Just Installed Front and Back Speakers Weird Issue

I just installed some nice kickers all around the car but now when I turn the radio up I get a real weird scratchy noise anyone have any ideas how to fix, and I know it's not the speakers cuz I had them in my last car

Maybe polarities are reversed on a pair.

Speakers can go bad just sitting around in a box.

Wait they do it volume low or high? Stock head unit? You may have speakers that need more or less power. I know some speakers sound horrible unless hooked up to an amp or after market head unit.

I have kickers all around as well, but I have a Sony head unit.

It's probably that your head unit is too weak. Speakers need the right amount of power to operate at full potential... like anything else.

Yep...your stock head unit isn't supplying enough power for your speakers so they'll start distorting @ certain volume-level(s). Should clear up when you get the aftermarket head unit installed.

Remember...Kickers are meant for "Kick'n" it up!
