    Crackling Problems

    I've got components up front, 6x9s in the rear off a 4 channel amp. Suddenly, I've got intermittent crackling coming from all four speakers and when I turn it up the sound sometimes jumps between the left and right channels. Any guesses as to what it could be. I hooked up my ipod and a y-adapter to my amp and the same thing happens, so the head unit is out.

    Grounding?

    possibly a speaker wire is shorting out by touching metal that's not part of the speaker.

    Yes it possibly could effect the other channels. If the ground through the speaker wire was a better ground than the actual ground wire on your amp, it would ground as much as possible through the speaker wire. Check to make sure you don't have a bad speaker wire and also check your ground wire at the amp.
