Am stations wouldn't come in very well anymore for Saturday college football games in the combine, so I ordered a new heavy duty Jensen am/fm/cd radio for the combine. The John Deere combine only has two speakers - one to the right rear and one to the left rear. The radio has 4 sets of speaker wires - front left and front right and rear left and rear right. Can I just use the rear speaker wires coming out of the radio and tape off the wires designated for the left and right front speakers???????? Is this the best thing for the radio, or is there some other way it should be wired??? I guess I could add some surface mount speakers up front. Thanks.

Contact either deere or the stero manufacture and you can get an adapter section that will plug in to both places without chopping the wire harness up. I did it on a Pete when I changed a radio in it several years back.

Had a box with a radio in for for work. That is what I did. Only used the rears. The radio that is in my semi now is only hooked to 2 speakers rears, but is selectable between 2 and 4. When set on 4 speakers the rears are wat is hooked up. Have been told that if you only us 2 to use the fade to shut off the fronts. If your antenna is not grounded well the AM will sometimes not work very well depending on the radio.

The radio that is coming out of the combine once worked well. It is still the JD factory rotary turning and is so full of chaff it will not tune in very well. Push buttons still work. I will check how the antenna is attached. Thanks.

Would be better to take the hose from a vacuum and not blow it out. Air pressure can rip delicate stuff apart. Vacuum is mostly volume not pressure. Been there.
