Re: infinity sound system for 2005 montero
There isn't an inbetween on sound. You either get nothing or you have something going wrong with your wiring some where. Have you tried hooking a speaker up directly to your cd player? Sounds like you have a speaker grounding out. Some times it's better to just open up your dash and unplug everything, (remove your fuse from the fuse box for your radio first). Start from scratch, if you have RCA's electrical tape them and any other metal components. That will create a grounding problem.
Hope this helps!

Check to see what type of stereo head unit is installed in the car first and foremost... next you're going to want to find out if the unit is powered and sending power to the speakers.
After you figure this out, you can then go about picking out a replacement set of speakers for your car. You also need to decide if you want to upgrade being that you'll be spending money on new speakers anyway. Audio is a very subjective matter so what sounds good to you might not sound good to the next person which is why I recommend you go to a stereo shop and listen to the speakers yourself with all the settings on the head unit its hooked up to flat (i.e. the EQ flat, the fader off, the balance set to the center, and soforth) as this will give you a better gauge of how the speaker sounds by itself without any help from the head unit.
Infinity is a decent brand and Im sure you'll be able to find replacements of the OEM speakers relatively easily if you want to go that route. You could remove the speaker, and probably check out Crutchfield which stocks most of the infinity line for your specific model of Infinity woofers.
Removal is a simple task of removing door panels if its in the doors, and removing some screws and undoing some wire connectors. All you'll need are some screwdrivers and possibly some pliers.
Schematics and specifications of your stereo system should be easy enough to find online by doing a search with google or bing.
03 and 04 G35's had a Technical Service Bulletin regarding the audio system circuit board. I would suggest calling your nearest dealer with your VIN number in hand and ask if the Circuit board has been replaced. If it has it could still be the issue. The radio unit itself could be bad too. I worked for an Infiniti dealer for 10 years and we replaced a lot of circuit boards, and quite a few radio units. On those vehicles, however the radio is not like the radio on most cars. The display is one part, connected to the console, behind that is the circuit board and behind the board is the radio, which is nothing more than a square silver box. More than likely this is going to be a dealer only repair as is the case with most of the newer Infiniti models.
