Speakers Not Working Properly

I am having a problem with the speakers for my car stereo. When I turn on the car and turn the radio on, no speakers work but the radio is working. There are four speakers two front and two rear. When I remove the positive terminal on the right front speaker and reconnect it, all of the speakers come on. After I turn off the car, and turn the car back on, no speakers work but the radio is working. I have to again disconnect and reconnect the positive terminal to get the speakers to work. The connections on the speakers are fine. Any idea what is going on here? I would really appreciate your help.

Try swapping the front left and the front right speakers with each other.
If the fault occurs again, see if it is now the front left speaker which needs to be disconnected. If it is, the problem is the speaker, if it is not, the problem is likely the speaker wiring or the stereo.

Sounds like faulty wiring. I've had this happen to me a few times and at the end, the culprit is usually me. Hope is wiring or returning products is annoying. Keep us posted please. Thx!
