    some times when songs play the songs come through speakers winey . ..its been that way for years. I seldom listen to it any way... sitting in the driveway they sound good but if I do listen to them at lower speeds the winey sounds happen....well off and on. No biggie was wondering if others noticed this who may still use the stock radio systems...

    How are you sourcing the songs, do you mean through the fm radio stations, weather band or when blue toothing? If via blue tooth check ur cable as it’s allowing interference, or a loose ground wire

    Crap in, crap out.....

    Doesn't matter how good a system you have if the source material is worthless. Not saying this is the case in your instance, rather a rule of thumb.

    I've discovered strong EMI (radiated emissions) coming from somewhere near the front of my gas tank, which leaks into my audio stuff.

    Audio systems can be sensitive to stray EMI, poor grounding, ground loops, ...etc.

    I've had to replace all my audio-related wiring with shielded cabling. And, avoid using the harness wiring for power and ground (where possible). Google "single point ground" for tech info...

    Bad grounds can get engine noise into stereo systems.

    Hopefully you are not still using the OEM speakers they would be blown by now.
