To do this you will need a 2 channel amp. Run your 2 front speakers and 2 rear speakers as normal. For the other 2 speakers you will need to connect an amplifier- crutchfield.com and other sites have a good walkthrough on it, or you can pay someone to do it. You will use the RCA out on the back of the aftermarket stereo to send signal to the 2 channel amp, and connect the other 2 speakers to the amplifier.

After market stereo in 1997 eddie bower ford expodition provides no sound


You should be using line out from your aftermarket stereo if using the vehicle's existing amp. Then again, you may choose to bypass it, depending on the power being put out by your new stereo.
In both the Expedition and Excursion, the sound systems are different than smaller Fords. The Eddie Bauer typically had the Premium sound system, and the wiring can get tricky with those. You want to make sure it's done right so you don't short out and damage the amp circuit in your new stereo.
If all you're using is the existing speakers, then go ahead and bypass.

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.
