Talking Fuzzy tweeters

Yea awesome title I know, anyways I have a 96 GTI that I just bought and I noticed that all of the tweeters sound like they have static usually on rock stations. It has stock dash tweeters but the rear ones are newer Polk audio, so I know the speakers aren't bad. Is this normal for tweeters because of the bad quality of radio stations? I figure it is because it doesn't do it with CDs but it annoys the hell out of me so I figured I'd ask anyway. Thanks.

Static noise in the background of an FM station is normal. If you hear excessive amounts it might be indicative of a low end head unit. Or, you might have suffered some hearing loss and have the treble cranked way up to compensate.

Why is your treble all the way down?

The wider frequency range of the aftermarket tuner will cause high frequeny noise to be heard on FM. Some Alpine units (higher end) have the ability to change the FM reception. If you have poor reception it sounds horrible but if you have a strong signal, it is nice.
BTW, HD Radio=no static.

Treble was all the way down because you couldn't hear the static as much. I changed out the stereo with a Kenwood and the sound is still there but with this radio I can hear that its just bad reception. Not sure how to fix that =/
