Red is positive, black is negative. Your receiver, or amp, will have similar color coded terminals. Just make sure you run a wire from the red terminal on your receiver to the red terminal on your speaker. Same thing for the black.

Testimonial: "The issue I am having is that there are approximately 8 different wires coming from the KEF speakers. From Yellow to Violet. I think I have a good understanding on the AMP side, I just don't have the labels for all the colors. I tried writting KEF, but no response yet. I am kind if frustrated because I searched the net high and low and found nothing. I did find the manual for the speaker but nothing indicating what each wire was for in relation to the 8 colors available."

How to hookup a bose 321 to a toshiba 58l7300 tv

The Bose system does not appear to have HDMI output. The best-quality method would be to use Component (RGB) cables with analog audio. One RCA pair will be for audio and these are often RED & WHITE connectors, but don't have to be. Any RCA pair will work. Connect these to the Bose RED/WHITE jacks found in the "TV" labeling. Connect the other ends to the Toshiba's RED/WHITE jacks on the bottom row, first two jacks.

Now you need a Component cable. This has three RCA connectors at each end and are traditionally RED, GREEN, and BLUE. Again, colors do not matter as long as you connect the ends so they match. Under the "Component" labeling on the Bose, you will find the three colored jacks. Connect these to the Toshiba's same-colored jacks which are next to the RED/WHITE ones you used previously. These three connectors carry the video signals. They will transfer Hi-Def 1080i signals, not 1080p, but you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Switch the input on your TV to "Component".

Nope. We're just going to have to 'Wing it'

Long read, better put the coffee pot on.
(Oh and sum snacks! I like Little Debbies, Lol! All that good(?) whipped fat, and sugar)

The motherboard is shown as installed in the computer case.
I will use this orientation to explain the various cable, (Wires) hookups

We will be referring to the motherboard photo, and if you will scroll down, the motherboard layout as shown in an illustration.

Let's go to the illustration, and refer back to the photo.
Perhaps make it easy on yourself. Open the above link in two windows. One window with the photo, one window with the illustration.

1) The white 3-pin connector at the top of the motherboard, and to the left of the Ram Memory slots, is for the Processor Fan. It is labeled CPU_FAN1.

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

2) The Berg connector to the right of the Ram Memory slots, (Top right corner) is labeled JLPC1, and is ONLY used by the manufacturer for board level debugging purposes.
(Junction Low Pin Count 1)

3) The processor socket is labeled Socket AM2.
To the bottom Left corner is a 4-socket hole connector, and whitish in color, JPW1.
A 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in here.
General example of power cable, and respective connector,

Note the Lock on the side of the power cable's connector, and matching Tab on the motherboard connector. The Lock operates like a see-saw on a playground. Squeeze the top in to release.

4) Below JPW1 is SYS_FAN1.
This is where a computer case fan hooks up.

5) Look below the Ram Memory slots. There you will see 5 connectors labeled SATA1 through SATA5.
SATA1 is for the Harddrive. SATA2 through SATA5 are for optical drives, and additional SATA harddrives.

Bottom of motherboard come across from the Left side;

6) The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
JAUD1 is for the audio ports in the Front Panel

7) JAUX1 goes to the PRIMARY optical drive, if there are two optical drives. (CD/DVD drive)

8) J1394_1 is for the Firewire ports on the Front Panel. They will be labeled 1394, or similar. (1394a)

9) JSPD1: To my knowledge not connected.

From Frankenputer;

"Newer ATI cards that have HDMI have a built in sound processor. nVidia cards do not and will have a connection on them to input the SP/DIF connector(either by a cable connecting inside via the card to an outside SP/DIF connector, or a cable connecting an SP/DIF header on a mobo to the video card. This is so that both the HD video and Sound are transmitted via the HDMI."

10) JUSB1 has provisions (Contact pins) for hooking up TWO USB ports on the Front Panel.
So does JUSB2

JUSB4 through JUSB6 are for a USB port. One USB port for each one of them.

11) JFP1 is Junction Front Panel 1.
Another term used is the Front Panel header.

This is where the Power On switch, Power On LED light, HarDDrive activity LED light, and Reset switch, (IF used), hook up to from the Front Panel.

Note the two rows.
4 pins across the Top row
5 pins across the Bottom row.

The pins are numbered.
The pins across the Top row are numbered EVEN
The pins across the Bottom row are numbered ODD.

