Alpine retrofit troubleshooting

Hi, need some urgent help so I can get the car put back together before work. Fitted the alpine retrofit today for my 330d LCI E90. Followed the instructions supplied completely however I am getting a crackling noise from the front tweeters and the mids. My car had the base system with no nav or tweeters before.

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

The wires were making contact with each other. Lesson for today... dont ever attempt a diy with little kids running around. Little buggers.
