I always did the 9V battery test real quick to see if the speaker itself was dead. I know it's not good for them but it sure was easy.

As long as you don't try it on a small midrange or tweet and you don't leave it on there for long then it won't cause any problems

Get in the trunk, unplug the wires going to the speaker that's not working, set the multimeter to read AC voltage and put it on the wires in the plug while playing music to see if you get any voltage. While you have the speaker unplugged you can set the multimeter to read resistance and put it on the speaker's terminals to see what it reads.

holy cow!
i was tinkering with the audio system, when I realised that another speaker was playing music at a very low volume as compared to its right hand side counterpart.

in this case how do i check what is wrong?
i still have the multimeter

i was thinking of
front
and
rear

25 bones spending limit? That just made me laugh my ass off. All I can tell you to do is get some of them cheap speakers from wal-mart. You need to save your money and invest in a 40-50 dollar pair of speakers. I like my Pioneers that I got about 3 monthes ago...They are only 50 watts rms but they sure do sound good. And they came with my Pioneer radio. My sister has some 5" sonys and they thump pretty hard for such little speakers without an amp. Like I say...go for the better quality audio equipment.

To find the size, measure the diameter of the speaker (the total diameter). If it's around 7" then it's a 6.5" speaker, if it's around 5.5-5.75" then it's a 5.25" speaker. You aren't going to find any full range speakers worth buying for that price, if this is for the rears then the best you can do is buy a pair of raw drivers from partsexpress and screw the tweets, just watch the mounting depth so you don't run into the trunk lid's torsion bars. If it's for the front, then you should really save up more money to buy something decent.
