View Full Version : What could be the problem?

I am having some difficulty determining the origin of a problem I am having. All of a sudden, each morning my driver door speaker is out. To get it back on, I adjust the balance and fade directly to this speaker. Give it a little volume and it kicks back in. Then I adjust the balance and fade back to normal settings and I am good to go.

I tried swapping the RCAs on the amp. I figured if there was a problem with the amp or the headunit, then the problem speaker would then be the passenger door, but it stayed at the driver door.

I assume all that's left is that the speaker is shot, there is a bad connection, or an off chance that there is something wrong with the speaker wire.

What would you do next? I figure the first thing to do is rerun some wire from the amp. Does it sound like the speaker has gone bad? It doesn't sound like its crackling, like its been blown. When it eventually comes on, it actually sounds fine.

Thank you for any insight you might have...

You tried switching the RCAs, try switching the speaker leads. That will rule out the amp as the problem. It will also check the speaker connection to the amp. If you still have problems, pull the speaker and check the connections.
