RobCarfa- alright ,you have no sound at all,so it is most likely you have a bad speaker.Are you running your factory head unit still,because they have an audio protect mode,as do most aftermarket stereos. On the cavalier and sunfires the rear speakers tend to short out first. try unplugging your rear speakers and see if you get sound back.If so one of your rear speakers or both are shorted.If you still have no sound it is possible afront speaker is no good.Try the rear speakers and let me know,I canhelp. cooltek Mar,12/08

the amp has gone tired, or

the wires have gone loose,

a multimeter would be needed to finalize or determine the cause

have you checked all your wiring as sometimes the wires can become loose at the back of the amp

Just clicks no power. Already checked for touching wires and proper cooling. This unit has worked fin in the same location for four years. Any other ideas?

I had a similar 'drop out' problem with my Yamaha RX-V3300.
Problem- Possibly loose speaker connections.
I have banana connections which I unplugged; tightened speaker terminal connections at back of receiver and then reinserted banana speaker connectors- which remedied problem. There is possibly some kind of loose connection either caused by the banana plugs or at speaker connectors at the back of the receiver, which was remedied (i.e. possibly temporarily) by reinserting the banana plugs.
I also previously thought something was wrong with the main on/off power relay which was 'dropping out' and replaced it, but then 'drop out' problem returned a few days later. I reinserted and tightened speaker connectors, which has it working again.

Sony HT 6500 speaker jack crackles as soon as speaker wire is connected to it. Tried new wire, new speakers...same thing. Tried to reset to factory settings...ONly L and R front speakers...

try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

Kenwood vr507 suts off when increasing the volume but only when the b speaker outputs are used

Check your speaker terminal for loose wires that may be touching the other post. Then check the same at your speakers. If it still cuts off, disconnect the wires at the receiver for "B" and turn back on. if the receiver remains on, you have either a bad wire to your speaker or a bad speaker. If you need further help troubleshooting, post a comment and I will help you further.

I can not figure out to wire my aftermarket radio in my 96 chevy

I bet you the "battery" supply wire touched a ground somehow and blown a fuse. This wire is responsible for the memory, since it always have battery voltage in it. Unless of course you take out the battery connection. I would recomend looking for that blown fuse first. If the stereo was hooked up right you should not have memory problem anymore and the interior light working again. If you still have memory problem, you probably have the "battery" supply connected to the red accesory wire, or you have them both together. Having them both together is not a bad thing, only that it should be connected to the "battery" supply. You can turn on your radio with the ignition switch off. If you hook both on the "accesory wire" you would loose all your setting and memory on the radio each time you turn off the ignition switch. Remember not to touch the speaker wire to the ground, because the amplifier in the radio will be fried up in a fraction of a second. Some good radio has a protection circuit for that, but don't bet on it. I am confident this will help.

Subwoofer not working

You must try to hook up another sub-woofer to you receiver and see if you are still getting output from the receiver. If you are, then you need to test the speaker again and see if you may have had a loose connection or bad connection.If the speaker still with not work you will have to have the speaker looked at by someone who can take it apart and check the condition of the speaker it self and the drive circuits. Many time the speaker will overload and burn small component is the drive circuits including the internal wires connecting the electronics to the speaker.If the speaker is damaged you will have to replace it with a similar type of speaker. This means looking on the speaker for its ratings. Ohms and voltage and current handling capabilities. You may be able to find a replacement or one similar and just replace it in the cabinet for the bad one. Of course if the speaker is under warranty and you did not abuse it, you should be able to return it for service. I hope this helps you with your problem.

New alpine speakers just stopped working on one side of my car and don't know what to do

Just check the wiring connection from receiver to your speaker,try to interchanges the left and right or to one side and to other side,so we know that the speaker is the problem .If happens still only one side is working even you interchange,then the problem is the speaker. If happens the speaker from left to right is working then the right to left is not works then the problem is the one side of the amplifier section is defected maybe the IC chip is busted or just loose,crack or cold solder joint.If cold solder only then reworks the solder joints in amplifier section.Then if the speaker is defected just reworks the solder connection of the speaker only .If still not working even you resolder the speaker then thats is the time you replaced the speaker...

Hope this may help;

Rear speakers dont work

check all your speaker wires probably they are broken.if they check good then you will have to get a tech to look at your set it could be your set output ic or transistor gone bad and need to be replaced.and if it is a old set buy a new one probably it wont worth the while to repair it.

good luck
