JA: Who manufactured the spa?
Customer: Bullfrog
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, the prescribed check would require a multi-meter set to its Ω function. Each speaker should show a reading of at least 2 Ohms. Then from the speakers, the speaker wires should be traced back to the universal harness AQ-UNH-2 and the same Ω checks done on its connector pins.

Please click HERE for the universal harness AQ-UNH-2's pinout (if needed).

If the speaker, its wires, harness and connector checks good, then it would most likely be an internal hardware issue with the AQ-DM-4UBT.

All the wiring seems to be good.... if it is an internal issue, is that something a novice could fix?
Expert:  Louie replied 11 months ago.

Attempting a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach would require access to and familiarity with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron.

Ok, guess I am calling a repair man.... thanks!

I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.

No worries, I thought that might be the case, but I had to try... thanks!

Good luck and thank you too for the opportunity to be able to share the information.
