It crackles. Why does it crackle?
I have a 2014 GT with the electronics package (HD Radio, nav, voice activated commands, etc.) The left (drivers side) rear speaker has started to make a crackling sound intermittently. This sound occurs when the vehicle is idling or being driven. It occurs when I have the music system turned on, but ALSO OCCURS when the music system is turned off. I know it is coming from the left rear speaker, because when I unplug that speaker, the crackling stops. I am not the original owner, so I can't say how loud the previous owner liked to listen to music.
Blown speaker? Has anyone else had this issue? Why is it intermittent and why does it occur when the sound system is turned off? Does this speaker stay live all the time to enable door chimes, ignition chimes, etc to be heard?
