Door speakers and tweeters and cuttign off

Whenever I turn the volume to about 25 on songs that have a lot of highs my door speakers and tweeters cut off. My 6x9s don't because they are connected to an amp. Anyone know what can be causing this?

Re: Door speakers and tweeters and cuttign off

Your door speakers cannot handle the power being sent to them. get some aftermarket speakers

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables

Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

Code on stereo for steering wheel is 0000

head units do not provide enough power to run subwoofers. instead, get yourself some new door speakers, and enjoy the difference. if not, you will need an amp to power the subs.

My DDX616 takes about 30 seconds before its completely booted up and ready to play music. Is this normal operation? It seems like all previous stereos I've had were pretty instant on.. I've also noticed...

Boot up time is correct, these are computer driven with a processor and such. The cut out is not. this is usually caused by over heating. if you notice the back of the unit should have a cooling fan and fins. You must have good air flow to the fins and the cooling fan must not be blocked, even a little will cause it to fail and get hot. If unit is getting cool air and nothing is blocking the fan/fins then it could be a impedance/resistance problem in the speakers. If your running unit with no amp/s then check 1st. polarity of speakers (+ to + and - to -) It really matters to have these correct! 2nd. Make sure they are all the same wattage aka 4o watts each or 60 Watts each max do not mix a 10 watt factory speaker with a 60 watt High end speaker period. A 40 Watt speaker is recommended by manufacturer due to demand on the internal amp demand. If your speakers are not the same wattage the internal tries to compensate for the problem but it cannot do so. Eventually the unit will go in to protection mode and will stop working till you fix the problem and reset the unit. If you are pushing the speakers hard at on vol 25 then you have the wrong size speakers on it. I recommend taking it to a shop spend a few bucks on it and get the correct speakers for the unit. Money may be tight but Walmart sales a good set of Sony polymer speakers that work very well with this unit I believe they are Sony Explode Series. Make sure that the wattage is no higher than 50 Watts! 40 Watts is best 30 Watts or less is HORRIBLE. 4 speakers should cost around $80.00, just make sure of the size speakers you need before you go! If your using amps or eqs or boosters of some sort there's a simple cheap fix for that.

Turn on the car or the stereo, volume increases to really loud!!

Set the volume for how loud you would like it to turn on, then push in on the volume button for about 20 sec, that will fix it

Uv8 some seakers dont work in dvd/cd mode

You have the wrong wire hooked up to turn on your amplifire. You used the blue wire but need to use the Blue/White wire!! That is an amp turn on wire Thje blue one is for a power antenna and goes dead when you put in a disc. The tweeters play because they are hooked direct to your Jensen. You'll be jamming in no time.

Pioneer AVIC-D3 Audio Problems

Sounds like a problem with the sound chip in the stereo. Disconnect the rca cables from the subs and check to see if the audio returns. If so. try using a different rca connection in the back. Also i think on them radio's if there is a built in sub drive you need to turn that off if you are using a amp to run the subs.
