Im going to assume you have brought apropriate speakers for your deck/amp...
Is it one speaker or all speakers ? (fade/balance to isolate and try each speaker)
You have wired it all with correct polarity ?
How close are the speaker leads to the power leads ?
Any chance your new leads are shorting somewhere on the chassis ?
Hey mate, the speakers and head unit are about as cheap as I could get, so that could be the cause - however I don't know much about speakers and I have no idea what the polarity means?
It's both speakers, it also happened to the older speakers once this head deck went in (guessing its the head unit), the speaker leads are just next to the power lead (which is normal I thought, since they're all jammed in together?), as for shorting out, I don't "think" so, I've checked everything I can and everything is taped up and should be okay.
I've really got NFI what the problem is, initially I thought it was a bad earth, but I've rectified that and it made no difference - with the new speakers I can play it a little louder before it crackles, but they still crackle.
Got me stumped.
