  4. Sound System Issue

    9-5 Workshop
    I noticed one of my rear deck speakers was cracking so I bought a used HK replacement online and it makes the same noise. I also have noticed the sound almost sounds like it skips out. Confirmed this is whether the audio is a cd or AUX. Since I've replaced the rear deck speaker already, I'm...
