Thanks Jomor - think you have misunderstood though, I was not trying to understand with the clip to the left, just was trying to clarify initially if you first diag was for the clip or HU, as at that stage I hadn't seen it. But all is very clear ref the clip now thanks, no probs at all, (though you and hoygs disagree which way round the Left and right pins are, both with the clip to the right
- but from the CD you
are certainly right
Sorry Hoygs, but thank you).
Need to bear in mind that LHD and RHD have completly reversed wiring for the fronts, and euro 3 is different again (and mine is a mix of both, with some odd wires thrown in!)
The problem is wire colour is important especially for the fronts, where the wires at the clip are different to the speaker?
So I look at the clip pin; I know from your diag that a given pin is the +ve for the front R speaker for e.g. I look at the speaker end, but how do i then know which of those 2 wires is the +ve to match the connector end, especially when the colours at one end are totally different to the other? As I say the rear is easy as the colours match.
actually........DOH..... I just had a thought
! rather than connect the battery direct to the actual speaker, I can just connect battery to the relevant connector
pins, and if the speaker cone jumps out, its wired ok (who cares about the colour), if the cone jumps in, then I need to switch the wires at the speaker end around
oh thats a great idea so simple
,- not sure that was what was ment for the battery, but it solves my problem!! cheers guys
that is the easy way to check your phase, dont even need to remove speakers to check - connect the battery to the HU CONNECTOR and watch the relevant speaker....DOH
Juis suis un idiot!
Still leaves the tweeter problem, FR, as the wire colours for main and tweet are different, so I can do above and get main speaker correct, but then cant match the tweeter wires to see if thats right? except the battery and bulb trick, send a current down the connectors +ve tweeter wire and see which wire at the tweeter makes the circuit? Lush
Je suis un genius
I feel like I am havign a conversation with myself typing this reply!
Really, dont they say thats a sign of madness?
Some do, but really i see it as confidence in your self
Oh, but do you think thats misplaced?
Not really, everyone needs and edge, a little bit of madness keeps others on their toes, you know?
