    Help with new speakers!!!

    I just replaced my factory speakers with two pairs of pioneer 6x8s, A pair in the front door panels and the rear. They were working fine and after 5 mins or so the rear left speaker wasnt producing sound, and I unscrewed it and replugged it in and it started working, and a minute later both the speakers in the rear cut out. My head unit is saying failure. Help me please!

    Maybe you pinched one of the wires when you installed them, and now its arcing out on the metal?

    How might I fix that? I Unplug them and replug them in to the speaker and by the time im halfway down the street my sony head unit states failure and it stops working. My front speakers are working beautifully though, and I installed them at the same time.

    I would look at the speaker cabling and see if there are any breaks in the jacket that could possibly make contact with anything. Or even if there is something that could be making a connection with the speaker terminal.

    You can't have speaker wire, terminals, leads, etc touching metal or you will have FAIL.

    Absolutely, only, and nothing other than new wire.
