most car stereos are simple to wire, especially sony!
Main power cable colours are:.. RED = LIVE (+) BLACK = NEGATIVE (-) YELLOW = MEMORY/SWITCH LIVE it will be next to the red and black cables ORANGE AND WHITE = ELECTRIC ARIAL (IF FITTED) BLUE = REMOTE WIRE (FOR AMP CONTROL IF USING) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You should now be left with a couple of audio out jacks and speaker cables,
the speaker cables are straightforward, most have a twin, ...E.G if you have a grey wire, this should be next to a grey and white (or grey and black, depends on model) wich is classed as its PAIR/TWIN.............
an so forth,...green, purple, white, brown.....ect ect
each colour havin a twin as stated ealier!! (they are twinned, as the solid colour is usually the negative speaker, and the solid colour with a stripe through it is usually the posative speaker connection (eg..single solid colour is (-)...and...solid colour with stripe is posetive (+)...)
You'll notice there are no facilities for balancing the relative volumes in the electronics. After-market speakers of unknown sensitivities would be impossible to match if it could even drive them sufficiently loud.
Stereo sytems have a protection circuit that alerts you by displaying "protect" when there is a electrical short circuit detected in the system, the most common short happens in a speaker, try disconnectig the speaker wires of both speakers(all speakers) at the back of the system, then play the CD or cassette player(although you will not hear anything with the speakers disconnected) and see if the unit goes into "protect" mode if the problem is still present then you have an internal short circuit and the system will need to be sent in for service or replaced(depending on age,repair costs). I would not recommend investing more than $80 into repairs. Now, if the unit does not go into "protect mode" then one of the speakers or speaker wires is shorted,be sure you check the conndition of the speaker wires before you replace the speakers, then you can replace the speakers(in a pair) and you should be back up and listening! Good luck and Merry Christmas !
Are you looking for connectors on speakers or need wires that hooked in speaker and home theater system? Please intimate model number that is written on main home theater system to provide you info about speaker wires.
If the wires have just bare ends plugged into spring-loaded contacts then you can get some twin lead from radio shack or walmart. Just make sure you match the colors from the stereo to the speakers otherwise you might not get real stereo or surround.
