Front Speaker Problems

Both my left and right speakers drop in and out. All pieces are stock.

The problem has been going on for atleast a year. The speakers wont works for most of the week, then every so ofter one or both will work on the way to or from work (15min), but come the next day, back to no sound out of the front speakers.

Any ideas on cause and solutions would be helpful.

Take off the door panel and find out if any wires are loose is an idea I have. Otherwise the speakers may be going.

the front speakers are common to blow out on cobalts. I've seen a lot of threads about this. If you have a spare speaker around try hooking that up and see what it does. chances are the speakers themselves are going bad.

Just put a good pair of aftermarkets in.
That was the first thing I did to mine. The stock ones do not sound good anyway.

Yup. Sounds like bad speakers. Stock speakers sound like total crap anyways. Shop around for some decent aftermarket speakers and you'll be happy.

Same thing happened to me.

Replaced the stock fronts with some pioneers and I haven't had a speaker problem since.

it happened to me too, it's under warranty so, if you still have yours, just go in and have them fix it if you don't want to spend money on aftermarket speakers lol
