The 87 "Premium" stereo is a Blaupunkt Rothenburg. Both front and rear are
amplified in the head unit. The front feeds to a crossover network in each
door that splits the feed to a woofer and tweeter in the door, and midrange
in the dash. The rear feeds through the headphone box to the high impedance
amp which splits the signal to the midrange/woofer in the back, and the
tweeter in the rear door.
