Speakers not working-possible causes

I was working on my WJ 2002 Limited and realized that my passenger door, rear passenger door, and rear driver door speakers do not work/no sound coming out. Just curious if this sounds like a speaker problem or wiring problem, and how to tell if it's the speaker. Are speakers easy to fix in a door? Any idea how much it would cost to get this problem fixed? I know it's vague but figured id ask around and get some input.

12 year old speakers, if they've never been replaced it may be about that time. I'd start with grabbing a multimeter and checking the resistance of the speakers at the door or at the radio (either unplugged from the harness at the door or the harness unplugged from the radio if checking there). I wanna say they should be 4 ohm factory speakers, so anything above or below that would mean it's time to replace the speakers.

Lots of cars use 8ohm factory speakers. Easiest way to see if they're hooked up is with a AA battery.
