    So I had an issue with Mid range door speakers (original OEM 2006) they would work sometimes, Just replaced all speakers with "Kicker speakers" same problem, tweeters and Sub working only? Any suggestions?

    Are you still using the OEM CD Player/Radio for a Source? Either something cratered inside that OR the AMP OR the wiring to/from these components.

    This link contains the Pinouts for the OEM Amp:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=inf...0IDQIHc2oCWwQ9QF6BAgEEAE#imgrc=qwFkEJ7WOV1pmM

    It looks like the AMP uses separate pins for separate Speakers (understandable) so each Speaker type will receive ONLY the frequencies they should; similar to a Crossover Network on Home Stereo Speakers, but more complicated.

    Other than the issue at hand, how do the Kickers sound? How does the woofer sound?

    Stock amp may be giving up the ghost. I know Kicker sold and OEM replacement amp..(77KICK18AB). I have this and it complements my OEM Kicker speaker upgrade very well.

    Its been discontinued.. like almost everything else for our trucks but I have had luck calling around or searching the crevasas of the internet.

    check the door wiring harness. I lost my back door speakers due to broken wiring, and those harnesses can be had online.

    That's a 10" woofer, correct? What size are the door speakers? I want to replace all of mine, except for the ones in the dash. What type of amp are/did you go with?
