It is crucial to determine which model of audio drivers are being tested. Then, disconnect the outside speakers from the two terminals on the back of the amplifier. Put a DC ohm meter across the terminals. If the reading is higher than the listed value, then one or more of the drivers could be open, or a connection is corroded. If lower, one or more drivers or the wiring may be shorted.

Testing Speakers

It is crucial to determine which model of audio drivers are being tested. Then, disconnect the outside speakers from the two terminals on the back of the amplifier. Put a DC ohm meter across the terminals. If the reading is higher than the listed value, then one or more of the drivers could be open, or a connection is corroded. If lower, one or more drivers or the wiring may be shorted.
