The front left (driver) channel on my stereo sounds like it has a blown speaker whenever the car gets wet (car wash, rain, etc.) It hangs around a couple of days and then it's back to normal. My first instinct is to pull the door panel and look for signs of water entry.
Anybody have a better idea? Anybody "hear" of this problem before?
If the cone or coil is getting wet, that's exactly the sound you would get (coil shorting). However, i've never seen a factory car stereo speaker mounted in such a way that water could possibly get to the coil. So if it's getting wet, you've got a significant issue there.
I have that same issue. It was on the passenger side at first. I took it to the dealer and the replaced it. They said it was blown, even though I know better, since it would start working after a day or so. The drivers side does it on occasion. It seems like it is when it has to sit outside in really cold temperatures.
