Rear Speaker not working.

I've just fitted my new Pioneer P7600MP in my Mk2.

Now I've discovered that my rear drivers side speaker isn't working??

Any ideas??

The wire that leaves the headunit is the same wire that goes to the speaker so it isn't a wrong connection. Also I've noticed that the same coloured wire is linked into the original Active Subwoofer? It also appears now that the subwoofer is acting as a second left hand speaker? When you fade to left it stays on giving sound. When you fade to right it turns off (and there's no sound in the back as the right rear speaker isn't working.)

I wanna get it all wired correctly as I plan installing new 6x9's and an amp and new sub but wanna use as much as the old wiring as I can to prevent stripping the car to re-run wires all over the place

Cheers

Re: Rear Speaker not working.

yoru sub woofer is woking perfectly fine, the sub is an inline sub meaning it takes it signals from the normal rear left and right speaker signals. the fact that the sub goes quiet when you fade the side that the speaker no longer works on means that there is no signal getting to the sub for the rear drivers side speaker. i assume when you changed teh head unit you just pulled old on out and put new one in ??

there must be someting wrong with teh connection at the back of your stereo. make sure you pushed teh iso block in properly if you using a wiring loom make sure that is all plugged in ok and that no wires are loose in the connectors of the block.

to rule out your new stereo is not faulty and iys a wiring problem. plug your old stereo back in see if speakers all work then

Re: Rear Speaker not working.

No all is plugged in well and the headunit isn't faulty as the factory headunit works all speakers fine when connected up but the new headunit also works all the speakers in a friends car when plugged in there.

To connect I simply used the ISO adapter to convert the Fiat wire set-up to suit the back of my new unit (also ISO just different set-up) the adapter was bought from Fiat direct so I know it's the right one.

The only wiring that's loose at the back is the blue block of the three coloured blocks of wiring but I've been told the wires contained in this are only for the onboard computer to recognise my original headunit code and not needed. There isn't a plug for it anyway on the back of my new headunit and there isn't an adapter either on the market that allows connection of it.

Re: Rear Speaker not working.

Check that you havent faded it out somehow on the head unit (obviously) Other than that it can only be connections or the head unit. Have you tried running it without the sub connected?

P.S. are you running an amp?

Re: Rear Speaker not working.

he is using fiat standard inline active sub so no special wires on it.

is a strange one, are you sure you havent done something on yoru stereo, its wierd that all works fine with normal head unit.

normal head unit = speakers all work

new headunit someone elses car = works fine

new head unit with wiring loom yoru car = rear driver speaker dont work

is there any chance the wiring loom is faulty ???
