I actually tried connecting the rear speakers to the front channel, and most of the crackling went away. So this seems to eliminate a speaker or wiring problem.

One guess I have is maybe the receiver is underpowered, and the crackle is due to "clipping". However, it even happens at very low volumes.
Another guess could be dirty power, but it's happened at two different locations. Also that wouldn't explain why the crackling is much worse in the rear than front.

I use to have a JVC and would set the mid/treble
to about 7DB plus and started to crackel
Hope this may be a lead
