Since there is no factory harness in the picture, you have two options to consider. You can either fashion a new harness for the factory wires that will plug into your head unit harness or solder your head unit harness directly to the factory wires.
Can I wire speakers directly to head unit?
1 Answer. You won’t be able to hook everything up they way you’ve described. The RCA outputs of your head unit are too low to power the speakers – they are for connecting to an amplifier only. You will need to connect your speakers to either the speaker-level outputs of your head unit or to a separate amplifier.
How do you connect bare wire to speakers?
- Unscrew the red or black cap – insert the bare speaker wire into the hole in the post (or insert a spade connector around the post) – tighten the cap again.
- Insert the wire into the opening at the end of each post.
Can you wire speakers directly to amp?
Connect 4 speaker wires to right and left inputs on the amp.
Be sure to connect the red wires to the positive terminal, and the black wires to the negative terminal. Once all the wires are in place, use a screwdriver to tighten the terminals and speaker wires in place.
