Unplug the dc lead to the speaker & if the cct breaker for the light is now ok you will have to swap over the wires going up to the light. After that all will be good.

Re: Hardwiring Speakers

What do you mean by 'CCT Breaker'?

Flipping the 15amp breaker indicated there is a reversal of wire to the light. If you unplug the speaker lead (the last thing you did) & the 15 breaker does not "flip" & the light works normally reverse the light wires & retry.

Re: Hardwiring Speakers

There each wired to their own 15amp breaker switch. Would one effect the other?

Re: Hardwiring Speakers

Sorry thought you just added the speaker to the same breaker as the light which was working ok before!! Speaker ok light on own 15 a breaker. Light on own 15 a breaker, shorted wires or something on that circuit.

Re: Hardwiring Speakers

Thanks for the help everyone. After exploring my other options it looks like there is a problem at the light. I guess I'll be climbing the mast.
