Just finished my install several weeks ago and have been dealing with this issue for the past 10 days or so now. The driver seems to be dead after the car is started and running. After about 15 minutes or so, the speaker starts crackling and then operates as normal. I've checked both drivers by switching inputs and they both function normally except for this one channel. Signal is piped to a DSP then to the amp via RCA, which then actively drives the front midbass drivers and sub. The odd thing is the "dead" speaker's passive component works while the main driver is dead.
I've checked the power and it all seems to check out fine. The only thing I can think of at this point is that it's just too darn cold here in the mornings. We've been in a deep freeze for quite some time now with temps well below 0 at night. Is it possible that the amp/dsp need to get up to operating temp before they fire all channels properly?
Appreciate any helpful feedback!
