Default Speaker Static

I dug some old Roadmaster RS900, 6 x 9, 3-way speakers out the other day, and replaced the blown stock speakers in my truck. The problem is that I am getting all kinds of static no matter what volume the stereo is set to.

All of the connections are solid, I just used the old connections and got some adapters to connect the new speakers.

Any idea what could be causing the static, and how do I get rid of it.

Are you running the speakers off of the HU or an amp? Is it really static, or just a hiss?

I'm running the speakers straight from the receiver.

Yes it is static.

I figured it might be some kind of line noise, but I wanted to get a second opinion.

Static could be indicitive of a possible cold-solder joint inside the HU. If it was truly line noise, it would become less noticable as you turned the volume up. I'd say open up the HU and see what you can see.

I'll check that out this weekend when I get back home to all of my tools.

The noise is most noticable during moments of silence or when there is little musical activities. Once the music fills the speakers, it becomes less noticable, but it is still there. It's like that at every volume.

If that maybe changes the possible fix. If not thanks for your help, and I'll see what if can get it fixed.
