Problems Installing My Front Door Speakers on 89 Mustang GT
hi, I just tried to install two old front speakers to my 89 mustang GT. The speakers worked fine when I hooked them up, but when I put them into the slot in the door panel and screw them into the metal part of the door, sparks come flying off the screw where it touches the door panel and the music becomes staticy and then goes dead.
When I bought the car, it came with a crappy little amp underneath the passenger seat that is supposed to power the rear speakers I believe. But the rear speakers dont seem to work with my stereo which is part of the Sony CXS-2000 Xplod package (those are the speakers I'm trying to install in the front too). When I plug in the amp to the RCA preout it seems to heat up my stereo ALOT but no sound comes out. The amp looks really crappy so I'm thinking there could be something wrong with it. It also has two very small speakers on the top of each corner of the dash. Those are the only speakers that work at the moment but they get staticy if I turn the volume up too high (which I like to do).
So my main concern is how to get the front door panel speakers hooked up so that i can screw them in and not have my stereo go dead. They work fine if I just let them hang outside the door panel, unfortunately that's not very practical, especially if I want to close my door (which I also like to do). So does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be wrong with my connections or whatever?
