Buzzing from OEM sound system

I have a high-pitched buzzing from some of the speakers. It seems to be the right channel
It changes pitch along with the pitch of the music.
Iím pretty sure itís either the head unit or the amp but which one?
This is the business radio and HK system

Is the audio system stock? That is, have you changed any parts of the audio system? Iíd inspect the area where the amp is located. Thatís behind the left side vertical cover in the trunk. Make sure the 2 connectors on the amp are tight. In the end the amp may be the cause.

Ok thanks the system is stock.
So itís the amp that usually goes bad and not the head unit?
I remember reading somewhere there is a company that rebuilds the amps?

Yeah, itís likely the amp. You could check eBay for used amps.
