Question about Kicker KX600.1 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Kicker 6 x 8's

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!

    I will try that tomorrow. It is awfully weird though, it doesn't seem that is possible with where the wires connect to the speaker connections (right under the cone), but that IS the only metal showing that I have seen. I appreciate your promptness and I will be more than happy to let you know once I try it.

This is Caused by the Connector on the Back of the Speaker Contacting Door Metal. Wrap Black electrical tape around the Connector and it should stop. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

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.
