    Installed New Headunit now speaker makes crackling noise

    I'm trying to install my new Clarion ProAudio DXZ545MP but I am stumped on this problem that I'm getting with my new Headunit. My front speakers that is directly hooked on the unit makes this annoying crackling sound, it's like listening to a radio station that needs fine tuning, on every cd either mp3, burned cd and original cds. I didn't have that problem with my pioneer dehp4400 before it got yanked out by theives. I'm about to give up on this its either go to a stereo shop or return this unit to sounddomain and get something else.

    I have replaced the front stock wire speakers with a better one but crackles never disappeared. I have grounded the head unit into the nearest metal brace available it still crackles. I tried different good speaker and it still crackles. I even tried to power the speaker with a spare amp but it just got louder. I have switched the front and rear speaker wires but it didn't do anything Any Ideas on what the hell is going on. Please help me on these it's driving me nuts.

    To be honest is sounds like you are not getting a good contact in your system. I am almost wondering if the theives hurt your wire running to your speakers. If they some how rubbed off the insalation if could be touching metal and making that noise. If not it sounds like your head unit if bad.
