How to hookup 9 inch Rear Boss Car replacement speakers in a 1995 Dodge Neon 4-door Sport auto? Any polarity concerns? Which wires go where?

    The first expert did not help very much!

    The speakers each have two male tangs (receptacles), one a litle bit wider than the other, but neither is designated as "hot" or ground, and neither is grounded to the speaker frame. Each female plug in the car has two lead wires connected to two sockets, and each female socket in the plug is of the same width. Possibly one of these leads wires is grounded to the car ground. (I'll have to get a multimeter and measure the resistance to ground while the radio is on.) Can I cut the lead wires from the female plugs in the car and connect them to the female plugs that came with the speakers without any concern as to which wire connects to the the wider female socket and which wire connects to the narrower female socket?

It really does not mater what wire you put on what male connection. All that you are doing is making a loop with the wire. there is no + or - side of a speaker. If you do not believe me you can hook it up one way turn on radio and lesion to the sound then switch the wires to see if the sound is any better. You will not here a deference. Also you can cut the wire and put on any connectors that you would like.

Good Luck

You could get harnesses from best buy or a place that installs car audio.

they plug into the stock plugs so you don't have to cut them and they will only plug onto the correct tabs on the speakers.

That's the best way to do it. It costs a few dollars more by you won't be cutting wires.

If you insist on cutting the stock plugs off, use a digital multimeter to check which wire is positive and ground. Just turn on the radio and check each wire.

OR

On most speakers it will show you + and - next to each wire that on the speakers. You can see which wires would be + and -.

    Take a 9 volt battery and connect it to the tabs. It will either move out or in. when the speaker moves outward, what ever pole of the battery is on each tab is what polarity it is.

    Gee sorry I didn't help much. From professionally installing car stereos for a while, I just don't cut the stock wires ever. It causes problems. Especially if the care is leased or financed. You cannot modify vehicles like that when its leased or financed, so you just get into the habit of not cutting wires.

    The best way to do it, hands down is to purchase adapters for your car to speakers. Then it plugs right in with no cutting, and the tabs will only fit on the right tabs.

    As well there is usually a + and - stamped into the piece that holds the tabs.
