    still crackling!

    i fitted new door speakers last nite, but tried them out and they still crackle! So im guessing i have a diffrent problem.
    The wiring in the door is bad, the previous owner has cut the original wire, then twisted and taped in some vide wire, that is then taped again to the original plug.
    How hard is it to run new wires?
    Also, my headunit has to be on volume 45+ just to here it, so when i drive its on about 70-90! This seems wrong to me. Its a goodmans headunit, not a great one, but all i have at mo.
    Please advise me asap, as need to do this today/now!

    check ur wiring behind head unit n make sure any wires r insulated proper.b tricky runnin new wires throu door.i'd take that vibe wire out n use normal wiring wv the plug.check for loose connection in bk of head unit n follow wiring much as u can cud be tape up sumwere in between.

    Expecting a reply in 19 minutes on a sunday morning......

    Sounds like the internal amps faulty on the headunit, whats the rear speakers like?

    When repairing the wiring in the door looms you need to solder the joints to make a good connection.
