What is causing the "geiger counter" sound near the speakers near the left and right ends of the dashboard?

I would suspect that the unit is picking up ignition sparks possible from a lead flashing over. The voltage variations will be picked up by the antenna and comes through as a stop sound. Have it checked out at a radio shop

Today i woke up with my clock beside me and it was making a strange clicking noise. it sounded like a Geiger counter and it keeps doing it once and a while. i really don't think the techs at RCA could fit...

There are two speakers. Disconnect the one at the bottom that looks like a coin with glue on it. As far as I know it does nothing because the alarm and the radio go through the other speaker. Crackling noise solved.

Geiger counter sound from subwoofer

If it's a wireless system, the circuits are drifting off frequency or could be picking up interference from just about anything. If not wireless, you probably have a part (transistor or chip) inside that is developing noise by itself.
