Only bass coming from rear speaker?

as some guys know i had my car gone for a while getting a new head gasket, when i got the car back about 2 1/2 weeks later, my alpine speakers in the back seats did not play vocals, only bass. i checked all fuses, and wires everything seems to be fine. tried the speaker in a friends car and it played. the audio guy in newton told me it was blown tweeters, but obviously not if it played in another car. any ideas?

thats all i really have, stock speakers everywhere except the rear seats and and aftermarket headunit, did yours play only bass with those speakers or with any speaker you tried?

befor i went with the entire redo of the sound system i did try to find out why it only played bass, and i could not come up with why.

If you have to get prices on getting a couple of speakers installed...you might NOT be a car guy lol also i dont believe that about par troy mark is pretty helpful over there especially if he did your install

No issues with Par Troy here either nor have I heard anything bad about them. They usually help me out with advice even if I don't end up buying anything from them.
