    Always?

    I've heard noises from the speakers in areas with no cell phone coverage when the phone in my pocket ups its power to try to contact a cell tower, but that was stopped or at very low speed when the cabin noise level was low.

    You may have a loose, or more likely a partially broken, connection.

    Loose wire or bad amp.

    My car made a clicking noise but it turned out to be the heated steering wheel and not a speaker.

    I had this. Reboot your MCU and see if it fixes this.

    I hear a crackling noise in the front speaker of my Tesla Model 3 as well. I'm not sure what it is but it happens intermittently when music is playing. It doesn't happened when the car is off or stopped. I wonder what it is and whether I should bring it in for service.

    Thanks, could be something like that but sound system works
    Thanks but in my case rebooting doesn't fix the problem :(

    I took it to the service center and Tesla tried to fix it twice and failed and declared it normal and it was summer so problem solved....

    I'll be revisiting it soon enough.
