I recently got a Mazda3 2012 Hatchback with 4 speakers non-bose.
I am starting with the speakers right now because I got a $100 gift card to Bestbuy, and the stereo I want is too much. I know they don't have a ton of selections, but I think I got decent speakers. I searched them on cruchfield/around the web and these seems like the best option I could buy at Bestbuy.
They mount fine, but I do not know how to wire them.
(Copy/paste link into address bar and put ht(t)p:// before every link without the parenthesis around the 't') I don't know why I can't post links.
This is the connector/wires going to stock speaker in the front door: i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt212/eurosport360/2013-01-01_16-40-52_296_zps7b9d14aa.jpg
4 wires fed into the two middle metal prongs in the 4slot connector: i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt212/eurosport360/2013-01-01_16-41-00_618_zps918afcf0.jpg
This is it plugged in: i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt212/eurosport360/2013-01-01_21-00-14_980_zpse599f380.jpg
This is the port: i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt212/eurosport360/2013-01-01_21-00-41_11_zpsd5033999.jpg As you can see, its 4 prongs but only the center two on the plug are being used on the plug.
I have wire strippers, pliers for crimping, hairdryer for a heatgun, and splices. I got the flat disconnects for the flat metal connector on the new speakers. i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt212/eurosport360/2013-01-01_16-41-26_665_zpsa3cfd14c.jpg
The flat disconnectors I bought go over the flat connectors on the speaker: i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt212/eurosport360/2012-12-31_14-52-36_418_zpsee530a4a.jpg
I actually exchanged those 5.25s for 6 x 8s, but they have the same connector.
Right now I am just stuck on how to wire these up with those 4 wires....I assume they are just duplicate positives and negatives... I need some details though....this is my first time doing anything electrical.
