JK Speaker wire color chart and other helpful data

This info is for a 2010 2 door with the standard audio system. Other JK models may or may not match.

Front Left:
Gray/Violet + (Green)
Gray/Yellow - (Red)
6.5 inch round speaker, 4 inch maximum depth

Front Right:
Dark Green/Violet + (Green)
Dark Green/Yellow - (Red)
6.5 inch round speaker, 4 inch maximum depth
(Colors in parentheses are for the factory speaker pod internal wiring.)

Rear Left:
Black/White +
Dark Green -
6.5 inch round speaker, 3.5 inch maximum depth

Rear Right:
Light Blue +
Light Green -
6.5 inch round speaker, 3.5 inch maximum depth

The factory head unit is woefully underpowered, so don't be surprised to get a fair amount of bass distortion when you use a set of decent aftermarket speakers. It cannot provide adequate wattage to drive aftermarket speakers accurately. I had to turn my bass settings down to -3 to eliminate the distortion. An aftermarket head unit or amp will clear it up.

I know this is old, but thanks for this write-up. Im installing an audiocontrol lc6i between the head unit and two seperate amps. One powering focal speakers in front and sound bar, one powering sub in back of my 2010 sport with the basic 130 stock head unit. I'm hoping this fixes all the muddy bass in the speakers.
