Sound from drivers door speaker in my truck.

Ok i use to be able to crank the radio in my truck and the next state over heard it. and that was on factory speakers and i did get a different audio cd player 4 my truck. well one day the drivers side just started to crackle, so i figured i blew a speaker, put new speaker in, then i had NO sound, so out came the cd/radio player. went to wallmart, ya it was close, i wanted a mp3 player so i can get ride of 100 cds in my truck, and i got a cheap one, hooked it up,its a VRCD400-SDU plays am/fm receiver cd/mp3/wma player with USB port, Aux In & detachable face and it came with a remote, so well now i can talk loader than my sterio is playing, and and and the drivers side door speaker sounds like its on 2 and the passengers side is definatly louder, so what the frik happend i got a different speaker for door, only to discover it wasnt blown, i got a new radio whis is not load, at all, and my drivers side sounds like no sound, unless certain songs play that go from left to right. and i also dont have sound in the back, just crakling once in a while, and so we tore apart the door and took the sterio out and rewired it in and checked the wires what we could that wasnt bundled or behind the metal that u cant get at. im just pist i had awsume sound now i got granmas sound in there. i dont have alot of money to spend on equipment, something is just not right, and its driving me crazy. can i get a booster to make the sound at least a little louder, im serious u can yell loader than the sterio, before u couldnt hear anything. should i cut the back speakers off, i know that would put more sound towards the front, i am puzzled. i dont have any sub woofers or equalizer thingy hooked up to this. just the player and my speakers. thanks Creedy

Check your speaker wire, sounds like the insulation is cut somewhere and thewire is grounding out. that is why the crackling and low sound. your speaker wire is grounding out or wire is broken, start at the speaker and follow wire to find the break

Rear speakers have no sound

No speakers are not fused.. It is most likely a speaker wire that has gone to ground so they would have to be traced to each speaker to see if you can find the short

No sound from speakers in 2000 GMC Yukon? Whats going on?

1 Disconnect the trucks negative battery cable.
  • 2 Unhook the clip for the door's manual window crank with a hooked tool behind the handle (or rub a rag behind the handle), or for a power window, pry off the window switch assembly from the door handle with a trim stick and disconnect its electrical connector.
  • 3 Pry off all small panels and bezels on or near the door with the trim stick, including the triangular panel on the mirror mount and the bezel surrounding the door handle.
  • 4 Unscrew and remove all of the mounting screws for the door's inner trim panel then pull the panel out to detach the clips. Disconnect all remaining electrical connectors on the door panel.
  • 5 Peel off the plastic water deflector sheet from the door.
  • 6 Press down on the speaker's upper mounting tab while grasping the speaker, then tilt the speaker out of the door frame and lift it off the tabs on the bottom. Disconnect the speaker's electrical connector.
  • Connect the replacement speaker to the electrical connector.
  • 8 Secure the speaker to the lower tabs and pivot it into the mounting hole, clipping it in place with the door's mounting tab.
  • 9 Press the plastic shield back into place on the door.
  • 10 Reconnect the trim panel onto the door, connecting all needed electrical connectors and engaging all its clips, then apply its mounting screws. Reconnect all smaller panels and bezels to the panel.
  • 11 Reinstall the window crank or control switch with its clip or electrical connector.
  • 12 Reconnect the black battery cable onto the negative terminal.

    Rear speakers will not work

    # 1... check the balane and faders... make sure they're all centered, next... take the radio oud... and get you an old speaker... strip 2 wires of the same color... and connect the speaker... if you have sound... tape the wires... and try the second set... what ever you do... do not... let the wires touch... and do not... connect the speakers to ground... you will fry the outputs in the radio, if you find a set of wires with no sound... chances are... you blew out the outputs in the radio, now... after you determin that all the wire seta have sound... the next thing to do is pull off the panel for the back door, first thing you do is look for any screws... if you find some... remove them... once you have them out... put one hand on one side of the door... and just pull gently... it'll come off with a very little effort... then disconnect the wires for doorlocks... the windows... and all that... then disconnect speaker wiring harness... get a 9volt battery... and touch the speaker terminals... and you should hear a pop... if you do... the speaker is good... if not... replace... then just reverse the procedure to install... good luck to you

    Logitech X-240 Sound Problem

    I live in the Netherlands and i hear radio from UK, Russia and other languages. It's true it's in evening. Weather here now are rain in thunderstorm, i thought thunderstorms maybe could be the problem. Yesterday evening i heard nothing of the radio station. Hearing that radio staions is against FCC rulles. So it's possible to complain about it to radio stations. Im going to contact Logitecht tmorrow about this problem. I keep you updated.
