Your tweeter can be blown or your reciever cant handle the power or your wiring can be off or it can be your source.

Play 2 movies and when the sound comes on put your ear to right next to the speakers and if its all speakers doing that its your recievr.
If its one particular speaker out of all your speakers its your speaker with a blown tweeter. Play 2 sources to check if its the source.

Unplug all your speakers then replug it back in and if its doing the same thing, its the tweeter thats blown.

Its either your source or your reciever. Its getting distorted.

ok it seems to be the front right speaker thats making the noise. it only happens now and then though, not all the time. should i unplug my FR speaker and continue to listen just to make sure?

Are you running a sub and where are your main R&L speakers crossed over at? Is it too much bass coming thru the L&R speakers?

def not the source. iv herd this crackling noise with a few diff movies and tv shows. so i guess its my FR or amp. my receiver is sony str-dh820 and my front speakers are tannoy. i dont think its the speaker cable as they are qed air locked pluged.

Play the same source, and hook your FL speaker to the FR channel and check if it makes the same noise... If it does the same thing its your amp.

Yep, the crossover and wiring for your front right channel is damaged, thats why its throwing off a different soundstage. Its your amp.
