speakers crackling cutting in and out

My front right and back left speakers are crackling, and cutting on and off. When I hit a bump, or dip...it seems to come back on for a few minutes. I have had the fairing off before, and just want to know if anyone else has had any luck checking a ground wire or a pliug in area? Thanks!!

I have the same issue with my 07 ultra, as I am riding, the sound goes out, so I flip the 3 way switch close to the ignition block. However, it keeps going out. I ran a diagnostic on the radio and it gave me two codes. B2017 (LF speaker) and B2021 (RR speaker), both indicate open. Do you know what I should do to fix this issue?

Speakers cutting off

Well, figuring that HD would run me a good size bill, I did the next thing that comes to mind and installed my own system! After research, I ordered a system from Biketronics. Prior to installation: RT handlebar stereo controls not working, LT control partially working, 3 way switch by ignition replaced, however sound kept cutting off. After installation, both handlebar controls are working, switch by ignition not needed, intercom and cb no longer works. What I purchased: Sony DSX-S100 (IPOD/USB) tray, Biketronics BT1002 installation kit, BT480 amplifier kit (180 RMS), BT471 Titan II 6 1/2" speakers with mounts, Retroradio module (Biketronics innovation). Mike the owner also threw 4 USB thumbs (funny, bottle opener at the end) and a splash cover for the radio face. Speakers, amp, retroradio have lifetime warranty. Believe me, the sounds are really clear, I also added a pair of Polk DXI525 5 1/4" on tour pak pods, no amp needed, this setup sounds like a car stereo, and it does turn heads! Well worth the $1,045.00 I spent (HD will replace under warranty with a refurbished radio, not a new one which costs $1,000.

Problem with my radio was when riding, speakers would randomly just cut out. If I shut radio off and turn back on, it would work fine. I removed the fairing and speaker wires were barely connected. I made better connection but now I have absolutely no sound. Radio looks like it works fine but have no music. I've checked for pinched wires but can't find anything. Help would be much appreciated.
