Default new battery messed up stereo

So i got a new battery for my ranger and when i got it hooked up and started the stereo: cd player, mp3, am/fm- all sound is very weird sounding. its kind of hard to explain. I can hear the music but only the background not the main vocals. has anyone ever heard of this?!? it happens with playing cds and mp3s as well. thanks for any suggestions.

Is this the factory unit? I've seen/heard similar even on after market units. If somehow there was a surge in power to the unit (if its the factory, it wouldn't take much) you can fry any number or small circuit boards or transistors on the units board. More than likely your speakers are fine. I would just put in an aftermarket head unit and enjoy it.
