"speaker wire was clamped and is contacting/shorting to ground."

there is still normal sound coming through the front right speaker, but there is also an additonal fuzzy i don't think that the wire is grounded otherwise there wouldn't be any sound coming through...


the speaker only produces this noise when the engine is on. in accessory mode, the speaker acts normal.

must be the 12vdc engine line

Answer: Only when engine is running, but not in ACC mode:
Because, the cables that come from the distribuitor to the sparks (high something cables) internaly have a resistance measured in Ohms. Check and see if these cables are well connected (clean terminals). Make sure you didn't buy cheap cables.
Check order of connection before disconnecting.

If problem is not solved, check for speaker cables that come from the radio not to be broken and making contact with ground.
Get a long enough cable, connect to radio and to speaker( make sure to diconnect old one (just to try)

Also check that speaker terminals are not grounded when screwed.

This will solve it

It was raining one day, and the next day it happened. I have no clue what it was...maybe some moisture leaked in the speaker wire somewhere.

Thanks for the help
