I think you have a bad capacitor in the driver stage of your amp. That cap looks like this, , and a good one looks like this .

Maybe something fell in there, clean it out with a vacuum. Bad caps don't start their cracklin until it gets hot and warmed up.

Look for expansion on the top of electrolitics (caps), looks like a bulge, or look for fluid leaking from one.

Trouble is, a bench tech has to check all them caps to find it, unless it looks like this, , then it's in and out.

Hope this helps,
