    Escalade Left Channel Speakers not working

    Hey guys, my driver's side speakers don't seem to be working as loud as the other speakers. I have to move the fade almost all the way to the left for it to sound balanced. Any idea where to start? I'm thinking it might be the factory amp going bad maybe?

    If you are getting chimes then most likely its the radio
    If no chimes its in the amp

    Re: Escalade Left Channel Speakers not working

    Well, i thought i had chimes, but upon further investigation i dont. I also noticed that it is just the drivers side door speaker not working... all other speakers on that side work. I swear that door speaker had some sound at one point though. What speaker is the chime supposed to come from? Is it the driver's side door speaker only?

    The chimes work from the left front channel only(driver door speaker and a pillar tweeter)
    If you want I can tell you how to remove the door panel to check the speaker

    Ahh, well my apillar speaker IS working, and no chimes. Tried door open, keys in ignition, ignition off. Car running, in drive, door open - nothing.

    Since that speaker is working and yet i have no chimes, according to what you say i must have a bad amp then right?

    Does the tweeter still work?
    If so then the speaker is taking a dump(had the same thing happen to me)
    I installed infinity speakers and never looked back and have been enjoying it ever since(pm me with your email if you want a audio clip)
    Btw the audio clip does NOT do my sub justice(sound ordence bpt-8 neatly tucked under the center console in my 03)

    I am planning on doing a how-to and posting it for those who want to upgrade and don't want(or can't) go to a audio shop to have it done(yes I have been asked about it that much)
