Re: 5kcstqw rear door speaker question (using the stock amp w/new radio)

You can just tap into the wires going to the door speakers.  Unplug the
connector from the amp, plug two spade connectors with wires into various
slots in the connector, touch the exposed end of the wires to the end of a
AA battery.  This will cause a scratching noise in the speaker (does not
harm the speakers) this will let you know where each combination of
connector slots routes.  I elected to not connect into the rear tweets
since the highs tend to pull the soundstage into the backseat.
