I had a problem similar when I put a hi power unit in my boat. The speaker wire was too thin. I changed it out with some higher quality, thicker gauge and the problem went away. Also while doing that I found that the old speaker wire also had 3 or 4 splices in it.

Very finicky on power input Your battery has to be right up there- not a hair low Ran into this same problem with my travel trailer New battery and the problem was gone
