I've tried looking at all I can, but can't figure out why all the speakers work except for the right front and rear door speakers in my wagon. I have the "premium audio" HU. I really don't know what the model number is, sorry.

Anyone have any ideas?

Probably a loose connection from the Head unit to the amp.

Or a worn wire harness.

A couple of questions:
Which HU? It sounds like the OEM, but which one?
Then, the obvious...Balance control? It IS in the middle, right?
Less obvious. Is this with all sources? Radio, Tape, CD?

The previous posters idea of checking the connections is bang on.
Pull the deck and be sure that the harness is plugged in tight.

This is also a good time to make sure that the wiring is still stock.
Sometimes, the harness gets hacked up for an after market deck
and then the stock HU gets stuffed back in fast and dirty for a sale.

I've seen many twisted and taped connections that just don't last...
Let's hope that your's is still nice and clean!

it is the SC-811 with OEM amplifier
Balance control and fader is dead middle
This happens with all sources (no CD player)

Went in and checked all connections
1.connection at HU is good
2.connection at amp is good/connection after amp is good

3.connection at the speaker is where it gets kinda wierd: (remember Right front and rear doors do not work)

RF 4ohm speaker won't work on LF side.
LF 4 ohm speaker won't work on RF side.

RR 8ohm speaker works on LR side, but only the tweeter portion of it.
LR 8ohm speaker won't work on RR side.

I'm guessing that something's wrong in the HU. I bypassed the amp and pluged the harness directly to the HU and got the same result. I just want to be sure it is the HU before spending the $$$ on a "new" one.

It's also a good possibility that the R speakers are crapped out since they don't work on the other side of the car. Which was really wierd, because the speakers that did work on the L side, didn't work on the R side!

Re: (kaj2003)

Get yourself a cheap $5 speaker and test with it one corner at a time at all 4 corners. If it works, then the HU is ok and the speakers are gone.

Re: (ss60)

thanks guys...

I went in and tried some speakers from around the house. They worked. So I examined the speakers real close. And sure enough! One of the tiny little copper wires that link the + post to the diphragm had broken off on both the front and the rear (as well as the tweeter falling off it's magnet). A little solder and melted craft plastic later, and they're good as new - but a bit uglier!
