Stereo Question

Here's an odd one.

Both door speakers on my SVX have stopped working. The tweeters and rear deck speakers are fine. The fader control works. (To the extent that I can confirm that the tweeters are functioning.)

Could it just be a loose wire inside one of the doors?

OEM head unit, or aftermarket? Do you have another head unit laying around you could use to test with? If nothing else, you could check wiring continuity with a 9v battery:

When I first started fixing up my 92, it had the OEM HU in it, and some obvious stereo work done in the past (aftermarket speakers, stray wiring, etc). Sound only came (weakly) out of one rear channel. I figured the whole thing was a write off and would have to redo it all, but then dropped in a new HU and everything worked again. In my case, seems the internal amplifier in the OEM head unit was shot. Good luck.

OE unit. I do have another OE unit in my parts stack.
