Easy way - just start cutting wires til the speaker goes dead  - have window
rolled up first<g>  Seriously, if you knew which wires they were, it might
be easier to cut the wires and splice em later on. I am not sure if you
could just remove a wire from the harness on the radio connector plug in
back of the radio.

One of my fronts make a *very* high pitched whine after being on for about
20 mins. Doing anything that affects the voltage ( like stepping on the
brakes, turning head lights on/off, etc) changes the frequency ( lowers) of
the whine. It is constant volume also.

Let me know what you figure out as I may want to just disable my fronts
