Do you have it in a well ventilated cabinet with at least 3" space on top and sides?

It only has an inch on top but it's open

There's your issue...needs more space for air to circulate/heat to dissipate.

That sounds like your problem. My Onkyo TX-SR705 ran real hot while I had it on a shelf with an inch of clearance. I added a low profile fan that pulled the heat out of the top and expelled it out the front and back of the shelf. The internal temp dropped over 20F degrees.

It can be. Sometimes the source material is recorded or broadcasted poorly and can add audible distortion.

Does it happen very often with different sources?

so far just with my iPhone and I can only hear it on slower music I was thinking it was the Bluetooth because my kmc3 has some crackle sometimes but I was concerned because I could only hear it out one side

Switch the channels the speakers are on (just move the cables, each to the other speaker), and see if the crackle changes sides.
