The 94-95 GTP has a built in amp. Those are what the extra wires are. You have to have it re-wired or you have to use factory speakers. =) Found this out today.

The other wires in the back by the speakers are NOT speaker wires. It is possible to cause a short circuit in your car and or damage your unit by hooking up the wires from stereo to non speaker wires. Smoke from the dash is never a good sign. Hopefully nothing is shorted. These are the correct wire diagrams for your car. Hook them up just as described and you will have sound in no time:) If there is no sound check all fuses. Hope this helps.......Let me know what happens.......GOOD LUCK

Left rear (+) is Brown wire. Connect that with the Green wire.
Left rear (--) is Yellow wire. Connect that with the Green/Black wire
Right rear (+) is Dark Blue wire. Connect that with the Purple wire
Right rear (--) is Light Blue wire. Connect that with the Purple/Black wire.

I have a total of ten speakers in my van and i want to know the best way to connect these speakers to my after market cd player they are all regular speakers not subs


I would pick the 4 closest ones and connect them..if your radio has rca connectors on it you can hardwire an amp for the 4 back ones..ulimately its up to how you want to hear the radio most of the time..

pioneer gm 6500 is a 4 ch amp rated at 60w-4 way to small of an amp to run your sub. UNDER-POWERING your sub is more likely to damage spkr than over-powering. my advice,get mono-block to run sub

Keeps shutting off automatically and flashes Protect before it shuts down ??


FIRST DISS-CONNECT POWER FROM RECEIVER.... DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY SERVICE / TROUBLESHOOTING PROCEDURES TO ELECTRICAL DEVICES PRIOR TO REMOVING ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that the power cord is unplugged we can start. We shall start this repair by doing the easiest tests/checks first. That DOES NOT MEAN that just because the test is easy, its not very important.... every recommendation to follow is JUST as important as the next! (even if what is asked to be checked sounds un-important... its not! Follow this advice and YOU WILL RESOLVE YOUR ISSUE! TRUST ME... YOU WILL FIX THIS issue & before the days over.... SMILE & BE HAPPY! OK...... lets get started) First lets Check the power cord... unpluged? Sure hope so! Now the first thing that you have to do is check ALL the speaker connections at both ends!!!!!!!! (@ speaker & Receiver) Be certain ALL connections are tight & that NO strands of wire are shorting out the connections by touching each other...... the ends of ALL speaker wires must be seperate from each other at all times!!!! Each wire must ONLY be connected to one post/connector!!!!! Only ONE speaker should be connected to each terminal.... do not connect additional speakers to connections at any time!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY ONE can be applied to EACH OUTPUT TERMINAL!!!!!! If the speakers your using are fuse protected check fuses or circuit breakers accordingly. One open circuit (unconnected output terminal) or shorted (wires touching together) will immediatelly trigger receiver to SHUT DOWN!!!!!!! Receiver MUST have a load (speaker) connected to each speaker output to operate properly. Should all wires be found connected properly after checking at both speaker terminals & receiver terminals & problem is still accuring after reapplying power....... additional resistance checks must be made using an OHM Meter (available at most harware stores). If one of the speakers being used has burned out / gone bad / broke...... the only way to determine this condition is via a resistance measurment. Disconnect the speaker wire from the back of each speaker prior to doing resistance check!!! (a false reading will be observed if the speaker wire is still connected during this test) Now touch each of the two speaker terminals with one of the meter leads (the meter must be set to OHMS or RESISTANCE during this test for proper reading). The resistance reading observed should be NO LESS THAN 3 OHMS & NO MORE THAN 10 OHMS !!!!!!!!! Should the resistance/ohm's value of any speaker being used / connected to the receiver be found by the OHM Meter to read LESS than 3 OHMS = speaker shorted... MUST be replaced! Should the resistance/ohm's value of any speaker being used / connected to the receiver be found by the OHM Meter to read MORE than 10 OHMS = speaker open.... Must be replaced! Connecting damaged speakers to any receiver for a prolonged period of time WILL DAMAGE RECEIVER!!!!!!! Speaker resistance MUST be between 3 & 10 ohms to avoid damage to output transistors in receiver.... when receiver senses less than a resistance of 3 or more of a resistance than 10 @ ANY speaker terminal during operation................. IMMEDIATE AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN OF RECEIVER WILL OCCURE!!!!!!! You've got a bad speaker or a loose speaker wire or a shorted speaker wire...... check each of your speaker connections/terminals & you'll find your problem! When you do find a loose or shorted wire associated with the speakers......... you'll have found your problem! Trust me.... you CAN do it!!!! and when you do... you will SMILE !!!!!!!! & be HAPPY!!!!!!!
GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

Will any 6x9 speakers fit my 2002 pontiac grand am in the rear deck?


I recently helped to replace the rear speakers in a 2001 (or 2002?) Grand Am GT.
It depends on the type of stereo you have. Look at the wires going to the rear speakers. If there are two wires to each, I'm pretty sure that almost any 6X9 speaker will work.

My friend had a Monsoon system, and there were 4 wires at each speaker. There are only a few speakers that can be used on this system. As I recall, the ohm resistance is different from typical speakers. If you have a 4-wire system, you should do some reading at these websites to see what speakers to use:
http://www.gaownersclub.com/forum/index.php
http://www.grandamgt.com/
or try http://www.crutchfield.com/

I did read at one of the above Forums that there are GM replacement speakers (better than original):
"I just ordered two new Monsoon rear speakers from www.gmpartsdirect and they were only $85 shipped. They are a new part number which have been updated with better cones to help prevent blowing, part number is 22698418 " If you go with GM Monsson speakers, also try Ebay. Good Luck.

SOMEONE GAVE ME SOME BOSE 6X9 CAR AUDIO SPEAKERS. THE SPEAKER HAS FOUR HOOK UP WIRES. TWO TO THE TOP OF THE SPEAKER AND TWO TO THE BOTTOM. MY QUESTION IS WHEN INSTALLING THESE SPEAKERS IS IT OK TO MAKE...


Hook up the speaker wire like this...Positive wire to positive terminal on top then run a loop from the top positive to the bottom positive. Next run the negative wire to the negative terminal on the bottom then run a loop from the bottom negative to the top negative.

Got no manual for ts6977 6x9 speaker. Which terminal is positive. Small or large? cheeers


In electrical, small terminal is usually the powered / live terminal. Large is the return or ground connection.

Tried to find a manual for you, but Pioneer's website is having a lot of issues with time out errors.
