Some aggravating issues.

Ok so I installed a double din in my prelude and yes I done it the right way in terms of wiring it up and all that but since day one of me owning my lude I can't get the rear deck speakers to work. I looked into it and I see in the fifth gens there is an afs unit that causes some complications. My question is could that be what is wrong with my prelude? I have a 4th gen though. I've looked up and down for the unit and can't find it or get my back speakers to work I don't have any settings changed to make it not work on my radio so I'm kinda stumped. Please help. All other speakers work but the back ones. I looked at other posts and no one has chimed in on old posts.

Re: Some aggravating issues.

Run your own wires from the deck to the speakers. Problem solved.

Re: Some aggravating issues.

The deck speaker's wiring in my car crapped oout on me within two weeks of a new stereo as did my front left. Run new wires and you'll be set like said above. And then if you ever decide to amplify them it makes it much easier lol.

Re: Some aggravating issues.

Generally if the old wires used to work, they should still work.

This should be in the ice section, right?

Anyway how many speakers are you trying to run and have you split anything as in tweeters off the 6x9 etc?

One more thing... your sig is flipping off everybody. Noooooot that many folks rush to aid someone flipping them off... just sayin'...

Re: Some aggravating issues.

We would need to know how you wired it. For example, I used the stock harness and A conversion harness from the auto parts store spliced into my new radio harness (universal wire colors)

How'd you wire it? Hardwired? If I wanted my original radio, I could just unplug mine and pop it in

Honda's wiring isn't the most amazing lol. Like I said mine went after two weeks of putting in New speakers.... Could be because the vibration of my solid mounts too though lol

Re: Some aggravating issues.

if you know the connections are GOOD where you spliced the wiring for your NEW rear deck speakers, then you likely have a damaged wire(s) between the radio and your speakers.

I've had CD players with damaged outputs before (both new and used ones). Do yourself a favor and use a small section of wiring to test the rear speaker outputs at the radio itself. This will also help you confirm a wiring harness issue.

Like others said...just run your own wiring, OR use a small amp and power the rear deck speakers, and let the headunit power the fronts.

OR buy a cheap multimeter (Has voltage measuring, ohm measuring, and amperage measure). You could use the voltmeter to see if your rear speaker wires have any voltage.
And you'd also be able to check the resistance of your wiring to see if its opened/broken/shorted.

If you don't have a multimeter or don't know how to use it confidently...ask someone who does, or save yourself the headache and just run new wiring.

Good luck. My first car was a 91 Maxima and like you the sound system sh!t the bed within weeks of having it. Ran ALL new speaker wires to all speakers, (including adding extra ones) using scrap wiring that my friends dad had laying around.
