Decided after 2 years to finally put in my speakers, everything was pretty straight forward until I took out the old speakers. There were 4 wires in the door instead of 2, this is clearly something a previous ownder did their self judging by all the electrical tape and the colors on the wire were the same, so for example the power was a yellow wire with a red stripe, there were 2 of them. And the last thing I was wondering about...I was checking the voltage to see which wire was power and ground and on the drivers side door it read 2 volts, I did the same thing on the passenger side and it said 0. I didnt think much of it so I hooked it up and it seems to work fine but im thinking I shouldve tried the other 2 wires because maybe they have 2 volts going to it??? Also if it helps the ones im putting in are infinity reference

Logan;

The ex owner had components in that car so there were separate tweeters. Is the car still torn apart? Do you have any pictures?

No but it only take a few seconds to take off the door panel, I can later today, what about the voltage thing, what should it be reading on the wires with the key on?

That's kind of irrelevant. It depends on the deck honestly. The easiest way to make sure you have the correct wires is to hook a meter up behind the deck to the speaker wires (with the deck unplugged. Take your wires and touch them together until you see it go to zero ohms (or set it on continuity and do it that way). That way you know you have the pair that runs to the stereo. Odds are if you have sound, and it doesn't sound bad its okay.

My week is kinda screwed, but I might be able to help you Sunday evening if you can get to my house.

Logan, what model deck do you have?

I think you are talking about a highpass/lowpass filter (crossover) but not sure.

Seems like it has High / low pass filters.

Fuzzy meaning...... static? Double check your connections.
