Rear Speakers

Postby tbruno » Thu May 12, 2016 7:21 pm



I have one speaker on the rear that is not working. I tried to hook up a different speaker and that one would not work. I checked the fuse its ok. Does anybody have any ideas. Thanks.

the wiring is well known for getting pinched and breaking on the top box hinges check that the wiring is ok

Almost always a broken wire at the trunk hinge.

When I fixed mine I rerouted the wires to have more flex.
The GL1800 is a crotch rocket on Steroids.
