Tucson door speaker wiring colors?

I bought some Kicker 6.5 speakers to install in the front and rear doors of my 2016 Tucson, but the project has come to a halt as the positive/negative speaker wires are not labeled on the factory speakers or harness.


Can someone tell me the combination to wiring new speakers in?

Can't tell you specifically which wires are which.. but here's a couple general tips that may or may not be accurate, but are good to know anyways..

1) the positive wire - should be - a solid color, with the negative having a stripe on the wire.
2) the positive wire - should be - silver if you can see the actual strands, the negative should be copper color.
3) it's not super important to wire them in "correct" positive and negative positions... as long as you connect all speakers in the same way. you don't want one speaker connected correctly and the other reversed, the cones of the speaker will be operating in reverse of each other. so as long as both speakers are wired the same way, negative can be positive and positive can be negative.
4) if you really want to know which is positive and negative then you can use a 9v battery to connect to the speaker terminals... -- generally -- the positive terminal will cause the speaker cone to expand out and if connected in reverse than the cone will suck in.

I'm sure it won't be long until someone chimes in with the actual wiring colors.. good luck!

Thanks Tenergy, but somewhat wrong. Replacing 4 door speakers with incorrect wiring connections will contradict with the sub and center channel. I'd agree if we were talking about only 4 speakers wired the same way.

So here's the good news for others who come across the same problem. I got the wiring code from a local car stereo shop who pulled it up on a specific installer's database. codes are for positive connection:

front left = white
front right = red
rear left = black
rear right =green

And so far based on using the existing speaker as a bracket for the new speakers you can align the terminals directly with the new speaker's inputs so when soldering the terminals you have negative to negative and positive to positive.

To clarify:
This is when using the old speaker as the new bracket for the new speaker, so after wiring the new speaker to the bracket's prior connection points you can still use the quick connect fastener from the factory door wiring to connect it to the bracket just like it was originally.
