Distortion with HK system

In case anyone else also has intermittent distortion from one or more speakers, this is a known problem at BMW. They have a replacement midrange speaker available to fix this, and I'm having mine serviced next week to sort this out.

Had this earlier in the week for the first time. On my way in to work I was playing some music on the hk pretty loud when one of the front speakers started making a horrible crakling sound. I thought I'd blown a speaker. I turned the sound up and down a few times over the space of a minute and it was still making this horrendous crackling sound. So I turned off the motorway and thought I'd pop it in to the dealers to show them as I was virtually passing. As soon as I turned off typically the speaker stopped crackling. So I carried on driving and it's not done it since. No doubt it my be an intermittent thing and will probably happen again.

it seems i'm having the same problem as well. Sometimes i hear a background noise like distortion from the speakers. Does the replacement program includes all speakers replaced?

Just front midrange as I understood it. And it wasn't a subtle background noise. It sounded like the speaker was torn.

I got my front midrange speakers changed too, a few weeks back. The car was just 3 days old when my speakers made a terrible noise.
