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

I aquired Bose Acoustimass 15 surround sound through home purchase. Hooked wires up to reciever and hdmi to tv and i got nothing. my question is, how do you turn on the sub? just plug it in?


Hey Any chance you have the Acoustimass 15 II or III? The first Acoustimass 15 has a switch. The II and II models turn off and on when it receives a signal from the source you are using. Amplifier, ect. All you need to do is make sure everything hooked up correctly and plug it in.

Kenwood sw-35ht Replace with a kicker sub


I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.

We have a stereo that is 6 ohms and we just purchased two floor speakers that are 8 ohms can we use these together or do the ohms have to match


Are you saying you want to know if 8-ohm speakers will work with a components spec'd for 6-ohms? Yes. There is never a problem with having a higher impedance than specified. Drastically lower impedances MAY cause problems.

Looking for a control pod.


I recently had a similar problem. In my case the left speaker had no sound. Finally traced the problem to a broken wire inside the control pod plug, which I destroyed by dissecting it. For those who have the experience, or know someone who does, purchase a new plug, which a Mini DIN 8 pin (RS-422 standard). It should be available at any good electronic parts store. Solder new plug on to cable, which requires a fine electronic soldering iron and a fair bit of skill (the wires are very fine).

Look at the plug (from the rear); you will see it comprises a top row of 3 pins equaly spaced; a middle row of 3 pins (there is room for 4 pins but one pin is missing just left of centre); a bottom row of 2 pins. I numbered these as follows:

8 o 7 o 6 o

5 o 4 o 3 o

2 o 1 o

The wire from the controller comprises 8 coloured cores and a bare core. The wiring of the eight cores are as follows:
DIN CORE PCB
pin 8 - brown 8
pin 7 - red 7
pin 6 - orange 6
pin 5 - yellow 5
pin 4 - green 4
pin 3 - blue 3
pin 2 - white 2
pin 1 - black 9
body clamp - bare wire - G

In case your coloured cores vary from mine I have also listed the pin each one goes to on the printed circuit board plug, which will let you identify the colours.
