Rear C/S = 174/50

Thanks Terry
Thanks Jim, Ididn't realize you wern't online when I PMed you and after I posted I e-mailed you.

Thanks Gary
All my wires are grey and may have a stripe one one of the pair for polarity reasons. They may have changed to color coding a year or two later. I will do the measuring and then try to peel the inner skin back some before i do any cutting just to see how far off the 72 vs the 69 are. Being it looks to be positioned aft of the window above bed I may not have too much trouble peeling the skin back some.I will definitely let everyone know what I find.

Thanks again to all your help
John

thanks guys, I'll tried running the tape measure back and that measurement for the twin comes to the middle of the goucho window (the 72 had the fridge on the curbside that year instead of the street side). I'm thinking of trying to remove the nearby electrical outlet box and look behind it, I just know how dang short those wires are and what a pain in the but it is to get them on and off the outlet.

Goransons,
E-mail tech at AS. They told me on mine that the wires were 16 inches in front of wardrobe 50 inches off floor. I'm still investigating this before I do any drilling. Don't know if I will have time before I go out of town this weekend, but after I get back its on to find the wires. If I remember tonight I will measure where the wires turn to go down wall to see if it is approx the 16 inches they say. I tried the outlet box the other night and found nothing there,may have moved around in 39 years though.

Contacted AS tech and they gave me the following info:

We show that on the 1969 25’ T the curbside rear speaker wire can be found in the wall, 14" forward of bed window lever, 50" above floor. I hope this helps.

Tech

14" forward of the window arm is about 6" away from the outlet there, and at the same height (to center). I just killed the breaker and removed the 4 screws holding the outlet box to the inner skin, and used a long screwdriver to push the insulation out of the way, and sure enough, set of speaker wires taped to the outside skin with the same type of masking tape they taped the AC wires up with. Next just need to find a set of speakers and we're golden.

thanks for the lead on the Tech email, and thanks to everyone who helped out.

Look forward John to hearing that you've found yours as well once you get back in town.
