2 small problems

First of all the car is a 94 2 Door Pontiac Sunfire. I installed 2 sony explod 6x9 speakers in the back because one of the stock speakers were blown. I also put in a JVC cd player. The problem starts with when i have the base cranked up a little along with the volume. The cd player shuts off then come back on as if it draning the power when the base hits. I noticed the speaker wirring is a little smaller to in this car.

I had no problem with these speakers in my 91 corsica. they hit good it that car.

If i am right i think i need a small 30 watt amp or someting along those lines.


My other question is... is there a trick to getting the back seat to snap back into the clips where the seat is being held in by?

#1...make sure your impedance matches 8 ohm output from the stereo unit with 8 ohm speakers...(you didn't mention if that is the same stereo unit as you had in the corsica) also...the mounting must be good...bass cause alot of vibration and may make the cd player lose its place...does the unit cut off with the radio playing? are your connections good? no butt connecters, wire nuts or other half way connection methods allowed...

#2...lay your shoulder on the floor and use the back of the front seat for leverage...push hard at the spot where the wire bail is and you'll feel it drop into the hook

#1 i am not sure of the ohm on the cd player the i think the speakers are 4 ohm. I did notice that my right back speaker, i wired backwards - on +, + on -. a few mins latter the speakers started to hit alot harder. every once in a while the cd player shuts off and comes back on when both fr and rear speakers are on. if this helps i read the back of the speaker.

oh i did have this cd player in it once and had no problems.

Rusted out is the key here.....

Ensure the CD player has a good solid "GROUND" point to connect to. Poor ground connections can result in a severe enough Voltage drop to Starve "Power Hungry " accessories. On a rainy night, with the wipers , Lights, and defroster running, you may experience similar symptoms.
