Unhappy New Speakers In Crew Cab

Just put new 6*8 240watts max. Alpine and Pioneer Speakers in my 07 PSD not sure why its not starting in 30 deegree weather. Could the higher watt speaker without an amp ran to them be Draining my Battery????
But stock speakers that came out were 25 watt max. Maybe a pioneer 7" DD touch screen headunit fix this problem??

The speakers should have NOTHING to do with your starting system.

Doesn't matter how much power they put out your stock headunit probably only puts out 30-40 watts per speaker.

You've either killed your battery leaving something on or you have bigger problems than swapping out speakers.

Strokinallday: The wattage rating of a speaker has nothing to do with battery drain. Unless you have a amp on them and they are cranked up. Your remarks say no amp. So if your just playing OEM stereo eq the batteries shouldn't drain that fast. Maybe someone else will chime in ...Good Luck....Steve
