Just bought an 05 LTwith less than 7k miles. Didn't notice the rear speakers not working when I bought it. Front seems to work fine. I have read some posts saying the chips go bad . Any chance the rear speaker wires get hot under the seat? Thanks y'all.

Re: 2005 OR rear speakers?

No but there is a barrel connector under the pillion seat that may not be fully engaged. Here is a shot of where it is from a intercom manual to tap into the rear speakers. They slide together and then rotate to fully engage.
