Door Speakers...again.

I've had the car for two weeks now.

EVERY day without fail...they (neither of them) do not work in the morning, but in the afternoon they both work great. Ideas?

This is totally oddball. Could there be a faulty circuit in the stock head unit that only works when it gets hot?

Mine use to do that, except they rarely worked. Some days, depending on the weather, they'd both work.

Just get new speakers, that's pretty much the only way to fix that.

My front left speaker is random, not working more than working anymore. I plan on throwing my dad's ADS speakers in there for epic sound this summer.

my speakers did the same thing, front left stopped working then the front right started going on and off at almost random. After reading around its common with the stock speakers that they just over time shit out. If you aren't into amazing speakers id say go grab a pair of pioneers for $40 from best buy or auto-zone they are far better then stock and will probably fix your issues.

these are OEM speakers? well if so then i would say upgrade them because they are pretty cheap to begin with and there is a decent amount of water that gets between the door and the inside door panel where the speaker wire goes so in the morning the moisture might prevent them from working

I just ordered these...nothing fancy, but should be better and more reliable than stock:

And these "foam baffles" to keep the rain/moisture out:

From what I was reading, those baffles KILL any bass response from the speakers...
