Mach1000 tweeter issue???

I have the Mach1000 in my 02 GT. The right side tweeter when turned up makes a lot of crackling sounds, yet when low, it sounds fine. So I assumed I had a blown tweeter. Bought a brand new one from Ford, and the new one does the same thing. So to triple check, I take the left side off and plug it in, and it sounds the same also. The right side sounds great, so I know that is a good speaker. And it sounded great plugging it back in. So my questions is, what else could it be as I have ruled out a blown speaker?

my opinion is to check the wiring. i honestly would have checked that first, but i see why you thought that it was a blown speaker. after that check the connection to the head unit in the car. That is what i would try next. most of the time its a simple problem like those.

I took out the radio and all the factory plugs seem tight. But the wires from the head unit didn't match the same color as the tweeter speaker. I thought the tweeters were run off the head unit. But it must come off the amp. But I can't seem to find the amp. I got the radio out and was told the amp is under it. But there is nothing below it. Is there another spot with the Mach1000 in a 02 mustang?

You're getting interference in the wire, it may need to be better insulated or routed differently.

I can't see how I could re-route the wires or insulate them more. There all in the factory locations, and it only happens when I turn the radio up. The lower volume, the speakers works fine. If it was interferance, would it not sound bad from low to high volume? Also, could it be the head unit?

I did more testing today, and I believe it's my CD player doing it. I can play the radio as loud as I can with no crckling at all. Play a CD and it's good to about 1/2 volume, then it starts to crackle. So this pretty much elimanates speakers and wireing. So is this a common issue with the 460 radio? I like my radio, but I don't want to get into a big wireing headach putting in a brand name head unit and not getting good sound like I've been reading on the forums. So should I take a chance and buy another 460 on ebay?
