My drivers side front speaker isnt working anymore its making NO SOUND at all.. i checked the wiring at the speaker and the wiring behind the head unit. Is it possible that a speaker will make NO NOISE WHEN BLOWN? Or do you think its something with my head unit?
Sometime it is possible for a speaker to make no noise when blowin, just like sometime u will see smoke coming from the speaker when it blows but not always, have u tried replacing the speaker with another one?

Sounds like a wire is shorting out, probably in behind the stereo, but more likely in the back where the speakers connect. Check for something shorting out or a wire grounding out near the speaker.
You can trace back from there.
Other than that probably is the stereo.
Check the speakers if they work. Connect the speaker terminals using a short wire to a 1.5 volt battery (AA or any dry cell batter) and listen if there's a thumping sound when the wires are connected to the battery terminals. If there's no sound, your speakers are busted. If there's a sound, check if the wires are okay. Use the same method with the battery with the wires from the back of your stereo. Make a small cut on the wire and attach the short wires you used earlier.
When speakers go out on both sides at the same time, then usually the issue is with the stereo head unit. If it's wiring is fine, and it's fader setting is set to the front, yet you have no sound, then try this quick test to illuminate a speaker issue possibility:
Using a 1.5 volt battery AA or AAA size is fine. Just briefly connect the battery to the two speaker wires leading to the speaker you wish to test. You need to view the speaker and make sure it is moving in or out. If it operates, then your speaker is working and you can concentrate on your head unit issue.
Check the weak speaker for water damage--replace if so. Repair the source of the water leak. Tap the speaker back side with a knuckle--if good, it will make a booming sound. If damaged, it won't make any sound except for your knuckle. Hope this helps!
make sure the speaker wires in the car do not have one side grounded.the output on the clarion is a floating output and cannot be grounded.the best solution is to look at the wiring on each of the speakers,and match them out to the ones on the clarion.the most common colr code is white front left,gray front right green rear left and purple rear right.each speaker has a plus and minus.mixing them up will result in the speakers being out of phase and result in poor bass performance.i would wire the wires directly to the clarion using crimp connectors.the first thing i would do is power up the stereo out of the car to 12 volts,and using a speaker make sure you have sound coming out.the yellow wire which is the clock/memory is a must to be connected to constant 12 volts or no sound can result
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.
i have a 1994 eagle vision, with the premium sound system (infinity) and yes you do have a amp in your car if you have that sound system and its in the trunk of your car to the left while looking at your trunk from the back of the car :) also if you tryed putting in diffrent speakers other then stock thats your problem you have to rewire new speakers cant use old wiring because it goes threw the stock amp and for some reason the stock amp only works with the stock speakers :P
