67 SS Car - Radio Harness Photo and Question - Help Please

The attached photo shows part of the radio speaker harness from my 67 SS car. When looking at the photo, the harness plugs on the left side (green, black and yellow) plug into the back of the AM Radio, also connect to the front speaker and ultimately into the main harness. The wires on the right (white, green and black) go to the radio "fader/toner mechanism. My question is related to the dark blue wire in the middle of the photo which is protruding from the connector that leads to the wires that plug into the main harness, the front speaker and the back of the radio. This wire was cut when I purchased the car with bare wire exposed. I am trying to find out where this single dark blue wire connects and my wiring schematics don't even show it. Is it possible a single wire lead that goes to a rear speaker??? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Mark

Yes, the dark blue wire runs to the rear speaker.

You are correct. Single blue wire is for a rear speaker.

Good luck

Guys, THanks for clearing up the confusion. If the dark blue wire is the "hot" to the rear speaker, where do I ground the rear speaker? Do I just run a small lead from the speaker to ground? Thanks again, Mark
