Crackling in speakers

I replaced my factory front door speakers with Polk Momo's and had Circuit City install them. A few weeks after this I ordered some rear panel speakers (Chevrolet Silverado) by Polk and I replaced them myself.

When I turn the music up semi-loud the music starts crackling. Someone told me it could be fixed by an amp, but it also could be bad speakers. Is this a common problem without an amp? If it can be fixed I'm definately going to get one.

 
It sounds like to me that you have a speaker shorting to ground (I.E lead touching metal or bare wire touching metal). Pull your deck out, and check all speaker leads for continuity to ground. That might be your problem. That is what i would check first.

If the problem isn't sue to a ground, then you maybe are underpowering speakers by running them off the deck. An amp wont fix that problem if the speakers are already blown. I had a pair of Boston comps in my bronco with a similar noise. The week-old speaker turned out to be blow. Service plan helped me with that one!

 
Man, I hope they're not blown. Is there any easy way to tell if they're blown without getting someone to check them out?

I might take it to someone tomorrow and see what's going on.

Does this harness have anything resembling an LOC? If not, I would guess that is the issue. I would test an inline passive LOC.
