    Just bought a new Cd Player for my car.

    I don't know if you know but it turns out that the Car world doesn't use anything universal like the PC world. So therefore I have been soldering and cutting for hours.

    Finally got the f@#king think working, after pulling half the dash out and it turns out that the speakers are crackling when i play it . Not a normal crackle but a f@#king annoying crackle. I don't know what the problem is. It could be the speakers or the wiring. If anyone knows anything about this sort of thing, please help, its giving me the ****s. :cry:

    Moose seems to think that its the speakers, they don't have a high enough wattage and they are peaking. Bad.

    Probably. Are the speakers the same ones which came with the card orginally? You don't have something silly on like full bass do you, by mistake?

    sounds like your pumping those little 4" with too much power.
    could be an ohm problem or even a wattage problem although i doubt it.

    firstly. check the ohms of the sony head unit and that of the speakers. ( i recomend that you get a pair of sony xplod 6x9's in the near future anyway) getting your ohms wrong can and will kill your amp or in your case your head unit (seen it happen in the theatre )

    a few specs on teh speakers, and head unit, wiring description (both power wise and in terms of speaker wiring)

    I recently over hauled the system in my car as well as helped other do theirs so i can proberly help you on this one :)
