Speaker failure !

Post by LTPolo123 »

The left speaker is dead on our Polo (2012 1.2). I wiggled the wiring, no help. I removed the door card and removed/cleaned and replaced the push on clip. No help. I have replaced the head unit with a Sony BT and still no better, no sound from left hand side and right hand side tweeter is very crackly if you turn the sound up. Can I get to the tweeters easily or are there air bags in the A pillar? Any suggestions for speaker/tweeter replacement. No boom box stuff as we are retired and just like "good" sounds!

Sounds like either speakers are blown or wirings gone somewhere. If you have another speaker (even a hifi one) you could test the left side. And if you get sound u know its the speaker if not..multimeter job
