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?
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....
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.

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.
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.
I had radio speakers "go out" in a 2008 enclave, After along and involved set of dealings with the dealer I told them to replace the speakers but I wanted the parts. The bottom of the mounting rings showed dried puddles and the contacts were corroded. The speakers themselves tested OK.
Still think it is water issue. Removed the connection from door panel and "shook out water" and even used wet-vac to suck out water. Next day radio works! Too much rain here in New York so radio out again.
Our headlight went pink on the driver side and we went to replace it. The original bulb came out easily and when we went to but the new one in it would not lock (even turning the locking clips). We ended up taking it to a mechanic and they said we are missing a small locking mechanism inside of...
I haven't changed oil in years but $100 for an oil change with synthetic oil, I'm thinking I can save $70 by doing myself. How hard is it. Where is the drain plug located and can it be reached without having to put the car on a lift. Can the oil filter be reached from underneath?
I have brought my 2018 Enclave to the dealer numerous times since purchasing Dec 2018.
About 3 months after purchase (very low mileage maybe 2k) the vehicle was making a racket according to the technician a piece of cardboard was in my AC system - cardboard was removed and all was good.
