Question Rear Speaker

I never even had a chance really to check if my speakers were all working.

I have been noticing a reduction in volume frequently- lately.

So I go around to each speaker to see what happens individuallyand what I find is that

the rear driver side is low in comparison to the others.

When the fronts are on and they are working normally, I can't even tell the rear

one is low.

Is this common to have one side lower than the passenger rear?

No distortion just low volume..


Never even looked at the speakers.. guess gotta see what they look like

Any thoughts?

Garage
Mine are in bad shape, and the car is garage kept.

I think my problem lies in the factory head unit.

it sounds rally good except for the one in the back

I had some water back there for some time with the vent problem

so, it may have had some moisture.

yes, I tried all different settings - each speaker separate.

I unplugged the connectors at the rear speakers to see if anything was loose.

Tried the settings with the wire disconnected etc.

Tried to 'tighten the' amp wires.

May be its the amp not giving enough power to the speaker?

I also noticed that perhaps they designed the system sound level to be a little lower in the back because

otherwise the speaker would be blasting in the rear passenger's ears.

...The one speaker is lower though which I suspect is not working correctly.

it's not really a big deal to me and to take out the speaker looks like an all day task.


going to see if they say anything about it in the owners manual...

Speakers are easy. Unhook the rears and run a jumper from the good side to the bad to see if it's the speaker or the amp.
