The most likely place for the intermittent speakers is at the Duo-Sound
switch (the headphone jack/switch on the rear deck). The rear speakers feed
through the switch. All four 5k's that I have owned had an intermittent
connection there. The crossover for the rear speakers is in the amp under
the rear deck. If you want to replace the amp, all the appropriate wires are
there to use an aftermarket unit. You will need an external crossover if you
want to connect the speakers in the rear doors. The connectors for the
existing amp will accept the standard 1/4" male spade lug connectors. A pair
of 6X9 speakers can be mounted under the rear deck also BTW. No cutting of
sheetmetal or wires is required.
