Often time, if a speaker wire gets "grounded out," in other words when a speaker wire gets shorted to the chassis of the car, it will prevent sound. Best thing is to check through the system with a multimeter

"2000 Buick Park Ave. rear speakers on deck lid stopped working nine speaker system all others work

First, check the fader on the stereo, then, check the wiring from the stereo to the amp and from the amp to the rear speakers. The amp controls all speakers, not just the rear so it seems that it is still working therefore the fuses must be good. If you have access to any other speakers, I would try plugging one in in place of one of the rear speakers and seeing if it works then you'll know if it's just the speaker or not.

My 1994 e150 sound system sounds puny compared to what I believe stock should be. All the speaker work there just isnt much volume, bass, or treble. Is there an amp that boost the sound? where is it?

well first i would change all the mid speakers out to kenwood speakers and not the cheap ones cause the cheap ones are like stock speakers the more higher priced ones like the 80 dollar ones are equal to 300 dollar speakers then you should get a 2 channel or 4 channel MTX amp each speaker can take 150watts. your system would be alot better than stock. if anything look on that would be the best place if you dont want to go to a car stereo shop in your area. if you plan to keep the deck stock then you need a hi-lo adapter which will hook up to the right or left rear speaker and the remote wire needs to go to the ignition wire behind the deck

Subs fading out briefly but speakers working fine

Holy mackerel you have a ton of power i bet that ****** is loudddddd-sounds like your charging system isnt quite keeping up with the amount of current draw that your amps can pull.Upgrade your alternator and look into a dual battery system using an isolator-that way your alt will charge both batteries but your amps will only pull off the one battery-you can look online into how to set that up its not that hard for someone that has managed to install the gear that you already have- Some folks if not most would encourage you to get some sort of capacitor to store power blahblahblah-BUT a dual battery system has waaaaayyyy more storage capacity than a capacitor does-check out the pro competitors online they arent using capacitors to run their stuff they use banks and banks of batteries to get their power-brother you need more juice

No sound

you may have a blown speaker...many cd decks will shut off their audio circuits when a speaker is blown to protect from shorting out. Go to the back of the deck and try disconnecting speakers one by one. You will have to turn the deck off and back on each time. Hope this helps!
