What could be the issue with stereo.

I installed a cheap pioneer head unit in my wife's 2000 Jeep Wrangler. The old Pioneer unit that was in it did not work. After the installation all four speakers sounded like they were blown so I bought some new JBL speakers and I'm having the same issue. What could possibly be the issue?

What exactly is the sound problem that you're describing as sounding like the speakers are blown?

When you have a choice, buy American.

There's not much volume there and once it reaches about half way there is a lot of crackling with the tempo of the song.

Did you use an install kit wiring harness or just wire direct into the old wiring. Maybe you have something jumbled up by mistake.

Also make sure you have all youre tone controls set flat, no bass boost, etc.

If you can, pull the deck and bench test it. A cheap 12v power supply is great for this. Then just connect 2 old car speakers to the radio and see if you have the same problem. It's unlikely that the amp is bad in the new deck, but it is possible.
