No audio from door speakers

Am I missing something ?

I just replaced my dash speakers and now that I can hear my stereo when doing fader adjustments I get nothing or almost nothing from the door speakers ?

Thanks
Dwight

go here:

986 Forum - for Porsche Boxster Owners and Others - Search Forums

and in the search keywords box, enter your thread title:

No audio from door speakers

press < enter > key or search button and you'll get ~ 5 pages of results.

Executive summary: Door speakers are just "woofers" (5.25" crappy OEM ones at that in a "tuned port") fed (& limited) by a crossover in an under-powered 40W amp. Now that you've replaced dash drivers to something more than the just as crappy OEM dual tweeters, your door drivers are even less effective.

You're in luck though as thousands of us went down this road well in advance of you so there are plenty of resources available to help you make wise upgrade decisions.
