So my speakers started crackling when my bass was turned up past the second notch, use to not do it, I put in a brand new pair of kicker speakers and they are still doing it, assuming it’s the amp.

I have a 2009 v6 with the 45th anniversary badge on the sides, not sure if I have the shaker 1000 or 500 with that, but I am not seeing any amps underneath the driver dash, please help me find my amps so I can identify if they are the problem!!

also attached pics of my trunks speakers, one cord hangs lower and seems detached, what is this? ( one photo of each speaker)

That second pic, the wires may be shorting on the speaker frame. Either tape each wire or put tape on the frame. Have you listened to each speaker to determine where the noise is coming from? I don't know what may have changed between 06 and 09, but the 06 plain stereo has 4 speakers, the Shaker 500 has the 4 speaker, plus 2 subs, one in the bottom of each door. The Shaker 1000 also has about a 10" sub in the trunk on the passenger side. Listen to each speaker and determine where the noise is coming from.
