Installing aftermarket speakers on a 2000 trans am

My wife cut the factory speaker connectors off from the wires and has lost them, the speakers previously had 2 positive & 2 negative wires coming out of each speaker. How can I install these speakers without the clips?

    right on! I think I will make her put an outfit on while i have a few watching her try to do it, LOL! I know I will be the doing the work.

    but let me get this straight, I should go buy the after market connector clips I would have used to connect the after market speakers and then find another that will clip to that. Remember the clips she has lost are the clips originally equipped with the car

At the parts store or Radio Shack or the Marts or even a good dollar store they sell slip on connectors that have different color ends, see what size you need and let her crimp them on and finish the job..Just watch her have while having a cold one..

I'm trying to install an aftermarket cd player in my 97 explorer when I wiring in the new deck to the speakers they don't no sound comes through the stock speakers is there an app I need to find?


you can buy an adapter the plugs into the factory wiring and the new radio so you don`t cut and butcher the wiring of the car. it covers the wiring for the speakers as well. going by your photo this looks like a bad wiring and splice job.

I need to know the positive and negative speaker wires from the door speakers on my 1999 ford expedition xlt. There isnt a marking on the factory ones and i want to put after market ones but dont know


white and orange are your positive wires. need-know-positive-negative-speaker-l0u5xrrbjmm23votbgnhzwek-1-0.jpg

You can buy some pigtails like this at a local car audio shop. No wire cutting involved, they snap right onto your factory connectors and aftermarket speaker terminals. Worth every penny.

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

I have a 96 escort with no radio ;the wires are there,but i want to install a new radio.i don't know what wires hook up to the new radio


Hi, if the connector is still there, it is easiest to purchase a ford wiring adapter. The adapter will match the factory wires to an aftermarket stereo. If the connector is gone, see your factory wire colors below. Please let me know if you need additional help or have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I am looking for speakers to replace the ones that r in it.They r they original speakers that came with the car. Delco speakers-they have 1 adapter female plug on each side of the back speakers. Can't find...


any aftermarket speaker you buy will not have that style plug. you need to cut off the original connector on the wiring, and use the connector for the aftermarket speakers - there are a couple different style connectors, whoever you buy the speakers from can provide the proper connectors that you will crimp onto the wiring. good luck!

How do I remove and replace the rear speaker in my 2002 Lexus ES 300?


Hello, I have a 2000 ES300 and while the body style is different believe the newer model still has the rear deck mounted sub-woofer that you are referring to. The process of removing this speaker would start off the same as if you were going to replace the third brake light also located in this housing. Using a flathead screwdriver work your way around prying/popping up all four corners of the speaker grill covering the speaker that have the retainer clips. Once you disengage the clips work/maneuver the grill up and towards you gently and it should slide out. The bulb for the third brae light will be attached to this speaker grill, disconnect the snap wire from the bulb and you should have a clear visual of the speaker and the four bolthead screws securing it. Remove these screws and your almost home free. The next part might be slightly more difficult. If the speaker s simply connected by a clipped on wiring harness, just detach.On my 2000 ES300 i have the pioneer system(Not Nakimichi) and the 2 wires (one black, and one red) are soldered directly to the speaker. You can take a soldering iron(maybe a battery or gas powered one unless you have an inverter) and remelt the solder to remove the wires or you can elect to simply cut the wires. If you choose to cut them make sure you cut them as close as possible to the soldered joints so you have plenty of wire left to install the replacement speaker.Then install replacement either soldering or using crimp clamps and reassemble. ( Note if you simply want to add a aftermarket amplified sub-woofer you don't need to remove the sub-woofer out of the housing. You can tap into the wire leads and run it directly to the amplifier. Just cut one of the wires leading to the stock sub-woofer so it doesn't also come on and potentially blow while the radio is on. This will also prevent any bass humming when the radio is shut off but the aftermarket amplifier is still on because once one of the wires to the stock sub-woofer is disconnected or cut it breaks the circuit. Hope this helps.

You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).

You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.

2000 lexus es300


This is normal. I also have a 2000 ES300. This became a problem when i tried to run an aftermarket sub off of the wire leads from the stock sub-woofer. When I would switch the radio off there would be a loud, deep, constant bass tone. As far as I know you cannot stop the voltage from continuously supplying the sub-woofer this is the way the factory amplifier is programmed, however, if you cut one of the wires(youhave to cut because wires are soldered to sub-woofer) the humming noise will not occur when radio is shut off. Cut the wire in middle and add crimp connectors so you can reconnect later if needed. You only need to cut one and it doesn't matter whether it's the black or red wire.
