minimal output from stereo
This is in my 1974 El Camino. Head unit is an old jensen 15w/ch shaft style tape deck. I just got new 6x9s in some enclosures for the behind the seat. A previous owner had been running some radio shack 8 ohm cone 4x10s in the doors.
Everything seems working but sound is very muffled from any channel. The new speakers work fine when hooked to another source.
Radio seems to be wired properly as far as it only comes on when the ignition is, etc.
I checked the radio fuse in the panel and the inline fuse and both are good. It seems to share a common ground on the left and right side between front and rear. Any thoughts?
I'm torn between trying to possibly find a new head unit that wont require cutting the dash or try hooking up a small amp using the inputs off the head unit.
Any ideas of other things to try? So far the only place I've found that still sells the old shaft style units is AZ has 3 different ones and only the "high end" one has a digital tuner and runs $69.
