Typically the wire with a stripe signifies negative polarity, so if you are wiring your speakers in phase (+ to+ and - to -) then yes you are good to go. Something you may want to consider are connecting crimps. They are just little pieces of plastic that you connect your add on speaker to then they crimp onto the wire you are connecting to using sharp metal clamps, this limits the ammount of factory stock wire you would normaly be exposing and also stops the need to sever or cut a wires factory connection, in turn preventing resistence in the wiring. The less resistence a wire has the easier and more clear it can accept signal. With radio's speakers and amplifiers the more resistence a wire has the more static you will hear in the lines.....I hope this helps you out

How to hook autotek693T speakers in cparice classic 1992???


yeah, you are going to have to cut off that factory speaker connection, but leave a few inches of wire on the end so you can re-attatch that connector later, should you sell the car, re-install the factory speakers and keep your after market speakers for another car. one of the wires has a stripe on them, (never mind the color) connect the stripe factory wires to the stripe speaker wires with 'wire-nuts', or twist the bared wire and tape them with electrical tape, the stripe wire to the positive speaker post. the other wire will of course go to the negative speaker post. once you have both speakers wired up, play some music with good bass, and move your speaker balance from one side to the other, if your speakers are connected properly you will hear more bass with both speakers than with the balance all the way left, or all the way right.

Hooking up amp and subwoofer to stock radio


Are you sure that you want to attempt this?
It's a nightmare if you never have worked on any kind of car stereo. I've installed my share of after market stereos, so I know it's lots of brain work and patience.

The color of the speaker wires are the only wires that you can probably identify right off the bat. It's not too complicated to attempt yourself. If you have put in an after market stereo before. Your Lexus has factory installed rear deck speakers. Look at the bottom side of the rear deck. Pop your head in the trunk and look up.

On the right speaker there are 2 wires and on the left speakers there are 2 wires.

I think that all 1991 Lexus LS models came with factory installed rear deck speakers. The speaker wires are factory installed. You want to keep these original factory wires as is, but want some thicker higher wattage amp wires for your sub woofers, but write down the 2 left and 2 right speaker wire colors with the stripes, for example the red with yellow stripe, blue with red stripe, brown with orange stripe, black with white stripe and so on. There are four wires in all. Keep your wire colors on a piece of paper, because we come back to that later on.

You will need to run the thick red power cable to the car battery. That gets bolted directly down to the battery. You'll have to remove the bottom door jam that holds the carpet down. There might be a couple screws that you'll have to remove to pull up the jam. Tuck the red wire and lead wire in under the carpet and screw the jam back on when done. Do the same for the 4 thick higher amp speaker wires and route them to the back in the trunk.

Make sure to bolt the Black Ground Cable on the Chassis of the car for a good solid ground. The one thing that will cause a short is a loose ground wire or weak ground to the body.

Remove the radio from the dash. Be careful not to break the plastic around the radio. You should probably ask somebody for help, if you can not handle it yourself.

Now we need that piece of paper with the 2 left and 2 right wire colors with stripe laid out, you can do your splicing of wires. Simply splice the left and right speaker wires with the amp normal speaker wires that lead into the amp.
The amp may have stereo RCA jacks for input, I'm not sure which you have.

Make sure to match Left to Left and Right to Right. Now the AMP lead wire gets connected to the stereos power wire. This wire may be red or yellow, but I do not think it's gray. To test the wire splice into the yellow wire with the lead and start the car and turn it off. If the amp stays on with the car turned off, then change it to another wire. The goal is that it won't drain the battery with the car turned off.

There's some troubleshooting involve with factory installed stereos and making modifications. If you get this far you did a great job. You'll have it when the lead wire is connected and the car turns off and the amp turned off and when the car turns on and the amp turns on. Make sure you do not mess with the antenna wire. that turns on and then shuts off after the antenna is up.

DEH-1330R CAR CD PLAYER WHICH IS POWER WHICH IS SPEAKERS


Wiring is pretty much standard for all 4 channel radios. red is switched, yellow is your memory (constant power), black ground, purple/purple-blk, white/white-blk, grey/-grey-blk and green/green-blk all speakers the solids are positive and blk stripes are negatives. orange is illumination, blue maybe 2 are amp switched for power on/of and the other power anteanna. Its easiest to get a wiring harness for your car it will connect color to color and then plug directly into your factory harness with no splicing of the wires so when you trade in/sell your car the factory radio goes back in with ease.
