I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, I need the 17 digit vin number of your vehicle, as well as the model and serial number of the original mazda radio unit so that I can pull the correct wiring diagrams to walk you thru it

right door speaker - yellow with red - positive, white with red - negative
