The above http is no longer functioning which is too bad b/c my MBP speakers are crackling like crazy and I ain't about to take it in for some fancy-smancy repair (even though the Apple care crew are super humans).

Go into the sound control panel and alter the balance setting so you bias one speaker over the other. Then crackup the volume. Which one is it?

I just wanted to thank you! I never would have thought that going into the sound preferences and changing the alert sound would fix it, but sure enough it did. I play around with audio setups all the time due to music software and didn't think I changed it to the blow sound effect, but I must have. I may have brought it into apple for a repair. It's a desktop so I'm not a fan of moving it anywhere. Thanks again!!!!

Vijay the tip was so you could figure out which speaker is damaged in its self it won't fix your problem unless you have the volume set to high. Once you know which speaker you can then replace it.

Check your System preferences/Sounds/Sound Effect tab.

See if there is a sound effects selected, mine was Blow effect, hence the output sounds is crackling.

And I never set this sound effect before, maybe is the original setting from the new OS.

Uncheck the [Play user interface sound effects]

If you’re using a DAW like logic and you have your I/O buffer size any lower than 128 samples and your core audio is enabled then you need to set it to 128 and it’ll fix your problem

go to logic - system preferences - audio - I/O buffer size
