static... its getting old
 
So my wj radio. Or at least AFAIK the left front tweeter has a constant static noise coming from it. Sometimes I have bass sometimes I don't... I already replaced the factory infinity amp as a a radio installer told me it was most likely that.

I'm thinkingits the factory HU any ideas... did so.e searching and nothing real specific came up

The stock WJ tweeters all went bad. Many guys unplug them.

Someone had replaced the front door speakers in my truck with some 3-way Pyle brand speakers, but through investigation I found that the factory system sent bass to the front speakers, highs and mids to the tweeters, and full range to the back door speakers. So I re-wired it to give me full range in the front door speakers and bass to the rear speakers (I switched the front door wiring to the back and vice versa) and left the tweeters unhooked. You'd never know they were supposed to be there as it sounds great now.

Just my 2 cents.


You can buy replacements but they'll go bad in the sun, too. :shrug:

My tweeters were blown when I bought my WJ. Replaced them a few weeks later and I haven't had a problem almost a year later now.

Even with my volume all the way down they make this static noise. Is that common with blown tweeters

yes. You can very easily pry up your trim and unplug them. That will at least stop the buzzing until you can remedy the situation.

Alright. Well the wife has given me the go ahead on doing a full system. Have a 1200 budget .

I'm going to get all quality components so. It sounds clean and loud... we do a lot of bonfire party's and this will be a good way to provide decent music

We use rigs all the time for music.. and booster cables should be in any wheeling rig!

things have come up but i did manage to get a HU, and just replacing that has solved my issue, It no longer has this static sound... and i have bass again, which before the system was very muffled..

going to be buying some polk audio components for up front, and getting a rockford p3 12 in a bass wedge truck box.
