rear speakers

I have two rear speakers in the motorhome, mounted above the beds. They seem to be disconnected , and I would like to know if anyone has worked on them and where the wiring runs. Ir seems from the schematic that it runs up thru the roof. Anyone rewire or replace these? I might make a plug in for them so I can tap them for stereo.

Alan, all I know is that they drop down from above. Your guess is as good as mine on where they run. Sure is peculiar that both are out.
I replaced those rear 5 1/4" speakers with 6x9 using a special plastic mounting plate that allows for the greater depth of the 6x9. Made a huge difference in the sound quality.

They seem to be disconnected
In my Bambi, two of the speakers "seemed" to be disconnected also. When I pulled the speakers, one had the wires disconnected, which was simply a matter of reconnecting the spade connectors and crimping them tight, and on the other, the wire from the stereo/cassette had worked itself loose. again, just a matter of tracing the existing wire and reconnecting. You have probably already checked these things, but...........

Thanks for the tips. My stereo was replaced recently, and there were more screwy loose wires under the dash then I could count. The last stereo install was a mess. I redid all the wiring and cleaned it up, but never did find those rear wires. Its low on the totem pole of important repairs, but will be getting my attention again soon.
