I have a Kia Sorento and my 2 front door speakers suddenly stopped working as if they're getting no power. All other speakers produce sound including the 2 front tweeters which are located on the same doors on top. What could be the issue?

Its possible that the speaker distribution may have accidently been modified.  Most radios will give you the option to send the sound out through the rear or front, left or right speakers.  

It is possible (but unlikely) that the speakers just went on strike at the same time.  The wiring harness going to the door may have a damaged wire or wires that are causing this issue.  It is also possible that there is an internal fault in the radio itself that is not sending a signal to the speakers.

The easiest way to figure out what is going on would be for a technician to remove the door panel and unplug the speaker.  Using a voltmeter, the technican should be able to determine if the speaker is getting a signal and go from there to figure out why the speaker is not working.
