Usually black is ground and red is considered hot. But in general, polarity does not matter on a speaker so switching up the wires won't ruin anything.

Need a wiring diagram for a DEH-X6600BT. IT'S GOING IN A 1993 CHEVY ASTRO VAN. I KNOW KNOW THE WIRES OF THE VAN. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO CONNECT TO ON THE RADIO. THAY ARE DIFFERENT COLORS.


I hope someone comes along who can help; in the meantime, you might try the following. Naturally the power wires will be 12V and usually red(+) and black(-), if they're not, you can examine the other colors, to determine if their are separate ground wires for each speaker. If it uses a remote, and you want to hook that up; I can't help. sorry. But, if the speakers have a common ground, there will only be 1 wire for each speaker, the other connects to the ground of the car. If there are two wires for each speaker, they will be 4 different colors, with a 2nd wire which has the same color for all 4 speakers, so each speaker has a colored wire, and a common colored wire. This will leave the power connections, unless you have other controllers (see above).

One you know which are the power wires, you can connect them to a spare 12 V battery, and then comes the fun part. While adjusting the radio for front back, left and right, using the colored and a common wire for each speaker, this will be the same as the ground wire for the power even if not the same color, you can connect it to ground for the test. Then connect the colored wire and common wire to a speaker, by adjusting the controls you can find out if that colored wire is for front or back, left or right. Then you'll have your color code.

Although prolonged use of only one speaker or only two could cause damage to the radio, short use to troubleshoot at low volume shouldn't be an issue. Just don't use it that way.for a long time!

I hope this helps. Let me know.by rating up my answer! :-)

I cant remember how to hook up the speakers to the system


Speakers use a cable that consist of 2 insulated wires. The two wires are identified by one or more ways: 1) one wire may be golden colored and the other white or silver colored, 2) the insulation on one of the wires may have a raised ridge, or 3) the insulation on one wire may have some marking along the surface where the other will not

The terminals on speakers and terminals for the speakers on the amplifier will both have a (-) and (+) symbol for each cable (one for each wire). I like to assign the (+) terminal to the golden colored wire or the insulation with the rib or marking on it, and the (-) terminal to the white or silver colored wire or on the smooth or unmarked insulation. It does not matter which wire you assign to which terminal - as long as the (+) and (-) terminals of the speaker connects to the (+) and (-) terminals on the speakers of the amplifier (you should see to it that they do not get crossed so that the (+) of the speaker is connected to (-) terminal for the speakers on the amplifier).

Connect each speaker location to the corresponding speaker terminal on the amplifier (the front right speaker to connect to the front right speaker terminals on the amplifier - continue until all speakers are connected). Failure to connect correctly will make fading front to back and balance left and right work unexpectedly.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.
