Radio Speakers 2008

Speakers going in/out for the past year ...... with the past days in NY being so hot speakers are working. Definitely water related as I believe the water ‘sitting somewhere’ has dried up.

That's weird. I can't think of where the speakers could be shorted by water. The wires are shielded, and run from the harness behind the headunit. When they reach the speakers they are attached using fairly study clip - couldn't come lose or cause intermittent problems. Do all the speakers go out at the same time or is it just one or two at a time?


Do they go out when you hit a bump or just randomly?

Had this happen to my 2010 Traverse.
Most likely NOT water related. That is-- if the door connectors are nice and dry.

Im in Southern California. Not much water here.


Some months ago- my speakers suddenly began to have issues.
Noticed it when my Onstar was barely audible. Only the tweeter made noise (drivers side)...

So over a few days- I started to lose speakers.
Driver front, then pass front, then rear left, rear right.... all within a couple of days.

I checked all connectors-- dry.
I removed radio- reseated connector.... nothing.
So I thought the radio had failed--- since it was all speakers. (except the tweeters)

I contacted a refurbished radio seller on ebay--- and he said to 1st check signal at speakers wire connection.


So I went home- and was about to start digging into it--- when some of the speakers were working.

A little more research online--- and I saw post about the speakers working above 85 degrees.

WOW!!!!! yes-- my speakers began to work on an afternoon where the temps outside were near 85-- and inside the cabin was warm.

They were onto something.

Cold mornings--- no sound.
later in day- 85+ sound.

So I ended up ordering new speakers from crutchfield and put them in. Now have sound.
Was not radio, was not wiring, was not water intrusion. just Old speakers.

by the way- the Kenwood speakers I put in--- have less bass than the factory speakers.
Wasnt too happy about that.

But it could be the factory speakers in its enclosure- reach all the way to the door panel- essentially flush with.
the kenwoods- attach to the door-- and there is a gap left between the speaker and the door panel....

Via Crutchfield...
Kenwood KFC-1665S - $39.99 front (2 speakers per box)-- same speaker for front/back.
Kenwood KFC-1665S - $39.99 rear

Scosche 142SAC656- $12.99.... but then listed as FREE. (ring to mount to door)
GM SAP- 142SMH634B- $11.99... but then listed as FREE. (ring to mount to door)

item total- $79.98

I did have to cut wires and drill the door panel.

You other option is to simply go on ebay and buy the OEM speakers- pop out the old- pop in the new (speakers are attached to a large plastic enclosure-- so the enclosure is replaced too.
2008 Enclave-- without BOSE.

Fronts- 15122601 --- $15-25 each on ebay
Rears- 15785264 ---- $15-$25 each on ebay.

Audio in, audio out...

I’m not sure our issue is related to temperature as, in the dead of our DC winter, we either get good audio or poor audio at random, all speakers at the same time. I’ve considered that it might be a bluetooth issue, but all the pairing and unpairing has been for naught. Either we start out for a drive with full audio, or it sounds like a cheap transistor radio. I’ve read somewhere that it could be the amp, so that’s my next avenue of investigation. Ours is a 2009 AWD CXL.

Possibly the amplifier?

I have a 2008 Enclave CXL with the Bose audio system and I have had the same issue, very randomly. Last summer it would happen several times a day for many days in a row. Then I went months without any issues.

Today, it worked when I first got in the car, but after running into the store and coming back out, it stopped working. It was then out for half the day before coming back, so I know my issue isn't water or temperature related as it has been a dry week with temps in the mid-80s.

I have read elsewhere about people determining that the issue stemmed from the amplifier for the Bose system and was fixed for some people by replacing the amp.
It's mounted under the dash to the left of the steering column, I believe.

This might be something for you to look into.
Now that my issue has returned, I'll be looking into this possibility and I'll post my findings.

I might also add, that there is a thread that deals with removsl/replacement if the Amp near the steering column. At $200.00+, that bugger is a pain to get to. You will need a ratcheting head screw driver to get to some of the screws, I speak from experience. Although i did not actually replace the Amp, I did manage to get it out to take a look at it. I have replaced both of my front door speakers with Acadia Bise speakers. They are 6-1/4", just like the Enclaves. But have a much bigger magnet on the backs. Not sure what the differences are in wattage or amperage.
