After market 6 x 8 speaker problems

Today I installed (4) after market Kicker 6x8's in a 2000 Ford Ranger. I also purchase after market wire harnesses so I did not have to do any wire stripping, crimping, or splicing. I literally took off all the panels, unscrewed the speakers plugged the + and - on the speaker terminals, and clipped the harnesses together. Simple, right? 
Far from. They keep cutting out. I am pretty sure the problem lies within the passenger front door. If I use the back of my fist and lightly hit it, they all turn on. I have taken the speaker out 3 times, flipped it the other way, and checked for any metal grounding.
At this point, I am at a total lost. This was the easiest and most professional install I have ever done and still ended up with a problem. Any thoughts, suggestions, and/or ideas would be much appreciated!

    Thank you for your help. I think you are right. On Saturday we took the door panels back off and removed the speakers. It seems like the transistors on the tweeters had bare metal exposed. Our assumption was that as the speaker vibrated, it would ground out on the basket. We put electrical tape behind the transistors so it wouldn't touch and also taped around the speaker opening on the door to prevent any grounding problems that could be caused. So far so good (knock on wood). Thanks again.

It sounds to me you have a short in the wiring or an internal short with-in the speaker itself

Get an adaptor wiring harness. It plugs directly into the plug in the truck. The wires are all labeled and you won't have to hack up the wiring in the truck. You can get the adaptor whereever they sell car stereos.
