    Have a 2007 Cobalt LS with standard radio with CD. Front speakers not working. Based on posts I suspected the front speakers have gone bad. Replaced with new speakers but still no sound. Checked the radio wiring harness and everything looked good.

    What to look at next?

    Thanks

    Have you checked the stereo configuration that is well balanced? If not, it may not work, replace it, there are many options and buy the adapters by ebay.

    Could you explain further. It has a factory CD radio. The rear speakers work.

    Thanks

    I know this is elementary, but did you check the settings and see if it is adjusted (faded) all the way to the rear speakers ?
    If it is adjusted to centered for both front and rear speakers, see if adjusting to all the way to the front speakers does.
    If you still have no sound, pull the stereo head unit and see if the factory harness is connected properly. If there was a previous owner, they may have butchered the harness to install a custom unit & just rigged the original radio up to the rear speakers to have some sound to sell the car to you.

    If everything looks good behind the radio, get a wiring diagram and tap into the wires on the vehicle side of the harness plug for the front speakers and see if you can get some spare speakers to work from there.

    My front speakers stopped working, too. Did you find the solution?
