Why does my car radio keep cutting out?

The problem is often in the speaker wiring. A break orcrimp in the speaker wiring, often where it passes into a door, cancause the sound to cut off entirely. The problem could alsobe a bad amplifier or bad wiring to the amplifier. If everythingelse checks out, the head unit itself may havefailed.
