    I have a 2000 Ford Explorer Limited edition and the rear speaker in the cargo area recently went. Every place that I look to replace that speaker, says that can't find anything to replace that speaker. I was wondering if anyone has had to replace that speaker and if so where did you find it. Thanks.