Starting on the LEFT side coming across to the Right; Top row;,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting on the Left side coming across to the Right; Bottom row,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.
If not No Connection.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected.
This is reserved for the factory to use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + )
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

F) There is No Pin 10. This is called the 'Key'
Helps you orient the Front Panel cable's connector, to the Front Panel header.

USB cables for HP's are usually Black. Called cables because they have individual wires in them.

Each cable going to a set of two USB ports, in the Front Panel, for the USB1 and USB2 headers on the motherboard.

A card reader will use a USB header on the motherboard, or two of them.
The power cable to it is the same as used on a Floppy Drive,

This power cable goes to a SATA harddrive, or a SATA optical drive,

This is an example of a SATA data cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard.
NOTE* Does NOT matter about color. Color of the connectors, or the cable.
Also look at the L-shaped opening, and the L-shape on the motherboard connector.

Plus a 90 degree elbow on the SATA data cable, is usually connected to a Harddrive, or Optical Drive.
A straight connector usually goes to the motherboard.

Often there is a 'bump', you press on top of the SATA data cable connector, to release it. The bump is a Lock.

Again color does not matter. The only time it may come close, is individual coloring of the SATA connectors on the motherboard, to distinguish their numbering.

(SATA1 Dark Blue. SATA2 White. SATA3 Light Blue.
SATA4 Yellow. SATA5 Red. SATA6 Black)

If the optical drive/s are IDE (PATA), they will use a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have a PLE01 mother board and i need to plug in the hdd,ldd and ect plugs and i don't know how they go as i do not have the manual and cannot read the small print can u help

Today's motherboard are easy to setup because mostly are now color coded like those connection ports.All you have to do is place the cables according to their color coded ports. Connectors are easy to identified because they are also labeled with name. Like the picture below.

Connections ports on the motherboard are also labeled similar to the connector cables above or have a similar abbreviated names like PSW for Power SW.

I hope this could help you..
Please don't forget to rate. Thanks..

Speaker wire problem

Yes you can splice the ends onto the existing wires, but first make sure the ends are labeled + or - and make sure you hook the other ends to the speakers the correct way. Before you cut the connectors off of the speaker wires mark one of each of the pairs of the wires with tape, on each side of where you cut it so you can match the wires back up. Are the pre-wired, wires labeled + and -? or red and black? Or one of each pair is a different color wire ie silver and copper? If they aren't labeled its going to be hard to get the correct polarity (+ and -) for each speaker. I hope this helps post back if you have any problems.

I need to know the timing specs for a 1994 Chevy 4.3 V6 Engine.

Following the label under the hood. Put in base timing mode by unplugging a wire connector, it usually tells you where it is. This will turn on the check engine light to tell you you're in base timing mode and takes the ECM out of the loop. Should be a single wire tan in color with a black stripe and black connector. If you not sure where the connector is, it's in the passenger compartment behind the carpet, and blower heater. Just follow along the wire harness from the ECM. Remeber a single wire tan in color with a black stripe and black connector. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted if you have any other questions. Be glad to answer any questions and if the label is missing let me know.

What color is what for the radio wires i have like a atapter

your car should have an ISO connector, all newer radios also have ISO connectors, one for the 8 speaker wires and one for the power block, they cannot be connected wrong.
If on the other hand some muppet has chopped off the connectors instead of using a proper converter connector then you should reinstall new ISO connectors.
You will need:
A 12v test light or a multimeter set to 120vdc
some masking tape to make labels and a ped to mark the labels.
A quick test to establish the correct wires is.
using your 12volt test lamp or multi meter, find a wire that is live when ignition is off, this is your +30 live, now switch on ignition and find one that is live, this is your+15 live, now switch on the lights, is there another live? this is your lights or dimmer wire. with the lights and ignition on connect the live lide of your tester to the +30 wire and find one that is earth, (you should be running outof wires by now anyway, this si your earth or ground wire.
The speaker wires will probably be seperate and if you have a bunch of 8 wires, that's them.
you will find there is a prime color and another with the same color but with a trace, so make into pairs, ie, red and red/white, green and green/white etc.
using a 1,5v AA battery touch each pair very briefly in turn, the corrisponding speaker will 'pop', mark up front left etc.
There ya go, all sorted.

Power sw -data +data

Did you get a manual with the board? Check page 1-20

You should find a pic just like this.
Wire colors. Black wire is ground - . Of all the case wire connectors the other common ground wire is white. Colors like red & blue are plus +.

It is much simpler to connect the case to motherboard LED's when the board is outside of the case.
