In need of assistance! Please

So, a couple weeks ago I got my 94 yj. Everything in quite perfect running order except for the stereo... Aftermarket deck that had just died.
I've replaced the deck itself, but once powered on, no sound... Turns out, the speaker wires were cut. I've got some new speaker wire, and I have it all in place but I can't seem to get it properly attached to either speaker... Any tips?

Thanks!

The wires were pulled off at the solder tabs. You need to solder one wire to each of the two tabs. The ones on the left and the right with the melted metal (solder) on them.

Those are old GM replacement speakers they have a plastic plug with 2 connectors inside that make contact with the speaker terminals. Scrounge around your local pick and pull and get the speaker plugs and some of the wire from GM vehicles and splice them in. My experience is that solder doesn't stick well to those contacts or the heat from the soldering guns ruins the speaker. The ones on the left and right attach the terminal to the voice coil don't mess with them soldering on them will also ruin the speaker.

This will work, but I'm surprised that you've had problems with soldering the wires on. I've never had a problem with wires that I've soldered. The only thing to watch out for is you need to make sure you don't drop solder on the speaker cone.

Of course YMMV.

So, I ended up going to picknpull and picking up the whole speaker assembly and everything matches up and works... Dunno why the idea took me so long to come up with.

Thanks again for the help guys!

Or... I don't read the responses correctly when I'm half asleep... Thanks Mowrangler for the suggestion of pick and pull. Ended up taking the connectors out of an 89 Cherokee, and it works fine.
