All of a sudden my 87 560 sec has a distortion sound from both front and rear speakers.Like a krackle sound then for no reason goes away. It is going on regular . Could it be something electrical. Everything else seems to be fine. Very strange ?
THANK'S WALT:confused:

Does the noise change if you put pressure on or roll the fader switch back and forth? If so, take out the fader and hit it with contact cleaner. That usually does it for me. They all do it at one time or another.

It is possible the switch needs to be replaced, or that there is a ground or wiring problem, but 9 times out of 10 the intermittent crackling is the fader switch.
