    Question Sail subs stopped working! Speakers or amp?

    I dd notice crackling a few weeks back and it went away but just afew day ago I noticed the complete lack of bass from songs that used tosound decent. I'm about to put my amp and 10 " stealth box in the back but I feel like replacing the sails since they're not working. Do you guys think it's the amp or the speakers blown ?

    I am guessing kee audio replacements are a good cheap swap? I don't want to modify or cut the sheet metal back there if I do I may just get gm replacements like did for the front.

    Any recommendations for the cheapest bolt-in replacement?

    The kee audio will work. Since you are putting in a sub you could just put in any coaxial speaker. Pull the wires from the rear most speakers and run them to the sails to get a full range speaker.

    Yeah, if you're putting in a 10" sub you may want to skip replacing the sail panel subs and throw in a pair of coaxials.

    What are you going to need those little 4inchers for when your going to be running 6.5's in the sails. you will never hear the 4inchers. Just leave them unplugged or remove them. I unsoldered the wires off the 4's and extended them to the 6.5's and kept the factory plug but ditched the 4's
