    A different "head unit" with a built in amp (IC chip) will run all 4 speakers .
    A 6 1//2 inch sub was what I added (Parts Express has them ) , plus a 100 watt mono amp (very similar to your description of system from previous owner. )

    I'd replace head and add a sub b (wires may already be in place for sub amp ).

    Good Luck !

    It appears the wires going to the speakers are still viable as are the speakers themselves .

    So now , have you decided on a replacement for the Kenwood ?
    Get a head unit to replace the one that is damaged and you should be good to go.

    as I think I wrote, the speakers all seem to be good. and the "feeds" from the Kenwood head all seem to be live (the 4 pairs of wires for the 4 speakers)

    but only the Rear Left wiring seems to work. (so if I hook up RF, LF, RR leads from the Kenwood to the wires labelled RL they all produce sound)

    So does the amp really have an impact?
