Hi, After recently buying a W reg 156 I noticed that there was no sound coming from the drivers side speaker/tweeter so I installed a new headunit thinking it may have been a problem with the old Blaupunkt after-market one but there's still no sound from the drivers side speaker/tweeter. Where would the problem most likely be and how much would it cost to get a car audio specialist to take a look & fix, I'm after a ballpark figure? I'm based in the Cheshire/Merdeyside area. Any help is much appreciated.

You've not got the bose, and are listening to an empty space where no speaker exists, are you?

I ended up taking it to a car audio specialist and they did some tests on the wiring behind the head unit and apparently the wires for the speakers came back as showing no power, it's going to be a dash off job to determine where the break in the wiring is, could be a big job and an expensive one at that, ah well at least it will get sorted as I'm getting sick of listening in mono.

Audio specialist has just called to say the reason there's no sound from the drivers side speakers is because there isn't any :eek: , the grilles are obviously there but when removed nothing, just a space where the speaker should be, I guess my next question then is what upgraded speakers should I get?

:lol: i would at least have presumed you'd checked for a speaker! :D

it's ok, i can appreciate you would expect there to be a speaker. :)

before suggesting what to buy, i would ask you how much you're willing to spend, what you're expecting to achieve in terms of quality, whether you want to expand the system (amplifier, subwoofer, etc), and what brands are available to you? if you're shopping at that same store, find out what brands they offer.

i could suggest a shortlist, but they may not be available or cost too much.

:)
