Title: Rear speaker upgrade
Post by: Snowcats95 on March 11, 2015, 02:25:25 AM
Looking around the local j.y. I found an Aztek Rally with the rear speaker option.  Is the base 'Tek (like mine) wired for rear speakers so I can plug and play or will I have to run wires to make them work?  Thanks

They are not pre-wired that I know of. I've taken a few apart over the past several months and have not found any extra wiring for the rear speakers and controls.

So bumping this up.  I have an '04 base and would like to add rear hatch 6x9 speakers.   Has anyone done this?  Does anyone have tips on how to do the wiring ?

There is an article about some audio and speaker options here:

It looks like the rear speaker control and speakers is determined by the full body harness. I guess it's possible there could be a sub-harness in the back that could be removed and added as a plug and play, or disassembled and add the pins to your original harness. I need to pull one apart because I want to add it to the base Tek I have as well.

Well it does look like it will be a harness replacement. The stock base radio does not use a amplifier, and once you upgrade to the higher audio package everything runs through the amplifier. This would be a pretty big task to add in the rear speakers and radio controls in the hatch area.

Hi.. Sorry did not get any notifications of replies to my post.  Still interested.  I am not looking to have  rear audio controls separate from the main speakers. 
All I wanted to do is run wiring from the back seat speakers through the panels / or floor and up into the rear hatch area..  I would like to know if there are any good ways to run the wiring.  or not.

I may just wire an amplifed sub I have and upgrade the door speakers if needed.
