It sounds to me that the volume on each channel needs to be adjusted. Basically, just turn up your clean volume so that it matches the distorted volume.
Oh crap!

thats the thing u see for now ive only got a small 12 watt amp while im waiting for my marshall, and the one i have now hasonly 3 dials tone volume and gain, and and overdrive button and usually the overdrive and clean are generally the same volume and the overdrive goes crackly then goes extremely loud

Try resetting the settings on your distortion channel. Keep the volume and the gain down, put the tone to where you want it, then gradually bring the gain and volume up. If it doesn't screw up, you probably just had the settings too high or something.

i have a small rms amp, its alrite for just practicin at home but it gets really annoying wen the sound stuffs up

That's your amp problem.
It's because of the gain, it increases the volume by alot.

You have to lower the volume of the distortion channel by a lot and increase the gain.

This is my setting on my cube 30w

VOLUMES

Clean 4

Distortion 2.5
Gain 8

hte gain stays really crackly and static rather then distorted but wen the gain is rite up, the distortoin is fine but theres a lot of interference and feedback

also check your cables yo, try switching individual ones, see if that does anything

i went crazy trying to see if one of my pedals on the board was bad, or pups or amp, turns out it was one of the dinky connector cables (between two pedals)

When you are playing distorted, youre probably causing the speaker to bottom out and "fart" which is loud and crackly.

and is that permanent damage or not?
#15
The Gain(distortion) Is loader than clean. As far as the crackly sounds it could be you cord. Check and see if it in all the way. If it still hapens its the pickups .

If it happens all the time, for a long time, yes.

Not if it happens once every now and again.
