Aftermarket radio question

I have an aftermarket single din in the jeep at the moment and the rear speakers donít work.

Finally had time to take out the radio and came across this:

Several wires from the wire set are tied off and donít connect to anything on the radio...possible reason the back donít work?

On a different note, have any of you converted your single dine radio to a double?

Argh....after I opened up the dash and took a look at the radio I tried to drive it yesterday and noticed absolutely NO sound going through the radio! I didn't take anything apart and put everything back in where it should have been.

I think the only box in there is the AMP Interface box...I'm going to try and open her back up this afternoon and see what the issue is.

Worked. Took the radio out and instantly the sound came back on. Left it on as well while I was putting the stereo back in so I could tell if the wires were getting messed up too.
