I seem to be having troubles with one speaker(left rear),i have checked all wires,grounds ect,its a brand new speaker and i have tested it in my brothers car and it works MY car it will work sometimes,cut out constantly and make loud popping noises accompanied with its semi-working state.

-so what i want to know is if these cars (89-94 with stock stereo,cassette)have amps.the reason being is im not sure if it is the stereo freaking out or a possible short in an amp; if it has one.if so, im going to rewire everything to completely bypass the supposed amp to avoid trouble.
-If they do have them,are they located behind the glovebox?there is a blue square box behind my glove compartment that i THOUGHT was the computer but there is also a silver box in the trunk with a bazillion wires coming out of it which leads me to assume THAT is the computer(it says A/T on it if that helps) but i don't want to touch anything without being sure.
-SO,basically if anyone knows if these cars(7MGE cressidas) have stock amps and where they are located PLEASE let me know,it will be great help to me lol,thank you in advance

the box in the trunk is for the ABS. I believe but am not positive that if you have a factory CD head unit, the amp will be under the passenger seat. if you don't have that, the amp is internal to the head unit and cannot be bypassed/repaired unless you want to tear it apart and start soldering components inside (WAAAAY cheaper easier to get an aftermarket head unit.)
lol,i always get an answer right when i figure it out haha,no it didnt have one i have the factory cassette,reason why i was asking is because i bought a new HU but i got it installed perfectly ,mind you i gashed my finger open and electrocuted myself before finishing but i managed lol,i just have less hair on my hand/arm LOL,thanks anyways though i appreciate it
