Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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.
