Speakers started sounding distorted and when I investigated I found the edges of the speakers had dry rotted. Of course the warranty was up so it was my problem. I have a 1994 Mitsubishi Diamante with the original speakers and the sound like they were just installed.

This damn wire has driven me nutz. The same wire has broken 3 times in different places in the door wire harness. It is cheap to fix but it can be hard to find the break sometimes. I am proficient with a volt meter and that is a big help. each time it has been the back door behind the driver door and it has been the white wire with a red stripe.
