May at least tell you where the problem is. Tweeters, mid-bass and shelf speakers have dedicated amp cross-over outputs from the amp. The amp therefore is multi-channel. I can't see why front door and the rear shelf combo fail as separate amps unless the entire channel source (preamp signal) is dying? Are there any left-side speakers that remain working?
Yea, both left doors have a speaker working.

I don't know what 'open common connection points' means, though I can certainly jump from a working speaker into a non-working one...but I don't think it's the speaker and I know it's not the entire channel.

Hmmm? So a wire hitting ground could coz the amp to shut off that one speaker?

Once again, why I'm glad I'm deaf in one ear and don't listen to the radio!
