Which connections is the negative on these


most car stereo speakers have two connectors, one thinner and one wider. the wider one is typically the positive connection. to verify this, take a small 1.5v battery, and hold a wire to the negative and positive sides (it's easiest to use a battery case available at many electronic stores), connect the negative wire to the smaller connector, and tap the positive wire to the wider connector. if the speaker pops outward, then the thinner connector is the negative connector.

My 10 in subwoofer in my srt 4 neon doesnt seem to work need help


do u have sound but no light?

I ran my neon straight from the power from the amp so soon as accessories comes on they light up!

Run neon wires positive to the amp directly p.con & negative to negative on ur sub outlet!

Mine had the same prob & it was trial & error & that set up works for me & a few mates have done the same!

I am wondering how to install neon speaker rings I have 2 10" rings and i cant figure out how to wire them together, can anybody help me with that?


the speaker neon lights can be wired in directly from the negative and positive speaker wires by simply splicing them. in most casses this also causes the lights to pulsate with the music. in most 12 volt applications the positive and negative wires are generally transferable and do not cause damage when hooked up in reverse
hope it helps
