I ran into this problem myself, the instructions make it sound easy.
Remove the speaker grills. just pry from the top with a credit card. take out the allen screws on each side. pull up on the lower part of the dash to the rear of the key. After this pops up, there is a plug attached behind the ignition lock cylinder. Use a screwdriver to pry the latch out and unplug. 
Now the hard part. The instructions say to just take out the screws, the dash gets in the way. I was not willing to disassemble the entire fairing. I used a soldering iron to melt the plastic enough to get a screwdriver in, but not so much that it was visible after the dash was back in place.
The screws expand when you tighten them, like the plug on a boat. you may have to hold the outside while you turn the screw. DON'T LET THEM FALL DOWN THE FAIRING!!! This can take hours to remedy. frankly you are better to get a new anchor than to try and take apart the fairing.

1992 GOLDWING RADIO SPEAKERS NOT WORKING


All you can do is trace the wiring back from the radio to the speakers, there is no quick fix here. To test the speakers touch a battery to the two contacts, the speaker will pop if it is any good.

Need speakers for a 2001 Saturn L300


Your best bet for replacing with OE components, without going to a dealer and paying their prices, is to visit your local salvage yard and pull them out (if you can do that). My local yard only charges $4 per speeaker, regardless of size or specification.

Aftermarket replacements will require some wiring to the extent that you'll need to change the plug-end on your existing speaker wiring to female blade terminals that will plug onto the aftermarket speakers. The speakers will work well with your OE head unit, though. There is no need to replace anything other than the speakers and the wire connectors when upgrading your audio components for replacement purposes only.

I don't have the information for speaker size in front of me, but I can find it if you need it.

Hookin up fader and rear speakers on 1990 1500 goldwing


If there is an AUX output ... try that ...

If you are jury rigging, take one wire from the speaker, put it on the center tap of your pot (veriable resistor). On the right, put a wire from there to the front speaker. On the other tap (left) run a wire to the rear. You will need a common from the front speaker (the one you left there) to the rear.

Hopefully you are not concerned about ohms or phases.

Replacement of front radio speakers


Hi,
To get at the front speakers, you will need to 1st remove the following items: fairing pockets, ignition switch cover, top inner covers, seat, top compartment, rear view mirror, and headlight adjusting knob.
Then you will be able to remove the dash panel. The 4 screws that hold each speaker can then be accessed once the panel is off...
I know it is a long list to go thorough to get to the speakers, but that's how Honda designed it.
hope this helped
