think its shutting off because of crossed wires maybe check the ground the batt and the ignition wire ,or the red black and yellow wires. usually when something major like those three wires get crossed it blows fuses in the car taillamp fuse stereo batt fuse ect. check all those .try resetting the deck of the car battery thats all i can think of now.

Crackling and popping sounds in surround sound speakers


Could be your head unit or the connection to the speaker may be bad. Also if the wire to the speakers in your ceiling is bare and touching any ground it would interfere. Start by checking connections by playing something and messing with wires. Listen for a difference. Next check by putting the wires that power those speakers in a known working output and listen for different quality
