Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.

Expert:  Car Audio Rusty replied 26 days ago.

Red is ignition power.

Yellow is constant power.

Black is ground.

The remaining 8 are speaker wires. Turn the radio on once you get the power connected. Connect a set of speaker wires to determine which speaker the wire goes to. Set the fader to front, set the balance to left, and this will determine which speaker output is which. Do this for all of the speakers, and pay attention to polarity.

The unit I have is strictly a DVD player, not a radio. The colours that are there are yellow, black and orange then in another group is black with tracer purple with tracer and green with tracer. I am assuming that the last 3 are the stereo sound output to the radio. I am also guessing from what you replied that in the first group the black is ground, yellow is constant power and the orange would be ignition?
Expert:  Car Audio Rusty replied 25 days ago.

Yes, that is correct. The ones with the tracers are the - lead to the speaker. Start a DVD, and use your fader and balance to output to the individual speakers, and you'll have it connected properly in no time.
