Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this.

It sounds to me like we may have an issue in the radio. The speakers all run out on separate circuits, so it should not be a wiring issue. The only thing the speakers have in common is the radio.

Are you able to try swapping back to the stock radio to test the sound? This will let us know if the radio has failed
