center console speaker sounds AWFUL 4 months AFTER replacement

So I replaced my center console speaker with a pyramid about 4 months ago, using the exact same process that's described on the forum. It was fine ever since - EXCEPT for about 2 days ago, it started to sound awful again. It either sounds extremely crackly or cuts out completely. I first thought loose connection, so I took the console out and soldered all of the wires to the speaker terminals - didn't help at all. I checked the speaker our thoroughly and it's not blown

Has anyone had this problem and solved it? I am running the factory head unit, 2 pioneers in the front and 2 alpines in the sound bar. I appreciate everyone's help!

the first mistake you made was to get a sub from pyramid, it might be an issue with the factory headunit. get a new headunit, it may not fix the issue but it will bring those speakers to life, you will be in aw when you hear the difference in quality.

a sub can look ok when you take it out and "snoop" around a bit, but there are parts that you can not see or feel when you push down on the cone.

you should have asked to see what other options you have. even sony is better than pyramid.
