Default One speaker quieter

(solved; bad RCA Cables)

Left front speaker much quieter than all others. Aftermarket amp and speakers. I plan to troubleshoot later. Any ideas where to start? Electronics are bugging me lately :P.

I would put my money on cables before fade and/or balance. If it was the fade or balance it would be affecting a pair of speakers.

Some amps have some settings (gain, cut off, etc.) on them as well, but I feel those would have a more pervasive effect (at least a pair of speakers). Good luck ... I find electrical particularly vexing as well.

I have the same problem on the passenger front of my eg8 but I have the stock deck and pioneer speakers in the front. Sometimes it works without a problem, most of the time its scratchy and a lot quieter. I haven't tried swapping the speakers yet to see if that could be it.

I haven't done much audio but I've dabbled. Isn't popping a sign the speaker is going? Perhaps a lemon?

How old are all of the components?

Brand new JL speakers... Alpine amp... I think some of the stuff is still under warranty..

I'm thinkin' I might just go through everything today and just reconnect everything and tidy up the wires. I guess we'll see what happens

Those are similar to the A/V cables we use at comcast. That's what I used on my car

Yeah, they had excellent ratings on Amazon. But they don't connect good to my Alpine amp I have to wiggle them to get a connection which hasn't been lasting.. so more wiggling when it stops working.... Lifetime Warranty... so maybe I just got bad cables...

Thanks Guys!
