check your connections on the back of the speakers... make sure they aren't accidentally touching each other, and make sure they're really connected good. they may have been blown... have they been doing this since you put them in? or did it just randomly start...?

Do you have access to an Digital Multi Meter? Set it on ohms and place a probe on each speaker lead. Your speakers should measure 4 ohms (+ or - .2).

Sounds like someone is getting new speakers soon. That noise is usually going to be caused by partially blown speakers.

my stock speakers did the same thing and so do my pioneers. it only happens when its cold outside. and to fix the cracking sound, all i have to do is shut off my hu and turn it back on but it will come back eventualy.

my thought is wires touching or picking up static signal from somewhere. is it like a white noise sound or crunching up a sheet of paper?
