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.<p>Anyone have any ideas?

Re: HELP: 1995 850 Sound sound not working on right front and rear doors. (kaj2003)

Probably a loose connection from the Head unit to the amp.<p>Or a worn wire harness.

A couple of questions:<br>Which HU? It sounds like the OEM, but which one?<br>Then, the obvious...Balance control? It IS in the middle, right?<br>Less obvious. Is this with all sources? Radio, Tape, CD?<p>The previous posters idea of checking the connections is bang on.<br>Pull the deck and be sure that the harness is plugged in tight.<p>This is also a good time to make sure that the wiring is still stock.<br>Sometimes, the harness gets hacked up for an after market deck<br>and then the stock HU gets stuffed back in fast and dirty for a sale. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I've seen many twisted and taped connections that just don't last...<br>Let's hope that your's is still nice and clean!

it is the SC-811 with OEM amplifier<br>Balance control and fader is dead middle<br>This happens with all sources (no CD player)<p>Went in and checked all connections<br>1.connection at HU is good<br>2.connection at amp is good/connection after amp is good<p>3.connection at the speaker is where it gets kinda wierd: (remember Right front and rear doors do not work)<p>RF 4ohm speaker won't work on LF side. <br>LF 4 ohm speaker won't work on RF side.<p>RR 8ohm speaker works on LR side, but only the tweeter portion of it.<br>LR 8ohm speaker won't work on RR side.<p><br>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. <p>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...<p>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!
