Factory amp blown or radio?

50

Asked by Dec 27, 2015 at 05:31 PM about the 2013 Kia Forte EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turn my radio up my right speaker crackles
but when I turn my fader all the way right it doesn't
do it. I've taking my radio out and cleaned it. When
it would do it I'd smack my radio (cause hitting it is
going to make it work right?) Well it started
working and now it's not helping when I hit it.

I suspect the speaker cone is cracked.

Sorry Kiagirl2013 , I just couldn't resist. Smacking any electronic component, including a radio actually does bring it back to life... sometimes. No disrespect, no offense intended. Hope you had a Good Christmas to you and yours
