I'm having a huge problem with my sisters 5.9... I installed this head http://www.crutchfield.com/p_158GT56...FFBrand%7cSony
, bought it from crutchfield, plugged in the two harness' that came with the kit wired everything up, but all I get out of the two (door and tweeter) speakers on the driver-side front is white noise. Not remembering if the front driver-side speakers ever worked at all, I plugged in the stock radio to find the same problem. Reading this thread has shed a little light on what questions to ask to get this much needed help.
1) What could be causing this problem? Could both tweeter and door speaker blow out at once? Or is there a bad connection between the radio and the speaker that renders both speakers useless.
2) Do I/can I bypass the original amplifier? If so, how hard is this to do?
3) Does the radio in the link have a suitable "pre-amp"? If I bypass/remove the stock amp, will I lose volume?
I've checked everything aside from ripping the door panel off. After crashing her 5.9 last week and getting it repaired, the stereo is a christmas present to her and I'd love to be able to give it to her tonight. Any help is greatly appreciated.
