Sound system issue

Before I start off this is my first post and I apologize in advance if a thread similar to this has been started already.

I bought an 02 RSX Type S about 2 months ago and the sound system has been just fine. Stock speakers and sub with an alpine deck.

Now about a week ago I started experiencing and issue of the left side being very quiet. Not dead but quiet. If I go to my balance/fader settings it seems to solve the problem however sound quality in the left side gets worse (crackling and distortion).

Also i get a very slight jerk in my tachometer/revs every few minutes in neutral and when that happens the alpine deck turns off and turns back on.

Last thing to note i checked voltage and I'm at 13.5-14.3 Volts.

Trying to note everything without leaving anything out.

Again I apologize if I'm starting an old thread. I'm 16 with my first car and all of this is a pretty overwhelming experience.

Is your battery fairly new? If it is, how do the terminals look?

That's what I've been reading up that it could be the battery. I dont know how tbe battery is but I'll have a look in about 6 hours after work and I'll get back. Thank you.

I'd inspect the wiring under the pass. seat. Someone had to rewire the system to get the Alpine in there. Look for unwrapping cheap wire splices or bare wire near metal parts.

I also think that the Bose under the seat is dying. It's not unusual for one side (channel) to start to act up independent from the other. It can cause power probs in the process that may account for your dip in RPMs and the unit turning off momentarily.

If it were me; I'd perform the Bose Bypass to rule all that out completely. But I'd do it also because the Bose is just not very good. You'll lose the sub. But the sound quality of your Alpine is probably much better.

And just to be OCD about it. Make sure your trunk isn't full of water under the spare.
