It's probably the speaker, not the wiring. I've got one speaker that goes in and out, mostly out. Turns out the diaphragm is getting stuck to the magnet. After seeing the wiring checking your speaker connection would be a much easier place to start.

We hooked up an external speaker to the contact points and got sound, plugged the original back in, no sound. A simple un-intentional patting to the speaker and it started working again.

Will probably be replacing soon.

As a side note, crutchfield sent me some nice installation instructions when I purchased a new wire harness to put in a new radio. Pretty detailed and with photos. Getting in there takes a bit of work, but trying to trace wires would be painful.

In my 2005 Subaru Baja the car stereo speakers go on/off on the right side of the vehicle. Sometimes just opening and closing the door makes them work. I read somewhere that someone thought is was a air...

Remove the door panel and check the speaker connections on the speaker itself. Also, check the harness that runs through the inner door to the body (when door is open), for a bad connection.
