Car speaker problem

The front passenger speaker in my car most of the time doesn't work. To make it work you need to turn the volume up quite high, and then it will work. If you turn the volume back down it will still work, but eventually cut out again. I'm not sure what this will be a problem with, wiring, is the speaker faulty? I took the speaker off to check the connection and it's fine. I'm not really knowledgeable enough to take my front dash off and follow the wire to check for problems. Anyone got any idea what it could be?

Swap your front and rear speakers around and test? It might be the amplifier.

sounds like the speaker's driver. swap with another speaker to test

Well that's a problem, my car doesn't have rear speakers, it's a basic punto. I am going to put some in but thought I might aswell try and sort the front ones before I bother with rears. So there isn't even any wires in the rear to test a speaker on at the moment.

EDIT: Would swapping front drivers with front passengers be okay just to test?

It would be a good test, but its very unusual for a speaker driver to work at a higher volume and then work when quieter then go off. - I would be inclined to say its something to do with the amplifier getting hot or something.

Try the other speaker, make sure the plus and minus connections are the right way round. When you take the driver out of the car, press the outsides of the driver down like when they move when working (if you know what i mean) and feel to see if there is any resistance or scratching, they should move perfectly with no noise, if there is noise, then its a new speaker. something you could get very cheaply from a scrapyard.

Bear in mind, if you are using the standard stereo, aftermarket speakers wont make much of a difference cos they need more power than the normal ones.

I'll give that a go then, thanks for the quick replies, repped.
