Intermittant speaker failure

Hi, I have an '03 350Z with a factory Bose stereo. The speakers on the right hand side of the car, both front and rear (tested with fade) intermitantly come on and off, without any noticeable crackle. Initially I thought it would be a loose wire, however with front and rear having the same problem, I think it's unlikely..? It doesn't seem to be effected by travel/bumps, nor speed/revs. Any suggestions would be great, as it's driving me crazy! cheers, Matt

Thanks heaps for the interst pyro! Have discovered that I can isolate it even further to the cd player within the HU, as the speakers work at capacity with the radio on..? P.s. like the "what's up". reminds me of an old friend of mine from San Diego. Must be an American thing methinks??? Cheers, Matt (Australia).

What's up Matt, I would suggest it's either the head unit has a small electronic component in it that;s going bad, or when the factory wired that car they placed a wire incorrectly and it has chaffed it's insulation off over a period of time. Good Luck L8R
