Driver side door speaker not working


Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 Silverado 1500HD with the factory Bose setup. It is completely stock with no modifications to it. My driver door speaker has completely stopped working. It seems like the tweeter in the pillar is still working. This weekend coming up I am going to try to tear into the truck and check all connections, speaker, behind the stereo. Where is the amp for this setup? Is it in the center console?? also are there any other possible short areas that could be causing this. I eventually want to replace the entire setup, however its not going to be this year. Just need to get it working for now as cheaply as possible. Ideas?

 

Thanks

I wish mine was a simple - my 07 speaker went intermittent and then finally stopped. Tore into it today and the speaker itself was bad - had to get a GM replacement - no aftermarket :M16: . Well I did find one dealer open today with one in stock - so a trip across town and 40.00 later it was fixed.

 

I also had problems with the window control switches - so while I was at it I tore into it as well - with nothing to lose - I tore it apart and cleaned the contacts with some IPA and low and behold it now works just fine - saved me about $75.00.

My drivers door speaker had stopped working for the last year also, but it will come back on every now and then. I think I will try to save up to replace all of them with aftermarket. Only bad thing is I will have to modify a bit from what I have heard. Or maybe if I get off my lazy butt and tear into it, it might be a connection problem. :dunno:

If it is a connection problem it is probably something internal to the speaker (mine was - the speaker read open on an ohmmeter) - the main wires connect to the speaker with a latching connector that is very hard to pop off. Actually if you go to a car stereo shop they could probably modify things for some aftermarket retrofit. The speaker is already housed in a molded plastic piece that snaps into an opening in the sheet metal with a combination of tabs, and a single screw. The back of the plastic has a hard foam sealant while on the front there is a piece of soft foam that acts as a cushion between the speaker and the door panel. The beauty of the GM system is that it only requires on screw, and the speaker is isolated from the door panels - I am not sure if you could get all of that in an aftermarket.
