    I just noticed that the 2 speakers behind and in between the seats do not work. Tried to use the fader to see if that works, but no luck. Took the car to 2 diff car stereo shops and they won't touch it, "because it's a Ferrari." Hahahaha.

    Any help is appreciated!

    There is no "fader" usage in the Ferrari's.

    The unit between the seats is Ferrari's ridiculous answer to a subwoofer.

    If it's not working, the plug is not engaged of the driver w/in the unit has gone bad.

    If the car is under warranty Ferrari should fix it.

    If not the "cabinet" unit has to be removed and checked or the driver has to be changed out.

    FYI, there are not 2 rear speakers, 1 is an active speaker, the other is passive for air movement. If you want to retain the "stock" look, as I did in my cars, keep the factory head unit, get a small amp and hide it under the dash or in the trunk, and replace the pitiful excuse for speakers with something better like Alpine or Morel. I have done the same thing with my Scud and my CS and you would visually never be able to tell.
