    Anthem causing static and crackling in my amp speaker(s)?

    I just had a luthier install the new anthem system in my custom Mark Kett 000-13 Fret and its sounds fantastic except...

    I started to notice a static crackling from the 12" speaker in the Genz Benz Acoustic amp I own. I thought it was the amp and cleaned all the pots and inputs, but its still there.

    I just got a Roland JC-77 and I played out on Friday and again noticed the same crackling coming from the 2-10" speakers.

    I checked all the cords etc and then plugged in my Morgan Concert with the LR Baggs iMix system in and no noise. I tried another guitar, a CA with a fishman and again, no noise.

    It's now quite probable that it is coming from the Anthem ( I have the adjustable version, not the SL)

    Has anyone experienced this problem? Could improper installation cause this? The pickup is amazing and I would love to solve the issue so I can use it this weekend.

    PS: The problem is intermittant and sporadic. It's OK and then it starts to crackle, stops, then starts and goes for a while, then stops etc.

    I would appreciate any input the members may have.
