Speakers/3 color codes

Hi. I need someones help. I was given some speakers by a friend to install on my Ford Edge.

The speakers have 3 color codes on them, red, gray, and yellow.

I can tell the red one is the Positive, and gray should be the Negative.
What is the yellow for?

The speakers are 2 way plate speakers from Planet Audio, model VTX5702.

Thanks.

PS
My friends doesn't remember if the red and yellow need to be connected to the positive or not.

you have to run power wire and ground wires to setup the amp.
you have to purchase a hi/lo adapter if you have a stock stereo.
like this:

or have a professional do it for you, or a friend that can do it for you. if you have no knowledge in setting up an amplifier you risk burning down your car, hurt yourself or someone else.

How to connect an LOC to e39 1997 radio cassette


Hello randon_dicks,

The inputs to the LOC should be tapped from your rear speakers. If you have the color code of the wiring from either the cassette player or from the vehicle wiring, tap the wires behind the dash. If you do not have the color code, you can tap directly from the speakers. In either case, it's best to use good quality twisted pair wire and keep the wires as short as possible. Likewise, use good quality RCA cables from the LOC output to your amp location.

Hope this helps.

I have a fujitsu am/fm/cd/ tape player out of a 93 camry and would like to put it in a 95 camry but the color code for the wiring doesn't match and thats what I need , can you help Thanks John


Hello jrhauber,

The '93 and '95 Camry have identical color codes. Likewise, the vehicle harness connectors are the same.

Car Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Blue/Yellow
Car Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Gray
Car Radio Ground Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Illumination Wire: Green
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Black/Red

You can purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plugs into the OEM radio. The part number you need for a 1995 Camry is Metra 71-1761 available here for $9.99.

Hope this helps.

Hi i have a pioneer cd player that i am trying to install it


Pioneer follows the universal after-market color code, so if your CD player was made in the last ten years or so, the wires should go like this:

Yellow: Constant +12VDC (memory)
Red: key-switched +12VDC (accessory)
Black: Ground
Blue/white: amp remote or power antenna output

Speaker wires: The solid-color wire of each pair is positive; the black-striped wire is negative.

Left front: white
Right front: gray
Left rear: green
Right rear: violet

Hope this helps!

Amp is on but wont work...please help!!


Hello lillj2323,

OK, you say that the amp won't get your RF Punch's to pound. You do not say if you get any output at all. So let's start from the beginning.

The KAC-X542 is a multichannel amp with 2 sets of stereo outputs, 1 set of stereo outputs and 1 bridged connection for sub(s), or 2 bridged connections for sub(s).

Make sure that both 30A fuses just to the left of the power connections are good.

Check that the "ID number" is set to "0". Make sure that you have RCA inputs to both channels A and B (leftmost pairs of jacks). Your subs should be connected to the 1st (+) and 3rd (-) of each set of output terminals.

Make sure that there are no broken off plugs or pins in the jack marked "H/U Terminal" or either of the 2 jacks marked "remote".

Check that the amp is set up for 2-channel bridged. The 6 switches below the filter controls and the filter pots should initially be set:
1 - Middle position (off)
2 - Up position (on)
3 - Down position (off)
4 - Up position (mono)
5 - Down position (off)
6 - Up position (mono)
The pots should be set approximately:
LPF - minimum
HPF - maximum
Input Sensitivity - match your head unit - probably between 1 - 3
HPF - maximum
Input Sensitivity - match your head unit - probably between 1 - 3
After you get the speakers working, the LPF, HPF and Input Sensitivity can be tweaked for best sound and lowest distortion.

Hope this helps.

NEED TO KNOW WHICH WIRE ARE WHAT ON DELPHI TRUCK RADIO


Hello,

You may wish to consider purchasing a wiring harness that will allow you to plug directly into the vehicle harness without tapping or splicing. Here's a link to one such item: This one appears to be for your vehicle.

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_5944_PAC+ADD-GM24.html

Installer.com shows the following color code for the radio and speaker wiring for the 2007 GMC Sierra.

Speakers
--------
White: (LF+)
White/Black: (LF-)
Violet/Black: (RR-)
Violet: (RR+)
Green: LR+
Green/Black: LR-
Gray: RF+
Gray/Black: RF-

Radio
-----
Black: Ground
Red: +12volt Acc Switched
Yellow: +12volt Battery Constant
Blue/White: +12v Remote Output (Amp Turn On)
Red/White: Reverse Light Trigger
Yellow/Black: Parking Break Trigger
Orange/White: Auto Illumination
Blue: Powered Antenna
Orange: Illumination
Brown: Phone Mute (optional)
I would recommend that you verify the speaker wires before doing any splicing.

Attach a speaker to a pair of test probes and leaving the harness in and working, probe the back of each pair as coded above to insure that they really are the correct wires. Most likely you will want to convert the rears to low-level, so start with those. Probe the Violet(+)/Violet Black(-) pair and you should get sound in your test speaker. Likewise, do the Green(+)/Green Black(-) pair.

The only other wire you would need from the stock radio for an external amp would be the blue/white turn-on lead and if your LOC has audio sensing turn-on, you may not even need that. Bring power to your amp directly from the battery (fused according to amp manufacturer recommendations) and find a ground within 3 ft or so of where you intend to mount the amp.

Hope this helps.
