    If it's ONLY at high volumes, you can probably rule out the second one ...

    yea i kinda know what you are talking about. For the most part I would say that its just the way each song is. Because lets say a song will actually have MORE bass than the songs that song clean, they might not handle it really well. Maybe get an amp to power those speakers and see how they sound then. Anything that does 65-80 will be a big improvement. I saw a huge improvement when I upgraded to a crappy sony 4 channel amp that was probably overrated.
