Have you brought this to the attention of your local dealer? Please feel free to keep me posted. Thank you in advance.Aircraft mechanic said:I have been experiencing a similar issue with crackling in my front passenger speaker. The issue seems to be intermittent and somehow related to other electrical systems. I hear the crackling both when the radio is on and even when the radio is turned off. At first I suspected a lose wire on the speaker but realized when turning the sound is repeatable. The crackling also is also related to the fog lamps and some other electrical systems which could be either a computer related issue or possibly a short in the system that bleeds current to the speaker. Wire chafe issue?
I can also look into this further for you. In order to do so, I will need some more specific information from you. If you could please send me your full name, address, phone number, the VIN for the vehicle, current mileage, and dealer name via private message, I will be able to take further steps. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.Shanks12 said:My wife has been experiencing this problem in her 2010 Terrain.

Your dealer should be following this PI bulletin if it has 2.4L. We have fixed a few with this repair:Shanks12 said:My wife has been experiencing this problem in her 2010 Terrain. The Dealers says they can't replicated the problem so they don't know what to do.
TradedmyTerrain said:Yes, I've had a similar problem. 5 visits for me.
First, I reported 'crackling' in front speakers on the driver side. Indicated problem occured in the front midrange door speaker and the post mounted tweeter.
Also indicated problem could be one of two things:
1. ground in the harness on the front, left channel intermittently causing crackling sound, or more probable;
2. bad channel (front, left) causing this issue.
Visit 1, they diagnosed problem. Believed it was the driver's door speaker that was failed/cracked. Ordered new one, scheduled visit 2
Visit 2, replace door speaker, diagnosed problem as tweeter in the post, ordered new tweeter, scheduled visit 3
Visit 3, replace tweeter. Believed problem was solved, it wasn't, schedule visit 4 with 'Audio Expert' from 3rd party
Visit 4, "audio expert' ignored input from owner (me) and did a software upgrade on the stereo. Problem still existed. Told my wife that some level of distortion is expected/acceptable in the stereo (wrong answer). My wife advised to order 'every part not previously changed' and schedule visit 5.
Visit 5, replace amplifier. Problem gone away.
Now, I can also tell you that for 4 months after, the problem never existed. That's the good news. The not so good news, is i heard the problem re-appear twice last week. The even worse news, I traded the vehicle in last week so I cannot confirm/deny whether the problem is or will progress.
There is a possibility that since its always the same speakers/channel everyone is reporting, that #1 of my list the issues I reported initially exists as part of an installing issue, causing #2 to occur. Not likely. More likely, is there is a design flaw in the Pioneer amplifier being supplied always affecting the same channel. (could be bum resistors, capacitors, etc on the amp itself)
Good luck finding resolution but I've had the amp replaced and it solved the issue.
