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.

Someone cut the front door speaker wires and dont know the polarity or color codes please help 2000 ford mustang convertable


One wire should be a solid color and is the + wire to the speaker connection, the other wire should be a two colored wire, but will have a small color stripe running along the length, this is the - side connection.

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio


This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.

Need color code 2003 f250 for radio


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On 2003 Ford F250 trucks we have worked on, the below wire color scheme is used. Of course it would be to your advantage to perform a voltage check on the wires on OFF and ACC condition of the ignition switch. Further, continuity of the speaker through the speaker wires would also help.

I cant install Computer Speakers can someone help me? i installed computer speaker and all i get is humming sound i have three jacks one is pink blue green on compaq presarrio jbl platinum series


Make sure the jacks are in the correct sockets (as color-coded) and plugged all the way in.

If that still does not work, your speakers are faulty, and you will need to get them replaced.
