Piaggio Porter door speakers

Post by PiaggioLux on Mon Apr 30, 2018 6:33 pm

The passenger side door speaker is giving me some static and distortion, especially in the bass range. One of the technicians at the Mini garage suggested that when they see this happen on the Minis, it is because the door may be contacting the speaker/speaker wire. He suggested I look in behind the speaker and check the wiring. Problem is that I am not sure how to get the mesh off of the speaker.

Any one with any ideas?

Here is the speaker in the door:



Also, if it helps, this is the factory installed kit in the van:

They usually push on, but it's probably better to take the door-card off as you'll have more room to inspect the wiring.

Before you do that, look at the wire where it goes from the door to the inside of the van - that's usually where a break or chafing will occur.

Thanks for the quick replies!

Should I just try prying them off then? The static/distortion started quite suddenly. Not sure why.

By “the door card” do you mean the blue paneling?

Shame that the sound is distorted as the quality is actually quite good!

Is there any possibility that the distortion could be coming from the radio itself?

If coming from the radio it would probably affect both speakers. Have you checked where I suggested? Yes, door-cards are the blue & gray panels on the doors.

Well, the speaker covers are attached to the door card. Pop the door card off and it's easy access to the speakers.

Wiring is fine all along including where it passes from the body to the door. I guess the speaker is done. Didn't try swapping speakers from the driver's side yet. But will do that to make sure.

Guess it's a new passenger side speaker for the fix.
