    Default Beware autoleads speaker cable adapters...

    Just a quickie...

    For weeks I have believed I am going deaf... all that loud music in the Sig with my Pioneers all round seemed to of taken its toll on my ear drums. I swore I had lost my lower range and could no longer hear bass...

    Then turning the corner one day listening to Oasis, my drivers side speaker got louder... then turned off again... on closer inspection today I had NO sound coming from either front door!!!! Just the small tweeters by the window

    Both sides were the pesky autoleads adapters I bought instead of cutting cables...

    My advice for today is... when upgrading your speakers, cut cables and hard wire them in. The Autoleads cable adapters are seriously poor quality and a bad fit...

    I've always used autoleads with no problems but I do tend to tweek the connectors slightly to give a tighter fit. I even do this on the separate crimp connectors aswell!!!

    Sure they were real autoleads cables ,, I got a Autoleads sot lead off eBay .
    While fitting it clearly wasn't , it didn't even lock in correctly
