Default Driver door speakers

In my '93 SSE, whenever I open the driver door past a certain point, the door speakers cut off until i close it back past that point. It only started yesterday, and I don't know exactly what the problem is. Might it be wiring or something?

I would guess the wiring is getting pinched. Pop that big rubber grommet out between the door and the frame, and see what you find in it.

Worse comes to worse you can run wiring into the door through the grommet. It could also be a short on the actual speaker itself if the wiring is being 'pulled', but it sounds like the wiring is just tired out from bending back and forth so many times

I had to run new wiring, seems something was broken after the radio harness, but before the speakers.

yeah, it sounds like it is worn from all the opening/closing of the door.
