My friend has a F150 with all Boston stuff. A boston sub (not sure which kind), boston speakers and boston amp. All this came in the truck when he bought it. He's had some problem with the rear right speaker. His SL80 blew, so now he has some cheap pioneers back there. But now for reason the speaker hums, even with no music playing. This is a pretty **** loud and annoying hum. The amp running his speakers is a GT-40. I can't figure out what it is, and why only that speaker is doing it.

Maybe some of the wiring got messed up?

Well, the wiring hasn't been changed. This whole scenario is weird to me. Could it possibly be the head unit?

It might be a pinched wire. It happens. recheck the wires.
Also, replace that speaker with another speaker. Any speaker. See if it happens.

Buck, it's called troubleshooting for a reason, man.

DO SOMETHIN'!!!

It isn't my truck so I can't really do anything.

Also, he blew the original SL80 in there. This was the only speaker that got blown. Now it's humming as well. So it leads me to think that it's not the speaker.

Btw, this guy is lazy. He won't do anything that requires work about it.
