Stupid Question...

Is there a way to convert 3 ways to 2 ways? A while back lowflyn told me that my speakers cutting out in the back was possibly due to the new 3 ways I put in place of my lows. I don't really want to buy new speakers again, so I was wondering if it was possible to convert them.

Re: Stupid Question...

Basically. I know that sounds strange but I've been told that my amps (factory) don't support 3 ways in the place of the lows. But they would support 2 ways instead. Is that true? And is there a way to convert them?

Re: Stupid Question...

i don't believe thats the case.. I'm still trying to think of what is causing your problem.. I originally thought you may have grounded a speaker wire and shutting down the amp when the volume is turned up, but if you used the factory connectors, that should rule that out.. The number of "ways" that a speaker is has nothing to do with your problem..

How do the speakers sound before they cut out?
Gently press on the cones and see if they are both free moving.
How did you get the speakers to connect to the factory plugs? Did you buy them from crutchfield and they came with adapters?

Basically you can just start troubleshooting from there.
Unplug one at a time and crank it up to see if the problem persists.

He has coaxial speakers, not components.

I have 3 piece components, which consist of a 6.5" Mid, 5.25" mid, and a tweeter along with a crossover to separate the frequencies..

speakers move freely. sound quality is great. bought them from Car Toys. they're pioneer. same thing happened when i wired in sony 3 ways. and they are plugged in with the factory connectors.
