I need the order of the color coded wires on the conector for a Dual model xd122 please


If you are installing a radio, I recommend you purchase a wiring harness. You will hook your radio up to it and then be able to "plug" your radio in. It has the wiring color codes on the package.

I need Only color coding for wiring diagram for cdx-gt550


If you are planning to install your radio, I recommend you purchase a wiring harness specific for your vehicle. All aftermarket radios are standardized in wiring colors. The harness will have the diagram to hook your radio to the harness. The problem with hardwiring a radio is the wiring colors don't match, and hooking it up wrong could fry your entire electrical system. You can find a harness at www.crutchfield.com Hope this helps.

I need a color coding of the wiring for the harness i was given for my kenwood dpx308u. i just need to know which colors belong to which wires


Ok, you should have a wiring harness that plugs into the radio. That comes with the radio. You will need a wiring harness that is specific to your vehicle, this will plug into the vehicle harness. The wiring harness will have the correct colors to attach your radio to it. All aftermarket radios have standardized wiring. I recommend not attempting to hardwire your radio due to the risk of frying your entire electrical system. I hope this helps.

I need radio color codes for a 2001 fordranger


The simplest way to figure out wire colors on the ford is to purchase the radio wiring harness from a stereo shop like a Metra or Scosche harness and match the aftermarket wiring color code to the opposite side (vehicle side) of the radio plug. If you are just replacing speakers, then removing the speaker from the car with the plug attached, you can easily figure out polarity. Just connect a 9v battery to the speaker leads on the speaker (NOT THE CAR) for a second will make the cone either pop out or **** in. When the cone pops out, note the polarity of the + on the 9v battery. This is the positive for the speakers. Hope this helped.
