If the speakers didn't click, you'll need to repeat this battery test at each speaker to determine whether the wire or the speaker itself needs to be repaired or replaced.

Remote leads for both amps separate to behind head unit. The amp puts out 40w rms x 4 4 ohm or can be bridged to 3 channel to put out 100w rms to each of the fronts and still leave me plenty up to 500w at 2 ohm for a box in the trunk. Often, panels can be pried up at the edges. Use 14- or 16-gauge wire for speakers, 12- or 14-gauge for subwoofers.
