okay i found something but it doesnt tell me the color codes.'


Regarding the front 4 x 6 speakers, DO NOT expect your Haynes manual to be much help. IF YOU HAVE AIR CONDITIONING in your jeep wrangler this is tricky, but approachable. If you don't it will be much easier. Notice the six or seven torx bolts you have on the left and right ends of the dash. There should be three in the triangular plate between the windshield and dash and three or four down the side edges. Remove these, don't worry between the roll bars and the windshield hinges everything should remain intact. The dash is "free", BUT what'll need to be done is to JUST tilt the bottom of it out toward the front seats. Now the 4 x 6 speaker backs will be easier to access for removal. There are just 4 small pathetic excuses for nuts securing each speaker in place. The factory plugs will not work with the aftermarket speakers, just reference the colour coding above and splice in respectively. ON THIS JOB with the 4 x 6 speakers, I will say I'd rather set my hair on fire and beat it out with a set of track spikes as to go through learning it the hard way again.

another way to tell what wire is + & - is use a regular 9v battery.. when u have the speaker pick a wire hooked up to the speaker (as in harness that was cut off) then hold 1 of the wires on the - side of the 9v battery.. tap the other to the + if the speaker moves up (away from magnet) then you have the correct wires for + & -, if it moves twards the magnet then switch wires.

i only trust manuels etc so much bc over the years have found alot that have been wrong
