Hi, had total issues with this too! Your back speakers arent going because they are amped by the factory amp in the boot. You have to provide power to the amp so that it will turn the rear speakers on. This was a white and black striped wire in my car (Audi A3 1997) The rear speakers are blue /green and brown/red (left rear) , and the LH rear is brown/red and (forgotten colour) but the wire on the bottom left under those two brown/red wires on the 20pin harness. If you wire it all up like this then your rears should be going :)

Testimonial: "So sorry for the very long delay in replying to your advice. It was the sub/amp in the boot as you correctly guessed. Another £200! Many thanks Pal"
sound like the head unit's out put mosfet is going bad, but i have also ran in to this problem when it was a speaker wires shorting out. so first check the connection on your rear speakers.

Actually the door speakers( less than 50W) do not need high wattage speakers as they are mainly powered from the head unit. Unless you are powering with a power amp a speaker of 300 watts is not required. But if the mountings are correct , the impedance of 4 ohms is correct, then it will fit OK and work. The only main issue will be the sensitivity issue of the speakers to work with a low output.
I have considered that a highly sensitive speaker( small voltage response) will sound great like an expensive power amplifier and high wattage speakers. Jensen had some good ranges in the 80's but now we have hard suspensions with poor response.
So my final suggestion is if powered from your head unit test it , there is no damage but if there is a response problem if you are a soft listener. Other wise there is nothing to worry on as the amp will handle except your listening pleasure.
So test to decide. Credit me if this info is helpful.
