Jaguar Xtype 2002 Stereo problem

My Jaguar stereo just stopped playing all 4 door speakers at the same thime. The tweaters still work as well as the woofer in the trunk. I have checked all fuses and they were ok. Any idea on this would be helpful. I've found on the web others who have experienced the same issue but no fix for it.

    I have the same problem as CUSTOMIZA ("I CAN BARELY HEAR THE WORDS TO THE MUSIC AND THE BASS SOUNDS LOUD WHEN IT'S AT 0. THE VOLUME IS ALL THE WAY UP AND I CAN'T REALLY HEAR THE MUSIC.") except that I CAN hear muffled music with the volume up.

  • Anonymous Apr 17, 2009

    one day I heard a "pop" sound and then the sound coming from the speakers was muffled and all base. Even turned up to the loudest of 35 there is just a muffled sound.

    I listen to talk radio or classical music, have never even turned up the volume as I prefer soft background noise. well, not as soft as it is now. the dealership is saying it is the speakers and that all 4 need to be replaced. the dealership also said they only know of one other problem like this in their history of the car.

    does the whole system have to be replaced?

    I also have a 2002 X-Type with a similar audio problem. I rarely turn the stereo on, not to and from work (pretty much Fridays only) and on 3 hour trips keep it turned off. It hasn't been blasted at high volume. I'm the only driver. This morning I turned it on and heard sound from the subwoofer in the rear shelf, all four door tweeters and the right rear passenger side speaker. Nothing from the front passenger side door or the driver's side rear door, or the driver's door speaker. After several miles the driver's door speaker began playing, the passenger's front and drivers side rear never did come one. This afternoon only the subwoofer and the right rear door speaker (and all four tweeters) are working. I noticed my car felt humid inside and it rained pretty hard yesterday. I read there is an amp above the CD changer in the trunk but mine has a bracket but no amp. Could the amp be what I see sandwiched above the fuel injection computer in the passenger side footwell? It has four or five plugs on it. Perhaps the speakers have accumulated water leaking in from the window lacing weatherstrip and has rusted the voicecoil in each of those not working. Either that or the metal post the voicecoil slides over and in very close proximity to has rusted and is binding the cones up pretty tight, preventing them from moving and voila, no sound. I have to make a trip this weeked but when I return I plan on removing the door panels, taking the affected speakers out and see if I can move the cone gently in and out or if they are bound up. I liked the frequency response of the factory drivers and hate to buy something else that will end up having a different frequency curve, altering the sound quality.

Check the connector at the back, if the speakers had gone altogether is likely to be the cause. If it is not the connector, test the audio output on speakers on the stereo, if it works check connector and wiring to speakers, if you have no audio the stereo is faulty.

I havew on 02 jag x-type with premium sound. My speakers progressively died. The scant information on the internet about this particular problem points to the amp and/or fiber optic issues. After following these leads and not finding the problem, I decided to talk to a Jag tech and he told me this model has had a problem with the speakers getting wet and shorting out. I have not yet pulled a speaker to find if this is in fact the case. I will let you know what I find.

I replaced all four of mine with replacements from
Originals were the blue cone Alpine speakers. The replacements were Philips but otherwise exactly the same size and had the identical plastic mounting ring on them. I hear no difference in sound quality and I have a sensitive ear for that. Mine is 100% again.

Dodge infinity

The Infinity system includes a CD/cassette receiver or a CD receiver in the dash, and a complement of 7 speakers: 3-1/2" speakers in the dash (left, right), a 2-1/2" center dash speaker, two 6"x9" woofers in the front doors, and two 5-1/4" speakers in the rear doors. You'll have to remove a section of the dash to install a new stereo, as you do with the non-Infinity system. You'll need a special adapter to connect a new car stereo to the Infinity factory amp

My sub woofer stopped working, please tell me where it is located so i can check the speaker and also check if power is going to it thank you very much joe

The JBL premium sound system has a large woofer in the bottom of each door, a small mid-range speaker next to the woofer, & tweeters next to the front door windows in the corner, & two full-range speakers near the rear seats. The woofer (not sub-woofer) handles all the low end. You can test the woofer by turning the BASS to max and TREBLE to minimum (make sure balance and fader are centered) and put your ear next to each woofer.
The woofer is usually the 1st speaker to have problems after 10 years or so. The outer edge of the woofer starts to degrade. You will usually hear a rattling sound out of the woofer when this happens.
NOTE: If no sound at all out of the woofer (tweeters are OK), you might take your car into a car stereo shop. They can put a speaker on the wires connected to the speaker and make sure your problem is not the radio.
PROBLEM: You can still hear sound out of the woofers but it is distorted
SOLUTION 1: Go to a car audio shop and have them install new woofers. These may cost $30+ each but the dealer cost is over $200 for each woofer (crazy).
SOLUTION 2: More involved but very cost effective. If you or a friend is handy, you can go to and order a new set of speaker outer rings (on the site they are called speaker SURROUND) that will replace the damaged outer rings on the woofers (replace on both woofers). They really work great and your speakers should last for many more years.
Hope this helps.

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban

You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.
