Howdy...after getting really tired of this



I swapped it for this yesterday



2004 LX. Great condition. One owner. Little over 100k miles

I do not miss the Corvette. At all. :thmsup:

So...why am I posting this in the audio section? Glad you asked. :)

As you may be aware, there are six speakers in the LX. 2 tweets on the dash, 2 regular speakers in the front doors, and 2 regular speakers on the rear deck. Factory single disc CD player. All stock.

The passenger side door and rear deck speakers are not making any sound at all. Since it was easy to get to I disconnected the speaker in the trunk, cleaned the connector, and hooked it back up. No change.

However, the passenger side tweeter as well as all three speakers on the driver's side of the car are working fine. As I understand it from reading through the forum, the factory head unit has only a left a right output shared among each side, correct? In other words, left and right channel only and NO factory external amp.

Before I go and start taking things apart, I wanted to see if the most likely culprit for the speakers not working is the speakers themselves and not the radio. I'm of the opinion that it's probably both of those speakers are toast. What say all of you? Thanks in advance for your help!

Only one way to find out, text the variables. Also, check the balance and fade settings. Seems possible it may have been messed with. If all that doesn't check out, hook up a new speaker. If the new one doesn't work, it sounds like the HU.

Just some basic troubleshooting from my experiences.

I guess I should have mentioned that. The balance / fader settings were the very first thing I checked.

I was planning on stopping by a local car audio dealer / installer on Wednesday to have them hook a speaker to the existing connection to test it. I was hoping to at least get an idea as to which was the more likely culprit and to verify that there is only a left / right output and no factory external amp.
