Default Problem with speaker after tint

I got my windows tinted today, and on the way home discovered that the rear passengers side speaker doesn't have much sound coming out of it. Sounds like a bad connection or something? Could this have happened when they removed the area where the speakers are to get the tint behind the 3rd brake light? If so I'm taking it back tomorrow, since they are an audio shop as well, and requesting that they fix it. It'* pretty annoying since the tint shop is another city. What do you guys think?

no, they should not have had to mess with any of the wiring, its on the bottom side... they removed the panel from the top side

I disagree, to do the rear window tint, they needed to take out the rear deck trim over the rear speakers, and yes, while the wiring for them is in the trunk, this doesn't preclude someone accidentally bumping your speakers, whose mounts stick up above the rear deck. You'd be talking about more like physical damage or possibly something that fell in the cone that is now rattling around or muffling the movement of the cone.

Take it back, have them check it out, if they find it was something they did, they'll take care of it, and if it was something else, be prepared to pay them fairly for their time.

My wife'* previous car was an 88 Grand Prix and the rear speaker grilles were built into the rear deck as a plastic grid. Over the years the plastic got brittle and broke, and pieces fell into the speaker cones. A shop tried to tell me my *really nice* Eclipse aftermarket speakers were blown, when all that was wrong was little pieces of plastic from the broken grille bouncing around in the cone. I disassembled everything, broke out the rest of the plastic grilles leaving just the grillecloth, emptied the broken pieces out of the speakers, and put everything back together and everything was just fine. Sometimes it just takes checking it out, taking a look, and seeing what'* up.

I think you're on the right track to have the tinitng shop look at it.
