OK, last two mornings, get in my car after it's been down below 25-degrees here and within the first 1/2 mile I get a static-like sound (resembling sound of a blown speaker) coming out of my front stage.
First day, I near shat myself 'cause I have blown a few pretty expensive speaks lately while setting up my system and I think "not AGAIN!" Then, it cleared up leading me to wonder if I was just hearing things or mistaking a brush on the snare drum as distortion.
Second day, same thing happened. I haven't been unable to recreate the issue but it seemed to be either both speakers or source related (iPod) because the sound came from the center of the soundstage. It's not the rips because it was on different albums/songs each morning and each song has been tested as clean since.
Both times, it cleared up in less than one minute.
Obviously, I will continue to try to troubleshoot this, but I thought I would post just in case someone might have some insight to make the diagnostics easier.
