Yellow should be the positive. Try plugging in and reversing. The louder of the two is the one in phase and the correct wiring. If the speaker is pushing out when playing , it is in phase and correct also. The distortion problem could be a speaker going out. It may not be totally blown, but may be verging. Holding your hand out as wide as you can push against the speaker lightly. If there is a rubbing or scratching sound, the speaker could be damaged.If it moves freely, and there is no scratching its okay. Another possibility is the clean channel may have a channel volume set to high. Make sure the clean channel volume is set lower than the master volume otherwise you can get distortion on that channel too. Good Luck.
If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.
if front left is working it is possible u have a dry solder on ur right channel line. try resoldering or if u want to know exactly where dry solder is, shake gently every right channel components and connections. if resoldering does not work it is possible u have a faulty ouput amp for ur right channel. if ur not sure about this i suggest u get it checked by a qualified tech.
Sounds like you have the ground and live possibly the other way around from the head unit to the speakers. The reason for you hearing it from both the tweeter and the speaker is that the tweeter is connected in parallel to the speaker. Swap the wiring and try it.
Have you tried another speaker? If your left front speaker is in the door as in most cars, it gets banged around a lot. The driver's door gets the most use. This sometimes results in mechanical problems with the speaker, and can cause low sound or distortion. Take the speaker cover off (it may be necessary to remove the door panel in a factory installation), disconnect the speaker and hook another in its place. If the volume is back to normal you know it's the speaker. If not, check the radio and speaker wiring. If the radio itself is at fault because the amplifier is bad, it can be repaired at a service shop. The repair charges might be close to replacement cost these days, so you might consider a new radio if the estimate is high.
Check to be sure there are no speaker wires touching ground, and that the wires are connected in phase to the head unit.

The symptoms you are relaying definately sound like an internal amplifier problem. It is fading in and out for a reason - usually due to heat.
Have you had the radio bench tested (seperate from the car) to eliminate the car as being the culprit?
Since the radio was run with damaged speakers originally, the output or amplifier power supply on the amplifier may be bad.
As an alternative to repairing, I would suggest investing in a small 2 channel amplifier to power the speakers.
The radios claim 50W per channel, but in reality give 12-15W RMS power.
A dedicated amplifier with built in crossovers and gain adjustments will prolong the life of your speakers and add to the tonal qualities of your new speakers. Instead of turning up the volume on the head Unit, and sending out a distorted signal that will blow your speakers, an amplifier will give more CLEAN power to them, so it will be louder at a lower volume setting.
This will bypass the internal amplifier on the radio, and send a Low Level signal ONLY thru a set of RCA cables.
