Ah, i got a new problem as they never end. All of a sudden the door speakers (Front and Back) stopped working. I have tried playing with the fader with no luck. The tweeters work, the speaker in the dash works, and the subwoofer works for bass and that's it.

Is there a fuse that i can check maybe? I'm not too experienced when it comes to car audio but i definitely want this fixed.

I see by your profile, you drive the performance edition, so I assume you have the Bose System. Your car has a fuse box under the rear seat. If you check fuse #38, it powers the amplifier. I'd start with that.

Yes correct I do have the Bose system. I have checked the amplifier fuse and it's good. If it was bad the radio won't work at all. I'm guessing I need a new amplifier, I don't see how all speakers could just stop working at once.

Have you checked all the wiring that plugs into the amp?? Maybe the plug for the speakers has came loose...

I will climb in the trunk and take a look to see if any connection is loose. I don't know much about audio equipment or what connecter will be for the speakers.

Checked all connections and they are all secure. Looking online at amps this certain Bose amp is hard to find. It's a real pain only having one speaker working and the subwoofer.

Wow just by cleaning my door panels i noticed it looked there were no speakers in the doors. Well there ISN'T any speakers in the doors. I have had my car in the mechanic shop twice for the cat converter and i had a audio shop that i trusted put new headlight bulbs in and they took quite awhile. So this means that one or the other took my speakers out of my doors. I cannot really recall when the sound stopped after having which service done. Boy am i p*ssed

I shined a flashlight in to the speaker grilles and i can see there isn't any speakers there it's completely empty. More than likely it was the audio shop or stupid mechanics just want to mess with a Cadillac since a lot of people hate working on them.

----------

$120 i can get all original speakers

You could upgrade to better ones. I ask before because it alot of work to take each panel of. One question the speaker on the dash works

Yes the speaker on the dash works they did not remove that one luckily. It puts out quite a bit of sound itself. What do you think would be a good upgrade in speakers?

Bose speakers are 2 ohms impedance and just any other speaker will not work.

Do you hear the door chime? Turn on the headlights without the key in the ignition and the driver’s door open. The chime should be herd out the driver’s door. If you hear it the speaker is there?

Bose speakers are the weak link in the Bose system the sub blows out most of the time. You can buy better speakers at half the cost.

Nope there isn't any chime at all and I know for a fact there was before. Does anybody know the exact speaker size they are? What would be a good buy over the original ones?
