Both the speakers and the woofers are working, but there just isn't much treble. Any ideas what might cause this? I have played with the settings on the radio and it helps a little, but not enough. The factory amps were wired to the new HU and resistors were installed to keep the popping from occurring, but the sound quality is seriously lacking in the high end...more bass now though
If you didn't change out the stock speakers, then that's probably the problem. I changed all four and what a difference they made.
