    Speakers not working. Diagnostic help!

    Hello everyone

    my gf recently got a used 2000 civic and her speakers weren't working. I spent $20 and got her some new ones. the $20 pyle ones 6.5''

    anyways, I hooked them up and only the right side speakers work.
    The left one doesn't work and the speakers that were in there before wasn't working either. So now I have no idea what could be wrong with it.

    I checked the pos/neg connections and the wire from car copper wires to speaker silver wire looks like it has a good connection.
    I checked the volume -_- and I even tried changing the balance and fader to front left only and still nothing.

    The speakers aren't broken because I switched it with a working one and there was still no sound.

    I have some pics but I don't think it'll help.

    My guesses are it has something to do with the car wiring inside the door or maybe the stereo. How can i go able checking and fixing this problem?

    I am a newbie at car audio, only thing I've had experience with is a simple amplifier to subs.

    You say it "looks like it has a good connection", but have you tested the wiring to make sure there's actually power?

    I haven't and I think that might be the problem. What kind of meter am i supposed to use to see if there's power?
    If there's no power, how do I find out which part is faulty?
    The wires, the source?
    Is it expensive to buy the meter because I wouldn't have much use for it afterwards? Or should I just take it to a shop and have them look at it?

    Multimeters are cheap. Harbor Freight was giving them away free with any purchase a while back.

    okay got it. So I'm supposed to test it at where the connection to the speakers are? correct?

    And if they're dead, where do i test next?

    I also read it might be something wrong with the fuses and i'd need to get them replaced
