THey could of had different equalizer settings on the store display models. They probly intentionally turned a lot of the settings down so people wont blow the speakers.

If all the speakers do that, and even when you brought the speakers in and they don't.. might be the HU'* amp itself..

did your stock speakers distort with the JVC cd player? If not, then it'* more than likely not hte cd player. I'm still putting my money on the front speakers not being sealed to the door panel. Do the speakers just make farting noises for bass?

Not just bass. Lyrics and treble too. I can have the bass all the way down. Only the 5-1/4s too. I have it now so my fronts are turned down half way. But when i turn it up its very distorted. I changed everything at the same time, and yesterday i tried a different radio ( because i bought my gf the same one) and the same thing with hers. In her car everything sounds great. She has a 2 door saturn with aftermarket speakers as well. So it has to be either wireing, or what you said about the space in my door..? Any one else have this problem?

Test each wire to the ground.. and see if one of them is shorted against the chassis somewhere.. then check against each speaker pair wires to see if they're shorted together.

I had the same problem with my 2001 SE when I wired up my aftermarket equipment.

Sounds as if you may have one speaker wired correctly, but the other side is wired the opposite. For instance left speaker wired + - , right side wired - +. This would cause the sound to be both distorted and low bass sound. Try changing the wire configuration on one side of the car only.

Okay. I got the new radio its really nice. But now when i turn it up past 40 it still makes a tick distortion sorta noise. And its only when the amps are on. If i just play my 6-9s it is fine. Could it be remote, power or rca cables. I checked the ground.. anyone know???
