Hey guys, I'm new to this board and I'm also a relatively new 93 Acura Legend L owner. I also have no knowledge whatsoever about car audio. Here is my story:

I've had the car for a few months and I love it. However, I really wanted a CD changer so I recently purchased the Alpine CHM-S630 6 CD changer and the Peripheral ACUALP adapter. The installation went fine and when I tested it out the sound was good and everything seemed normal. Later that night I took the car out for a ride and I was listening to some CDs at a normal volume and once again, it was fine. The next day was around a 95 degree scorcher in Southern California and when I went to take my car out at 2 pm in the afternoon my right rear speaker started making loud popping and distorted noises when the volume was still at a normal level. I figured I had blown out the speaker completely and I needed to replace it. However, later that night when it cooled down my right rear speaker was fine and the sound was perfect again. So I guess this is where I should ask my questions:

1) Is it just the heat that is frying the rear speaker during the day? I mean it seems blown out to me but it's just weird that it is PERFECT at night.

2) Is it completely blown out? If so, what kind of speaker should I replace it with. I know that it's a 6 X 9 speaker. But is there an amp built into the speaker like I've heard about with these Bose system speakers? Will a 4 ohm aftermarket speaker work? Will the sound actually be WORSE than it was before since these speakers were made specifically for this Bose system? Obviously, I will replace both rear speakers if I have to. Remember, I'm clueless.

All I want is the old sound back. I'm a poor college student so I have very little money to spend. I already splurged on that CD changer. ANY help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance guys.

chances are the heat is effecting your speakers. those speakers are almost 10 years old you can't expect much out of them. U said u have the L model? Just get yourself some affordable 6x9 like kenwood or something if money is an issue and you should be happy with it.
