My speakers are now crackling after switching to 14 gauge wire. I was using the wire that came in my old sony all in one. I actually never had any problems at all with it. I bought some 14g phillips wire from walmart, and now my speakers are acting kind of weird.
I know that walmart is probably not the best place to buy anything for a home theater, but speaker wire should work no matter where you get it.
What could I have done to make my speakers crackle like they are? It sounds like a short somewhere, but I can't find one.
If one of the wires have a bad connection, would it make all of the speakers make this noise, or would it just be the one speaker with the bad wire?
Here's another question while I'm thinking of it.
I have a dennon 1909, and have been noticing that my cable every so often goes out for 2 or 3 seconds. Sometimes it's just sound, others it's video, sometimes it's both. I have my cable box hooked up hdmi. It doesn't seem to do it with the ps3, and has only done it once with the 360.
Is this something that happens occasionally, when running everything through a receiver? Or should I take the receiver in for service?
