They wouldn't work anymore- the cellophane tape that holds the 8-track tape loop together gives up after 40 years and the audio tape comes unravelled. Leave it in there for retro looks, but get a Bluetooth device for pumping iPod and Pandora through the new speakers you will need also.

I'll see what Woodys can do. If they can integrate an iPod connection plug then I'll leave them where they belong. It would be so much easier to leave them. I wouldn't have to fabricate a new front panel for a head unit to mount to.

Well, I got the 'entertainment center' down. What I found was the fuse to the radio portion was missing. No wonder I got no lights or sound.

And the 2 rockers? They were wired to the speakers. It looks like you could control if you wanted the front, rear, or all four speakers playing. Snazzy.

On my motorcycle I have a Bluetooth receiver that is one knob- one hole to drill- it does power, volume, previous and next track. You will need a separate amplifier. I have a small Alpine 90 watt per channel amp on the bike. You gotta replace them 40 year old speakers anyway. I have Rockford Fosgate 6 3/4" coaxials on the bike.

I still have the original antenna attached to the AS. It could use a new rubber gasket on the outside though.

If I could do it, I'd have the 8 track disabled and have a iPod connector or Bluetooth module attached to the Motorola am/fm receiver. Right now there is a wire with a plug going from the 8 track to the am/fm. I guess they were supposed to be used as a pair.

So I was right then, back in post #9
Looks like something I used to do in my '58 Chevy for the front/rear speakers. That was back when I was 'cool'. Now... I'm still cool, just don't look like it anymore

Glad you found the answer.

Yep, you were right

In looking at the picture of the pair, I can't separate them because the Balance and the Bass/Treble are located on the 8 track. It'll probably be better to buy a new old looking unit than to pay for the 8 track and the am/fm to be fixed.
