I bought a used Luxman Stereo Receiver r113 and now my one Cerwin Vega speaker is crackling and distorted after 10 minutes of playing for the first time


As it's a stereo receiver and you specify one CV speaker, hook the speaker to the other side of the receiver and see if it still has the same problem. If so, hook it to any other audio source you may have. If it has a problem on only one side of the receiver, the receiver has a blown channel. If the speaker distorts on both sides of the receiver and on a separate audio source, the speaker is blown.

88 scottsdale 1500 only 2 front speaker stereo with under dash factory amp, I need to know where and what color my speaker wires are? Hooking up aftermarket stereo


wires for speakers are paired and smaller wires. if you touch the ends of the wires to a aa battery the speaker hooked to them will buzz and this does not damage the speaker

Hooked the stereo up and got power to but no sound coming out speakers but i try home speaker it work so what did i do wrong ?


if im understanding correctly what you wrote. you hooked up the headunit to the car and no sound from speakers, then you hooked up a single house speaker up and that speaker works fine. the Ohms on the car speakers might be too high, but most likely sounds like the wires to the speakers are bad.

Im trying to hook up my radio to a 93 ford mustang and ive got power and i got the speakers hooked up right but i dont have any sound


Is the radio powering up?
Have you tested the continuity to the speakers (disconnect speakers and use multimeter on low ohms across speaker wires, you might also hear a crackle if speakers are ok)?
If you dont have a meter use a small preferrably used battery (take one out of the tv remote) and dab across the speaker wires briefly, you should hear a click from the speaker.Make sure the speaker is disconnected from the radio when you do this!
Have you connected the ground?
Did the the radio ever work?
Have you connected the antenna?
have you tried any old small speaker hooked up to the radio output?
Ahhh questions questions....

AUDIO ISSUES !!


you have probably blown a few speakers... all of the speakers are in the door panels. the easiest way to test them is to hook a known good speaker up to that connector, if the good speaker works you have a blown speaker. you should check to see if someone hasn't adjusted the fade or balance in the stereo settings first, the door panels can be a pain to get off and break very easily...hope this helps good luck!

One speaker works all the time the others only sometimes


Could be intermittant wiring issue or the speaker itself.

If you have another spare car speaker you can hook up temporarily, I'd start there. Disconnect one of your "bad" speakers and hook up a known good one. If the temp. speaker works OK all the time, then you know you wiring is okay.

Let me know if more ?s!

Rear speakers don't work


Sir,
I do not want to insult you in any way, but I must ask just in case it was overlooked! First check to be sure that the speaker settings on the stereo were not set all the way to the front. If that is not the problem, you can hook another speaker you know works to the wireing to the rear speakers to check to see if it is the speaker or the wireing. If you hear sound from the speaker you know works, then your speakers in the car are bad. If you do not hear sound, then it will be from the wireing. Next is the more difficult part. You will have to pull the stereo out and can splice into the wires. Hook the good speakers up to the splice and check for sound. make sure you know for sure the wires you splice into are for the rear speakers. If you still hear no sound, then it is more then likely a problem in the stereo itself. If you do hear sound then there is a problem in the wireing somewhere and may be easier to just run new wires to the rear speakers.
