Default 2002 wrx - Passenger side front speaker beeping...loudly.

Vehicle- 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX

Current system-
Pioneer head unit, pioneer speakers, 5 channel Amp (Don't remember what brand, but it's 10+ years old), Rockford Fosgate 10" sub

Installer-
Myself

Installer experience-
I've done 3 complete audio set ups in my car, a gti, and a integra.

Budget-
Irrelevant to this problem.

Future Goals-
Fix this before I go insane.

So, since I installed this audio system in my car 5 years ago it has played music great. I did change out the two front speakers in June 2012. No issues.

I washed my car and this happened. WTF! The noise only comes from the passenger side front speaker, and does not change with speed while driving. I have checked the wiring to this speaker only. It looks fine. What could cause this?

*Turn your speakers down, it's very high pitched and annoying*



Any help would be appreciated. I am ripping the interior apart and re-wiring the audio system with all new wiring next week. But, it would be helpful to know if this was a head unit or speaker blown.

Thanks,
Theo

Sounds like an improperly grounded speaker.

Simple first step, swap the speaker with another at the amp, and see if the sound follows the speaker, or the output on the amp. That should help isolate your problem.

Ok so I took everything apart and used new wires, RCA's, connections and soldered what needed to be soldered.

- Hooked the speakers directly to the head unit at first, everything worked.
- Hooked speakers and amp on individual channels everything worked
- Front right speaker noise came back
- Swapped speakers and it's still the same front right giving me the issue.

I've come to the conclusion my amplifier is bad, but since I don't know that much about the topic I figured id update it on here. Thoughts?

Problem could be on the front right line-level output from your HU. So swap left and right inputs into the amp, and see if the problem stays on that same particular amp channel (the one driving your front right speaker).
