Testimonial: "All wires are connected right. The blue power antenna wire is not connected. Does it serve as a cutoff switch, and does it need to be connected to 12 v positive?"

Rear speakers don't work after new head unit


There could be several reasons why the head unit for your car does not work. The most likely issue is that the head unit is not compatible with your stereo system. You can consult your vehicle owner's manual for speaker issues.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Toyota Corolla 1997 I've installed kickers in the rear (KS series to match the front)... had those going for a couple of weeks with no problems. Yesterday i went to install the KS400 series in the...


take one of the front speakers out and pull out the head unit and unplug a set of audio wires(front right, front left ect.) and hook it up directly from the radio to the speaker there for bypassing all the cars wires. If it works then there's a problem with the car's wiring(maybe an inline amp). If it doesn't work, then try a known good speaker from somewhere else(home stereo speaker for example) and connect it to the radio, if the speaker works, your radio is fine and there may be a problem with the speakers. If it doesn't work then you have a problem with the head unit.

No sound from cenre and rear speakers


Is there an output section for the speakers on the back of the receiver? if so, make sure to properly install the speaker wires into the correct connectors. It should be the same as for the front speakers. If not, then you will not be able to install center and rear speakers.

Make sure there is nothing wrong with the speakers, or the wires them selves. If you are positive that everything is installed correctly, try using a new batch of speaker wire. If the speaker wire is pre-installed or already attached to the speaker from the factory, you might have to call and report a faulty product or try to find the break in the wire yourself. To make sure the speakers are working properly, be sure to plug them into the same connector as the front speakers to see if they receive the signal. if noise comes out of them when plugged into the front slots, then the speakers themselves are fine, and it is an issue with the wires or the unit itself.

Last, if it is not the speaker, or the wires, then you will have to remove the cover from the receiver or remove the wire inputs from the back of the receiver and make sure there is no connectivity problems with them. There might be a frayed wire, or a wire that has come loose, or a soldering issue. If so, you can try to tackle it yourself, or you might have to bring it into a repair shop, or call Sony.

Hope this helps at all. :D

Last, if you have tried new wires,

Either the balance is off on the head unit, or the the out puts (in the head unit) for the rear speakers are blown.

Volume fade


Check to be sure there are no speaker wires touching ground, and that the wires are connected in phase to the head unit.
Front Speakers 5 1/4" Doors Left Front (+) Green Left Front (-) Black/White Right Front (+) White/Red Right Front (-) Black/White Rear Speakers 6" x 9" Rear Deck Left Rear (+) Pink/Red Left Rear (-) Pink/Blue Right Rear (+) Pink/Light Blue Right Rear (-) Green/Red

The symptoms you are relaying definately sound like an internal amplifier problem. It is fading in and out for a reason - usually due to heat.

Have you had the radio bench tested (seperate from the car) to eliminate the car as being the culprit?

Since the radio was run with damaged speakers originally, the output or amplifier power supply on the amplifier may be bad.

As an alternative to repairing, I would suggest investing in a small 2 channel amplifier to power the speakers.

The radios claim 50W per channel, but in reality give 12-15W RMS power.

A dedicated amplifier with built in crossovers and gain adjustments will prolong the life of your speakers and add to the tonal qualities of your new speakers. Instead of turning up the volume on the head Unit, and sending out a distorted signal that will blow your speakers, an amplifier will give more CLEAN power to them, so it will be louder at a lower volume setting.

This will bypass the internal amplifier on the radio, and send a Low Level signal ONLY thru a set of RCA cables.

Good Luck!!
