Help!

just switched my head unit with a aftermarket JVC headunit, and aftermarket speakers, and now whenever the volume is above twenty, the speakers let out a short squeak and then cut out. This usually happens within two-three seconds, but it will just keep doing it, also, the passenger side front speaker doesn't work anymore, any help would be awesome!

What's the watt output of your head unit?

Re: Help!

Do you have the shaker system? If so, that's your problem...

Re: Help!

Then my guess is either that you have a wire or two backwards or you may created a ground loop problem, depending on where you have the head unity grounded.

well the passenger front speaker doesn't work at all, and I unhooked the rear driver speaker and it works fine now, except I only have two speakers,(front left and back right), but that'll do for now.

Re: Help!

Check the wiring of your head unit, sounds like the problem is there

I hope so. I don't know what it would be though, I used a wiring harness and followed the diagram.

Hmm, i would have it looked at. But im talking about the head unit, that sounds like the problem to me. If you have a lot of free time take the speakers out and move them around in the car so rear deck into the front and see if the same speakers go out or if its the same spot of the speakers (this will pin point the area of the problem)

Yeah thats what i was thinking, and buy your head unit off of cruntchfield.com they have AWESOME customer service (like AM) and they will tell you what will fit and give you all of the installation hardware for free. Its a good buy!
