Left dealership 30 minutes and speakers already making "crackling" noise...

Hey guys.

I signed up for the forums just now, and I literally left the dealership about 30 minutes ago. Former C6Z driver, but I converted over to a 5.0 because I wanted a cheap DD with a 6 speed manual.

So on my way home I was listening to a local radio station and I noticed a slight popping noise that sounding like something was crackling. It reminded me of bacon. I turned the volume all the way down to a single bar and low and behold, the speakers were making a cracking sound. When I turned it down another notch to where everything was completely quiet, the sound went away. When the music is turned up, you can hear the sound distinctively.

I mean really? I left the dealership a half hour ago and the car has 40 miles and the speakers are cracking. Is this covered under warranty?

Is it a new car or used? Sounds like another member who bought a convertible and didn't notice her stereo system was bad, five months later. If used, you might have 90 days but get it back asap to the dealer.

Make sure there's nothing in the door pockets. I had an item in a blister package in the right one and the door panel vibrated the package making a terrible noise until I removed it.

I'll check tomorrow morning but I'm 99% sure it is the speaker. It's a very distinctive sound.

take it in, should not be a problem for it to be repaired under warranty.......then again Ford is known to try to get out of warranty repairs

The factory speakers may not be very good but that is no reason to put-up with something that is defective. Make Ford repair it and then upgrade when/if you want. That's my two cents.

This is probably your first new car? Why would you not think it will be covered on the car's B2B warranty? If you find a ding on the car door you could probably argue that the ding was there and they'll fix it the next day you bought the car.

I once had a suicide door Tacoma and there was a dent on the driver side. I didn't notice it till the next day. I took it back to the dealer and they fixed it for free.

Not saying that you can bring the car back a week later with a ding or dent but next day on a new car they should take care of you with no hassle

Put some axle-backs on that 5.0 and you won't need working speakers ever again.

Money well spent! I hardly ever use my radio after getting the axlebacks.

I hardly believe anyone can blow a new car speaker in forty minutes. I make regular 5 hour trips at least once a month with the radio blaring the whole way. I have almost 50k miles and speakers still kicking, without the bacon.

These cars have stereos? I'm sure you will have no problem getting it taken care of.

Depending on the song and type of bass I get that sound too... sometimes I check and there will be something in the door compartment like a little piece of candy rapper or a pebble my kids were playing with... sometimes I hear it and chexk and there is nothing in there. I will upgrade my speakers eventually but its not too terrible yet.

If it really bothers ya... google 8in midbass speakers and there are plenty of cheap alternatives to the factory speakers.

took the car in today. Apparently, it was an amp, and the dealer ordered a new one. I'll report back later after they install it.
