first think i would do is pull the door pannels off and see if they are plugged in, then pull the head unit out and see if any wires have been cut.

i could see one speaker totaly going out but two? and both rears?

im going to guess whoever owned the car before you had all 4 door speakers hooked up too a amp, and when he/she uninstalled the amp/headunit they didnt bother rehooking up the rears.

Since you've opened them up, now you can test temporarily connecting a spare speaker (or even headphones, with the volume kept low) to each of the rear speaker connectors to see whether you're getting signal from the HU through the wires.

I'd say it's more likely the wires were cut behind the HU, but I wouldn't rule out the speakers being blown.
