So, my first patrol, an '03 GU had the front passenger door speaker blow, though oh damn, traded 03 for a 2011 5 years ago, then 2 years ago the same speaker fades in and out. I thought it was a coincidence, but I just bought another GU, a 2012 chopped 4 door ute and guess what? THE SAME BLOODY SPEAKER works one day, stops the next, starts..stops.. any clues?

The factory speakers are very cheap rubbish, built just for a price and never last. Any aftermarket name brand speaker will be 10 times better quality than the factory stuff. Just buy a set of aftermarket speakers and replace the originals instead of replacing the whole vehicle each time 馃槅.

other than that I鈥檇 say just a coincidence that it is the passenger side. Certainly no coincidence that a speaker failed they all do. Maybe the wiring is longer/shorter on that side but they all go sooner or later and often sooner if you stick in an aftermarket head unit without replacing the speakers.

X2, been a while but I did my fronts many years ago when I upgraded head unit, there are a number of threads on this. Testing my memory but I seem to rememer I went to a 6.5" speaker as opposed o std 6" and they fitted.
Back ones are playing up now so need to do them soon. Hmmmm! A Corona project.
