How to I tackle replacing (rear) car speakers when there's a special connector?
posted by Blazecock Pileon to technology (4 answers total)
The rear speakers on my car blew out. Took the bass too low. Ah well. So I bought new ones, and I am taking the old ones out:
Original rear speaker
It looks like I need to clip off the white connector from the original speaker, and solder it to the new speakers. The white connector plugs into a special audio wire from the car electronics.
My question is, simply: Which side of the connector goes to which connection on the speaker?
There are no markings on or around the connector port to mark which is which. Should I just follow the orientation of the wiring on the original speaker?
