Rear Speaker Harness Question

I have a 1967 camaro with a am radio. It has a dash speaker and two rear speakers. I'm currently trying to wire the speakers to my radio. The car was missing the wiring so I have no reference.

1st Question - In 1967 was two rear speakers available? I can only find a wiring harness for single rear. My car has the two rear speaker grilles.

2nd Question - If you had a rear speaker was a rear fader required? Where was it installed and how.

3rd Question - Where does the rear harness plug into under the dash. I assume the harness runs along side the rear tail light harness to the dash. My radio has the 3 prong connector.

Pictures below are from my car.

Any help would be appreciated





Where does the rear speaker connect.

I got this harness from AAW



I assume the blank connector is for the power wire from the harness. Is it a orange wire? I have a new harness that has a orange wire that has no purpose that I can find.

Re: Rear Speaker Harness Question

I have a 67 convert, with am radio (the speaker is mounted on the passengers side rear), and I believe the am's only had a single speaker (at least mine has only one). The fader switch goes under the right hand tuning knob, and the wire for the rear speaker goes across the dash (under the glove box), down the hinge post and under the wire protectors to the rear of the car (on the passengers side). I have a picture of that wire routing, along with the antenna cable (as my car is equipped with the rear antenna). If you would like to see the picture, just email me, as my email address is in my profile. I am not near my car presently, but will be reurning in April should you need a pic of the fader switch, etc.. Also, I think I remember the radio feed wire as being orange as well - hope this helps.

Pretty sure the radio power supply wiring was yellow and black, but mine is a 69....

Re: Rear Speaker Harness Question

Ok Thanks, looks like only one rear speaker on the passengerside was available in 67. These were most likely added before I got the car, the speaker grilles look to be from a 70's camaro as well.

Re: Rear Speaker Harness Question

More than likely, a previous owner installed an aftermarket stereo and the two rear speakers replaced the single speaker up front, very common.

I would say you have an AM radio with dash speaker. Sixty-seven did have a rear speaker on pass side and with fader, control was part of the tuning knob, with speaker harness running under pass sill plate. Aftermarket speaker wiring was thin gauge, 20 GA maybe, black with a black/white.

Thanks, I've had this car this the late 70's. I just assumed the dual speakers were factory. I should of figured it out from the incorrect speaker grilles. Finally a easy solution, just replace the package tray problem solved.

I have a AAW under dash harness. I marked all the wires as I removed the old harness. Everything matches nicely. I have two single wires that I cannot identify.

1) Orange: Is this power for the Radio?



2) Yellow: Is this power for the ashtray light?
