Why not. There's a wood blank bezel in my Ford Ranger where a car stereo used to be. I don't have details, but I may be answering my own question here. That was the second stereo to just croak suddenly on me. It was a sub-$100 JVC 50w per channel deck. One day it just had no sound. 9 months old with not a lot of use.
I started to go through the warranty proceedure and gave up and tossed it.


If I get around to replacing it, I plan to rewire the whole system. Same thing happened to the Ford stock stereo before it.
Is it the front speakers I put in? They were discards from a customer's house. Ceiling speakers. They were dual speakers with a crossover. I put them in the doors, and had a couple small Jensen speakers behind the seat. I don't know the ohms rating.

Question is, did I overload the amp and cook the decks with my unmatched speakers?

maybe, most house speakers are 8ohms ans most car speakers are 4 ohms, 8 is actually safer than 4, what year ranger is it? if its old it may have a common ground speaker system and that would ruin a deck. id run new speaker wire to the doors, when most aftermarket decks see a shorted wire or blown speaker they stop audio output but still turn on.

It's a '93. But somebody had some pretty funky speaker wiring off the stock radio. I saved the stock connectors with legends on them. Each speaker had its own ground.

That's exactly what happened. Is that something that can be switched back on or is it fatal to the deck? What happens, does a power transistor blow or something? I didn't think an 8Ω speaker would kill the deck.

do you have any brands you like best?

Next time I'll rewire everything.

if you still have the radio it might still work, to test it hook it up but dont hook up any speakers, then just hook up one speaker to see if it plays.
ive been out of the 12v audio for a few years now but ive had the pioneer d3 in my last 2 jeeps and its only now starting to give me eject problems.
