Only Rear Drivers Side Speaker works. Help?

I'm new to this lol just bought my first jeep. Soon afterwards i realized that the front right and rear right(soundbar) speaker do not work at all. The front left speaker in the dash works occasionally and is really quiet. The only actually one that works is the rear drivers side sound bar speaker.

I've read other stuff about it possibly being a wiring break. Or maybe they are blown. But the jeep also has various plugs exposed that look like they came from a previous speaker system in the car. I thought that maybe with these unplugged it could be causing the speakers not to work.

There is an outlit under the steering wheel on the left and there is wiring from the radio to the back on the jeep that are also exposed.

Anyone know what the problem could be or what the wires go to?
Included some pictures

If nothing else works, you can always run fresh speaker wires from near the head unit to the speakers.

This is your OBD-II diagnostic port where you plug in a Check Engine Light trouble code reader.

Ahh thanks for the info. Guess that shows I don't know much about these sort of things.. at least that's one thing out of the problem.

ya Going to try rewiring the units. Think ill test them first to see if they have any breaks.

That rear outlet is probably from the oem plastic subwoofer option they had at one point. I'd start by checking the head unit wiring in the dash. then replacing the speakers; 5.25" in the dash and 6.5" in the soundbar or 5.25" if you're adding a sub. 35 watts rms unless you're adding an amp the. Match rms speaker to amps.

One of the plugs in the rear plugged into the hardtop for defrost/wipers but I am still unsure as to what the other one does. Theres also a red male end one further down.

I'm probably going to replace the speakers and get everything figured out.
