Speaker Trouble (Crackling in front)

Hi All

I've recently bought a VW Polo R reg (1998 I think).


I bought a new Stereo, a pretty cheap one with the following specs:
Power Supply DC 11-14V
Speaker Impendance 4 ohms
Power Output 40W x 4


I've put my own speakers on the parcel shelf and hooked them up to the new stereo. The wiring is correct and allows me to fade from front to rear left to right etc..

The Problem:

When the back speakers are wired up, the front 4 (2 bass speakers built into the door, 2 tweeters on the dash) become very distorted and crackle when the volume / bass is up.

If I unplug the back speakers they are fine again.

Do I just need an amp / better car stereo, to give all speakers more power? Or could it be something else.

Any help much appreciated.
