my speaker has issues.

I’m having trouble with an after market speaker in my passenger side door… it was only doing it when I would hit a bump or just occasionally out of the blue…it was a high pitched tone and a crackle….so I took off the door panel, and I unscrewed and pulled out the speaker. There weren’t any wires touching anything and the speaker is not damaged……, I put it back together and since then its just been making. a vibrating rumbly sound….the speaker isn’t blown….(I know what that sounds like ) and it only does it on some songs….i remember Ozzy made it rumble yesturday…not like that helps……

Anyways any stereo buffs out there? Either reply or pm me please, thanks

You need to check “all” the wires. Also make sure there is room for the speaker in the door. I sounds like the wires are not tight somewhere. I hate doing anything with the electrical system. It could be a bad speaker so if you do all the above and come up empty handed it has to be the speaker. Good luck.

I'd suggest switching the left and right speaker and see if the sound goes with the speaker or stays on the same side, if it goes with the speaker then it sounds like you got some voice coil issues, if it stays on that side then I'd say you got some wire touch or a bad connection or a bad ground somewhere. Just an idea to help narrow it down a lil more

Its common in Jeeps. They have a bad wiring harness in the doors. Sometimes they break. You will just need to get a new harness. Do a search in the forum and you will find lots of info in here already.
