    need help with car speakers

    hi everyone i'm new here and would really appreciate some help from anyone. so my problem is that i have two different head units in my 95 civic, i have an unknown model name in dash dvdplayer that stopped playing sound from my speakers two days ago, so earlier tonight i checked all the connections and everything seems fine. my door speakers stopped working but i could still hear my subs bumping, so earlier tonight i changed my dvd player to a dual deck that i have in my fiances car, i put it in connected all the wires and it worked for maybe one minute and then i turned the volume up a little bit and once again all the speakers stopped working but the subs continued. anybody have any ideas on why this would happen. thanks in advance

    I don't think for a 95 civic you need other harnesses to install but I would look into something along the lines of that. did you install it yourself?

    Re: need help with car speakers

    yea i installed everything myself, i've been a honda certified mechanic for the last 7 years and i only have an amp for the subwoofers, the door and rear deck speakers all go directly off of the head unit. i installed an aftermarket wiring harness for the dvd player and dual radio, both are put into the car one at a time not at the same time i know my original post made it seem like i had two radios in my car at once, but the thing that is bothering me the most is that everything was working perfectly fine for almost 6 months and then two nights ago my fiance put her ipod on my aux cable and turned up the dvd player to 15 which is 1/4 of the maximum volume and all four speakers cut out and only the subs could be heard. i dont know what could cause this i've never experienced anything like this in all my years of working on cars and fixing them.

    Re: need help with car speakers

    If we're talking about a 95 civic, I'd check the speaker wire runs throughout the car for deterioration. Also, may just be time to replace the speakers. I'm thinking they got clipped too heavily a couple times and now can't really take any kind of power



    Deck: JVC KD-A95BT
    Speakers: PHD FB mid, JBL MS tweets
    Amps: Boston Acoustics GT-2125, Zed Minotaur III (x2)
    Sub: 10" SSA ICON, IA Death Penalty 18" (coming soon)

    Re: need help with car speakers

    You dropped 500 on an unknown name dvd set, and a dual player? I'm sorry but you got ripped off man.

    Dual isn't a good brand, not trying to hate or anything but it's probably sending heavily clipped signals to everything and could ruin your subs too...

    Makes sense. No need to spend 500 on two new radios. The cz702, and 80prs have everything you could want without DVD, capable of running active and have some of the best sound quality for single dins. Other than that, some of the Pioneer lines... (the 3200DVD) comes to mind have DVD, bluetooth, ipod, etc. for under 300 and they have pretty good SQ too.

    With 500, you could get an amp, a headunit, and some component speakers that would blow the ones you have now out of the water.

    Your mp3/ipod only puts out a tiny tiny amount of power. Nowhere near enough to blow a headunit. I would take the headunit out and test some other speakers on it. Just run a wire from a speaker to where the other speaker is currently, if it works... check the speaker wires. In my girlfriends car, her speaker wire cut out on one side (split from the door between the panel and car) and both sides stopped working because it was shorting the stereo.

    Re: need help with car speakers

    yea i was going to check that or at least try and get a cheap dmm to see if the headunit is throwing power out to the speakers to see if maybe i just need to rewire the speakers themselves but i wont be doing that today lol its -15 with the windchill right now lol so maybe later on in the week when its slightly warmer out haha but first i'll check a speaker directly to the headunit
