If you don't have a schematic on the old radio the only way to be sure is check it with a multimeter , first identify your permanent power 12 volt DC then find your switched 12 volt this will turn on ansd off with your ign key , the earth cable is normally slightly thicker than the rest of the other wires in the loom and will normally be black or green yellow , you wil need to set your meter to ohms setting to identify the speakers you should get 3.8 to 4 ohms reading back from the speakers when you find them.

rear speaker wiring usually can be found at the front and traced to the rear of the vehicle but most common place would be to check at the back already at sidewalls or the backboard.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the Pioneer Unit, or is this the one you want the diagram for ? Get back to me with a bit more details, e.g. have you got a diagram for the Eurovox? Have you pulled out the Eurovox yet? (I hope not ).

Need color codes for a kenwood kdc- 122p head unit in dash.

Hi there,
Generally you can find these manuals freely available at the manufacturers website, however it usually take ages worth of searching and i thought id save you the hassle,
Head to this link for your units entire manual.. Page 17 i think it is exactly.

There a good little unit but sold a few when i was working in the industry.

Otherwise generally you can pick up pre wired pugs that adapt the cars harness via one plug to the back of the stereo avoiding any splicing. If youre interested in them head to this website,

Hope this helps, 
Have a happy easter
