    why dont my speakers work!?

    right... ive just replaced the speakers in my front doors from those cardboard things to some nice shiny new kenwood ones...

    everything was going fine, but now they dont work!?
    im currently running the cdr500, so is it possible that the new speakers are too big (power wise) for the h/unit?
    hellppppp...

    sorry.. im a complete novice! :roll:

    yeah, think it does.. thanks..

    but the speakers ive put in didnt come with tweeters, so if i buy some tweeters seperately, will they be compatible, or would i need to buy a whole new matching set (ie new front door speakers and tweeters) :?:

    thanks for the help guys...

    you say everything was going fine, does this mean that the speakers where working and have since stopped? Have you checked the wiring? Make sure that nothing has come loose. Are any of the wires touching and shorting out? Don't think you can have speakers that are too powerful, they just won't be used to their full potential. If however you had a headunit which was too powerful you could damage the speakers.
    cheers

    well when i say everything was going fine, i mean...
    when i had the door card off, and tested the speaker (not attatched to the door) it worked ok.. but after it was screwed on, they dont want to work?! dont think its the wiring, seemed a pretty tight fit tbh but ill give it a check anyhow..

    okk, ive just been out in the car, and when i start the car (when radio comes on) the speakers seem to 'pop' kinda,
    *edit: not so much pop, squeak almost!?*

    its a wierd noise, and then they all work fine (apart from the front doors..)??
    hmm, might just take them out and get a new set with tweeters as well!?

    :?:

    just had another thought actually.. maybe i wired the speakers up wrong..

    i mean.. could i have put the wrong wires the wrong way around (only 2 wires)?

    :roll: hate it when things dont go right first time! lol
