The most basic thing to check is the front/rear fader control on the stereo. If its electronic, you gotta find the function on the control pannel. Make sure its set to the middle range between front and rear.

If thats all good, you will have to slide out the stereo and test the outputs from the unit. If there working, the problem is in the wiring or speakers.

If your system has an external amp, you will have to look at that as a possible problem as well. You gotta find the wires and test the outputs.

I had some kicker 6x9 cs693 installed in my 2002 camry rear deck and when they returned the car the spearkers are not producing much sound or bass. I am using factory stereo and also the factory 6x9 on...


first check to see that the fader is not programmed to the front speakers fading it rear might solve your problem, second if your stereo has a 4 ohm load requirement at the output and your new speakers are 8 ohms this will cut the power output in half, your best bet is to get an amp if these do not solve the problem.

How do I reset my pioneer deh-x6500bt car stereo and produce sound from my rear speakers?


a 'reset' of the entire stereo should be able to be accomplished by disconnecting the battery for several minutes: alternately if you remove the faceplate there should be a reset button you would need a pen to press, however you should be able to find the EQ levels and set the balance and fade I think it is so the rear produces sound, if that is not the case, I would check wiring to make sure nothing is loose. I suppose it could only be a software/firmware problem with the stereo itself however, if you have had this happen before and it was fixed without tinkering with the wiring.

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 crutchfield.com 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

How do you install it correct


the audio source's output should connect to the inputs of the TS-WX11. caution on power supply connection: don't reverse the polarity of the positive and the negative wires.
Remember also to set your HU's output in order for it to work. If it does not work yet please give the details on your HU and other devices being used.

I have a fujitsu am/fm/cd/ tape player out of a 93 camry and would like to put it in a 95 camry but the color code for the wiring doesn't match and thats what I need , can you help Thanks John


Hello jrhauber,

The '93 and '95 Camry have identical color codes. Likewise, the vehicle harness connectors are the same.

Car Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Blue/Yellow
Car Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Gray
Car Radio Ground Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Illumination Wire: Green
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Black/Red
Car Stereo Amplifier Trigger Wire: N/A

Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Purple
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green

You can purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plugs into the OEM radio. The part number you need for a 1995 Camry is Metra 71-1761 available here for $9.99.

Hope this helps.

Trouble connecting marine amp to stereo


Hello lizskates814,

You can use either the high level (speaker) or the low-level (RCA's) inputs to the amp, but not both. Choose whichever one sounds the best or is more convenient to install and leave the other disconnected.

Hope this helps.

Thump THA-1000 compatability with GM stereo


If you're using the speaker output of the head unit, you need to use either the high level input (if the amp has one) or use a Line Output Converter (LOC). The LOC is generally a better option.

I don't know if they are still in business.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Stereo System Not Working


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

Installing PA5422 in two channewl mode


Since your first paragraph is leading to your question paragraph, I'll adress that. "what is the difference amongst the MONO/STEREO/L+R switch options available on both Front and Rear AMP X-over Sections of the PA5422?" Mono is same sound output on each channel, stereo is what you want as it gives out stereo sound, and L+R is most likely blending the channels together.
