Strangely, I've never heard of the tweeter dB button getting "stuck"
Something is warning me that you have fried your highs and the heat generated could have very well melted the unit that holds the mids and highs.
If it were under warranty, honestly, our service section would have replaced the entire unit that holds the mids and highs. Even though it isn't the fault of the speaker.

I would like to point out once again that no expert here recommends the use of an equalizer (esp. a pioneer 6500) in your car, unless you know precisely what it is made for and use it correctly. I speak for anyone on this or any forum that knows his audio. Mainly because no one knows how to use an equalizer (it is used to equalize the sound, not boost it).

The 6500 is an extinct unit now. It was handy when head units didn't have more than a pair of pre-outs. I'd feel like a bozo to route my signal through one of them. Most head units have electronic equalizers that do the job better, and dont need to go through the 6500s antique rustic electronics.

I already have. There is no occurence of any suck "stuck" buttons.

Was any glue/chemical used during the installation/cleaning process?

You must realise that they are push button switches. Yes, switches can fail and get stuck, but 2 identical switches failing on a pair fit in your car (And you say both were working before), sounds most irregular.
PS- I am in a position to tell you, that yours is the only such case in India (and possibly world-wide)
I recommend you return the speakers to your dealer.

Are the switches exposed? If so did someone keep something heavy like books on them? I have not seen the 937 so excuse the newbie questions. Just covering any uncovered ideas.

Hey Guys,

Not aware what the prob is but i had a similar case in My Marutis JBL 6X9, that too within a week of purchase. However Sam may be right as i too had used a pioneer HU and used to fiddle with equalises often, but again speakers should be able to handle a bit of rough handling what say?

ask your installer to replace these with another pair. the "fluttering" might be a wiring issue (ground loop) and not the speaker.

are the buttons stuck in the "in" or "out" position?
