Audio Issue

I have a 2008 3.0L Grand Cherokee with the premium sound option with the RER CD/GPS Navigation Unit. I was driving to work today and every speaker in the truck (except the passenger side "tweet") stopped working. Not only that but to even get sound out of it I have to go to max volume. Has any one ever had issues with the amps on these things?

So I replaced the driver side tweet with a new speaker and it still doesn't work. I would just like to add that the passenger side speaker that is working only works when the volume is maxed out. I don't really feel like replacing all the speakers if I still won't have any audio coming out of all speakers.

Any way to test the amp(Other then power & ground that is)? That is above the driver side rear tire behind the plastic molding right?

Where did you get it? Just in case this would happened in the future for me?

So everything was working good until yesterday, now I have the same issue again. I am thinking my head unit is causing my amps to burn out or stop working. Any ideas?

Yes something is causing them to burn out. Check your power to see what kind of reading your getting at the amp

I am picking up some extra hours this week so I might not get to it until the weekend... Just asking, but am I checking for power or am I checking for anything else? Haha just trying to gather a half decent plan of attack
