    Music much louder on right speaker then left when BB plugged into car?

    I am having an issue where I can use my BB Tour in my car using a 3.5mm hack output and the music plays fine, but its dramatically louder coming from the right speaker, and the left speaker is extremely dim.

    Does anyone have a clue what this could be related to? Its happening with both stock and beta software. When I plug my phone in with headphones, everythings perfectly fine. However when I plug an ipod or recently a droid into my car, those both worked flawlessly.

    Any help would be extremely great. Thank you.

    Welcome to ! Sounds like the hack you are using doesn't work as intended.

    The hack? I am using a 3.5mm wire from the blackberry to the car aux in on the front of the unit.

    Thank you for the welcome!

    You called it a hack... I suspect it's either a bad jack, or not the matching up with the rings correctly. Would have to try some other jacks to see if it works or not.

    What are you plugging into the 1/8" jack? A cassette adapter? A 1/8" to 1/8" cable? I'd think the cable is bad, or like Sunkast said; the 1/8" plug itself (or in the case of a cassette adapter, the adapter itself)

    Also, I believe the BB's headset jack is designed for a 3-pole wire, so if the 1/8" plug only has 2 rings it might not work correctly

    Oh wow spelling mistake there lol. Sorry. The jack thats plugged into the blackberry is a 3 ring 3.5mm plug, like a headphone plug, that plugs the other end of the wire into a AUX jack in the stereo unit. The stereo plug is identical on both sides, one goes in the blackberry, the other in the head unit. Everything but my blackberry works with it. I have changed cables, changed software, and exchanged my phone. No go on anything. But ipods and zunes both work perfectly.

    Sorry for the spelling mixup

    Have to agree with Sunkast. Anytime your having trouble with speakers where a jack is concerned, 9 times out of 10 the jack is pooched. More than likely in the wires leading into the jack itself. I have yet to find a jack that will last more than a year in that area.

    If you are having troubles with only the blackberry I would try pluggin it into someone elses car and see if you get the same issue. If not you have then eliminated one of the problems and go back to the the cable and head unit. What I believe it to be is that you have a stereo jack for this, when in reality you need to have a stereo plus mic jack for the blackberry because there are 3 different connections in there.. mic, left and right speaker.
