    What could cause speakers to get quieter???

    A friend recently replaced his speakers with the exact same model (stock for his car) and he says they no longer bump with any bass at all...

    This was an occurrance that happened sometime *after* they were installed..

    He says they sound "weaker"



    EDIT: same setup... everything.. just replacing old stock speakers w/new stock speakers.



    My stock system in my 01 Dodge Intrepid ES sounds GREAT!!

    Which is why I'm replacing it with this:
    HU: Kenwood Excelon x790...............................................Wiring:
    Components: Infinity Kappa 60.7cs..................................Stinger 0 gauge kit
    6x9s: Infinity Kappa 693.7i...............................................Stinger Helix interconnects
    Main Amp: MA Audio M489I..............................................Sub(s): Yet to be determined!
    .................................................. ......................................Sub Amp(s): Yet to be determined!

    Running total: $949.65

    Make sure you have them wired in correctly.

    A lot of times it'll make the speakers move but little to no sound.

    take the door panel off. I BET the speakers are not installed properly.
    my guess is they are just screwed into the holes where the stock speakers were taken out. i've seen it done plenty of times at places.
