    Hi ,
    I get a static crackle on my radio speakers when the radio is on or off. This only happens when the weather is dry, hot and sunny. The problem has not shown up since last year, again during fine weather in September.
    My car is an E46 320 CD sport. Is this a known fault or a one off? Thanks for any help

    Its a known fault Don.

    Sounds like the Amplfiier is faulty....Its in the glove box iirc.

    Have a search on the forum and there are some previous threads on this topic. I will have a dig around later on today when ive got a bit more time.

    Hi,

    Usually when you get a crackling noise on the speakers its either because the unit hasnt been earthed properly or one of the wires on the speakers might be loose. Try checking all the connections and see whether that helps.

    When I did one of my very first installs I managed to position the sub box on top of a speaker wire. The rubber casing had worn through to the bare wire and was earthing out on the body of the car whenever the box moved.

    A speaker wire from the head unit may be wearing against one of the many sharp metal brackets behind the dash?

    Unlikey but certainly a possibility and worth checking out if you can't find the problem.

    Hi Boostist,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Have searched the forum but have not found any references to my problem, hope you can point me in the right direction. Have looked in the glove box and only found the fuse board.
    Regards, Donjones
