No sound from front speakers

Hello,

I have a strange problem with my carstereo;

There is no sound from left front speakers. I've controlled the speakers (they are working).

Right side comes and goes - no real pattern. Maybe bumps in the road...

I have controlled the radio-unit itself, that there is a signal to the speakers - and that fader-settings are not pulled to the back.

SO - is there a know problem with the wires? Or will this need an entire new wiring from radio to front doors?

I hope somebody has an answer to this...them lousy backspeakers are killing my ACDC Best Of!


Best regards
Ulrick

if you have the HK system, the problem is likely the amp (located on the left side of the trunk under the side carpeting)

It's the BMW gods' way of telling you not to play AC/DC! I think your car doesn't have a separate amp in the trunk. So, the head unit amp is probably going bad. Time for a used one from eBay.

Thank you guys, for your comments.

The car is without the HK-system, and the headunit I bought few month ago. Before I had only the cassette-version, but the problem existed back then as well. I guess it must be a faulty wireing. The funny thing is (not that it is any fun) that the right side sound comes and goes.

in that case, yeah, check the connections to make sure theyre all solid. if they are, headunit. i cant imagine all the front speakers failing at once.
