Kenwood Car stereo receiver

Just installed a new kenwood receiver KDC-x492 to replace another that i thought was bad. The old one worked fine until it just wouldnt work right anymore. The volume was real faint and you could'nt turn it up, no bass or tone at all. THe speakers that I'm using are a fairly new set of Rockford -Fosgates 6x9's that worked well until this problem occured. The new one that I put in is doing the same thing With the speakers being the common denominator. + and - are hooked up properly and I'm sure my wiring is correct.I've disconnected 1 speaker at a time and no change. What could be wrong? Need some help. Thanks

Sounds like the woofer cones are blown, no fix for that except to replace them.

You did the right thing disconnecting one at a time. Are both speakers doing that? It is a little strange that both would go out at the same time, but stranger things have happened.

If you have an extra speaker laying around someplace that you know is good (even a home stereo speaker), try disconnecting both speakers and connect the one good one to see if it sounds OK. If it sounds good or at least normal, you have some bad speakers. If the one speaker still sounds bad, you have a problem with the speaker wiring someplace. You might even need to run new wires just to rule them out as a problem.

If the problem is not the speakers, then this is a very strange problem indeed!
Good luck and I hope this helps you. If you need more help just reply back after you checked them out a little more.
