Car speakers

So when I turn on my car, I hear the radio through my back speakers but the front speakers, the ones on the doors, aren't playing. Is this a problem with the speakers or the balance settings? If it is the balance settings how do I change it so I can hear sound from my front speakers? If it's a problem with the speakers itself, how and what do I replace?

Welcome to 2CarPpros.

The first thing I would suggest is to check the stereo set up. That is where you will adjust bass, treble, left and right volume, and other settings. When doing this, look for the fader setting. That is what changes the sound from front to rear and blends them together based on what you want. Please understand, the set up for the radio isn't in any of my manuals. However, it should be a part of your owner's manual.


Here are the directions for replacing the door speakers. The attached pics correlate with the directions.
