    My stock speakers fried in my car a while back and I got new ones, two Pioneer TS-A1675R to be exact. I managed to get them to fit, but the door card is pressing up against them, so 3 of the plastic clips around it are not snapped in. Been that way for... I don't know, 2 years now?

    The problem is they both make a horrible crackling sound during higher pitch notes, and especially when vocals happen. Anyone run into this issue before and know a fix?

    what about the lower end response? does this only happen in the higher volume or across the band?

    Bass and mid-range are flawless across all volumes. High range creates the crackles and depending on where my volume is set decides how intense the crackles. Are. Louder volume = more crackles on higher notes. Quieter volume = fewer crackles on higher notes. But there is always some trace of crackles on higher notes.
