    high pitch screech from stereo

    my 02 TA has a high pitch screech coming from the speakers when i turn the music up to a certain point. it plays fine for a moment, then a mixture of static, and high pitch screeches take over and its really annoying. it does it with both the radio and cd...does anyone know whats going on with my stereo/radio??

    thanks

    I wonder if that's a speaker deal, or if it's the head unit. Play around with the fade and balance to see if it's only one or a couple speakers doing it.

    im pretty sure its the monsoon...the door speakers are aftermarket...its a collector ed. TA but i think the guy who had it before me put in a stock delco head unit..it has worked fine for me up until now. the noise is coming from all the speakers.

    monsoon deck has 'monsoon' on it, under the clock I believe.. the reason i ask is because if its monsoon it could be a deck OR amp problem; if no monsoon amp and coming from all speakers I would suspect deck has taken a dump.

    Mine did that several months ago, it was the monsoon amp. The screeching subsided but the static got worse and turned into ear shattering pops at any volume. Finally replaced everything, sound quality is far superior to anything the monsoon ever put out.

    Sounds like a good candidate for complete system overhaul...don't neccessarily need to spend a lot.. could go as cheap/simple as buying $200 head unit, running speaker leads to 2 speakers in front and 2 in back *bypassing monsoon amp* and you'll loose the sail subs. Start buying amps and speakers, sound quality is greatly increased but so is $$.

    ok...today i got my amp out and checked it out...nothing seemed to be wrong on the outside..but who knows on the inside.. but when i unplugged the amp the stereo still worked and then screeched like it has been doing.. is it normal that the stereo works the same without the amp plugged in as it does with it plugged in?

    nope..if there's not another after-market amp installed in the car then i'd say its running off that deck that's in it...odd for someone to do that. But obviously an amp that's not plugged in can't be producing sound through speakers. If I were you I'd disect that system to find out exactly what has been done and how. Take the deck out, see what kind of wiring job you find behind it. Trace speaker leads and see where they go. I'd take door panels off and check out what's lurking back there. Ultimately, find out how everything 'works' right now. then you can post up and accomplish whatever your goals with it turn out to be once you know what you're workin with. Good luck! Perfect excuse for a day with the car and some beer!

    Sounds like the amps been bypassed, Your best bet would be to take 02WS6dream's advice "find out how everything works".

    the steering wheel controls don't work cause the deck that supported them has been replaced. My advice is not to replace with monsoon stuff, for the money it would take to do that you can have a much better sounding system--you have to replace anyway; why not do it the way you want it to sound? And you can make your steering controls work with an aftermarket radio so you haven't lost them forever. Let us know what you and your friend find, and what you ideally want from the system and I'm sure plenty of us will offer our humble .02 the monsoon isn't bad for a stock radio, but is very limited. Would hate to see you spend your money just to have that system again--no matter how modest your goals are with it.

    and replacing front 6.5 components with coaxial 6X9's is retarded..decent pair of 6.5 components outperform 6x9's...and surely not the other way around--absolutely no reason to do that!! Some ppl will do a lot of B.S. to prove how 'cool' they are!

    Yeah I'd have to agree don't bother trying to replace the monsoon system. I debated this for a while, because i really liked the factory look, but after pricing everything out it came to about 650 to do it. Really didn't think the monsoon ever sounded that good. For a couple hundered more i got a sound system that I really enjoy now and my steering wheel controls still work. In the end its your car, you have to do what you want and what you like. Whichever way you decide to go we are all more than willing to help. I'll pimp a picture of my HU so you can see it doesn't look bad and in my opinion looks just as good as factory. Sorry not the best picture, cheap camera

    well the problem was the pass. door speaker. the connectors came loose and were touching each other so that was causing the screech....i really need to find some speakers for the doors that acually fit right and not use these half ass 6x9s they put in haha thanks for your guys help

    no pics at the moment but just picture the door speaker being there how it should be....then rip out the speaker, tweeter, and black speaker housing piece and throw a 6x9 in it with only the top and right screw holding it in cuz thats all that can line up....haha freakin rediculous if you ask me but i should be getting a speaker and housing for it sometime soon so hopefully that works out
