    Wierd Speaker Problem

    Hey guys so i currently INSTALLED is my decent stock speakers hooked to an amp. I never had any issues and it sounds good. One morning going to work at 1/3 volume my amp shuts off and clicks into protection mode for like 5 secs and then returns on after i lower the volume. My left, front speaker went out. Or so i thought. I started playing with the fader and balance and found that if i drop my fronts i can crank my rear speakers just fine. So i figured my left, front speaker ceased up so i remove the panel to find out and the speaker moves freely and when i put volume to it i can faintly hear music. I ended up buying new speakersto replace but i dont want to install the new ones until i find the problem with the stock one. Cause if its wiring then i dont want to risk hurting the new system. Ive checked my connections at the amp and nothing is touching eachother. Any help would be awsome. Im trying to fix this over the weekand also.

    just go ahead and replace the speakers. my guess is there is a scorch in the coil. It moves freely but when it hits a certain excursion point it shorts out.

    Swap left and right channels and on the amp for the fronts and see if the same issue exists, if so, its the amp and not the speakers.

    The scorch in the coil sounds exactly like the problem cause i figured the whole speaker would freeze up. But i didnt think to swap channels to test. So ill try that first just to make sure. Thank you fir the fast response!
