1972 Cadillac AM/FM Stereo Radio (no 8-track!). I have zero sound from my speakers, but I can faintly hear the radio sounds coming from the head unit itself. The radio powers up. After turning it on and getting nothing but silence several times, one time the speakers did make a loud sound when I turned it on, then silent again. The signal-seeking function is working, it can find stations that come in, so I believe the antenna is hooked up and working. Plus, if the antenna was the only problem I would still expect to hear static from the speakers. I believe this head unit has an internal amp. My service manual makes no mention of an external amp (unlike a '69 Caddy I have). I have tried hooking up a new 6X9 in the rear. Another thing I am puzzled by is the rear 6X9s are apparently only supposed to have one wire running to each, no ground wire? How can this be possible? Thanks, Brian.

James, Cadillac stereo systems have an amplifier and usually when there is no sound from the speakers its because either the fuse to the amp is blown OR the amp itself is bad. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/
Are you sure you are listening to a stereo program (e.g. FM radio or CD/Tape)? Have you tried adjusting the fade and balance controls? If sound is not coming out of all speakers, you will probably have to replace the radio.
Turn on the radio and increase the volume if you can hear a hiss through the speakers, chance is the aerial/antenna connection is not hooked up correctly. Another way to check is try tuning to an AM station if you get a signal on AM but not FM then it is The antenna. You may have to remove the radio to get at the connection.
First Visually check all your fuses. Does rig have amp for stereo by any chance? It sounds like amp is bad and/or fuse is blown. Amp is wired between radio and speakers, and a shorted amp would make crackling in speakers when radio is OFF
