    Issue with Speaker distortion

    I just bought a new JVC head unit and new speakers to replace my front and rear stock speakers. I also bought the JVC aux input adapter that plugs in the CD changer port. Everything worked fine for the first week but this morning i get in my car, plug in my mp3 player, press play, and hear distortion coming out of all 4 speakers. Its sounds bad on the low tones of the song similar to how a speaker would sound if it was blown. I also tried putting in a CD and listening to the radio but the distortion was still there. Any ideas on what this could be?

    when you say "bad cable", are you talking about the AUX input adapter?

    Also, as i mentioned, everything sounded great earlier this week in the same volume level i usually keep it in. This just all of sudden happened. The distortion doesnt just happen when the MP3 player is connected but even when i play a CD or radio.

    Oops. I missed that part sorry. It might be the radio itself. What kind of car is it installed in? If the aftermarket radio was interfaced with a premium sound system there could be other problems. I would be surprised if you blew your speakers already but anything is possible.

    check sound card settings, windows volume settings, grounds, speaker connections, connections at the amps, rca connections, etc.

    It is installed in a 87 Camaro. A premium Bose system was offered but I'm SURE that my car didnt have one. The stock radio was a Delco radio. I might have to go back and check the connections.
