    Default Speaker wire, which is which?

    I am about to wire in a pair of rear tweeters. What wire is + and what wire is -. I don't have access to a Haynes manual and I'm not sure what wire colours relate to each polarity. I'd like to know the colours before I attempt the job as I dont already have the additional loom in place. Cheers

    Okay.. your rear wires will be paired

    rear left positive = Green
    rear left negative = green with brown stripe

    Rear right positive = white
    Rear right negative = white with brown stripe

    negative always has a stripe on it.

    Also - to confirm, the speakers themselves will have a + and a - stamped close to the pins for each wire.

    Also, it shows you the pin outs on the top of the head unit. You could work it out from there.

    It shows the pin out, but not the colour code..

    you would need to refer to the Quadlock connector, and then refer / compare to the pin out on the CD30... what a faff!!
