Follow instructions for wiring up speakers. If you don't have instructions https://soundcertified.com/speaker-wiring-diagram-guide should help Now, turn off the radio Double check your power source and wiring to find a short from the battery to the radio. Turn on the radio to see if it is now ok. I am almost 100% sure you have a short somewhere between your battery and radio. Make sure you have the pos. and neg.wires in the right place.

It sounds like your speaker has failed. I would recommend replacing the speaker. You can take the radio to a marine electronics repair shop for the repair and it should be about $75 - $100. If you have any other problems please email me: [email protected] You can always send it to me and we can repair it at my shop.
Im sorry to tell you, but they are telling you the true. Unless you have the factory Radio that comes with those speaker they are useless to you unless your car is the same make as the one that those speaker came out of. Each speaker have four wires coming form them? If they have only two wires on them you can use them in series with other in your home theather system.
Are you useing a digital coaxil cable? or optical cable?(you will need one of these connections to get 5.1 surround!) the white /red rca jacks will not do the 5.1 surround! (back speakers)
Please rate response!
if your instaling an after maket radio as in a kenwood or bose, and stuff just get a conection that goes from the stock radio hookup to the new radio. it keeps you from having to splice and cut your wires.......
