Ok, please don't flame me for Line 6.

I have a Spider III 30 and whenever I turn it on, it makes a crackling sound and either turns the volume way down, or muffles the sound a lot.

Is there anything I can do about this that you guys know of?

Hmm... blown speaker? Just a guess, but I'm not really sure.


that's probably the problem, I'd check that out.

when you say the volume goes down and becomes muffled, what happens when u try to move the volume knobs and change channels/ etc, does anything change?

Well it might be, because when I jam with my drummer friend the volume is on close to full, but that wouldn't blow it would it?

I'm taking it to L&M depending on how much they charge for repairs

EDIT: Yeah when I change the channel it goes normal, or reset the channel it does too, but it quickly goes back to the muffling.

Um, I don't have a Spider 3 but check your guitar pickups and your wire. When I get fuzz or crackles I check my pickups or cable. Believe it or not, some cables will fuzz on different amps. Cheap build is usually the blame.

I should have mentioned that. One of my cables was broken, and I didn't even notice. It gave these same problems.

I just replaced the cable not even a week ago, and still the same problem...
If they say nothing is wrong with my amp, then I guess I will check the pickups on my guitar.

Sounds like a blown speaker... the cost of a decent one will be expensive, lol.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

My first cable began to give me fuzz and if I wiggle the cable fuzz would go away and come back. I then borrowed a cable from my church and no more fuzz.

I highly doubt it's your guitar. When you take your amp in bring your guitar with and try it out with a couple different amps there and see if it does the same thing.
