Hey folks, my stock radio - or speakers - or both are dying. Since cash is tight was going to replace one before the other, but which one? This is what's happening. When the car is cold, all that works are the small tweeters by the windshield. As the car heats the other speakers come alive, mostly on the left side. Sometimes the right side speakers join in. Would y'all think this is the head unit or speakers?

You can test speakers with a 9 volt battery. Are the speakers in the doors and may have frozen moisture on them?

They are in the doors and her in SC rarely get cold enough to have frozen moisture! But cold definitely affects the system.

Open the door panel and check the connections before assuming it's the head unit.
