How to Fix Car Speakers That Go In and Out

There’s nothing worse than having your favorite song on and the car speakers start to go in and out. It’s frustrating and can ruin the whole experience. However, before you start ripping off door panels, there are some things you can do to diagnose the issue. In this blog post, we’ll go over some common issues and how to fix car speakers that go in and out.

First, the easiest thing to check is the radio settings. It’s possible that someone accidentally changed the balance or fade settings, causing one or more speakers to sound off. To check, find where the balance and fade settings are on your radio. They might be in the sound button or under settings. Once you locate them, adjust them to see if the speaker issue is fixed.

If adjusting the balance and fade settings doesn’t work, it’s time to test each speaker individually. You don’t even need to take anything apart! Adjust the balance and fade settings so that sound only comes out of the speaker you want to test. Then, listen carefully to the sound quality. If it sounds bad or crackly, there might be something wrong with the speaker or its connections.

If the speaker looks visibly damaged or deteriorated, it’s time to replace it. However, if you can’t see anything wrong, check the connections for corrosion or a loose connector. Moisture can get into the connector and cause a bad connection, which will affect the sound quality.

Another way to test speakers is to hook up a known good test speaker to the vehicle. If the sound quality is good with the test speaker, you know that the issue is with the original speaker. You can also test the speaker with a 9-volt battery, but be careful not to damage the speaker.

If you need to replace the speakers, OEM speakers can be purchased individually, but aftermarket speakers usually come in a pair. It’s recommended to replace all four speakers or at least in pairs to ensure balanced sound quality.

In conclusion, there are many factors that can cause car speakers to go in and out. By following these steps, you can easily diagnose and fix the issue without having to take apart the door panels. Don’t let malfunctioning speakers ruin your listening experience!
