The most likely cause of this problem is the stereo. Check to see if the issue is only with certain speakers or channels, or if it's with all the speakers at the same time. As long as the radio has never been changed, or the wiring tampered with, the radio would need to be replaced or sent in for service. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come by and inspect your car's audio system.
