Hig Big Pete, a mate had a similar problem and it turned out that the conectors were touching the metal body aswell which meant it was shorting out and not working. He screwed them downinto place and both positive and negatice terminals were sitting on the metal frame i got a peice of cardboard slipped it in there and its been fine ever since. Just a thought
still as delboy999 said, if you wanna play loud get an amp, if you overload the headunit, you can cook the head unit and the speakers - when under too bigga load the headunit will clip, which will fry the speaker's voicecoils. Keeping that in mind, it also depends on your speaker's sensitivity..i have a set of super-sensitive pioneer 7x10" square cone 4 ways running off the eb headunit lol - they work fine, but i know the headunit's limits so i dont turn it up too loud. there are also other factors, there could be something shorting out somewhere when all 4 are connected, like on channel interferring with the other one. My mat currently has the same problem, but hes too lazy to fix it!
Hope this helps - Blake.
ne one that said that the deck wont runn the speakers dont have aclue of what you are on about ,just about any deck these days will runn 4 speakers .
i had the same prob in my car put in the stereo ,and then speakers and me speakers ran when i had the doors open but when you closed them for some reason the speakers cut out which was due to the fact that the speakers were earthing on the tabs ,simple fix electrical tape arround the tabs and on the door metal near the tabs
Falcons hunt by stooping on prey at high speed... sometimes as fast as 200 mph.
85xfo - You have obviously never run a set of serious speaker in a car, or attempted to, the fact is put a set of 200w rms speakers of a 10w rms deck and see how loud they get, not very loud, and see how long your deck lives, not very long.
Might I suggest you also learn English and grammar as yours is just woeful.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
Lol ok man...it depends on the speaker's sensitivity rating...some will use that 10w efficiently to make decent volumes, but at the end of the day, that 10w at loud volumes will turn into a square wave signal and will fry the voice coils - any hi-powered speaker be it sensitive or not. Hi powered speakers need decent current coming through them to work properly without being detrimental to their condition.
And i forgot to mention...all the things like bass controls and loudness will make the headunit distort more, so thats only going to do the speakers more harm. A point to think about Factory head units were generally designed for factory speakers, so why try and pull more out than they are capable of?
