how can you tell if a speaker is blown by looking at it? one of my rear speakers isnt working now, and i dont know why not.

You can test it with a multimeter set for continuity check. Disconnect the speaker first then put one probe from the multimeter on each speaker terminal. If there's no continuity, then the speaker is blown.

ok i tested the wires, i have 2 sets of wires going to each speaker. so 4 wires to each speaker, i think its cause i have a crossover or whatever...well i didnt get any power from one set. so i hooked up an old speaker i had laying around and it didnt play. i then took that speaker and hooked it up to the other set of wires for the speaker that works, and the speaker worked fine, so i figured that tweeter did a ****** job installing my headunit and maybe one of the wires wasnt connected, so i took out my HU and all the wires seemed to be fine. but i couldnt test them cause id have to take off the electrical tape, and i didnt have anymore to put over the exposed wire. so should i call tweeter and have them look at it? i think i have a 1 year instalation warantee.

ok well the speaker for sure works, but i still have no power coming from the wires. does anyone know the path of the wire from the rear deck to the HU so i can check to see if all the wires are connected, because sometimes the speaker will work, for instance if i went around a corner or something like that...

do you think it would be possible that my crossover may be blown or something?

Just take out the front deck, but have it still plugged in, turn the car on, and play with all of your connections. I re grounded my deck today, and most of the car speakers stopped working, and of course I dont' have them all labeled, so I had to play with each set of wires, in order to find which matched the speaker I wanted to work. Then I just restrip them, and crimp them, and it works.. That is what you should do, re wire that speaker.
