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?

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]
