Speaker problems with my Jeep stereo system wpss-1a

I bought this stereo at a garage sale and found the sound volume is extremely low. As I turn the volume knob the volume doesn't increase at all. I can barely hear it. Not sure if there is anything I can do, if it's worth getting it repairing or if I should just toss it out. Thanks!

Jeep boombox the volume wont go up and stays low I can here it.

First obvious question...did you check the batteries? If not put in fresh ones. Next, plug in the house connector to bypass the batteries. Does it work that way? If not, opening the case is a must. Go to the back of the volume knob and with a small alligator jumper put it between the pins to bypass the volume sweep. If it works that way, the switch needs to be replaced. Beyond that you can search for shorted wires going to the speakers.

KLH brand

I had also bought a KLH brand extension boombox as well and it had exactly what you describe. What was unique to me was that it was one that sounded good too. Yes all of the equalizer worked because i had tested each one out and at a volume to know if they really did. I did turn up the volume enough to get the response to proper ear level.Surround sound built in with switches there and the 3 speed rewind and inputs in the back. The company had technicians make the crossover so that it actually worked and provided better sound in the sense and not for reference purposes.
Just made sense to me though. A great radio no doubt. Good idea and that being different has made all the difference.I forget what model it was but yes it sounded better than some mini stereo that had a 100 watts to drive the cones. The reason is because you could change it on the inside by changing the wires so to speak. You catch? Send me an email to this address. in response to this.

That was a long time ago, 2008, but as I remember I went Through KNG America and purchased a new sound board for $28.00. U will have to have a solder gun and remove the old board and solder in the new one. It totaly fixed mine works great. Here is a link, as I recall I asked to talk to tech support, give the make model # ect of the radio, explain the prob, and ask for a replacement sound or tunner board( I can not remember what they called the part) In the event the link dose not work there phone # is (631) 389-5642. PS. kng stands for Kash N Gold Ltd, if u need to do some searching. Good luck, Hope I was of some help.

Speakers shorting out

at medium volume push the speaker cone with your hand ( be gentile and push it several times) if the speaker make sound again then the problem is the spaeker and must be replaced , if its possible switch the speakers from one channel to the other channel to see if the problem is the speaker or the output channel

Overall Problem - Panasonic RX-ED707 won't work properly at all

only 1 reason for that faults :

there is a flat connects the top panel which has all the controls with the other circutes in the stereo...
so you have to open it and care for the cd unit it damage easily then check the flat for loseness or cuts
it happened to me also and that works perfectly
good luck

Speakers don't respond to volume control

Try cleaning out the boombox. If you're still having problems then they might be bad speakers. Try replacing the speakers. I think they might need desoldering.
