So this is weird and it started...oh about 2 weeks ago. lately like whenever I play music, the volume is really low and like...buzzy?
like it feels like the bass is like buzzing the speakers, but even when i turn it down and theirs hardly any bass it still buzzes in certain parts
now i usually use one of the cdplayer to a-track thingies (yea Im poor)
but the thing is it ALSO does it on radio, but the volume is jsut REALLY low on the radio i have to turn it up alot to even hear it
and I tried every speaker, like fading from one side to other and then front and back and ALL the speakers do this
can anyone help me, listening to music with shit quality sucks
do you have anything else like subs or an amp in your ride. i dont know dude, check the wiring, if its not that its the speakers especially if their oem like mine. I need to upgrade my whole damn system .shit.
hm those are 14 yrs old. I took a look at mine yesterday, they dont even look like 5x.25s. their tiny. their also stock I need to get rid of them. if you blast your music as high as it can go then you prolly screwed te speakers. their oem, not aftermarket, not made for bass lol
yeah but all the speakers going out then randomly coming back and forth from being crappy to halfway decent seems a little odd, im thinking connection, but i dont know where to, perhaps to my pseudo oem head unit?

the only speakers that are 5.25" on an e36 are the kick panel ones if I remember correctly. The door panel speakers are 2" with a 1" tweeter too I think, and the rears were 4 x 6" or something. I replaced mine with fairly cheap ones. I am not running an amp just for my speakers, so just getting fairly basic ones and using the built-in amp of the aftermarket headunit I have is fine.
Check the back of the OEM radio for a loose connection maybe, seems odd that they are all "fuzzy" maybe some were blown before but you couldnt hear them? I know with my car the rear speakers were blown and even with them at 50/50 I didnt hear them till I was cleaning out the back seat with the music on.
