So two things.. first my speakers are located below in my sig.

First problem: i took my driver side door panel off yesterday to tighten my tweeter and my crossover cover was off and when i removed the door panel a spool of wire fell out of the crossover. it was glued on obviously but what did this do?

oh and theres no saving it because my dbag friend took it unwound it and effed it up bad. so yea im beat. Speakers still work though.

Buuttt now there is an annoying crackle from my Right speaker. Different situation and i think unrelated. But when i hit about 55-60 it crackled.. not like alternator whine, its a legit crackle like rice krispy style.
Only out of that right speark ( i cant tell if its tweeter or woofer because im driving and it only happens at 55mph^
I faded to the front left, turned the radio off and it still happens.

I havent touched anything as far as wiring so im assuming something may have came loose?

The part that came unwound was an inductor which could have been from the woofer or tweeter filter. Either way that particular driver is now operating without proper attenuation with regards to filtering. You could try to find out the value of the inductor and replace it if you're attached to that set of speakers. Look for a number with the letters mH next to it. This means millihenries. If you're handy with a soldering iron it could be a simple fix.
