Radio/dvd Failure

Recommended Posts

2001 Lexus LX-470

One speaker in back, forget which side, starting making scratching/popping noises.

Using Fade/side controls at radio, ignored the problem hoping I could sometime open the panel and check the speaker.

Then, radio/dvd all went out with no sound whatsoever

Then, very, very loud static/popping/cracking sound from speaker system mostly at startup for about 3 minutes but then randomly later when driven.

Took to dealer, said amplifier was probably the issue.

$850 for new amp and then they could further analyze.

Getting varying/suspect quotes from aftermarket installers that require new amp, new wiring, and even new radio/dvd.

Any and all ideas appreciated..
