Speaker issue

I have stock speakers on a 17 RGS. Yesterday the front left stopped working correctly. I'm thinking about using this as an excuse to upgrade to Stage I speakers. But first I want to make sure that it is just the speaker.

The left speaker is still sort of working. It is operating at about 10% of the correct volume, with no bass. Does this sound like a speaker issue? Amp?

Also any reviews of HD Stage I fairing speakers?

Thanks

Try swapping the left and right speakers. If the problem follows to the right them you know it's the speaker. I honestly would stay away from Boom audio, of course this is just my opinion. Good luck!

I 100% agree with BH#103. Stay away from HD Boom Audio. I did a lot of reviewing threads on here and still asked a lot of questions when I was planning on upgrading. I ended up getting a Biketronics amp and speakers. To make a long story short, it sounds as good, or better, than HD Boom Stage II, and costs far less. As a bonus, they are a USA company, and came with a lifetime warranty.

Going to the garage now to swap speakers. With my mechanical abilities, it might be three days before I report back with the results. LOL

I heard about swapping wives but this is the first time I learned about swapping speakers.
