    Speaker cutting out help

    I dont have a lot of car audio experience and just wanted to get an idea of what I might have going on. My driver side front speaker cuts out and will come back on sometimes when I turn up the volume and the bass hits a little and it will kick on. I switched the speaker to the passenger side and it worked fine so I know it is not the speaker. When I switched the front left and right speaker wires from the amp the problem switched to the other side and the driver side worked fine. So is that a wiring issue or amp issue or could it be something else? Thanks for any help

    speakers are front door speakers, infinty speakers around $100, nothing major

    Do you have a line out converter that goes from the back of your head unit to your amp?

    I will have to take it out and look because I am not really sure. Somebody hooked everything for me and it worked fine for a few months.

    Do you have a stock head unit?

    Check for a loose wire connection on the amp,as well as the RCAs to swapp on different channels to see if it may be a bad RCA.Check for exposed + speaker wiring for grounding out as well.try that out, and let us know if it proceeds
