    If so - not interested.

    I'm sorry all thease guys are asses and won't answer your question like an adult would. I asked, and the reason you are distorting is because your stock head unit was putting about 15 w to each of your speakers . Now it is about 40 to each. Eaithier put the stock back in or replace your speakers. :-) hope I helped

    Re: My speakers distort over volume of 3 (help)

    4?

    I think it's more than just crappy stock speakers. (Unless you blew the speakers with the new deck and then couldn't get past 4 without distortion.)

    I'm guessing that the speakers are blown or you have some aggressive signal processing active on the deck that's messing up your sound.

    First make sure there is no "bass boost" or "super duper sound stage optimizer" or whatever active on the deck. Then make sure bass, treble etc are all flat. ("0")

    Then use the fader and the balance to listen to each speaker individually.


    There's also a possibility that your deck isn't grounded well. I've seen HU's operate with the ground wire disconnected and exhibit horrible sound at any level over a whisper. (Some decks can get a pseudo-ground through the antenna connection)

    If that's the case, the lights on the deck will probably flicker and/or dim when the volume is turned up a little.

    It could be this but with volume 2-4 causing such a larch problem his speakers could be seriously blown, or Something is wired incorrectly. Like someone above suggested turn all audio enhancements down to 0/flat EQ you want things as basic as possible so that you know it is not a setting on your HU that is the problem. Next check the speakers if they sound like their voice coils are rubbing or they just distort horribly they may be blown. If your speakers were working fine before chances are there's something not right in the wiring, did you use an aftermarket harness or try to wire from a diagram?
