Question about JBL - MR4W Am/Fm with CD Player White

Open Question

Possible Blown Speakers?

How easy is it to blow JBL speakers? My speaker up front is working but sounds blown, however neither of my rear speakers in the boat (left or right) side seem to be working. Sometimes the right side speaker comes on, but sounds blown, however the left isn't working at all. Could it possibly be the radio? Even if the left side was blown wouldn't it still work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Why would only 5 of 6 speakers work after new head unit car audio install?

Either that speaker is not connected or, the speaker is blown. To test: Disconnect that speaker from the stereo and, using a 9volt battery, tap the speaker's + and - to the battery's + and -. You should hear a "pop". That would indicate that the speaker works. DO NOT connect the 9 volt battery to the stereo side of the speaker wire!!!! 3_24_2016_7_22_43_pm.png

Pioneer DEH-P47DH Front left speaker not working, if i press audio button, i get no option to adjust balance, just fader. left rear speaker works and plays as loudly as right rear speaker. Huh? bad...

Are you sure you wired up the head unit correctly? It is fairly uncommon for a audio output amplifier to blow out leaving 3 working speakers and 1 not working. So more than likely it is bad wiring or a blown speaker. Best bet would be get a digital multimeter and ohm out the speaker and see if it has continuity and is the same as the adjacent speaker. You could also try swapping the left/right channel wiring and see if the front right speaker stops working when connected to the left speaker output or vice versa.

Music sounds great!.But the entering calls sound horrible,Ican't

The volume setting on your phone affects the volume as well. Turn the phone up more. If this has already been tried or does not work the keep reading. I believe the call sound comes only through a front speaker (maybe the right front...not sure but I can check on this). If the music seems like it sounds good (with all the speakers) there might be a slim chance that the one speaker that plays the call is not working well. Use the fader and balance setting to switch to each speaker one by one and play sound through it (preferably a commercial with people speaking). See if one of the front speakers is blown or at least does not sound good for voice. This would mean replacing a speaker front set.

Left side crackling noise Blown channel?

Would check your balance settings. Make sure your not balanced more to left than right. Next i would try to swap over one of the speakers from right side to left to see if it crackles. If not replace left side speakers.

Stereo display works fine, but no sound to speakers.

The wires may have gotten wet and fried something in the sound output in the stereo.
