I was extending one of the speakers when I (stupidly) let the bare positive and negative wires touch, while the stereo was turned on and playing. My dad is a electronics wizard and is stumped by this one because the speakers are fine as is everything else about the radio, and even the headphone jack works, but puts out no sound to the speaker jacks. I've researched this a bit and noticed other people have the exact same problem! (not caused by bare wires touching that is) My question would be do you think whatever happened could be repaired at home, a mission for my father, any good ideas for him?... or should i/is it even worth to send it on somewhere to get repaired?
Ive had the same problem with a RCA stereo i use. There areinline fuses in the amplifier section that will blow if something like this happens. If one blows it will make no sound. Replacing these fuses should fix this issue.

Re: My RCA RS2622 sound stopped working.
I'll need to look up your specific model to be sure, but I believe that the speaker outputs come from an amp pac. The headphones are driven by an opamp IC. The outputs are blown on this. If you can solder, you should be able to repair this. I'll look up the parts required and get back to you.

Sounds to me like you might have the polarity reversed. Meaning you might have hooked the positive to negative and the negative to the positive. Positive will will be red negative will be black on your receiver. On the speaker wires negative will always be solid black. Positive could be solid red, black with a red stripe, or black with any color stripe. Make sure you have solid black hooked to black and the other hooked to red. Hope this helps:)
cut the wireharnis clip that goes on the stock speakers off the wire with black strip is the negative the other is the positive or just test it by touching the bare wire to the positive and negitive on the new speakers it only works 1 way
To test speakers.A. Unplug speaker wires.
B. connect a 9volt battery to each speaker,touching one wire to the negative and the other to the positive breifly. The speaker should extend outward or inward, simulating the pumping of the cone. Depending on the polarity of the DC voltage hooked to the battery.
That's why it is important to wire the speakers correctly. Pos to Pos Neg to Neg.
You should know if the speakers or wired in series or parallele.
Google speaker wiring. Very informative.
try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.
The positives are connected together and the negatives are connected together. The two pairs of terminals are for convenience. You'd connect one speaker to a pair of positive/negative terminals and you'd connect the other speaker to the remaining pair of positive/negative terminals.
You need to confirm that you have a good signal feeding the amp. If you have another amp in the vehicle, swap the RCA cables between the amps to see if it makes a difference.
You also need to confirm that the speaker are working properly and that there are no broken connections in the wires. If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and touch the wires across a D-cell battery (for a fraction of a second), the speaker should pop. if it doesn't, check the wiring to determine why.
