Wiring on back of head unit

When changing speakers in a car (my case rear speakers of 2000 clio to JBL 6x9's) i have found out i need to change cables from back of head unit to some speaker cable and just connect to the speakers, this is ok but how do i change the green + green/black wires and the purple + purple and black wires? do i just cut them, strip them and solder the speaker wire to the stripped part? i dont really wanna ruin my head unit trying things out.i know what wires are to go where, its just how to connect the speaker wires...
thanks in advance

You don't need to change the cables from the head unit on.  Just strip of the end of the wires where the old speakers are and crimp on the proper connectors to connect them.  Alternatively you can just solder the wires directly to the speakers.  I always **** splice at least 6" of wires onto the end so you have more wire to work.  The only reason you would change the wires would be because you are putting more than 200 watts per channel.  You didn't speak of an amp so no worries.

Why did my rear speakers in my 2000 Toyota Avalon stop working


If you have already checked all radio/audio fuses and they are fine, there could be a number of variables to consider. If you have the factory JBL audio system, by way of rear speakers, are you referring to the subwoofer in the middle in back of the rear seats. or are you saying the rear speakers on the door panels. If the subwoofer isn't working, you could have fried the subwoofer amp (located in the trunk next to the subwoofer, or check to make sure both of those connections(+ & - )wires are connected to the subwoofer. If both of the rear door panel speakers aren't working, then there is a disconnect/power problem from the power source to the speakers. You can get a low voltage tester to see if those rear speakers are drawing any juice. Just take one of the speakers ans test the wires. With the JBL system, all of the front, rear, and subwoofer run through the amp I believe, due to the ohm output.There is a diagram I've attached via link 2000 Toyota Avalon pin my factory stereo unit No other harnesses On a side note, if you ever hear a lot of muffle in any speakers, usually its the foam around the speakers that has deteriorated. They have foam replacement kits but for very little money, you can detach the speakers and have a company refurbish the foam. the company, SimplySpeakers does a great job Toyota JBL Speaker Foam Edge Repair Replacement Kit 86160 AC180 Avalon...

Where is the stereo amps in a 2004 lincoln ls I know there are 2 one is on the rear package tray in the trunk this is a subwoofers amp for the 2 6x9 inch subs but were is the one for the front and rear...


In fords and lincolns they are usually located behind the head unit location. It looks like a small heat sink with wires coming out of it...they are pretty far back so you will have to pull the head unit and dash kit if you changed the factory setup.

How do i wire 6x9 from the back shelf to the head unit using new wire where do i wire it on the head unit?


if you are going to place the speackers into the rear shelf than you can run your wires along the underside of the shelf,then towards the back of the rear seat, then run it down the length of the seat, when you reach the bottom you will need to try to pry the backrest portion seat foward just enought to get the wire thru to the front, then you will need to get either a phillip or slotted screwdriver, open the back door and at the bottom unscrew the trim from the bottom of the door way,run wire thru do the same with the front door, then run wire behind the trim around or near where the emergency release handle is at, run wire behind instrument panel towared your deck. when you go to wiring up the deck and speakers check on the deck to see if it has a wiring diagram on it if not: most decks come as follows ( white wires front right ,blue or purple rearl left, brown front left, grey rear right red is + black is - yellow is constant +( always on so your deck is able to stay programedwith your presets and audio settings and clock)one single blue or purple wire is the remote for your ampif the colors dont match the ones on your deck then hook up your deck to the power only when the deck comes on go ahead and set your speackers to only the rear right speacker and take your wires from your speacker and touch them to the wires on the back of the deck, once you hear the audio coming thru go ahead and mark this as right rear or rr then using the same speaker change the settings to rear left speacker and do the same as with the other one mark it rl and do same for front speackers

Wiring new speakers


hello melgiblett, as adding additional speakers to you current factory speakers will cause and abundance of power drain, you head unit is only designed to handle 4 speakers.. the only option would be to either splice your front or rear speakers to the new 6x9's, however you will notice a significant drop in audio volume and quality as your head unit would not be powerful enough to run all 6. with the assistance of an amplifier, you may be able to acheive all 6 speakers

Jbl 600.1 wired properly only getting about 50 watts output. i tried single and dual voice coil subs. wtf?


your subs might be too powerful for your amp, if thats not the problem try changing your RCA cables, or try turning up the preamp output on your head unit
