Default factory speakers keep going out

Hi!

I've got an 97' Accord that I installed a subwoofer and an amp. The car has factory speakers and a while ago there was an audible buzz, I first thought it was the sub that went out but it was actually the right rear speaker. A while after that the left one broke out too. What could be the problem? Sorry for bad english or difficulties to understand but I was in a bit of a hurry writing this.

Did you check the connections of the factory speakers? Also where is your amp mounted? Aftermarket deck or Factory head unit?

Your speakers could be dried out and rotted. Happens all the time to factory accord speakers. I would get new speakers. Or check your wiring.

the subs will pressurize, move, and eventually destroy the rear speakers. think about all of the pressure the sub puts on the trunk walls and those light cones don't stand a chance. this is very common.

either just remove rear speakers and amplify new front speakers to compensate, or put enclosures around the replacement rear speakers.

cheers for all the answers!

btw, does it matter that my car radio is such a model that has no designated output for a sub, but only an "additional amp" as it says in the manual. the subwoofer in my car is plugged into the additional amp input. does this strain the stereo system somehow? i must also add that i would give all the info i know about the subwoofer i have but it's a really dodgy looking DIY combination of a kenwood 10" element and a chinese 600W amp and i don't have any information on it whatsoever. google searches don't give much results on the amp either.

no, there is no issue with using generic RCA outputs and not specific sub outputs. the only difference is you don't have dedicated sub level controls/filters in the HU.
