Question about Pyramid 4 X 10 SPEAKERS Car Speaker

1 Answer

New car speakers cut out when I turn up the volume.

I recently replaced all my factory speakers with new ones. The problem I'm having now is that when I go to turn up the volume, the driver back speaker cuts out making the whole system go low. Can someone help.

Re: New car speakers cut out when I turn up the volume.

You just have to check all of the speaker wiring.It's a wire touching somewhere and it will do that till you fix it. What it is is just where the negative wire which is the ground for your spreakers it's touching the positive wire which is know as a power wire.When this happends it lowers the frequency of the volume which will cause the speakers to cut out and volume level to drop.

Only subwoofer works at high volumes

It could be your receiver but you can try seeing if the Woofer has a input knob at the back, maybe this down, or maybe.if possible turn down the amount going to the woofer with your receiver.

I need to replace a speaker in my buick cetury how

ok before i start if one factory speaker blew and your planing on replacing them all with a after marker speaker this is what you do.

remove the door panel then with that gone you should see a speaker just take it out the factory speakers may have a clip just cut it off and figure out witch one is positive and witch one is negative and if you hook it up wrong it wont hurt the speaker

its the same way with replacing the factory one just DONT cut off the clip

Rear deck speaker install

I'm assuming that you have left the original wiring intact? If this is the case then it's a pretty simple thing to do. There should only be 2 cables one for each speaker & each cable will have a positive & negative polarity. Once you have securely fixed the speakers into place (usually screwing into place through the mounting holes provided) you just need to attach the wires to the speakers. If your car has manufacturers plugs on & don't match the speaker ones (quite often the case now) simply cut them off & replace with spade connectors of the right type/size. The most important thing is to get the polarity the same way round for both speakers!If you get them reversed you will NOT get any bass. Also remember with any new speakers they need time to run in & sound their take it easy with the volume control for the first 20hrs or so of play if you want them to sound great & last longer!

Car Audio Cutting Out

stereo is detecting a short , or low load on speaker wire and or speakers .Go behind car stereo , disconnect all speakers and apply a known good speaker to one of four wires and see if volume works normally ..If it works use same speaker on all outputs one by one ..If all are okay then you should figure out what speaker and or wires are causing issue..Also make sure your ground is okay

No sound from my 2005 Corolla speakers

The likely problem is that somehow one of the wires going to the speakers has "grounded out", meaning a wire for some reason is touching the car chassis, therefore shorting out the circuit the same way a lightning rod conducts the lighting into the ground, instead of your home.

A decent car stereo installer should be able to determine the problem. Either it's grounded out, which they can use a meter and connect the probes between ground and each of the 8 speaker wires to determine -or- the radio is faulty, and a new radio can be as cheap as $150, +fit kit, + wiring harness. Don't buy a factory radio replacement because it is a huge rip off and aftermarket ones are much better.
