Speakers

so is there any reason why when I play my radio is plays though all the speakers, but when I play my phone it only comes through the rear speakers? I figured it's not the wiring because like I said when I play regular radio it's fine an plays all 4 speakers. Also is that a subwoofer in the center console facing the driver or is it another speaker? whatever it is it's blow and needs to be replaced. what do you guys recommend putting in there? thanks in advance

I had a similar problem with my Bluetooth playing through only the front speakers. I found it was a setting in my new Kenwood head unit. Once I got it installed and trimmed out, I got deeper into the settings and fixed it.
That is in fact a sub in the center console, its in an enclosure that is accessible by removing the rear half of the console. Its an off size, lots of discussions here about what to use for replacement. Mine was blown too, I did a temporary repair to the surround with liquid electrical tape that has held up for a few months while I address more important things.

I dove into the setting and found at first that it was only coming through the back and then put the fader back from the back to the front. then that's when I noticed the problem with the speakers. it does it in Bluetooth also, I think I have a kenwood as well. I'm a pioneer man myself but doesn't really matter with a single din like I have. I thought it was a sub, yeah I think it's a 6.5" right? an ok thanks bud. I'll have to get into it an see why it's not working. may not be hooked up to radio when he brought it to the audio shop. do you happen to remember exactly what you did for the radio so the sound quality returned? thanks

What model head unit do you have? Did you install it?
I've got a Kenwood KDC-BT555U. I couldn't remember exactly where in the settings I found it, but try this
Also, there is a common mistake when wiring an aftermarket head unit using the factory sub. What happens is the remote power lead gets wired incorrectly. If you're comfortable doing so, pull the radio and check the harness connections. Here is a pretty detailed write up on a full install. The sub wiring issue is covered about half way down the comments.

Front speakers are 4x6, but a lot of people change to round, maybe 5 1/4"?
The sub has a factory amp inside the enclosure. it pulls the audio signal from the rear speaker leads right in the factory harness. It is a tiny amp, but does OK. You can't expect much from a factory set up at that age. Look around on this forum and others, there are a ton of write ups on what you can do with up-sizing speakers and creative sub-woofer set ups.
