Re: intermittent problem no sound
Double and triple check your connections. I soldered my connections on a speaker a little while ago and I found out that it only looked soldered and it was alittle loose and would cut out. Also you could check a site out, installdr.com. You should be able to find out the wire colors for you speakers there. Although I don't think that, that will cause a big problem. If you are listening to music at loud volumes, I would also recomend an aftermarket amplifier. It adds so much more that a factory amp can. Just food for thought. Good luck.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

No. The 5x7" speaker is smaller than the stock 6x8" speaker. In order to make this work you will need to create a thin baffle that can be screwed into the mounting holes of the OEM 6x8. A table router and some 1/8" hardboard works great for this. Cut out the new baffle to accomodate the 5x7 and you are good to go.
sounds like the wires maybe crossed try this 1st fade your stereo left or right if it sounds better with one speaker playing your polarity is backwards unhook 1 of the speakers and reverse the wires hope this helps
Hi.i cant help you with the rear dash but the speakers are my expertise. They are 6x8 in the front and back without the shaker 500 or 1000 system. If you have the shaker 500 or 1000 it will still be 6x8.
More than likely with a 2003, the speakers that cut out are in the door or doors. Do they cut out of both speakers?
If they cut out of one, then you may have an intermittent speaker ( the wire to the cone becomes partially connected)
If both speakers turn off at the same time and you hear NOTHING on all speakers, then you more than likely have an intermittent connection on the radio itself and probably replacement is probably cheaper than fixing the radio.
One more thing Factory radios sometimes have an amplifier in them. Sounds funny but they call the Radio in the dash the Head Unit and the amplifier is buried in the dash. You could have a bad amplifier or a loose power connection to it, but that is very unlikely.
Go to Crutchfield.com and go through their application charts. It will tell you what size car stereo and speakers will fit in any car. I have shopped with them many times over the years and been very satisfied with their prices, advice, and service.
