Have you tested your speakers with another source such as a portable cd player?

Can you cause the crackling sound by wiggling the connectors?

Have you tried changing the audio cables?

Have you tried re-seating your sound card, or moving it to a different pci slot

farthest away from PSU It might be possible that once the load on the PSU gets
higher its interference field gets larger!

Do you have a cell phone near your speakers or the sound card? Any device
that reaches a certain frequency will cause a constant clicking noise.

What you wanna do is plug in a set of headphones and see if they
sound alright. If it's alright, then your soundcard's fine. It may be that your
soundcard is sending a signal too powerful for your speakers.
Finally: Are you 100 % sure that the Crackling Sound Coming from your Speakers or From your
Monitor !!!!
Good luck...

Hi:just Curious did you have an
Nforce chipset ?This is a common problem of Nforce chipse
However have you tried going into the
start/run/dxdiag/ and turn the sound
acceleration down to standard or basic !!!
Have you tried another Sound card driver ?
Also have you tried another Speakers ?
Finally:what about Borowing another Sound Card from a Friend & just tested to see if that will solve your problem
Bon Courage..

Have you tried turning the volume down?

It could be overloading so try turning down the volume from the computer (then turn up any control on speaker itself).

The other possibility is that the speakers are too sensitive, in which case try the opposite combination.

With some cards it's a bit of a balancing act,
although the symptoms are more often distortion or background noise respectively.
