Crack from front right speaker


Novice Member
Why do I get a crackle from front right speaker. Never any other speaker.

This only occurs when there is an extremely loud explosion, or something similar .

I had a 7.1 system with a yamaha amp

I replaced the amp with a pioneer vsx-lx303.

Replaced both front speakers.

Added 2 atmos speakers.

I now have a 7.1.2 system.

I have checked the terminals and replaced the speaker wire to the front right speaker, twice.

However as before I still get the crackle from front right speaker during extreme explosion scenes, and not in all films.

So I have replaced the amp , the front speakers and the speaker!!!

Odd one this. If you've changed the amps and the speakers then perhaps the source is the problem.
