The other day my passenger side rear door speaker was playing just fine, then cut out all of the sudden. It doesn't rattle like it's blown, it just died. It wouldn't play the rest of the day, then when we got back in the truck yesterday it was working again. Well, for a little while anyway, then died again. Now it isn't playing at all today. I know there were some changes in the Bose system from '02 to '03. On these systems, does each speaker have an individual amp? I know that's how it was in my '99 Eldorado. That's the only reason I can think of for it behaving this way, is that an amp is cutting in and out. Any thoughts?

Bad speaker connection likely

I had this happen in my 03 but it was the driver's door speaker but the issue was the same(interment no audio on door speaker)

I just swapped out the Bose for infinity speakers

There is no difference in the speakers between the 02 and the 03-06 trucks the only differences is the sub and tweeter grilles

I'm guessing the door panel will have to come off to test the connection? Is it in a sealed unit?

Just wanted to double check. My ETC had individual amps for each speaker and the speaker was mounted in a surround with the amp.

My Bose amp is under the center console. Speakers have nothing attached
