New Car Speakers and Amp Issues
Ok, I recently bought a 2004 Chevy Silverado. With the stock stereo, the front right speaker would distort randomly at different volumes. I installed an aftermarket Pioneer Deck, with new 6.5 compnent speakers up front, and new 4x6 speakers in the back, topping it all off with a older MTX 404 4 channel amp. The speakers will distort and crack at random, no matter what volume I have the stereo at, and when you turn the volume up passed a certain level, the sound cuts out. What sucks is, I have checked the ground numerous times on the deck, and the amp. Cannot find a problem there, and the amp doesn't get very hot at all. The head unit gets pretty hot. I cannot figure out why the stock system cracked randomly as well, like this new set-up. I bought one of theose special harnesses and wired the amp directly to the stock speaker wire, then the rest into the deck. PLEASE HELP! Any advice would be great.
