Front speaker not working

I am having some issues with my stock front speakers. The other day my passenger side one wasnt working. Now my driver side one isnt working and the passenger is. Whats up? I dont know much about radio and speaker stuff. What should I do to try and figure out whats wrong? Thanks guys.

Have you installed a aftermarket radio or anything? Something could be shorting out.

is it stock? if so, turn the radio on with your front door open and give it a nice hit. stock setup usually has bad connections lol i have to hit mine every once in a while when im driving for it to work again hahaha. so ghetto i need speakers soon

I've got an aftermarket unit. I put it in the day I bought the truck. I've never had a problem until now. I pushed on the faceplate the other day and it fixed the passenger side for a while.

Take it out real quick and check out all of the wiring. Something could have come loose.

I used one of those converter plugs so I didnt have to do any splicing. I'll give it a look though when I get the chance.

i gotta do that to my front speakers too every so often, somtimes i can just turn the radio all the way up for a sec and they start working again, but the hitting fixes it the best haha
