    the two front door speakers in my 01 sierra arent working i swapped in a cheapo radio from walmart last year or the year before and after i did it the radio never seemed as loud the other day going down the highway my son was asleep so i tried to fade it more towards the front so i could hear it over tires and ladder rack and not keep him up and it sounded like the radio was shutting off it just got really quiet so today i went out and put my head near the speakers and you could hear but it sounded like it was a mile away it was really quiet but the back ones work fine i know nothing about sound systems or radios or what ever it is all like french to me so i was wondering before i go chasing wires or ruining something and having to take it to a sound shop could this be as simple as a wire hooked up wrong or a bad adapter. any ideas for what to look for thanks

    and just a rant but it seemes liek it is one thing after another with my freaken truck lately im about ready to drive it somewhere and :gunsfiring::gunsfiring::gunsfiring:

    you may have a wire crossed or shorted out !! did it happen immediately or did it take the year too realize it?? you may just have a bad speaker that is killing the front channell circuit!! when you r listening do u hear popping or static in the front??? most of these trucks had a speaker and a tweeter in the front doors i would recommend pulling a door panel at a time in front and unhooking the connectors one at a time and see if the other side comes on when it is unhooked

    it has been quieter ever since i put the new radio in but i just thought it was because it was a crappy cheap radio i didn't realize it was because of the front speakers till the other day. and the speakers never make cracking and popping like they are blown thats why i never checked i guess i will have to pull the truck apart tommorow to check wires
