Severe Rattle/audio Problem


 Share

Recommended Posts

my 93 es right door speaker either blows out or has severe rattling issues even with bass off. My left door speaker is beautiful, no problems at all. Problem is my right door has been removed so many times and the speaker has blown out 3 times now that I'm not sure if the speaker is blown or the rattle is just that absolutely horrible. I just replaced the speaker this morning and it sounds horrible. Its all stock speakers, nothing new added. I do have a pair of pioneer 6x9 speakers i would like to add to the rear but I know nothing about hooking these things up. I've heard mixed stories about replacing the speakers and having them be underpowered by the stock amp and replacing the stock amp messing up the speakers it all confuses me. I just want for once to hear some clean crisp audio from my car. Hell I enjoyed my sound more when I removed the right door speaker although the lack of bass upset me. I like a moderate amount of bass and my right door speaker fails to comply. If it were a person I would tell it to be more like my left door speaker which sounds beautiful. Any way I can fix this right door speaker or if I would be able to put the pioneer speakers in the back without comprimising the rest of the stock set up. Really if I can just get my right door speaker to work I would be a happy guy. Never mind the two 700 watt subwoofers in a 2 foot box enclosure thingy i want to set up that will probably never get done because I can't get that stupid right door speaker to work. This has been going on for over a year now. Please help me you'll be my hero

If you've replaced the speaker several times and the problem still exists, my guess is for 2 possibilities. One, there has got to be something inside that door that is loose and rattles whenever you get the volume up. It should be fairly easy to spot if you thump the door with your palm several times. If that doesn't find the rattle, because one may not exist, go to step two. Two, you already have the interior door panel off, go to a car audio specialist /installer and let them try to give you some advice. It may well be that that one output amp for the channel is gone. Either way, they should be able to tell you what your problem is, particularly with the panel removed. Good luck!

One more idea. You've plugged and unplugged the connector at the door many times, so you would guess that its clean enough to be making a really good connection, but is it? The other end is also a possible problem. Pull the radio and dissconnect the main harness to the speakers. Is there a bad contact in either connector that needs cleaning? And what about the ground contact of the speaker to the door? If there is only one wire connection to the speaker at the door, the speaker must be properly grounded to the door itself. Is it? Put a temporary ground wire between the door speaker and a good grounded bolt head in the car somewhere and see what happens. Short of taking your car to an audio expert, I've exhausted my ideas. Hope one of them helps you out.

I think the problem you're having is more likely coming from the amplifier that drives the speaker that sounds terrible. The reason I feel this way is because you changed back to the stock speaker and the problem continues. A high degree of amplifier distortion will destroy a speaker.

One thing to note is turning the bass and volume up high seems to null the "rattle" or bad sound i hear. For instance in rap songs with high bass and thumps it sounds fine at very high volumes. its at lower volumes that causes problems and even with the bass turned all the way down, I can still hear it. It sounds more like a gurgling sound than anything else. I'm just probably going to find some audio expert to take a look although the point is trying to avoid spending money because I honestly don;t have alot.
