I has car.
crackling speakers could also be disintegrating surrounds. The one McStereo I've dissected (also from a 2001) had front speakers with completely deteriorated surrounds.Bump
I just bought an '01 VDC yesterday, and I really need to get my JVC double-DIN installed asap.
Which would be the easiest way to install it? I don't have a problem keeping the McIntosh amp, if that's easiest. Any pictures of the homemade harness mentioned above?
I noticed the front right speaker is popping under any nominal load. There is also some crackling all around when barely touching the volume knob on the Mc stereo. Do you think this is a HU problem, or the amp flaking out? My bet is on the HU.
They can be re-foamed.
