Hello.. I am sorry to hear you are having a problem. If you have had your speakers changed out recently, it could be that one of the speaker wires or terminals are touching a metal part of the car. What happens is the aftermarket stereo detects this problem and it shuts down all of the outputs to keep from burning up. So all of your speakers going out is a good thing because your stereo protection is working as it should. You can cut all of the speaker wires loose behind the radio and hook them back up one at a time and when the radio cuts off, that will be the bad line. I am assuming of course that you dont have them hooked to an aftermarket amplifier. Even if you have not changed your speakers, it is still a protection circuit that will detect a bad speaker as well. Sudden jolts, braking, etc. can cause a bad speaker to fault. Hope this helped!! Good luck with your venture!

I have 2007 GMC WITH A 6 SPEAKER STEREO IT ONLY WORKS ON THE FRONT TWEETERS UNTIL I DO SOMETHING LIKE STEP ON THE BRAKE THEN ALL SIX SPEAKERS COME ON PERFECTLY WORKING TILL THEY STOP


Let them try the repair, but I really doubt the technician will pull the door panel, they will likely check the wiring harness from the radio out to the speakers first.

Sounds like it could be a setup issue (software) inside the stereo itself. Maybe try and check out if the manual says any thing about the issue, if not im sure your local stereo installers could help you out.

My hx2 was workin fine until one of it went out..but the other seems to work fine still..is it because i hooked up wrong? i replace another one and the same side went out again..


Mine recently started doing this, the reason it is occuring is because there is a short in your amplifier that is drawing too much voltage and sending incorrect feed to your subwoofers. I wouldn't advise you to use your amp until it has been serviced. If you pull out your subwoofer from the box, you should smell the back of your sub, you should smell a crisp burnt smell from the voice coil internally being fried. If you want to learn more about your car stereo system you should check out www.bcae1.com.

Good luck!

Disconnect whatever wire is connected to the blue wire behind your head unit. Re-connect it to the blue/white wire, instead.
