I have an 04 dodge ram 1500, everything is stock except the two 6x9s in the front doors that I just installed. Kenwood kfc-6966R, turned system on and they sound horribly scratchy / distorted / muffled / blown at any volume and any bass or treble settings.. ram doesn't have infinity sound system either, truly a very stock setup, was just looking to replace a blown speaker... what did I do wrong, please help!?

Check polarity and make sure you have the positive and negative correct.

next, pull one out and try a different speaker. If it sounds the same, probably need a new headunit.

Ok, so I took the passenger side door panel off futzed around with the speaker, didn't change anything at all. Speakers both sound better already, maybe a tiny bit of distortion, but if I put pressure on the cone with my finger it sounds way better, did I potentially buy a pair of already blown speakers?

Yeah if you push in on it and it sounds better. Bad voice coil
