RE: Dell Inspiron 11 (3147, Mid 2014) makes crackling sound whenever sound is played

It's a new Dell and it has been making crackling sound since I got it.

Hello. If it made the noise right out of the box you probably should have returned it as defective during the brief return period.
 

Does it make the noise only when running on battery power or also when plugged into house current?
