Static/crackling noise from speakers

Recommended Posts


I have a small but very annoying issue. My IS 200 has the external stock amp w/ 8 speakers. The sound is pretty good and balanced, except for some soft static crackling/hissing noise. The noise is coming from all speakers on all inputs - radio, cd and tape. It is present only when I start the engine and does not disappear when I turn the volume all the way down. It also does not get louder with the volume and does not change with the engine rpm or in any other way. It disappears when the engine is off or when I turn off the audio system.

I have been to several car audio professionals and they have dismissed the problem as being very minor and very costly to locate and fix.

So is this a common issue with our model? Is there an easy fix?

Thank you and have a wonderful year!
