why are my speakers crackling when i turn my music up?

Asked by Jan 26, 2015 at 10:22 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2001 ext cab ls chevy s10. I bought
my truck a couple months ago
thinking the front speakers were just
blown because they crackled when I
turned the music up to a certain
point. so I ordered a couple of 4x6
kickers for the dash because that's
the speakers that I thought were
blown... I replaced the speakers and
the head unit. the new wiring I did
myself was done right. yet still the
popping and crackling... if I change
some audio settings such as the mid,
bass, and treble I can turn it up a
little louder but still the same.

Does it do it with the engine off and the key in the ACC position?

Are you sure its not from the door panel speakers? That's where I have the same noise from in my 97' S-10 ......

I tried it with just acc on and still there.. and I'm positive it isn't my door speakers. I am changing the door speakers tonight so I will update on the possibility of it being the door speakers.

always replace doors and dash speakers on any car. that way youll know speakers are good. i replaced mine with rockford fosgate, if nknew speakers dont sound good then you did something wrong with the wiring.
