Default No sound from door speakers just my sub.

So I just bought my car a month or so ago (2005 sti) and it has a aftermarket alpine radio. It had a amp powering the front door speakers. I took that out and ran a amp to power a sub. It worked fine for a week or two and now all the sudden while driving the sound quit working in the door speakers and the sub still works so all I hear is the bass. What could cause this? The radio still functions perfectly fine just no sound to door speakers.

hmmm im not an audio guru but I would check fuses and wires. make sure everything is in order. You may have to depanel the car and trace the wires to the source... thats what I would do.. hopefully someone else has some better advice...

Checked all wiring behind head unit and to the amp and all fuses are good. Never had this happen before in 5 years of having radios in my cars

Can you take a picture of the radio harness for me? Mainly need to see the blue and the blue/white wires. But to see all would be nice. I've been installing car audio for 5 years now. I should be able to help you out.

Also check and make sure the radio has audio output. Put a DVOM (volt meter) on AC Volts and check each channel. For example a test lead from meter into white and the other test lead on white/black. Then turn the volume up. You might need to turn it up a good bit. Your volt meter should fluctuate with the bass.

Do the same testing for gray-gray/black, green-green/black and purple-purple/black.

Let me know if this helps.
