I have a jvc kdavx1 trying to hook up to a 2000 buick reagal need to know how the wires hook up

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2000 Buick Regal Car Stereo Install Diagram jvc kdavx1
Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Orange yellow
Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Yellow red
Radio Ground Wire: Black/White black
Radio Illumination Wire: Gray/Black orange/white
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Tan white
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Gray white/black
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green gray
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Dark Green gray/black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Brown green
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Yellow green/black
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Dark Blue purple
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Light Blue purple/black
parking brake: blue light green

For this last wire, access the back of the parking brake to find a switch with a blue wire. Peel some insulation from the wire and wrap the stripped end of a 3 foot piece of 16 or 18 gauge wire around the stripped section. Solder and wrap the connection with electrical tape, route the wire to the jvc, then strip and solder the other end to the pigtail of the head unit.

If you are also installing a camera seeing behind you when backing, you will need to run a wire to the back-up light on the driver side reverse light (light green) wire along with your video cable.

I have 2 15inch db audio dual voice coil speakers in a ported box im running them 2 ohm stable which way should the speakers in the box be hooked up and how the speaker wire should lead to the amp i have a...

The easiest way to explain it would be for you to go to the following link.
On one side of both woofers positive (+) and negative (-) are connected together. Then you will need to hook the remaining + terminals together and go to the + of the amp. Then you do the same with the - terminals. Hope this helps, please let me know if you have any questions on it.

How do i hook up my kicker comp dual voice coils

If you are wanting to run them bridges, I'm going to assume each voice coil is 4 ohms, then what you want to do is as follow

+1 -2

+3 -4

So on the diagram here, I know its silly, but you'll hook a wire from lead 3 to 1, that will bridge the positive side dow. Then you will hook a wire from lead 4 to lead 2. From lead 1 and 2, run your speaker wire to the terminals on the box. Now if you have a mono block amp, its not going to affect. If you have a 2 channel amp that is bridgeable, be careful. Some amps are not 1 ohm stable. Try and see. Good Luck.

I need a wiring diagram to hook up a set of dual illuminite speakers in my car

Check out

They have all kinds of wiring diagrams. Be careful.... Car systems are designed to handle certain number of speakers and resistance (ohms). Hooking up more speakers without the proper amplifiers can damage your cars radio.

Buying an amplifier

First lets start with how to run your speakers, If you are running all three speakers then you need to wire them in a series so all three of them are a 4ohm load. you can achieve this by taking the first speaker and running the (+) to the amp, then take the (-) and run it to the (+) on the next speaker, then take the (-) and run it to the (+) on the third speaker, then take the remaining (-) and run it to the amp. Now as far as an amp goes you can pretty much pick any amp you want now and not have to worry about overheating since you are running a 4 ohm set-up.

I have an 89 supra and im tring to hook up a jvc radio. An i can not figure out the speaker wires for the car. I know the ones on the radio.

I use a AA battery. Take a short piece of speaker wire, cut two pieces about 3 inches long, strip it on both ends. Use black electrical tape and tape one wire on each end of the battery. On the end not taped to the battery twist the wires so they don't fray out. Now when you pull out your factory deck you can use the battery across the two wires for each speaker lead, it will make a crackle sound letting you know which speaker you are on.

Need to hook up to a 4000 watt amp

Why would you hook up 4000 watt amp to a speaker that has only 1000 watts. Try a 800 watt amp instead unless you just dont want the spealers.

Jensen vm9411 has no sound from radio hookups put rca wires have sound

If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.
