Sound System

Recommended Posts

Hello every one...this is my first post on the site.

I have a 2.2 D Sovereign 2006 X Type Estate with a Alpine speaker system.

Yesterday whilst listening to the radio, the main speakers on the drivers side front and rear  simultaneously stopped working. The little tweeter one's still produce sound. 

I have checked all the obvious settings on the head unit, but all are normal.

Any advice would be appreciated.

unplug and refit the largest connector at the amplifier (Top of the electronics stack left hand side of boot space). If no better suspect amp.

Are you getting any sound from the sat nav or voice (if fitted)?

Update. I tried to unplug the largest connector without any success..the cradle holding the amp in position is restricting access..I did try to unbolt the cradle but there is a hidden bolt some where.! The problem has increased now to the extent that only one speaker is working in the rear passenger door and the multi change CD system is not giving out any sound but indicating on the touch screen that it is playing the CD. The telephone system is working but only out of the remaining working speaker, as is the sat nav. The single CD unit is also using the remaining working speaker. The sub woofer is working correctly.

There are four bolts holding the electronics rack to the floor of the car Richard, from memory 10mm socket and extension required to get at the back ones. The whole cradle will then slide away sufficiently to get at the connectors or, indeed, to remove the amp.

From your further description I am of the opinion that the connectors need to be checked for security and if they are satisfactory, I would try another amp.

It's unfortunate that you are some distance from Wolverhampton otherwise you could have turned up at my house and I would be able to fit another amp for confirmation of the fault and my friend Denis could probably locate a permanent replacement if it was required.

If you're passing this way (less than 10 minutes from M6 J10a) at all I'd be happy to take a look for you. Alternatively, maybe somebody you know locally might be prepared to let you swap out the amp.

Those are my thoiughts as things stand. Let me know if I can help.

Paul. Many thanks for the advise. I will look at taking the rack out tomorrow. As you say Wolverhampton is someway from Hampshire (Southampton) but many thanks for the offer of help.

Hopefully, if I can get to the connector plug and do as you first suggested it will all start working again.! Here's hoping. I will update on any progress. 

Once again Paul thank you.

Update

See the pic's below.

The one at the top before the removal of the amp and the one on the bottom, after. Unfortunately as suggested by Paul, unplugging and re-plugging the connector didn't work. I will seek a local specialist tomorrow. I'm curious to know what the two silver boxes are that are situated under the multi disc player
