1988 mustang door speakers

ok. so the guy that owned this car before me must have been a retard.. the cords were cut and spliced.. (no direct plugs inside the door) so i tried to wire a speaker to the wires that were in there and nothing happened..
Any ideas?

Well it sounds like you have no power in the speaker. He might have cut the wires at the radio too.

1990 Mustang GT with AOD transmission-quite a bit done to it. First mustang I had, & still have.
2003 Mustang GT-Total lost by a friend into a golf course. RIP GREY GHOST

This should help with the wiring to the speakers.

I went all out on my stereo. I don't have subs or anything like that, but I put 6 new speakers in my car. 2 in the dash, 2 in the doors and the 2 in the rear quarter panel plastic. Running a Kenwood head unit and all new wiring sounds really good. Nothing to expensive, whole thing costed about 375 bucks. Plain and simple. Can't hear bass anyway with one chamber Flowmasters and no tailpipes yet.

( Carter ) 1993 Mustang GT - "Blackie" - The go-getter.
1991 LX 2.3 5 Speed Hatch - Family Mustang
1969 F-100 390 4 speed - Project Rustoleum

Summit Racing and Latemodel Restoration Supply have brought me this far, my imagination will bring me all the way.

I'm re-wiring my radio to all my speakers too. The previous owner(s) cut the wires for some reason.

Yeah thats why I added 2 alpine 5-1/4 with components, 2 Alpine 6-1/2 and 2 Alpine 10" type R subs. Ea set all on their own amp ran by a Alpine flip-up DVD. Just in case I get tired of those flowmasters with dumps or I feel like getting away and watching a movie in the garage! LOL

A lot of mustang owners have decent radio setups which do not usually make the sale. A good setup will require some better speaker wire than that 48 ga crap they use from the factory.

i did the same thing. the idiot that owned my car before though cut all of the wires to the rear speakers and ran the wires into the trunk. he told me it never had an amp or anything when i asked him so i have no clue why he did it.
