Default Help with Twiddlers going out

I have a DNX572BH kenwood unit, hooked to GM0S-04 interface.
Randomly, sometimes 30 seconds, sometimes 2-3 minutes, the twiddlers in the front will quit, everything else continues to work.
turning the radio or car off and on resets it to working status. Other than that issue, everything works great, minus a few missing beeps here and there which I can live with.

1) I've tried replacing the 3.5 speakers, first with polks I had on a shelf then with brand new kickers.
2) after much soul-searching, I decided to tear into the dash and see what was up. Moving the potentiometer on the GMOS-04 box when the twiddlers quit cause them to return. They eventually quit again.

I don't know if my issue is with the interface box or the bose amp. Car has 90k miles, previous owner did the install (or had it done, looks professional)
I could spend $90 on a PAC RP5 GM11, but if Im spending $100, I may as well spend $150 and get a 5 channel skar amp to wire around it all....

Any ideas on where to go from here?

I just hooked all this up and my next step will be to build a conventional system with an amp wired directly to the speakers and avoid the whole integration thing. If your good with hooking up an amp, changing the front speakers to component..get rid of the bose woofers and getting a sub..I think you'll be much happier. It will cost more than the price of the amp though...RCA cables, speaker cables, power cables, new speakers for the front. The 3.5's will not be enough. Something for the rear. Sub or new speakers or both.

My guess is it's most likely something with the interface. A short or bad connection. I had something similar happen when I was doing my install. Some speakers were cutting out. I replaced the Pac RP5-GM11 with another one and no issues. Luckily I noticed it during testing before I reinstalled everything.

It's the name given to the 3.5" Bose speakers. It's not really a tweeter. It's kind of half way between a tweeter and a middle range speaker....AKA a "twiddler".

Twiddler is easier than saying "not a tweeter, but that small speaker there."
