No solder needed. just use regular speaker wire. Recommend 14 or 16 gauge.

Radio pro 4 wiring

You should purchase a radio harness for your car, and it's wires will connect to wires of the same color from your JVC radio harness. Join the two harnesses together (solder, crimp caps, barrel connectors, etc.) and then one end plugs into your JVC, the other end plugs into the factory harness that the original radio was connected to. If for some reason, your factory harness plug has been cut, you'll have to hardwire the JVC harness. I've included a link to the wiring diagram for your car. The steering wheel controls are moot; they will not work unless you've got some aftermarket adapter that allows them to interface with the JVC radio.

How to hook up autotek speakers in the rear for caprice classic 92???

Easy fix. The factory has fitted a special socket to connect direct to factory speakers. Just cut this off and connect the wiring from your new speakers to the factory wiring. Use insulated connectors or solder and tape up the wiring. Make sure that the speaker wire with a "trace" or line of colour through it marries up with the same wire in the car. Cheers.

Please send me a diagram of how the wiring is to be set up on the back of the speakers

The red connector on the speaker should be connected to the Pos.(+) connection on the Receiver/Amp. The Black to the Neg. (-) connection. ( for the proper speaker) Front Left, Front Right,etc. All, or most paired wire has either a black stripe,different shape on one,or different colour wire(silver/copper) So if you hook up the Blk striped or silver to the Neg.(black terminal) on the speaker, do so at the other end (receiver ) If both speakers aren't hooked up the same, they will work, but there won't be as much Bass because the speakers will be out of phase.(when one speaker cone is moving out,the other will be moving inward.

I hav altec lansing vs2621, some times sub woofer not working. left and right speakers ok.

Check its speaker. In subwoofers, the lead wire that goes to the voice coil; goes from the speaker solder terminal to the vocie coil will get internal break and this type of fault sill occur. Intermittent working of speaker will be the result. Lead wire can be replaced. It can be bought from the electronic spare part shops. It is a type of copper braid wire. If you have the skill, fid out which wire is faulty and replace the same. you have to take out the speaker out of the box for repair. Broken wire can be detected by measuring its resistance with a multimeter. OK.

I am replacing a very old Toshiba cassette/radio and it has only one wire (+) going to the speakers. How does that work? I am trying to install another radio that doesn't work this way.

Hello sir, hi most likely the one wire is the live audio out, you are missing the ground line, the missing wire maybe connected to ground already, just like in car wiring where the other line is the body. if not check your speaker connections, they should have a "+" and a "-" sign terminal. to complete a speaker connection it should have two terminals. No speaker would work with only 1 terminal.

When I push my subwoofer cone its work and when i release it stops working. how can i fix this speaker? the make of this is 12'' 1210 Watts Infinity sub.

Looks like a broken copper braid that links the speaker terminal to the cone (from there on it goes to the coil which is underneath the cone).

Check the speaker connection terminals (near the magnet), you will notice that each terminal has a copper braid wire going from that terminal to the speaker cone.

Inspect both braid wires carefully at each end (near the speaker terminal and near the speaker cone), there will either be some damage to the braid at one or more of these four locations or the braid could be actually broken at any of these spots.

The braid can actually be resoldered at the point where it's damaged or broken - this task will require good soldering skills, mainly because this kind of braid wires are difficuld to solder (they are a bit difficult to clean because of their structure and solder won't attach itself well to oxydized copper), but also because some speaker cones are made of plastic which may melt if you overheat it with a soldering iron.

Besides that, when resoldering is being done, only a very short portion of the braid should be wetted with solder because the solder point will become rigid when the solder cools down, and the braid needs to remain very flexible when the speaker operates (if it's too rigid or too short, damage to the speaker cone could occur or the braid could get broken again when the speaker will be playing at a loud volume).

Hope you can have it repaired, it can be done at home, but there are also speaker repair shops where you can get it done (i'm not sure about the prices though).

Anyway, the alternative is to replace the speaker itself.

How do I install a volume control.

Ok, without actually seeing the back of it, I can't say where your connections go. But, I can tell you that there will be a positive and a negative for both L and R sides And 2 wires that go to your volume control on your amp.(1 for each side) you will be able to combine the 2 wires that go to your amp and it will still control both the right and left on your speaker.

Wiring color coding For RS tweeter

Different manufacturers use different wiring. Usually the striped is positive.
An easy test is to take a battery (from a cordless drill) or a 9V, and touch the neg + pos to the correct terminal of the battery.
If the speaker pops OUT, it is wired correctly, if the speaker pops IN, reverse the wires.

I have to connect 11 speakers in a restaurant to a 2 zone amplifier that is 500 watts per Chanel. How do I choose the power of the speakers and Which way do I wire them --- in parallel?

what size speakers and what watts, how many channels on the amp, you could do it in either way
There are two ways to wire electrical components. In parallel or in series. Both are important to understand, especially when properly hooking up speakers to amplifiers.
Parallel wiring is connecting components to a source so that they share the same voltage. To put that in a useful way, it would be connecting all of the speaker positive terminals to the positive terminal of the amplifier and connecting all of the speaker negative terminals to the negative terminal of the amplifier.
Series wiring is connecting components to a source so that they share the same current. To put that in a useful way, it would be connecting the amplifier's positive terminal to the positive terminal of the first speaker and then connecting the negative terminal of the first speaker to the positive terminal of the second speaker and so on. The final speaker in the chain will have it's negative terminal connected to the negative terminal of the amplifier. Hope it Works
