    ensure all your speaker wires are properly connected?

    Try the bypass mode to see if this works ?

    Code:
     Verify that the tweeter and midrange are working properly by putting your ear up to the front of speaker unit. Adjust the brilliance (tweeter level) and presence (midrange level) controls, if any, in back. >>> the kids play their games, etc. Do they turn the sound up really loud? Could they have blown the tweeter? Video games can produce audio with an unnaturally high high frequency content and cranking the volume can blow tweeters before their time.
