In boat speakers working on one side only

Recommended Posts

I have a wetsounds ht6 amp running the inboats. Three speakers each side. I switched the input wires and thats not the issue. Any ideas on where to check next?

So when you swapped the left and right RCAs, the same 3 speakers remained off? Move the RCAs to the 3 and 4 in-puts, change the in-put mode and see if 2 of the 3 suspect speakers then play.

Yes, I think it was the speakers on the same side that worked. I'll double check again this afternoon. I'll also try the 3/4 in-puts. Thanks Wylie-Tunes!

Okay, I switched 1/2 and the music switched sides. I then tried 3/4 and 5/6 and didn't get any sound. I put it back but reversed to 2/1 and I had music on both sides. I powered on off a couple times and now music is back to one side only, but switched sides with 2/1. Weird

If you plug the RCA into 3/4 or 5/6, you have to change the input mode switch(s).

If you reversed the 1/2 RCA or in other words, swapped the left and right rca and the dead speakers start playing the previously playing speakers stop, its likely upstream like the RCA or the head unit.

I’ll check the Exile zone control (upstream) next.

 

where would I find the “input mode”?

 

thanks,

Page 5 and 6 of the manual illustrated as #10 and #11. It tells those chnls where their signal is coming in.

Swap the left and right chnls at the zone controller, then swap the front and rear outputs as well.

You're correct Wylie, it was upstream. It's the Exile ZLD zone control. Wiggling the wires at the "front zone"output could get sound on both sides so something must have rattled loose on the inside. I'll take it to my local stereo guy and see if he can fix it.

Thanks again,

John
