Default I f'd up my Rear deck Speakers, Help audio guys....

Well, I was trying to hook up my 2-12'* with a bazooka amp in my GXP, and F'd up my speakers they will not work now (the RR one just hisses) I may have lost a channel in the monsoon amp. The only thing I can think of is crossed wires ?? Any one have and suggestions on how I can fix this problem I miss the mids and bass I get from the Rears. It sounds horible with out them.

This is what I did I took the wires from the speakers (at the speakers after the stock amp) and ran it to a RCA Line out converter then into the amp. The subs were working for a while now they are not.

Just a guess, (it is hard to know without seeing it)..........

Try disconnecting the line out converter and the Bazooka amp and see if you can get your rear speakers to work.

You may have to do your tap at the factory amp using the wires coming from the HU to the amp (Audio Input into the factory amp).

My only other guess is that you have a short or there is two much resistance with the Line level adapter the way that its currently connected.

Good luck,
Dutch

Make sure that you have the wires taped up and insulated properly. Try hooking another speaker (even a home speaker) to the channel that is hissing and see what happens. When a speaker blows it usually doesnt hiss. You could have shorted out you rear channel and possibly damaged it. Make sure that you wired the Line Out converter in Parallel with the speakers (+ to + and - to -) Another simple test would be to remove the converter and put things back the way they were. What happened what the subs stopped working? Did they just stop and then hiss?

Also you could check the speakers with a nine volt battery.. To see it they click.

Took it to the dealer today actually. The Rear deck speakers and the subs stopped working at the same time. So that means to me that speakers are not getting any signal. Now Pontiac has ordered a new speaker to test. I will let them go through that whole process though because I tapped into the speakers in the first place
