Both, black to black and red to red, or use the color coded plugs that may be in your units. If there aren't any, try either way; it won't hurt the speakers or the radio.

I have the ROADPRO RPPS-550 4 Noise Cancelling CB Extension Speaker with Talkback, why is there 2 male plugs and where do they get plugged in at. One obviously to the CB radio. The other ???

Both should go to the CB radio. One would be for "audio out" from the radio, the other should be for "audio in" to the radio to handle the "Talkback" feature. I doubt that most CB radios will support this. Your best bet is to determine which plug provides output to the speaker (so you have better audio output from your CB - if that's actually possible) and disregard the 2nd plug if your radio doesn't support it. Hope this helps.

My Clarion AM/FM,CDMP3,marine radio will play when...

    I had the same issue with a blown speaker that was shorting it
    self out. I found this on "" site.

    Step 1: Disconnect all the speakers from the head unit and try again. If the same message comes up, send the unit in for service.
    Step 2: If the message goes away, you have a wiring problem. Check each speaker lead for a short circuit, damaged speaker or a ground to chassis.

    Basically means one set (or more) of the speaker leads are touching each other (shorting out). This can be somewhere inline to your speakers or your speakers them selves. The advise above isn't to clear. In the first step they want to rule out the speakers attached but "disonnecting all the speakers" is vague. You should disconnect at the rear of the radio. This might be difficult because the multi plug in the back has the speakers and power wires together (at least most clarions). Also if it was a good install then the outgoing speaker wires were soldered to the long run speaker wires going to the speakers.
    To truly test for radio fault verses the wiring or speakers, you have to sever the connection at the back of the radio. If this is not something you wish to do then there is one suggestion. Order a new multi plug for the back of the radio. This way you can pull the old plug and test it with a new plug with no speakers attached (just have to run 12v positive and negative).
    If the radio is OK then start by checking all the wires to your speakers (if possible). If nothing seems bare and shorting (remember it's usually in tight places or were the wires are hanging loose that vibration will cause cutting to the wire) then disconnect all your speakers (at the rear of the speakers). Turn the radio back on and see if it does the error message again. If not reattach the speakers one by one checking for the error message.
    You can check these in any order. If you don’t want to order a new plug then you and can’t get to much of the wiring to physically check then starting at the speakers is OK.

I need a wiring diagram for installing 2 LT980-2

do you need help just for the power or for the audio or both?

power it is simple
positive goes to the battery but with a fuse in the middle
negative goes to a metal ground point on the car (but not battery)
remote goes to the radio with should have a blue and white cable if radio does not have remote line then use the acc wire from radio

for sound
your amp does two speakers and im guessing you want the back ones amplified
so cut the 4 wires that come from the radio and goes to the back speakers 2 positive and two negative
and connect this to the input the phono terminals on the back (unless your radio has phono terminals for audio out on the back side

then take the output from the amp and run it to the speakers one positive and negative to each speaker

i cant seem to find a wiring diagram for that amplifier but i can give you a more genral diagram

I have the Kd-S550, I need the wire connections . thanks

yellow goes to positive of the battery

red goes to the acc of the ignition(0volts whn car is off 12volts when car is on)

blue goes to a amplifier remote terminal if you have on if not the tape over the exposed copper

black goes to ground

the white of the speaker is that coming from the radio or from the car?
if it is from the radio then connect it to one side of the speaker

you need the cars radio wiring instructions and radio wiring intructions and double check each wire

I just bought a factory radio to put in my Eclipse. After hooking up all the plugs, radio comes on but no sound comes out of the speakers.

Are you sure that there are speakers currently installed in the vehicle? There may not be, I have seen vehicles that didn't come with factory radios not come with speakers either. If you do have speakers you may want to take the deck back to where you purchased it and show them the problem. If you purchased it online, then you may be stuck with what might actually be a dead unit.
