Both front speakers died

Awhile back both of my stock front speakers quit working on my '97 SW. 1st one then the other... figured it was the power amp. As I was changing out my new LR automatic shift bezel, I decided to try and track down the problem. Turned out it was the factory wiring in the little rubber boot between the door and the frame. I guess the "pinch" is too much as both sets of wires were completly cut in two ( looked like they had been cut with a cutter). Soldier & heat shrink fixed the problem. Probably ought to go with a finer braided wire that will accomodate greater flexibility.

HTH, Dennis

There's one reason to mount the speakers in the headliner vs the doors, that and they're a bit closer to the ears which with the TDI can only help
