    ok, today i was trying to replace the old worn stock speakers of a 93 dodge spirit. i bought a new pair already only to find out the stock speakers have 4 wires (red/green/black/grey) on them. as far as i know most speakers nowadays have only 2 (including mine). but i tried it on anyways. i tried to connect the 2 ends of my new speakers to the 3 wires (4 minus the black wire) and every combination gives me no bass at all. there is sound but just no bass. what can i do now? please help....

    What kind of speakers are they? Is there a seperate tweter and woofer? Do you see any capacitors or inductors?

    i don't really know what kind but there's a big piece of plastic on the back side. inside it i can see some kind of ciruit and all 4 wires are attached to it.

    Hmm, sounds like the speakers are biamplified possibly. I cant tell for sure without a picture though. Is there any way you could take a few pictures of it?

    info just found on the web.... i guess it's logically enough to try out


    "Your speaker cable has four wires just for the sake of getting the best signal possible to your speakers. So just use two of the wires to one terminal and the other two for the other terminal. Ya probably want to go all black wires for the black terminal and the others to the red terminal to lessen the confusion. Nevertheless, the four wires should be the same"

    Well, looking at them, quite frankly I do not know what all those electronic parts add up to be. I thought they might be a crossover, but now I doubt it.

    It COULD be an amplifier, but I wouldnt think so. Hopefully someone else will know what it is.

    I would not follow that information. Can you give me a link to its source? Is that guy talking SPECIFICALLY about your speakers?

    Nope, that is refering to something totally different (and rediculous)
