Front speakers cut out

This morning my front speakers cut out. The underseat subs and rear speakers are still functional. Any suggestions on what to look for? Of course my warranty was up last week!

Stating which OEM audio system your M3 has could help some, you know?

Not sure exactly what the correct terminology is for my year (2008). Premium, top hifi? 13 speakers including tweeters and center channel in the dash. Grey amp in the trunk.

This happened with my minidisc player plugged into the auxiliary jack but is present with any source.

Thanks for the tip. I unplugged everything, USB, phone charger, and aux in, and the front channels came alive! Plugged it all back in and everything is fine. Not sure why unplugging them individually didn't do anything and switching sources to AM/FM or CD were affected too

MD is pretty dated but I still have some great underground hip hop shows I recorded off university radio stations many years ago. You have no idea how long I had a high end cassette deck so I could keep listening to my mixed tapes! You couldn't even buy a blank tape when I finally gave it up.

It still is my favourite physical format
Anyone who's ever had to respool a tape can agree
CDs suck, very easy to scratch
I still have 2 players and about 40 minidiscs
Including some original albums
I believe there was a few players that had USB?
I recall you could take the songs off of them into a PC
I used to visit minidisc.org many years ago for all the latest minidisc news
