    My best answer is that it is the wiring for the front speakers. Maybe an internal break in the wire that through the suttle vibration makes and loses contact. I've had the same issue except for me it was a loose connection at the speakers but still the same symptoms.

    Just my two cents.

    Do what Will said first, run new speaker wires from the HU to the speakers. If that doesn't solve the problem, you can do the swap.

    Will also said to try hooking the rear outputs (which we know work) from the deck up to the front speakers to see if it is the internal amps front channel. Which was good advice.

    If it happens to be the internal amp and I do decide to buy some decent components for the front, is the head unit going to have enough power to make it sound decent? It's rated for 52 watt max, 20 rms. Or am I going to have to invest in an amp to drive the speakers? I notice a little lacking with my 6x9's but if i'm only going for high end sound, will the head unit be enough?

    If you invest in a strong compnent set for the fronts, you will need to give them an amplifier. The deck does not have enough power except for basic speakers.

    50 watts RMS from a clean amplifier is all you need. More if budget permits. Do a decent 4 channel x 50 watts rms and you will be fine for your interiors.

    a head-unit on it's own won't do the trick. it is rated 20Wrms, but already with loads of distortion... also if you have decent speakers, some ****ty HU wont get the max out of your speakers, when it comes to detail, tonality en all that...
